January Currently

I  love the beginning of the month. I NEVER manage to complete the new Currently on the first of the month, but this month I am actually a bit ahead of my usual. So here it is...

Listening - You will notice a theme as I go through these. It has been very cold here in Northern New Hampshire so far this winter. We have already had a couple of nights that hit -20 F. This week we have been stuck in single digits or negative numbers. Paying for heating oil is so expensive when we have weeks like this so not only am I hearing the furnace kick on constantly but each time it does I also hear the sound of money leaving my bank account.

Loving - The new fleece I got for Christmas is getting well used already. With it so cold I wore it under my jacket today and have kept it on in the house. (Dressing in layers means I can keep the thermostat a bit lower and still be comfortable).

Thinking - I am all about organization right now! I am trying to figure out how to better keep track of stats for TpT, including how much I blog or Pin products. I am also trying to figure out a way to track monthly goals (I think I may have found a calendar to help me with that). Now to just get me next semester classes organized and I will be all set!

Wanting - Well between the time that I typed and saved the Currently picture and now I have fulfilled that one! Hubby got home a bit later because he had to make an extra stop on the way home and then had to wait for the person he needed to see. But it was worth the wait as he decided that we should just go order some food since I hadn't really started cooking yet.

Needing - Summer, see all the previous complaints about cold weather.

Memory/Tradition - Each year we do a Christmas stocking for our dog. She knew her stocking was hanging up, I think she could smell the treats. So when we got our stockings down she was very eager to try to help unpack them. It was very cute! Her stocking was last and she was not very patient. Now she is sitting on the couch just staring at one of her new toys that was in her stocking like she is waiting for someone to come pick it up and play with her.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all have a warm and happy January!


  1. I so need to be better organized in ALL aspects of my world in 2014! Good luck to you! I am a huge fan of science and am currently in a STEM school. Can't wait to explore more of your blog!

  2. Hello April. I found you through the currently link-up. I actually live north of Boston where it's snowing too much right now. Plus, it's going to be bitterly cold tomorrow. Walking the dog will be a challenge in the morning. I can't wait to read more about how you teach science. Happy New Year!

  3. We are getting that cold weather today and tomorrow. It definitely gets a tad depressing at times! I try to dream about summer as much as possible too!
