Currently May

I always plan to link up with Farley each month for her Currently linky but I've missed it most months.  Finally got on track for this last full month of school!

Listening: I wanted some music to play for my Reading Restaurant (read about it here) on Friday and thought John Denver would be perfect.  I loved John Denver and had many of his albums when I was in high school but for some reason I never purchased any on CDs or MP3s.  A friend at school came to my rescue and burned me a CD of some of his best songs.  I have been listening to it all weekend!
Loving: I am absolutely loving the weather so far this spring- even the unexpected cold front that brought record May lows to the Houston area.  Usually by this time the Texas heat and humidity have started to move in.  I am not a fan of Texas in the summer time!
Thinking: There is still so much I want to do with my class this year, not to mention all of the end-of-year paperwork and preparations.  I'm trying not to get stressed yet!
Wanting: I want an Ipad (or 2 or 3 or..) so bad!  I love trying new technology, but I know there is a lot more I could do with my class with Ipads or even Itouches!
Needing: My house is a mess!  It needed cleaning before my little hospital stay, and since then I just haven't had the energy.  I hope to be able to make it a little more presentable today.
Summer Bucket List: My husband and I plan to drive to Colorado this summer.  We have been there a couple times when we took our daughter to visit Colorado State and again when we took her to school her freshman year, but we've never had time to really enjoy the Rockies.  We had planned to go last year, but there were so many fires at the time we wanted to go that we decided to head East and visit the Great Smoky Mountains instead.  Our daughter is staying in Fort Collins for the summer again, so this year we are visiting for sure!  Then we need to spend some time painting our downstairs and just freshening things up a little.  Once I get my sewing room reorganized, I am going to finish up a couple of quilts I've started so I don't feel guilty about buying more fabric and starting something new!  I always have good intentions of getting a lot done over the summer, but it's just too tempting to be lazy!
