This January I jumped on the Currently bandwagon, I almost forgot to catch it this month! March has totally felt like one big blur!! So, here’s what I’ve been up to this March.. Currently.
Listening: If you have been around long enough you know I LOVE MUSIC. I listen to iTunes Radio almost everyday but today I have YouTube playing old school club music for me. My daughter (the 9yo) was singing “It’s a fine day people open windows…” which made me pull up this song on YouTube:
But this Electronica mix just came on, the song by Alice DeeJay, Better Off Alone, reminds me of good times with my girls Shell & Sylvia.
Reading: So, I have a confession… remember how I told you I started this book, I did, but I stopped. I did not stop because I did not like the book I stopped because my husband and I agreed we would read the book together and work on DYING EMPTY together. However, eh hem, somebody is still waiting on somebody.
If you should ever walkaway with any knowledge of me, know that kindness truly matters to me. My heart is on my sleeve, I care and love people even if they don’t love me back. I appreciated this book for exemplifying kindness to kids. I’m glad both of my girls have read this book, I hope they will hold the lesson in their hearts FOREVER. Kindness matters. People Matter.
I’m still reading this book with the my students (my son and daughter). Last month we read Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, we’re keeping with Dahl. We’re also reading crazy amounts of poetry books to help with our poetry lesson.
I got pretty ambitious at the library Friday and picked up these books my friends suggested. I know I’m behind with Yes Please it’s so last year. BUT I’m loving it!! I don’t know why I waited this long to read it. Let’s hope I can find time to finish Yes Please, because I really want to read my other picks. I’m not a book juggler. :-/
Creating: Each week I have enjoyed creating cards and love notes for people in my life. I have also enjoyed partaking in art class with the kiddos. I have another installment of love letters going out soon. 🙂
Feeling: Good. My throat and eyes are a little itchy but that isn’t going to stop me! It’s SPRING BREAK!
Thinking: How the hell did I let my coffee get cold!?! Also: “I need to hurry up the kids are waiting on me.” and “I need to work on #TWSS when I get home.”
Encouraging: <-That’s one of the words I’m focusing on this year. I think I have been doing good at it but I don’t want to toot my own horn.
I encourage you to check out this post on Kindness
Or this post about a girl who has pulled herself up despite tough times..
And there’s this one where I get all sentimental about blogging..
And if that’s not enough you can always take a gander here, there’s something for everyone here 🙂
I encourage you to join Courtney and I this Thursday for That’s What She Said. Here is this week’s quote:
But most importantly… I encourage you to love. Go out into the world and love big! Shake the haters off, and love SO hard the haters want to love like you.
