February Currently


It is that time again! I'm joining the fun with Farley.

Let’s see…my husband and children are asleep, so the house is quiet. The last week or so, one (or both) kids has woken up before I even made it to bed. I am working away, but LISTENING to every little noise. I’m hoping this phase passes soon!

I am LOVING the weather. Living in South Florida is rough in the fall. October comes and we are still WAY too hot, while the rest of the country is enjoying cooler weather with their pumpkins and apples. February makes it all worth it though! The windows were open and we hung the clothes out on the line this afternoon. We took the kids to the strawberry patch this morning for some yummy goodness. Love it!

I’ve stayed up late working on some projects for my TpT store this week. I’m still a newbie and trying to get things going. Now that my student teacher is starting to take over I am giving myself a project a week to prepare for the class that I can then post.

I got this one posted tonight in time for the big sale:


I am happy with all that I’ve gotten done this week, but I am THINKING that it will catch up to me soon if I don’t get some sleep!

I am WANTING my house to clean itself. I’d settle for having someone clean it for me. Sadly I don’t see either of those things happening any time soon!

I am excited about picking up some goodies during tomorrow’s sale, but I am NEEDING not to go overboard!

PET PEEVES- The first has to do with the Irishman. I love my husband dearly. He is a wonderful man who works hard. He wears a tie to work, and he works 5 days a week. I cannot figure out how it is possible that we will have 10 or so ties scattered around the house at any moment. I find ties on the kitchen counter, on the couch, in the bathroom, EVERYWHERE! We have tried several systems for organizing the ties, but it hasn’t made a difference.

My second PET PEEVE is missing manners.  It is so simple. I can’t stand listening to people old enough to know better with missing manners. My youngest is 18 months old and already says please and thank you. In class I really strive for “Yes, please” or “No, thank you” from my students when answering appropriate yes/no questions. It is the little things that can make a big difference.

Now I’m off to bed. Good night!


  1. I am here from Farley's rule of 3! Your blog is really cute - I need to come back and read more when I can stay awake! I know what you mean about the late nights catching up with you.. I can't help it though, I am a night owl at heart.
    I too am needing to not spend too much at the sale but it is going to be hard. I have a huge wish list and every-time I see a product highlighted on another blog I want it! LOL
    Good luck with your student teacher!

  3. I just found you through Farley's Currently. Really cute blog and blog name:) I live in TX and wish I lived in Florida! We visited last summer and we would love to live in FL!

    I'm new to TpT too. I began selling items right around Xmas, prior to that everything in my store was free. I'm excited to see if I can meet my goal. Enjoy shopping:)


  4. At our house it is socks. I find socks everywhere and they are not usually clean! Ugh! I found your blog through the currently and I am extremely jealous of your weather. I am in Indiana and it is currently (tee-hee) 13 degrees. I am staying in the house today!
