March Currently

It's a new month, and that means it's time for another Currently!

It seems that Mr. Groundhog was correct in his prediction that spring would be coming early.  At least to California!  While the Midwest and east coast have been hit with record-breaking snowstorms, we're basking in the 85F weather. Really.  Quite frankly, I'm disgusted. I want winter back!  Summer always comes before I'm ready.

We're reading "If You Give a Pig a Pancake" this week in our core reading materials. I think this may be my favorite week EVER!  We make pancakes in class, write our own circle stories, read lots of Laura Numeroff books... So fun!

My passport is off for renewal, I have read, reread, dogeared, and flagged my Rick Steves books on England and Scotland. Time to get this vacation booked!

Ah, my new car. So stinkin' excited!!!  Of course, once I could only find the car I wanted in the super tripped out, fancy bells-and-whistles, very expensive version, or the stripped-down, nothing in it at all version. Darn it!  Well, at least by ordering my car, I'll get exactly what I want.  Four more weeks to go! :)

I. Loathe. Spring. Passionately.  For one with crazy-ridiculous allergies, spring is the most dreaded time of the year. Antihistamines don't do squat for me this time of year. It's time to bring out the big guns... Which can only be attained by my allergist.  I just LOVE feeling like I have the flu for months on end.

3 words that start with K? REALLY?!  This was a hard one. And I wasn't prepared to think too hard today. It is Sunday, after all.

So, kale.  I am in a bit of  love affair with kale at the moment. Kale and potatoes. Kale, zucchini, tomato, and white bean ragout, kale in my salad. Who knew kale was so yummy?!

My kitchen, though nothing to brag about, was a round-about way of saying how much I love to cook and bake.  There is something so rewarding about putting something on the table made from scratch.  And so much yummier, too!

Kaput.  Yeah, my printer at work did that this week.  Went kaput.  And I wasn't planning on buying a new printer for my classroom this year. Ah, technology. Can't live with it, but can't live without it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
