Currently - July

Today is July 1st - my parents' 45th wedding anniversary.
Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!  I love you!
My mom & dad at my daughter's college graduation 2 months ago.
I am joining Farley @ Oh Boy It's 4th Grade for her monthly Currently event.
Come join, too!

Listening: to my son play basketball on the Playstation!  
     If he isn't outside playing basketball, he is inside playing it on the goal in his room, or playing it on the Playstation.  Basketball is his passion!  (He now tells me that is an Xbox, not Playstation!) 

Loving:  all the zucchini recipes I have been making this week.
      My husband's garden has done well this summer.  We have zucchini, cucumbers, and squash galore!  He is waiting on those tomatoes!   I found some of the best zucchini recipes on the planet.   On the left, Parmesan Zucchini & Corn Salad.  In the middle, Three Cheese Zucchini & Corn Crustless Pie.  And on the right, Three Cheese Zucchini roll ups & Parmesan Zucchini Rounds!  Two are healthy & two are not!  Can you guess which ones?

No, owls are not my favorite animal.
Thinking:  about changing my classroom theme.
     I have only had the owl theme for three years, but year 1 & 2, they took over!  If it has an owl on it, I probably have it!  I am thinking about keeping some owls in my room, but broadening it to include several other birds!  Welcome to the nest!   
I love everything about this!
Wanting:  to create a scrapbook space that is beautiful and functional.  
    When I look on Pinterest for scrapbook room ideas, I drool.  Currently, I have taken over part of my daughter's room.  She doesn't live here anymore, but it is still her room when she comes home.  I would love to paint, put up shelves, and decorate to make it my own.  I guess I will after a little more time of Kaitlyn being on her own.  For now, I will just keep pinning!  Just keep pinning!

Needing:  to get better.
     I began a diet in January and successfully got down to my realistic goal weight by my goal date! However, just a month into it, I began having stomach issues.  I have been to the doctor 3 times since late March and the issues continue.  Surgery was on the table for summer, but after my last visit my doctor decided to send me for further testing on Monday.  I just want to feel normal - recurring kidney stones, migraines, and allergies are enough already!

All Star:  I am pretty good at solving problems.  
     My husband says, "I have a solution for everything!"  I don't think he means that as a compliment, though!  No but really, if you have a problem and ask for my help, I will help you solve it.  I will find the solution or make the solution!

Have a wonderful day & go link up!


  1. Hi Tamera!
    I found you through Farley's Currently linky. Congrats to your parents on 45 years - that's amazing! Love the scrapbook area picture from Pinterest. Pinterest has many beautiful work spaces - would love to create something like that too! Hope you get to feeling better!

  2. We have a garden that is taking off as well! I will have to search out those zucchini recipes as we have a huge amount of zucchini growing quite well!

  3. I love the idea of creating a space dedicated to scrapbook/crafting. And the image you posted, LOVE IT! My office space is way to tiny for something like that thought. I need to build up. :)
