November Currently

I am linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the November Currently.

Listening:  Criminal Minds reruns are my background noise when I need to work on something, but don't want it completely quiet.  I guess because it seems like one channel or another is always playing old episodes!

Loving:  I LOVE coffee!  I also really love a cinnamon dolce latte from Starbucks.  I recently bought the Walmart brand of cinnamon vanilla creamer and was so excited to discover that it makes my coffee taste pretty darn close to my beloved CDLatte!

Thinking:  So we have a lot of freedom at my new school...just make sure the standards/scope and sequence are covered.  But this week...MY GOODNESS!  It just seems like there is an unusually large amount of different skills to cover--particularly in grammar and vocabulary; several different prefixes and suffixes, singular and plural nouns, irregular plural nouns, abbreviations, and something that I know I am forgetting right now!  I literally taught right up to the dismissal today and had the kids packing as we were going out the door.  Can anyone relate??

Wanting:  Cool weather is here which means that I am ready for my fall wardrobe staples of boots and tights.  However, why can I not find any cute, patterned, brown tights???  I ran by the store today (to buy printer ink) and checked again....every color, size, and style of black or grey.  One pack of plain brown!  This is not what I need!  Where do you find cute, reasonably priced tights?

Needing:  My huge-mongeous pile of laundry is mocking my from it's overflowing basket...and yet here I sit - still ignoring it.  Tomorrow is another day, right?

Reading:  I love, love, LOVE the Anne of Green Gables series and started re-reading them about a month ago.  I am now on Anne's House of Dreams which is one of my favorites....Anne and Gilbert finally their little house by the sea...Captain Jim...Miss Cornelia Bryant, I just love this one in the series!

Ok...maybe I should tackle that laundry now.......or maybe not!


  1. Yes, I too look forward to fall weather. For me it's boots and leggins... I find them more comfortable than tights. Kohl's and Target are my leggins and tight places. I have a friend who LOVES Anne of Green Gables, too. I only know it from the TV series. Nice meeting you. See you around! Kathleen

  2. Like you, I also need some background noise when I need to work on something! The life of a teacher ;)

    Good luck on the search for the brown tights, gotta love fall!


  3. Oh wow...thanks for mentioning laundry. I actually need to be doing that, too! UGH! Cute blog! Kohl's has some cute tights...especially in the Lauren Conrad section. :) I love her stuff!

  4. Patterned tights, now that sounds like fun! I'm a leggings girl but haven't ventured out into patterns yet. Maybe this year though!
