Happy Wednesday, friends! I am so glad you're here for this month's edition of Currently. Today we are talking about the things we're currently loving, hoping, playing, needing, and feeling. I'll jump right in!
Loving: I am currently loving my early morning routine. Since I started working, I've had to adapt this several times before getting it just right, and I think I have it down now. I wake up at 5:45 by my alarm, I come downstairs to let the dogs out while my coffee makes, I let them in and settle back in to either read my book or blog posts I'm behind on. I take my cup into the kitchen and start the dryer to freshen up what's inside, then I go upstairs to get dressed at 6:45. I'm back down at 7:15, and I make my lunch (and Todd's), drinking my second cup of coffee as I go about, then I fold some clothes, and have my quiet time before heading out for the day. I leave every morning at 7:45 because I love being early. Once I'm at work, this allows me to get my day planned out almost entirely, without having to rush around. I have lessons planned by the end of each day for the following day, but this gives me time to make copies, check email, and collect my thoughts before jumping in at 9:05.
These are examples of what I do during my early morning arrival. I guess you could say that I am loving the routine I've established, with the help of some great examples in my co-workers.
Hoping: Currently, I am hoping that we stop having weather that turns bad or dangerous. I know that may sound like I'm joking, but I'm not, I assure you. Even if I loved spring, I would immensely dislike it because of the unpredictability of the weather. We've had tornado weather for three weeks in a row, and I am hoping it changes soon! Each year, it's exactly like this, but that doesn't mean it's something I'll ever grown accustomed to.
This was what it went from on Friday of last week. The sky turned dark and threatening, and once night fell, the tornado sirens started going off. Tell me I'm not the only one who hates this weather!
On a more spiritual note, I'm hoping that you have a place to attend worship on Easter Sunday this weekend! Even if you never go to church, it's a good weekend to go and to celebrate. As a believer, this is my favorite holiday to celebrate after Christmas. Resurrection Sunday, as I like to call it, is the most promising and hope-filled day in the lives of believers, and it's one I love to celebrate. Is there something about this holiday that you love?
Playing: Currently, I am playing our choir music on repeat, because we have three services this weekend, and I need to learn the music.
This is an app that we have and use to learn our music. Our awesome friend Karen plays each part for us and uploads it to the app so that we can hear our own parts. In case you haven't guessed, I sing Alto.
Needing: I am needing to clean my house and order groceries. I keep forgetting about groceries this week, so I still haven't gotten my act together. Just being honest!
Feeling: I am feeling excited because it's a four day work week with the possibility of early dismissal tomorrow with impending tornadic weather. Aside from Good Friday, on Monday we have a professional development day, which I'm excited for since it's my first one. I know, I know, I'm a total newbie here, but I am anxious to learn what my duties will be during our week of state testing and to receive trauma training.
Thanks a bunch for linking up with us today! I hope you visit back here often and check for blog posts. I'm posting about three times a week right now, and since I don't have a subscribe button, you could just bookmark my blog on your computer and check back that way. Someone mentioned not wanting to miss out on posts that I make, so I wanted to share what I do. In May we will be sharing what we're currently loving, picturing, craving, wishing, and collecting. I hope you join us! As always, thank you for reading my blog, friends! Love to all.
