Currently October

Another month, another CURRENTLY, hosted by Farley.

Listening- to The First 48. I really do love crime shows. I think if I hadn't become a teacher I would have wanted to do something with crime scene investigation. I loved the criminal justice class I took in college. So fascinating.

Loving- the weekend! This felt like a long week. So many things to get done, both in and out of school... I definitely need these two days to recharge.

Thinking- I'm starting up Reader's Workshop on Monday. We just finished reading the book Wonder, as well as the follow up extra The Julian Chapter... and we're ready to step into full on Reader's Workshop.

Wanting- it to feel like autumn! I love autumn, it's my favorite time of year. But we're having a heat wave, and it is not appreciated. 95 degrees today... boo! I'm ready for crisp breezes, cozy sweaters... 

Needing- a good night's sleep. I didn't sleep well last night and I'm fading fast tonight. Not a very fun Friday night, but it's needed.

Trick or Treat--- Treat! I've put up a sale at TPT store... my Chevron Bulletin Board Pack is 20% off this weekend. It's a hot item. Grab it at the discounted price!


  1. I love your blog - it is adorable! And I am right there with you on loving the crime shows. I had to stop watching Criminal Minds because it was giving me nightmares :) My new favorite show is Forensic Files. Also, please keep your 90 degree weather there - it has finally started to cool off by me!

    1. Thanks for visiting Katie! I love your blog too. I love country music, too, though I haven't listened to much of Old Crow Medicine Show. I'll have to check them out!

  2. Hi Mel! I absolutely love your blog design! It is super adorable and bright! I'm in Missouri and fall is definitely here. It was very cool and chilly today and for the most part will stay that way... Except for we have one day that will be 80 degrees next week. Meh. Anyway, I hope you get some fall-like weather soon! Also, I read Wonder over the summer and absolutely loved it! I didn't know there was a follow-up though. I'm going to have to find out about that one!
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks for visiting Alisha! I wish we had cooler weather here. It was 95 today. It's supposed to get a little cooler, but it definitely is not feeling like fall yet.

  3. I LOVE crime shows tooo!! :) Have you watched the new show, Stalker?!? It's so freaky!!

    1. Hi Haley! I haven't watched Stalker, though it seems like I might like it! I've seen the previews and it does seem pretty creepy!
