Currently July

It's that time again to take part in Farley's Currently.


No, I wasn't really watching the commercial for the NuWave Precision Cooktop, it was only on for background noise. I have really been enjoying the freedom to sleep in. Now that my daughter is 13, she finally lets me sleep in. My daughter has always been an early bird. For the longest time, I could never sleep in past 6:30 a.m. so sleeping until 7:30 or 8:30 a.m. is really a treat!

Looking back from the beginning of June, I really haven't accomplished much. I guess you can say I'm really in that "summer" mode. Might as well enjoy it since it will be over in 30 days!


I live in Arizona and it is blazing hot outside! I can deal with 100 degrees but anything above 105 degrees is too much for me! I don't go outside during the day unless I need to! 

For tips, tricks, or hints I have to say my advice is to read as many blogs as you can. I've learned so many "teaching" tips just from reading blogs from all you awesome teachers. Since summer, I've been starting to read blogs that are not teaching related and it's been just as enlightening! 

I can't believe another month has gone by! Enjoy your summer and stay cool!

Making a burrito book

My daughter had a very clever teacher two years ago
and one of the things she used often in her class 
were "burrito books".

Here's how to make a burrito book...

June Currently

I just love Farley's currently. However, lately I noticed I don't seem to post too much in between each month!


I won't go over explaining listening, loving, thinking,wanting and needing since they are self explanatory. My three vacation essentials are: antibacterial gel/wipes, IPhone and bottled water. 

I'm not sure if it's been discussed before but I'm kind of a Germophobe! Please tell me I'm not the only one... but when I check into a hotel I wipe down everything with antibacterial wipes/clorox wipes. The remote controls, light switches, counters, bath and toilet area.

IPhone mainly for taking pictures since I no longer carry a separate camera. I still have the tendency to want to bring a camera but I just can't bring everything with me. 

I try and bring as much bottled water as I can if it's a vacation that I'm using my own car. I find the only time I drink a lot of soda is when I'm on vacation so I'm better off bringing bottled water with me. 

Wishing everyone a wonderful and relaxing summer break!
