May Currently...

I almost missed the Currently for this month.

Boy, April went by FAST. I can't believe it's already May.   I am so looking forward to creating this summer. I have several projects lined up and I can't wait to get started.

I plan on spending some time this summer fixing up my house too.   I won't be leaving for a vacation, so I plan on investing some $$ and time on my house.

While I am writing this, I have Gordon Ramsey playing in the background.  I like this show, Kitchen Nightmares.  Not only does it give me the ooomph to clean my kitchen when I don't feel like it.. HAHA,  I also think he's a pretty good guy.  I know that he comes across a bit harsh, but he has a soft spot for families.

The weather has been exceptional the last few days.  It was 85 today. Though it's supposed to be 45 on Friday when the cold system comes down.  The goats are adjusting to the warmer temps.  I am so blessed this year to have so much grass in the pasture.  Last year, the drought was really bad and we had to hay feed most of the year.  The green grass is a welcome sight!

My head is spinning with ideas.  Do you ever have so many ideas for projects and packets that you have to stop and write it all down?  That's where I am at.  Most of my illustrations I need are already done.  (I draw all of my own artwork for my teaching resources!)   I am jazzed for the new school year, even before this one is over! :)

I think tomorrow, I am going to plant my 'mater seeds.  Nothing better than salads in the spring/summer with home grown 'maters. :)

Spring time means time to clear out closets and all the clutter that seems to grow.  My family missed out on the City Wide clear out, we didn't know of the date or we would have.  So it means I have to clear out closets a little different.  Where I live, the City designates a certain day each spring where folks can clear out their junk... closets, appliances, etc..   The City garbage collection will come around and pick everything up at no charge.  That's a pretty nice deal.  Unfortunately, we missed it.  Thankfully,  my pack rat days are over so I just have one closet that needs an extreme home makeover. :)

And that brings me to my summer bucket list.  My mobile home was originally set up for another family member and his significant other.  My Mom had lovingly decorated this place according to their color choices and really wasn't my taste.  I didn't want to hurt my Mom's feelings when I moved in, so I waited to say something about wanting to re-paint. lol   It was really funny, when I was brave enough to say something my Mom burst out laughing and asked me why I was afraid to say anything.  So she gave me the go-ahead to paint.  I am still working on what colors, but I do want to paint the dining room an egg shell cream color  and the living room wall... I'm on the fence on.  I want something somewhat neutral so I can change the living room decor out seasonally so it always looks good.


I want to move the furniture around a bit, and then the last thing on my bucket list is to redo the deck area.  I have a really nice covered deck.  I spend a lot of time on there watching the birds and wild life.  I'd like to change it up just a bit to be bright and cheerful and maybe plant some flowers.  The hummingbirds LOVE the flowers.

I hope that you are still following along. lol   I do love these Currently sheets, as I think it lets us all get to know each other a little better. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I would love to hear from you!


  1. Hello! I found you at Farley's Currently May link party. You and I have very similar plans for the summer- decorating the house! I had mine completely renovated during this school year. Now my summer is going to be spent unpacking and making it truly what we want it to be in terms of decorations. Thankfully I have a sister that's an interior designer. May we both have gorgeous homes by the first day of school!
