Currently for February and a Book Recommendation

Wow!  
Can you believe it is FEBRUARY already!!!
That means it's time to link up with Farley from
For this month's Currently.


My daughter is a huge fan ADDICT of the TV show Castle.
She got all 6 of the previous seasons for Christmas.
Ever since Christmas day, she has spent
EVERY.FREE.MOMENT.
watching all the episodes.
It has become the background sound of my life lately.
She is finally on the last season and I cannot wait
until I do not have to listen to it 
ALL.THE.TIME!

I am definitely a


I love the rainy weather that we have had this week.
I will never complain about rainy days,
even when it means rainy day schedule.


My BABY girl is growing up way too fast!
Can't believe she'll be 16 this week!
I have learned so much since I started out on TPT!
Here's one of my first product covers compared to my most recent.
  

Some of my older stuff doesn't even have a cover!
Gotta get to work on that!

I've been slacking lately and my pile are growing.
I HAVE TO GET ORGANIZED AGAIN.

If I were a pageant queen,
which I definitely am NOT!
I would earn the title
"The Queen of Crap"

I have a lot of stuff!
I'm not a hoarder, 
but I do seem to buy a LOT of school related stuff!
If you need it,
I probably have it.
Heck, I probably have 2 or 3!
If you've ever seen my classroom or my office,
you know it's true!

That's my Currently for February.

Chosen Amazon's Best Book of the Month - January 2015

Intersecting, overlapping, not-quite-what-they-seem lives. Jealousies and betrayals and wounded hearts. A haunting unease that clutches and won’t let go. All this and more helps propel Paula Hawkins’s addictive debut into a new stratum of the psychological thriller genre. At times, I couldn’t help but think: Hitchcockian. From the opening line, the reader knows what they’re in for: “She’s buried beneath a silver birch tree, down towards the old train tracks…” But Hawkins teases out the mystery with a veteran’s finesse. The “girl on the train” is Rachel, who commutes into London and back each day, rolling past the backyard of a happy-looking couple she names Jess and Jason. Then one day Rachel sees “Jess” kissing another man. The day after that, Jess goes missing. The story is told from three character’s not-to-be-trusted perspectives: Rachel, who mourns the loss of her former life with the help of canned gin and tonics; Megan (aka Jess); and Anna, Rachel’s ex-husband’s wife, who happens to be Jess/Megan’s neighbor. Rachel’s voyeuristic yearning for the seemingly idyllic life of Jess and Jason lures her closer and closer to the investigation into Jess/Megan’s disappearance, and closer to a deeper understanding of who she really is. And who she isn’t. This is a book to be devoured. -Neal Thompson

It was so good!  Definitely hard to put down because it was so twisty.
I give it a big 'ole


What have you been reading?
I would love to have you link up.

  1. Ha! I love your pageant name! Your honesty is refreshing! And good job growing as a TPTer. I am definitely still at the beginning stages and love seeing how far other teachers have come!

  2. I know how you feel about having a teenager! Mine is about to turn 15! She is obsessed with all things K-Pop and there seems to be no end in sight. I just finished reading Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. Another page turner. I think I will go out and get the one you recommended. I am always looking for something new. Have fun updating your covers. That was a summer project for me and still I think I would like to change them up even more. Your newest covers are AWESOME!
    Hope you have a wonderful week....just think soon Reign will be over....but she'll be onto something else for sure!

  5. I too love rainy days! I am a WA girl so we get a LOT of them. We pretty much go outside unless it's really pouring! :) I have not watched Castle. There are a ton of shows on my to watch list! I am so afraid of starting one though and then being addicted! :) Happy February to you!

  6. OM Goodness! I could be reading my own blog post..haha!! I am right there with you!! We got into Grey's Anatomy and FINALLY finished that series last week. It has been the background noise of my lack of productivity for a while now. I find it hard to work with the TV on and prefer to work in silence or with a little music playing. However, it's hard to stay isolated in the office when everyone else is among the "living"...

    I also have to get organized, update products and get my planning and time management on track. I have so many things I want to do and too many things I HAVE to do.. and when I have time to slow down and work on some things, I can;t seem to remember what project I want to get started on..haha..

    Compared to me, you have been a master of keeping up with it all! I hope you have a very productive week ahead!!
