Currently November

Today I am linking up with Farley and taking part in my first Currently!

Listening- Downton Abbey Season 3
I LOVE Downton Abbey and I watch/listen to the episodes whenever I can. I can't get enough! I have started on Season 1 and watch through Season 4 a few times over during the past few weeks. The only drawback is that I talk with my terrible English accent for about an hour after my marathons each weekend… my poor husband!

Loving- The new Downton Abbey Season 5 Trailer!
January 4th cannot get here fast enough. I am loving the new trailer. What drama! I wonder what the fire is all about… if they kill off anymore of my favorite characters, I don't know what I will do! If you haven't seen the trailer yet, check it out here.

Thinking- about my parents' new puppy!
Today I went to visit my parents and meet their new puppy. She is the CUTEST! I forgot how completely adorable Cavaliers are as puppies. Although my pup Max is still pretty cute at 2 years old! Meet Lulu...
Wanting- New boots for fall
I am in desperate need… okay I want new boots for the fall. I found an adorable pair of chocolate riding boots… I think I must have them!

Needing- New computer speakers in my classroom
For the past few weeks my speakers have been acting wonky. When I have shared video clips in my classroom the sound won't work and I have to hold a cord in just the perfect placement for my students to be able to hear anything. FRUSTRATING! So, I found a different speaker set in my classroom cabinets, plugged it in to teach the 5 senses and… it didn't work… So I am now going to use funds provided by our generous PTA to get a working pair of speakers… I guess no video clips to supplement lessons until they arrive! 

Reading- The Boys in the Boat
I am a member of a book club and I LOVE to read. This month we are reading The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. At first I wasn't sure I would like this particular selection, but I have been pleasantly surprised. It is well written and I have really enjoyed some of the characters. The book is about the 1936 United States men's Olympic crew team. So far it has been a very interesting read. I hope the momentum continues!

Happy November!

  3. Lulu is soooo cute!!! I love her big ears and tiny nose! I also put that I need/want new boots for the cold season! I wear them so often that they get so beat up. I love your blog! I'll be sure to drop by and check it out now that I found you on Farley's link up.

  4. Me too! Speaker problems! They need to make speakers just for classrooms...small, easy to use(easy to find buttons), a cord that is just right...maybe in different colors too... :) And I love that super cute little Lulu! Have a great November!

  5. Hi Meghan,

    Your parents' puppy, Lulu, is adorable! I have a Cavalier/Cocker cross and his name is Max!! Funny coincidence:)
    I wish I belonged to a book club. I need to be pushed into reading new stuff.
