August Currently

Can't believe it is August already - we are up to 110 days at school on Monday.

I am linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for another currently, so here we go!
We went shopping today and bought a brand new washing machine. My old one had been driving me crazy for over a year - constantly becoming off balance and not washing property. We hooked it up as soon as we got home and not only did it wash quickly, but oh so quietly - very excited to do washing tomorrow (as if anyone would ever say that!).

Schoolwork, cleaning, schoolwork, cleaning, washing - that is on my list tomorrow - our drive to get the washing machine was an hour and a half each way so nothing else was done today!

I LOVE winter and LOVE rain.

I always start the new school year with new borders, I always need a change. I also love opening a new packet of whiteboard markers and writing on the board for the first time with them. Lastly, every year I always have a workbook to write down notes from meetings, PD's and planning - I LOVE picking a new design each year!


  1. It's so strange to hear talk about winter and hot chocolate when it is summer here in Wisconsin! :)

    So glad to hear that you got a new washing machine! I think that's probably the most used appliance in my house and when it is not working right, no one is happy!

    Happy to have found your blog through Currently. I'm your newest follower!

  2. Wow....I almost wish we were at 110 days of school. That way summer would be closer again. :)

  3. So addicting to get a new notebook! Hope the rest of the year goes great for you!

  4. Ok, I have to admit...I love Duck Dynasty! Uncle Si cracks me up!

  5. I had to smile when I read about your new washing machine... we got a new one not so long ago and I was exactly the same! Unfortunately I do a zillion loads of washing a week so it wore thin quickly but it was good while it lasted!

    I hope you have some rain soon... luckily we've had a lot this past week - but it's always good to have some more!

    Enjoy your washing :)

    1. I did 7 loads of washing today and then it started to rain, so I am over washing now!

  6. My washing machine gets a real workout and I am happy to hear that you are enjoying it :) I am hanging out for summer, definitely over

    1. Yes, but you live in Tassie, of course you are!

  7. l love new whiteboard markers too... but the Crayola pack I bought recently made me very cranky. They dried up within a few weeks of opening the packet! Usually they are awesome and last for yonks, I must have bought a dud packet. Every time I think about it I feel like emailing Crayola to let them know how disappointed I am. Teacher problems!! :)

    No fire for me here in Winter - sometimes I sleep with the window open just so it's cool enough for my big doona. :)

    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!

    1. Oh Laure, that would be so annoying! I definitely think you should send them an email - see if you can get a free packet out of them!
