Currently In My Corner

Today I'm trying something new and joining Megan Farley's Currently to answer a few reflection questions. It involved a tutorial {thank you, Kim & Amy} and lots of techno-courage ... drum roll please ... here it is ... ta da!

Basically, it's a monthly thing, that's been going on forever for a very long time. True confession: I've been a stalker, a lurker, a secret admirer of Farley's Currently since it started. So today, I'm linking up. The beautiful templates that Megan creates make the information pretty self-explanatory; here's how it works.

We fill in the blanks -- it was great fun it was to font-match!
Then we link up with other bloggers. 
To check in. To connect. 
It's a way to eggsplain what's going on in our corner of the world. 
Eggscellent idea, right?

Here goes. Currently, I'm listening to Jacob's games. It's kind of fun, in a gaming sort of way. There must be a little merit in this genre; the Houston Symphony performs a whole concert of Zelda music.

I'm loving my long weekend off. Got lots of weeds pulled yesterday and soaked in some vitamin D. That gave me lots of think time ... 
and I concluded that, right now, life is good. 
I want time to slow down, especially as the college years fly by.
I find this answer entertaining, in a play-on-words double-entendre way.

 As I work on giving and receiving grace, the more intentional I am, the more I appreciate how much I need it. Every day!
And my blog's name: I wrote a post explaining how it came about back in 2011 at Erin Klein's Kleinspiration blog {here}. 
So excited that I get to meet Erin in person when she comes to Friendswood in August. 
Basically, I wanted to see if surrounding myself by uplifting, inspirational stuff would help to uplift and inspire me. So I decided to choose stories and strategies that corner the market on character and give it a shot. I wrote every day for a year and, sure enough, I felt more inspired than ever. Yay!

So, like these bluebonnets and paintbrushes found growing wild alongside the highway, we must bloom where we're planted
and always be willing to change and grow.

Thank you, as always, for journeying through the new with me.
