Currently in November

Thank goodness for my FAB friend Farley and her just a fabulous Currently linky.   I have not been blogging like I should and I don't ever like to miss her linky parties so here I am!

I actually have a lot to blog about and I am hoping to do so regularly now that the first grading period of school is done.   It is one of my goals to be more organized with my time.... I am a horrible time manager but I just can't be any more.

Anywho, join me and a million (not much of an exaggeration) other bloggers at the Currently linky party by clicking on the button below.

Listening - I'm watching Cupcake Wars while munching on Milky Way and drinking a Diet Coke from Sonic....best ice in the country :)   I am really shouldn't watch this show because I now I want cupcakes!!!!  Warm, moist, sweet goodness!  

Loving - It's November!!!!  That means that my favorite season, fall, is here.  Well, living in South Texas the fall weather doesn't really come until December or so but today the weather was pretty good!  It was nice and cool.  We got a cool front in and it was 68 today.  I prefer low 60 or high 50s but 68 is way than being in the 90s!  In November is my son's birthday, our anniversary (24 years this year), and Thanksgiving... the holiday of gravy giving THANKS (but I do love my mom's turkey gravy!!!!)

Thinking - I definitely need to organize my schedule a bit more.  I waste so much time, yet I don't have enough time in my day!  Story of my life!

Wanting - see listening (and bring me a cupcake)

Needing - to start exercising because of the Milky Ways I am munching on and the darn cupcakes that I am craving. If you look back through many of my Currentlys you will see that I have needed to start exercising almost every month for the last couple of years!   Well, if I scheduled some time in my unorganized schedule, I would actually walk now the weather is getting cooler.  

Reading - Acts of Teaching - How to Teach Writing  It is like the Literacy Bible!!!!  It's amazing!  A bit pricey but worth every single penny!!!!!!!!!!!!  You need to check it out
Happy Fall Y'all


  1. Thanks, now I want a cupcake and also needed to walk soon. Love your blog and of course, I wanted to try back to exercising soon.

  2. This post made me laugh! I love Cupcake Wars, too! And...it makes me want delicious cupcakes, too...unlike the ones sitting on my counter downstairs from our Fall Festival we had on Thursday. Ha. Thanks for sharing a little piece of yourself. You've commented on my blog and I've not known a whole lot about you. I really enjoyed reading this post. I feel like I got to know you a little better. ;)

    1. I have a lot too share Kayla.... especially if I keep eating these darn Milky Ways!

  3. That book sounds incredible! I am a teaching book junky- I totally have to check it out. Is it applicable to the upper grades, too? I'm a new follower, I found you through Farley's link up.

    1. Hmm, well I just realized you are FOURTH not FIRST as I originally misread your title... so I'm guessing its applicable to fifth grade as well! LOL


    2. Hi Mandy! Yes, this book is PERFECT for all grades!

  4. Cupcake Wars is one of those shows that I would never sit and watch at home but love to watch at the gym because I HAVE to know how it ends. Therefore, it motivates me to stay on the treadmill longer - ha!

    Sonic ice sounds amazing right now. I wish I had a Sonic near me! Have a great November.

  5. I'm very curious about that book. I'm heading over to check it out. I use Four Square quite a bit with my kids, and lots of shared writing and mentor text lessons to model.

    My daughter has been obsessed with Cupcake Wars, and when you're dieting, it is torture to have it on. I hope you got one. :-)

    Have a great week.

  6. Great, now I want cupcakes too! I have the diet coke already (that's a constant, no matter what! I may even drink it in my sleep haha). I'm curious about that book too but I would have no time to read it until winter break with all of my grad books. :)

  7. Lorraine, you crack me up! You sound like a teacher I'd like to teach with! Keep it fun!
