It's November 1st and you know what the start of a new month means! It's my favorite monthly link-up, Currently with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade. Here's what I'm "Currently" up to:
Listening: I'm a little late to the Big Bang Theory party, but now that I've caught on, it's my favorite background show! During the day, I love to work in peace and quiet (hahahaha…I'm a fifth grade teacher, that was a joke). At night, I always need a little background noise, unless I'm concentrating extra hard. Then I really do need total peace and quiet.
Loving: I know it's been fall for awhile, but I grew up in upstate New York so fall in Virginia doesn't exactly feel like the fall I grew up with. I like to wear sweaters and jeans and scarves in October. I've trick or treated in snowstorms and bitter cold. I love a cold, brisk fall morning. Up until the last few days, it's been 70 degrees every day. That's totally not fall to me. I need a bit of brrr! Needless to say, I'm totally happy with the fact that the low for tomorrow is in the 40s. For a few days, fall will actually feel like fall to me!
Thinking: Sundays are so not fun for me. I long to think "I don't have anything to do today" on a Sunday. They are forever my lesson planning and grading days. This weekend, I'm even adding report cards to my long list of Sunday to-do's. I don't watch football, but I'm highly jealous of all of my friends who get to hang out and enjoy Sunday football. Sundays = not fun days for me!
Wanting: A long weekend. Just one extra day or three. I know exactly how many days are between me and my Thanksgiving break. It's 25 1/2, in case you are wondering!
Needing: As the cooler weather rolls in, I am in great need of cold weather clothes. My sweaters are outdated and I can't seem to find any that are calling my name. In addition, both my brown and black dress boots bit the dust last winter, so now I need to replace them. I'm at least fashionable enough to know that my bare traps and riding boots don't exactly dress an outfit up.
Reading: Excuse me while I blow the dust off so that I can see the title. I am technically reading When We Fall by Emily Liebert, but I haven't read a page since August, so I'm not sure that I'm really reading anything. This all goes back to my wanting a long weekend.
