Currently.... and coming up....

I thought I would link up tonight with Farley for the June "Currently."  (Wow - have you seen how big that linky is???  Over 250 bloggers!  I don't think I even know that many people!)  It's June already?!  Aack!  Where did the time go?  Here's life with me right now... and you may want to pay closer attention than usual... I snuck in a few clues about what's coming up later this week....
I am only going to go into detail on two of these things.  Don't want to bore anyone.   
Love to hear those birds!  My backyard is wooded and all the storms we've had here over the past year have taken down some big trees.  I live in a condo, so all the maintenance and lawn people cared about was hauling off the branches and stuff on THEIR property.... which left the view from my deck quite a mess - big fallen limbs, dead tree branches... all in the woods so no one wanted to deal with it...
Drove me crazy.  Then, inspiration struck!  (Ok, struck someone else, but that person does not read my blog so we'll just say it was my idea.  Ssshh.. our secret...)  Introducing the bird condo development:
Trust me - it looks better from my deck.  Those are 4 birdhouses out there.  All cute and new.  Hopefully some little mama birdie will make a home in one soon.  A friend of mine suggested I put one up for every 20 followers I have on my TpT store... cute idea.... there are 4 now.... might be a fifth very soon!  (Hint! Hint!)
Story #2 focuses on my weekend.  Yes, filled with wonderful pre-summer fun... but also filled with this guy:
Yes, that's a snapping turtle.  On the LAWN.  Not my lawn... a friend's lawn... which used to be a pond at this time last year.   But now it has been filled in.  Only apparently no one sent the memo to Mr. Snapper.  He came by looking for the water and let me tell you, he was NOT happy to see it was gone.  And considering it felt like about 100 degrees on Saturday (oh look - another hint!), I'm sure he was quite disappointed to find he was out of luck.

Here he is safely ensconced in a garbage can for transport to the nearest water....
Just in case you decide to ever re-locate a snapping turtle... you should know that they are not very agreeable creatures.... but, all is well - Mr. Snapper happily swam away in his new home and I still have all my fingers and toes. 
Well, that just about covers my weekend.  I hope you paid attention to the very clever clues I placed in my conversation....I'll be back soon with some exciting news!  If anyone cares to guess what my news might be, feel free to leave a comment. 
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Poor turtle! I'm glad you were able to rescue him! I can tell you love nature! I too, just love listening to the birds. I have two feeders in my backyard including a hummingbird feeder. BTW, love your blog design....I have the same one! heehee!

  3. I'm glad you were able to help the turtle. You're braver that me! I don't think I'd have all my fingers if I did that. Good luck getting through the next three weeks. I've only got one left and it feels like an eternity. Three would be torture! I think you need to stop by DD on the way to school tomorrow!

  4. Awwww that's so cool about the turtle! I just found your blog through the linky and am your latest follower :)

  5. What a cute blog, love the birdhouse idea for every 20 followers on TPT. You may have lots of birdhouses someday too the way it sounds. I always look for other 2nd grade blogs to follow. Looks like you do some neat stuff in your classroom. Glad I found you and I am a new follower of your blog. Will have to check out your TPT store too.
