July Currently!

Wow! I totally forgot July even began today. Where the heck is my summer vacation going?!

Link up with Farley!

Listening: It is cool enough today to have the windows open! I love hearing the sounds of my neighborhood in summer.

Loving: See above! I adore that it is only in the low 70s right now.

Thinking: I always get a little blue after July 4 because it means my summer is about half over. How did June go by so fast?

Wanting: We just got back from our vacation up north! It was incredible. I fell in love with Mackinac Island and the Leelanau Peninsula. A couple pics from our trip.

We hiked, we biked, we drank lots of wine and ate lots of good food, and I am sad it's over.

Needing: But now it's money-saving time. We have two weddings coming up for which we have to travel, plus house projects we need to do.

All star: I have always been the go-to paper editor. Obviously, now that I teach English, that is part of my job when grading essays. But even in college, girls on my floor would come to me and ask if I could edit their papers for them. I should have charged money!


  1. I'm so jealous of your weather! We're in the 90s in Texas. It's cooler than normal for us, but it's still so hot and humid.

  2. Your pictures from vacation are making me super jealous! So pretty! My "needing" this month was to get away....after looking at your pics, I'm needing it even more! :)

  3. I love your photos! Beautiful! I wish I enjoyed editing papers as much as you do. That's always last on my list of things to grade. Enjoy the rest of your vacation! Carol's Teaching Garden

  4. I'm so jealous of your weather! It has pretty much been muggy, yucky, & rainy on and off here for the past two weeks!

    As for Criminal Minds, I'm pretty sure I've watched 90% of the series on A&E, but I was determined to watch them in order, skipping the episodes I've seen a million times. I'm on season 7. Also, I think everyone should have a "Derrick Morgan" at work, don't you? =)

  5. I've been thinking the same is summer half over?! Can we rewind?

  6. How great to have the windows open. I don't know how it happens but July 4th always seemed to be the end of my summer and then I would start "go mode" to get my room ready before the teacher workdays even started! Hopefully you can still find a few days to relax!

  7. Great minds "think" alike! I'm right there with you. :) Summer flies by.
