What’s Up Wednesdays? #3

It’s Wednesday, so you know what time it is.  It’s time for me to share what’s been going on and not been going in my life so far. Let’s get into it.

What I’m eating this week:

Today for lunch I’m keeping it simple.  I plan on having a wrapped chicken roti filled with curry potato, steamed bodi, steamed pumpkin, curry chicken and curry mango. Yes, that is simple! 🙂 I love curry dishes. I enjoy buying roti from a little shop called Hot Sauce.  Their roti is usually soft and delicious.

What I’m reminiscing about: 

The days when my life was not as “complicated”.  Fewer obligations, less things to worry about.  I did not really appreciate how simple my life was back then.  I don’t regret where I am, I just never truly appreciated where I was. Do you ever reminisce about days like those?

What I’m loving:


My blog hit 100+ followers this week and Living vs Existing had 1000 likes to date.  I am very proud of this achievement.  It tells me not only that my work is appreciated but people want to stick around for more. Thank you.

 What I’ve been up to:

As I said last week, my son had some projects due this week for school so I’ve been busy helping him with that. We had to make a brochure, a booklet and do a presentation.  So used our creativity and were concise. I’m pleased to say that we’ve completed ahead of schedule. 🙂

What I’m dreading:

Not ironing anymore! I’m happy to report that I completed that task so I’m free. Yippee!!!!  Ok, well not totally free, I have to conduct some business  this week and I’m dreading the thought of having to go and stand in the long lines.  I will definitely need to turn to my phone to help pass the time. I hate long lines there are just so many other things we could be doing. 🙁

What I’m working on:

I’m hoping to get some filing done.  I want to get this post out early so I can get started on that.  Health and Wellness Friday preparation may not start before tomorrow.  I might be too tired when I’m done.

What I’m excited about:

Vacation!!!! The kids and I would be off together so it would definitely be a bitter-sweet.  I am looking forward to just relaxing. Kids on the other hand they seem allergic to sitting still. 🙂 I’m sure we will all find something we love to keep us happy.

What I’m watching/reading:

Honestly, I have not started the Harry Potter book yet but I’m planning to start it on my vacation which starts in August.   I realise now saying that out loud it probably seems very unlikely that I would start the book.  I would start it on July 1st. I’ve given myself an action date so now I must start the book. 😉  I did get Season 1 of Orphan Black and I plan on starting that tomorrow.  Will let you guys know how that goes.

 What I’m listening to:

Celine Dion  –  Because You Love Me and A New Day Has Come.  Celine Dion remains one of my favourite singers.  I like to go back now and then and listen to her music and others like Luther Vandross, Tina Turner, Lionel Richie, Madonna and more.  Who were or are some of your favourite singers?

What I’m wearing:

Unfortunately, the same old, boring stuff (pants and a blouse) and this is just post #3. I wear my clothes well don’t get me wrong but I get tired of them.  Don’t you?  So what I’m going to be doing going forward is saving you guys from that because I like you too much.  So from next week I’ll post pictures of what I wish I was wearing. If I had No, let’s use more positive thinking, when I have my walk-in closet these are some of the things it would have. Sounds like fun 🙂

What I’m doing this weekend:

Housework! Cleaning lots of it. That long line I was dreading now does not seem so bad after all. 🙂

What I’m looking forward to the next month:

The closure of school at the end of the month.  I’m looking forward to the break in driving to and from everyday, the ironing of school uniforms and all the  homework. When schools are closed here in Trinidad the traffic seems not as intense and I look forward to that.

What else is new?

I have some ideas for a new post I would like to introduce called “Come Travel With Me”.  I would tell you more but I don’t want to spoil the surprise so look out for that on Monday 26th.

That’s all for now guys.  Make today a great one!

Thanks for stopping by.
