Sunday Currently Vol. 3

I have two consecutive “Sunday Currently” blog posts. It only meant I have not been writing for a week. Where did the week go?  It is a good thing because it means I was busy. However, it is also a bad thing because I have not been consistent with my goal of writing more.   So here goes my week.

Currently missing

February is my parents’ birth month.  My mother’s birthday is a day after my father’s. Both parents are now in God’s embrace.

Currently working

I have been pitching in with cooking.  My aunt often does most of the cooking but I wanted to experiment on some recipes. The first one in the photo is a macaroni dish I made after I had leftover macaroni from cooking chicken macaroni soup.  On the right is a mango float but I used mango gelatin instead of mango because mangoes are expensive these days.

Currently learning

I have been updating my photo editing skills with creating snow and sparkles on an image using my friend’s photos in my file.  I am planning to do more because it is a lot of fun trying to create some scenes.

Currently planning 

I am planning on stuff I want to post on Instagram. I am currently enjoying this platform. I have been reading how to improve my feeds and I am quite amazed with the results.

Currently looking forward 

There are things I need to do and complete this week. I am positive that I can accomplish a lot this week. Let’s pray for that to happen!

How was your week?

The Sunday Currently Vol. 2

A week has passed and a lot has happened. I have yet to note them down on my journal. This is the second week of The Sunday Currently series.  ( In case you have not read the first one, you can check it out here.)

Currently organizing

I want to update this small website of mine to something that looks polished and current. I have been reading tips from other bloggers on how to do it right.  I am still in the planning stage and I am having information overload. I have to take down notes and update whatever it is that needs my immediate attention.

Currently anxious

The southern part of the Philippines has been experiencing inclement weather.  We live near the river and the water level has overflowed last week that we have elevated our things in the house in order to prepare for flooding. Thank God  we were spared. Homes from other parts of the city were not as fortunate as us. However, with the unpredictable weather, we kept our things elevated until forecast says that sunny days are coming.  Currently, the house is still in disarray.

Currently practicing

I am glad I had the time to do some art practice. I am on the process of getting my art out there. I want to be able to put out artworks that I can be proud of so I keep on practicing.

Currently watching

I am a TV series kind of person. I prefer watching TV series than movies.  I am catching up on Modern Family Season 8 episodes. I am also watching the current season of The Big Bang Theory, Scandal and Homeland.

Currently thankful

I am thankful for freebies. I got some digital freebies from Free Pretty Things For You! And indeed, they are pretty. I was able to create the graphics below.  One day, I will give back by offering some freebies myself based on my watercolor artwork. Check out the link in case you are interested.

That is all for this week. Tell me something new in your life this week.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 1

My friend, Grace, started this type of blog post that updates her readers about the things that are currently happening in her life. She gets her blog prompts from here. I am following her lead. This would help me keep up with one of  my plans for the year: write frequently.

Here’s my version:

Currently considering

My friend will be taking up an online entrepreneurship course and I was thinking of taking the course with her.  I am hesitant because the deadline for enrollment is next week  and I have not really thought this through yet. I might not be able to keep up with the schedule. I am also thinking of taking a free online course through edX.

Currently trying

I have gained inches and kilos the past year. I am trying to follow a workout schedule which I have been skipping since the start of the year. I have already plotted the schedule on my journal. I am done with day 1.  I have 38 days more to go before I change the schedule.

Currently collecting

Last week, I learned about this awesome site, Unsplash. It is a website where you can download beautiful stock photos for free. I got my title image for this post from there. I have downloaded 42 favorite images and I plan to update my files often.

Currently reading

I have 16 books to read for the year and I am still on my first book. I am reading Mia Alvar’s In the Country Stories. It is a book with different Filipino stories of struggles and realizations. It is a book which I wish I wrote.  I often find myself thinking, ” Why can’t I write like this?”

Currently happy

Roger Federer won his 18th Grand Slam title by winning the Australian Open finals against Rafael Nadal just a few minutes ago.  I am a Federer fan although I stopped watching tennis after my father died. No one will explain the game for me anymore.  Around this time of the year, I used to talk about tennis based on these reminders from Facebook.

I’ll just end the post here.
