November Currently

Really?  November already!  I really do like November, even though it seems so short.  I feel like after Halloween the craziness of back to school, apples, pumpkins, fire safety, fall, bats and spiders and ghosts... phew!... all settles down and I can finally enjoy what is left of the fall season.

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!

  1. I am also thankful to have an extra hour to get things done.
    Love your blog design.

  2. Your blog is adorable! You also sound like an extremely well-organized person. I confess we have sometimes left the Christmas tree and decorations up even longer. I love the holidays! I also love the changing colors of Fall. I grew up in California, but we live in Tennessee now. It's so beautiful here! Have an awesome month! Carol Carol"s Teaching Garden

  3. I need to put away my Halloween decorations too. But they're just so darn cute! :)
