November 2015 Currently at Carol's Garden

With November come's the smells of pumpkin spice everything, plans for the Thanksgiving holidays (I can't believe I get an ENTIRE week off this year!), and the first real stirring of Christmas gift-planning. Please join Farley and me for this month's CURRENTLY!

Listening: Aaron Copeland's Appalachian Spring is one of my favorite pieces of music. This famous American composer based this beautiful piece of music on an Amish song, "Simple Gifts." I found a YouTube version with some lovely images.

Loving: so grateful for my family, my new job, and all the "simple gifts" God has given me.

Thinking: about my first observation in my new school. Soon I will have a ten minute walk-through, as well. Boy, it felt good to get through with the first one! I feel so much anxiety every time! How about you?

Wanting: to be able to eat all my favorite chocolate foods without gaining weight. Hah!

Needing: to find a new doctor for my kids. Since we have moved, it has been an ordeal to try to find a pediatrician or behavioral therapist who specializes in autistic children to see my son. They exist. They are just all booked up for several months. They also don't take phone calls after hours to schedule appointments. Since I don't get home until at LEAST 5:30 p.m. each day, I'm having a very difficult time trying to take care of this. So far I have called entire pages of numbers during my lunch breaks, all to no avail.

Yummy - Although I love the turkey, the stuffing, the mashed potatoes, and the fresh cranberry sauce, my favorite has to be the candied yams. Yummy! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
