Currently December

Man, December already!  I guess I'm getting a head start on my new year resolution to blog more.  Today I'm linking up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade with a "Currently" post.  This is my first!

Listening - Thanks to my teaching partner for the heads up about Coffee shop soundtrack on Pandora!  Listening to this makes everything better, including cleaning house!  Love it!

Loving - Moving into a new home has inspired me to get rid of my tired, old tree decorations (actually my tired, old TREE as well).  I spent some time on Saturday shopping for a new tree and all the decorations.  I love a fancy, "themey" tree, but my family is all about traditional green and red.  I compromised by buying a skinny, 5 foot tree for my family room and filling it with fancy, shiny teal/turquoise/silver ornaments.  The "real" tree is a little more traditional with gold and red decorations.  I haven't added my ornaments yet, but I love it so far.

Thinking - Whew!  It seems like when you travel on holiday breaks, you really don't feel like you had any time off! 

Wanting-A little warmer weather, please!  Saturday it was 70+ degrees, today....30's!  For the love!

Needing-  Winter is a great motivator to go to hot yoga.  I can hardly wait to get in that 95 degree room. 

Giving- One of my favorite parts of my Thanksgiving break was crafting.  I'm not much of a crafter usually, but my step mom is crafter extraordinaire!  She taught me how to do a mixed media project on canvas.  I created this for my mother in law.  This would have been their 60th anniversary, but her husband passed away five years ago.  I found their wedding picture and a form listing their children.  I made photocopies of these and then used ink to age them up a bit.  I was really happy with the final product.   My mind is now going crazy with ideas!  So much fun!
