November Currently

Oh, November, let me list how I love thee...
  • Fall is here! Leaves, cooler weather (hopefully), and crisp mornings.
  • Pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, pumpkin cookies...
  • Veteran's Day holiday
  • Thanksgiving
  • Thanksgiving break (we get the WHOLE week off!)
  • Sister's birthday
  • My birthday (Turning 30! When did that happen?!)
  • Going to Boston with my mom to celebrate my birthday
And lastly, because it's time for another Currently!

My roommate has been singing the new James Bond theme song's praises for a few weeks ago, and I finally heard it on the radio. Needless to say, I came home and downloaded it on my iTunes.  So good!!

I think every teacher out there will rejoice with me that our first holiday since Labor Day is almost here! Praise the Lord for a day of rest.

Yeah, Christmas shopping. As much as I shudder even thinking about Christmas until AFTER Thanksgiving, I do like to get my shopping done early.  And online. Oh, how I love shopping online and avoiding the store madness!

Fall weather.  Oh how I want it to stick around! It has been gloriously cool in the morning and crisp in the afternoons. Until today. Now it's supposed to be 90F for the next three days. Really?! REALLY?!  I'm going on strike.  I bought a cute new coat, gosh darn it, and I want to wear it!

Canters.  Blessed Canters.  I need to go. Now.  Matzo Ball soup. Bagels.  Latkes. Corned Beef Sandwiches.  This is definitely a need, not a want!

Playing soundtracks in my classroom is one of my favorite things to do.  My kids LOVE How to Train Your Dragon, and so do I.  It is a fantastic soundtrack. Go get it. Now. I also love pure classical music. It's so calming.  Great for those writing benchmarks or concentrating times. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
