the sunday currently, volume 47.

Good Sunday morning to you, friends! I hope  you all have been having a good weekend. Yesterday was a day of knitting, working out, & getting caught up on my YouTube subscriptions. Justin went & golfed, so after being out in the heat & humidity for a few hours, he was exhausted last night. 

Today we are wrapping up preparing the house for our visitor tomorrow! I'm so excited to have Justin's mom come visit. It'll be fun showing her around our town, as well as taking her to eat at our favorite places & to browse around our favorite antique shops.

C  U  R  R  E  N  T  L  Y  .  .  .  

R E A D I N G nothing at the moment. I decided to put Rise & Shine on hold for a while & take a little break.
W R I T I N G blog posts every day in August, for Blaugust. It's making me happy. I may do Septemblog, too.
L I S T E N I N G to the hum of the computer & my fingers tapping the keys of the keyboard. It's a quiet morning around here, folks.
T H I N K I N G that it's time to get up & clean! My mother-in-law is arriving for a visit tomorrow. I'm so excited - I LOVE when people come to visit us. 
S M E L L I N G the fresh mug of hot chocolate I'm enjoying in an effort to wake up.
W I S H I N G I rose every day with the sun like Jen.
H O P I N G to get a lot accomplished today. 
W E A R I N G nothing special... just pajamas.
L O V I  N G everything on Organized Jen's channels lately. They've been ultimately inspiring to me. Also, the crafting project I'm working on, as well as the ones I have planned.
W A N T I N G sushi & a caramel macchiato.
N E E D I N G medicine for my sinuses. And to get caught up on all my correspondence.
F E E L I N G tired. I don't know what it is, but this break from school has somehow exhausted me.
C L I C K I N G Rachel's blog a lot lately. I want everything in her Etsy shop.

Alrighty, the time has come to do the dishes. Happy Sunday, everyone!

Hot Chocolate sounds like Fall/winter....which I am sort of excited for, because it's my favorite time of year (fall)....but not ready for the super cold temperatures. Love fall/winter clothes...just not the bitter bitter cold.

I love knitting. I love what you made. So beautiful, and love the color.

It can be so fun to have visitors. Sprucing up the house can be stressful, but then when you're able to present a spiffed-up version of how you live... well, that's always nice. :) Enjoy your time with Justin's mom!

I like having visitors in part just because I know it's when my house gets its best clean! I hope it's a great visit! And you've reminded me that I've got a knitting project I need to start... bring on the cooler weather!

exactly! our house is never as clean as when we have people come visit. i've vowed that this time i'll keep it up, but i guess only time will tell. break out those knitting needles! it feels so great to make something.
siddathornton said…
thank you! we are SO looking forward to having her visit. and the clean house is definitely an added bonus!

thank you! i love knitting too. my friend taught me about three years ago, & this year i plan to make a whole bunch of things. navy is one of my favorite colors, so i'm tempted to keep this piece for myself. it's a gift, though!

fall is my favorite time of year, too! i can't wait for it. i don't even mind the cold temperatures - it's been oppressively hot & humid this year, which i don't like. the hot chocolate has definitely been putting me in the fall mood, but i know pumpkin spice coffee will definitely make it feel like it's time for the colder months!

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
