Jan Currently, First Book of 2014, & #runtteacherrun

Posting twice today ... eek! First linking up with Farley.

I only saw part of the special (and have never been to Las Vegas) but it's kind of fun to hear his take on these older songs. Some I like less than the original but still think it's fun to hear. Some I like just as much. Some I like even more!

Found the boxes of books in storage (note to the world ... 1)Don't ever accumulate enough stuff that you need to get a storage unit; and 2)If you do ... LABEL BOXES. LABEL THEM WELL.) and they are on the shelves. But they're not ... arranged yet. Here's a "shelfie" tease that will make me look like a geek but oh well. Embrace it, right? ;) The other shelves will take longer. But there will be an HP shelf. And a Mo Willems shelf. And an Anne of Green Gables shelf. That much I know.

Things are starting to come together. Heavens, though ... there are still so many boxes and bags of packing paper that are hard to get rid of out here (no recycling :().

I've seen Frozen and the Hobbit. But of "holiday" flicks that's about it. I still need to see Catching Fire and Saving Mr. Banks and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

Planning food. That has to be better this year. (When I find my menu board we'll start there ... it got "made" over the summer and then packed away during the house showing period.)

I'm LDS so anything more has never been a part of my traditions. But that's what my family has called sparkling cider for years and years and years. Holidays and special occasions? Pop THAT top.

And then Sheila of Book Journey.

Hide and Seek (Capture the Flag, #2)Hide and Seek by Kate Messner

No special reason it's number one other than it's a school library copy and I want to finish it so I can get a kid to read it next week! Love a good mystery. Back to reading. Or since the weird tingly pinkies are back maybe arranging bookshelves. Or the movies? We'll see. Just a couple more days of freedom left!


PS As soon as I get the allergies a little better under control (this not taking ANYTHING before testing MIGHT KILL ME) I will post a bit about #runteacherrun. Last year I ran a 5K first thing on 1/1. Then did really well for three weeks. Then got appendicitis. And ... even though I recovered without complications I just seemed to be behind and out of my groove and while there were some good spurts here and there as a whole the rest of the year was a wash. So here's to the groove back. #RUNTEACHERRUN


  1. Posting twice is perfectly okay when you have lots to say! You can't go wrong with Garth!

    First Grade a la Carte

  2. Oh, I almost posted twice today, but I ran out of steam. I'm also picking up more of a running habit this year. I will have to learn more about #runteacherrun for sure. I'm starting a Workout Wednesday feature... maybe it will turn into a link up for fit teachers? I could absolutely have a Mo Willems shelf- love him and so do my students and my boys. :)


    Always Adapting

  3. I would love a wall bookshelf! Our house is too small for something like that. Happy New Year!

  4. I don't have Hide and Seek! Let me know what you think. Might have to wish list it at Follett.
