Liking... my new "Currently" picture. That's one of my mom's flowers, by the way. She has such a green thumb. I swear, I think she can grown almost anything.
Noticing... that the sounds of spring (lots of melodic bird chirping) has been replaced by the sounds of summer (noisy summer bugs).
Listening... to the audiobook Dancing With Myself by Billy Idol. He narrates it as well, so it's been a rather cool experience so far.
Reading... Wifey by Judy Blume. Yes, I'm actually reading it, like reading with my eyeballs reading! (Wifey wasn't available in audiobook format, so I had to go with a paperback. LOL!)
Watching... the nightly light show performed by lightning bugs in the backyard. Some nights, it looks like someone strung pulsating twinkle lights in the trees.
Celebrating... the fact I got tickets to see the broadway show Hamilton in Chicago! It took 2 1/2 hours to navigate and conquer the virtual feeding frenzy on Ticketmaster the day they went on sale, but I got them! This is how I felt afterwards:
Eating... lots of salads that I've been preparing in advance and storing in jars until I'm ready to eat them.
Hauling... off two months of cardboard and plastics, five months of aluminum, and years worth of stuff to Goodwill. Reduce, reuse, recycle.
Anticipating... the season finale of Outlander. I haven't read/listened to Dragonfly in Amber yet, so I went into this season as blind as a bat. I would like to listen to Dragonfly in Amber, but the audiobook is nearly 40 hours long! Call me a commitment phobe, but that's a HUGE time commitment!
(Still) Shopping... for one more "dressier" outfit for my trip to Vegas later this month. Given the heat my posse and I are going to endure during our visit, the coolest and most simple solution to this problem would be to don a dress. But, I look like a dork in a dress and I don't want to look like a dork in Vegas, so my search continues. #tomboyproblems
What have you been up to lately? As always, thanks for stopping by!

West Virginia, my beloved home state, was hit by devastating floods on June 23. An estimated 1,200 homes were damaged or destroyed. Many businesses, schools, and churches were also affected. As the waters receded and people returned to their homes, many found their homes and everything in them, completely washed away. To date, the waters took the lives of 23 people.
As you may be aware, country music star Brad Paisley, a fellow West Virginia native, established a GoFundMe account to collect donations for flood relief. The donations will be distributed through his charity, The Brad Paisley Foundation. For more information, you can read about it in this article on The Tennessean website, on Brad Paisley's Facebook page, and/or on the GoFundMe page he launched on Wednesday June 29, 2016.
