November Currently

My favorite blog post all month long is Farley's Currently series.  It's the one post I know that I can tackle with consistency and I like the quick reflection format.

Listening It's my Sunday morning tradition so to speak, it was born out of necessity of time to grade the mounds of paper that I'm unable to get through during the week.  This week, the movie is Sixteen Candles.  Most mornings on the weekend it is my tv from the previous week or another 80s movie.  But, don't you just love you some Jake?   

Loving Fall is here friends!  I'm crossing my fingers that we don't see temps in the 90s anymore.  We had snow this week!  What?!!! I love the fall - cool evenings, jeans, warm socks, and flannel shirts.

Thinking I was out 3 days this past week and now I have a bag full of work to complete.  It's terrible to procrastinate, but I find myself wanting to do so.  If I could teach without grading, I'd really be a happy girl.  

Wanting Sweaters and boots are my favorite.  I love that I live in a state that actually has cooler temps so I can wear them.  My outfit of choice is a pair of great jeans, a flannel shirt, and a good pair of boots.  I have "athletic" calves, so my boots are usually short.  Wish I could find some tall ones that fit. 

Needing A magic trick to curb the talking in my classroom.  I feel like I'm on my children all the time for talking and I don't like the way that makes me feel.  But, I need a trick that will help it stop.  So, if you have one, let me know!

Reading Unbroken by Laura Hildebrand.  One of my favorite authors and one of my favorite subjects.  I love WWII era history, fashion, television, etc.  So, this book is right up my alley.  I started reading it last year and never finished it for some reason, but I bought it this week and I'm enjoying it immensely.  Add in the trailer of the movie that is due out soon and it's the perfect combination.  

Head over to Farley's to see what everyone else is currently up to this month!


  1. Hi. I found you through Farley's linky party. I LOVE fall too. My favorite weather! I don't like that winter follows but I enjoy fall while it is here! I also put that I am needing boots. I have a brown pair I love but need black! Enjoyed reading your post!

  2. Hi, Shasta! Thanks for stopping by!
    I can totally agree with you. I would also love to teach without all the grading and paperwork. What a joy that would be! I also tend to put on 'old' movies while I do Sunday prep.

  3. Hello! We have a few things in common! I too, have a super talkative class this year. I have 28 first graders and that is a lot of mouths! The second thing we have in common is I have such a hard time finding boots to fit over my calves. The problem is that I'm short so it looks ridiculous sometimes. I have found that a mid-calf boot with a wide shaft works the best for me! Finally, I hate grading papers!!

  4. I have traded in my sweaters for one size too big button up shirts (long enough to cover my bottom!), leggings and pair of boots! I got my boots from Kohls and they have a second zipper that expands the area around your calves. They are great!

    Found your blog through Currently! Would love for you to head over and check out my blog…
