Currently it is Thursday, one more work day till the weekend. I have been pushing forward with my 10k running and even thinking about trying to move into the Half Marathon training app after this one is done. Just hope my knee holds up.
The summer months are making things a little slower, a little more relaxed, a little more productive at least in outdoor activities and I can’t say I hate it. Hopefully it carries into the fall. Though I am not wishing summer away so keep your Starbucks special cups and Halloween decorations in storage a little longer. Thanks!
I am not sure where this idea for Currently posts came from but it seems dating back to 2013 it was a hop found here. Here is my take on it.
Watching: Big Brother – Did I just watch Devin smack his own butt?!
Reading: Before I Go – This may have come too close after In The Mirror but I am really liking the main character a lot more than I did the other one.
Twenty-seven-year-old Daisy already beat breast cancer three years ago. How can this be happening to her again?
On the eve of what was supposed to be a triumphant “Cancerversary” with her husband Jack to celebrate three years of being cancer-free, Daisy suffers a devastating blow: her doctor tells her that the cancer is back, but this time it’s an aggressive stage four diagnosis. She may have as few as four months left to live. Death is a frightening prospect—but not because she’s afraid for herself. She’s terrified of what will happen to her brilliant but otherwise charmingly helpless husband when she’s no longer there to take care of him. It’s this fear that keeps her up at night, until she stumbles on the solution: she has to find him another wife.
With a singular determination, Daisy scouts local parks and coffee shops and online dating sites looking for Jack’s perfect match. But the further she gets on her quest, the more she questions the sanity of her plan. As the thought of her husband with another woman becomes all too real, Daisy’s forced to decide what’s more important in the short amount of time she has left: her husband’s happiness—or her own?
Listening: To silence, it really is golden! 😉
Making: Weird faces at Seamus. He follows me around the house and then he flashes his smile at me. I have to give him back something.
Planning: What I might make for next week’s recipe swap. Dessert? Drink? Dinner? Decisions, Decisions.
Loving: This story of Lowe’s employees helping a Vietnam Veteran when his wheelchair gave out in the store. He lost his legs to a landmine when he was just 20 years old. The employees would not let him leave till his wheelchair was like new. See.. you can always be the change.
Happy Friday Eve everyone. Hope it is a good one.
What are you up to currently?
does he ever wink at you? charlie does all the time! i wink back, of course 😉
Yes!!! I always wink back in case it is his secret code of tell me he loves me! 😉

Currently…procrastinating in writing a paper. I love these kinds of posts…it gives readers an inside peek into our favorite blogs. 🙂 Happy Thursday!
Writing papers are tough, totally impressed you are going for it! I do love the random sneak peaks into our thoughts. Happy Thursday!
What, you aren’t ready for all things pumpkin? lol I’m with you, definitely not ready for all things fall yet. We can keep the Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the back room for a little while longer!
Yes, way to early to be starting yet. Fall is my favorite season but I am just not ready yet.
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
That’s a great be the change story!
Today is my Friday. We won’t be at home, but we’ll be relaxing where we’re going so I can’t wait!
It was so sweet it got me teary. He has been waiting on the VA for 2 years for a new chair. Always restores my faith in people to read those stories. I am so jealous of all these 3 day weekends you have, best time of year for them though. Enjoy it!!
I watch BB too! I really hope they stick with the plan to evict Devin tonight!
I hope so, he is a snake in the grass!!

Love that sweet Seamus face!
It gets me every time!!

Thanks for sharing that last story- I think so often we skip the positive news and hear only about the negative! Before I go sounds so good but sad! I just started The Husband’s Secret and am hoping I can get into it!
It was such a great story and shows that people do help each other out. It is not too bad, and has some humor. The Husband’s Secret was just okay for me, but a lot of people liked it.
Kateri Von Steal says
I make silly faces at my cats.. I don’t think they appreciate it as much as Seamus does though!!!
And I love that they helped the Veteran. That is truly special… and is so positive.. I hope someone else passed along that “change” and kept it going. So inspiring.
I think I would be crying my eyes out with that book. Just saying, I’m a closet BOOK cryer! Hahaha
Thursday is a big day in my world!
I got three posts going on today… Please come check them out!
First – Best of you: Energy
Second – Tabata Thursday
Third – Twit Thursdays!
Happy Thursday Lady!
Haha! Yeah cats are a little more indifferent to us humans. Hopefully it pushed others to give back. So far I haven’t cried but it has been mostly them dealing with it and her trying to find a new wife for her husband. More laughs than tears so far. Wow three posts in one day?! That is a lot.
that book sounds good, but i dont know if i can do any more sad books lol
Haha!! I thought the same thing but it isn’t as sad as I thought it would be. I mean she is trying t find a wife for her husband, silliness has to happen. Right?!

Watching Colin in the pool while Riley cries
About nothing. Pre-PMS I guess.
I really wish out congress would stop being greedy
Lower their perks and never- ending benefits
And give our veterans the care they deserve.
Greed is so ugly and Viet Nam vets were
Drafted. Good God. Sending light and love and
More positive energy into the universe.
Have a happy day. love, SMD’s momma
I couldn’t agree more. My Dad was a Vietnam Vet and he didn’t start getting benefits until just recently. The red tape involved is ridiculous. The things they sacrificed for us, they deserve so much more than what we give them. Have a happy day!

I love all your doggie photos! He’s just too cute. 🙂 I’m currently doing some training for work, but I’m secretly reading blogs. Hah
He really make it hard to leave in the morning. Haha! Sounds like a great day so far! 😉
I’ve been watching Big Brother too for the first time, and I still don’t really understand how the game is played! Head of Household, saving people, on the block? WHo knows. I just watch for their silly antics.
Yes, I stopped watching a few seasons ago but a friend told me they had a few hotties this year. So of course I had to watch and now I am sucking into the vortex of BB. 🙂
I’ve been watching BB on demand with Tyson, we like to watch a week’s worth of shows at one time so we don’t have to wait for the next show. We haven’t started this week’s shows yet but after tonight it’s on!
It is getting good. I am hoping this week’s eviction goes through but there might be a twist. Duh duh duhnnnnn. 🙂
Love that lowes story, truly heart warming! And that Seamus….too cute!!!
It was so kind and really shows that people do care, and do help when given the chance.
Melanie at Ribbons and Rotor Blades says
I want the same kind of weekend. Sadly, we have too many plans. I just want to bum around and do nothing though!
I love the bum around kind of weekends. Sorry you have so many plans. I guess that is not a bad thing, but I get what you mean when you just want a weekend of peace and quiet. Though not sure you can have a peace and quiet weekend ever with your two meatheads! Haha! I adore them though.
The Preppy Student says
OMG your dog seamus is precious. I have that book as one of my next to read- let me know how you like it!
Thank you, and to think he was the one no-one wanted. Besides me of course. So far I am really like it but I will be sure to share my final review.
Same here with planning! I started researching new recipes last night to make for the recipe swap 😉 Seamus is too cute!
I have a few ideas i just need to flush them out. Looking forward to sharing! 🙂 Thank you, he is my heart.
I definitely want to read Before I Go- I loved PS I Love You too!
I think it is very much along those line. Ohhh now I need to watch that movie again. 😉
Doggie smiles are my favorite!!! That looks like one happy Seamus!
Love the Lowe’s story!
He is just so smiley. Love him! It was so awesome and give me faith in people.
That vet story was really very sweet! Its always good to know there are still good people around!
It broke my heart he had to wait that long, but I loved that they stepped up to help him.
Big Brother is crazy! It’s kind of amazing how insane things can get in there sometimes!
I know, I haven’t watched in a few seasons but it a good season so far. Such crazy antics for sure.
Seamus is such a happy little boy! 🙂
He is such a good boy!
