Time to link up with Farley for this month's Currently!
Here we go!
Oh the wind! We are on the edge of two coastal storms/fronts this weekend. Yesterday it rained, today we get wind. And if I can hear it blowing across my backyard, which is pretty sheltered then I KNOW that wind is strong! It's been a perfect weekend to stay inside in my comfy clothes, catch up on house stuff and catch my breath.
Turn the clocks back? An extra hour of sleep. Enough said - thank you!
I am just in LOVE with this month's Currently design. Fall really is a favorite season of mine - I love the colors, the smells, the crisp air... I am lucky to live where we see a true fall season, complete with beautiful changing leaves, pinecones, acorns and more. I really hate to see it go because that means winter is just around the corner!
So. Much. Stuff. I have Halloween stuff decorating my house, stuff I brought home from my classroom... it's everywhere. am one of those people who does not like to leave holiday decorations up past their prime (except maybe the Christmas tree,, which I did keep one year until the beginning of February - and yes, it was a real tree :-) Time to put away all things spooky and pull out those Thanksgiving turkeys!
Read a book - what's that? I read like a mad woman during summer and on school breaks, but at the beginning of the year I probably don't pick up a book until now. I do read blogs, teaching articles, magazines... things that I can finish before falling asleep at 9:30. I'm curious to see what others are reading though. I love a good book! And that makes me think - I love my Kindle. I swore I would never stray from the feel of a real book in my hands but my Kindle is fantastic. EXCEPT for professional reading - then I want the actual book. Not sure why... I don't mark up my books (that would drive me crazy!), but I do like to be able to go back to them for ideas, which is much easier with a real book than with a Kindle... hmmm... your thoughts?
Don't forget to stop by Farley's blog and see what everyone else is up to!
