July Currently Linky!

      I am liking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her Currently July Linky!  I still can't believe that it is already July!  That means that summer is quickly sliding by.  

Listening- I have a habit of putting HGTV on in the background while I blog or work on the computer.  I like watching House Hunters, Property Brothers, and Love it or List it!  
Loving- I LOVE sleeping in.  I know it is not "really" sleeping in, but when I don't babysit I have been sleeping until about 8, which is sleeping in for me, since during the school year I get up either at 4:30 or 5:30 each day!
Thinking- I just realized that it is July and that is making me think that summer is going by too fast!  I have a few trips planned for July and I am going to try to make the most of the summer freedom!
Wanting- Last week we had afternoon storms every day.  BUT, since Saturday or Sunday it has been raining or cloudy and very humid every day! I am ready for some sunshine!  Plus, this week I have the whole week off and I was hoping to spend a little time at the pool.  Oh, well!
Needing- I brought home a BUNCH Of books to create novel studies for.  I have started creating questions for a few of them but haven't started typing anything yet! I need to get started on my summer to do list!
Tips, Tricks, or Hints- I have had a some extra time since it is summer time and I have realized that planning out my blog posts, as much as I can, helps me to post on a regular basis and with topics that I feel good about posting!  This has helped me and it may help you, too!

Well, I may not be off to the pool today, but I need to get moving on some of these to do list items!  


  1. Those home shows are fun to have on in the background...usually you can pick up some neat tips or cool products for the house. However, they usually make me want to start a project around the house...

    1. They make me want to have a house! I rent right now:(

  2. I love HGTV too. I also always have it on as background noise..I've also figured out that I can watch past episodes on lifestyles on demand! That channel now puts me to sleep at night too lol. I'm totally with ya on needing to step on that summer to do list. I brought home a ton of books too to create novel studies. At least you're one step ahead of me with some questions..I got nothing :/ haha

    1. Good luck with your to do list! I did get started on one of my little projects this afternoon!

  3. You are the first EVER of my rule of 3, love that rule! So good to just be nice.

    Your currently and my currently are very close to the same. I actually have HGTV on in the background right now, but it's muted so I could think straight while I typed. LOL, I can't even hear it and it's on! I have problems.

    North Carolina's weather and Ohio's weather sound almost identical. We had a WIND CHILL yesterday! What is that?

    I just started blogging and love your point about blogging about things that make you feel good. That is good advice, no need to force it. I am just a little too excited right now to finally have started!

    Good luck on your novel studies! Hope the weather gets better!


    1. Sometimes I have to mute it to concentrate, too! haha I am from Ohio and my parents have said the same thing about the weather. I am coming up there next week and I am hoping that the SUN is there, even if it is not here! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I'm a night owl so I love sleeping in too! I actually haven't slept-in in a long time! :( Enjoy the pool! BTW, I'm your newest follower!

    Cheers To School

    1. Thanks for stopping by and following my blog! I will have to stop over to yours as well! :)

  5. HGTV is the best, ha! I am so glad I found your blog. I haven't been able to sleep in...crazy! I am awake by 7:00, I don't know what's wrong with me ;)

    1. I think we get SO used to waking up all year it feels weird to "sleep in". Thanks for stopping by!
