July Currently

Happy July, my friends!  I am linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her July Currently linky party.  I'm not going to say "Is it July already?" because I have been looking forward to summer break for a while now, and it is finally here!
After reading about poor Farley's misfortunes I found it hard to put that I am wanting or needing anything.  (In secret I would LOVE two more Bloglovin' followers - I'm at 198!  Sooooo close!)  We have made some progress in the quest for a barbecue that doesn't rust out every two or three years.  My husband has found a couple of stainless steel ones with a lifetime guarantee.  Fingers crossed...  Today the humidex is supposed to be 39 degrees Celsius/102 degrees Fahrenheit which is pretty hot for this un-airconditioned house.  So we are definitely celebrating Canada Day with dinner out!  On the 4th of July, I'm going to run with a friend, take her to Costco, and eat a delicious lunch.  (Do you notice that I seem to talk about food a lot?  I love eating!  And I love eating out!)

I have been reading The Daily Five (second edition).  I had read the original edition a few years ago.  There are significant changes to the second edition that made it worth getting.  It has actual lesson plans and excellent examples added.
I'll keep you posted as I read the last half of the book.  Have a great day!!


  1. I've ordered the Daily 5 book, can't wait to read it over the summer (when it finally starts for me!) I hope you get your BBQ, they are the best in the summer!

  2. 102 degrees and no air conditioning???? Ouch... I feel worse for you than I do for Farley! ;) I will help you out on reaching 200, I need to follow more 4th grade blogs as I may be headed there myself! Hope you get some relief from the heat today!

  6. My GOODNESS it's hot there! I didn't know it got that hot there.
    If I could follow you again I would, just to get you to your goal. ; )
    I think your plans for the 4th sound good. That sounds like a perfect day to me!

  7. We have a stainless steel BBQ and it hasn't rusted. Had it now for 10 years. Good luck with yours.

  8. I didn't know there was a new Daily 5 out I will have to look into that one. Good luck with your BBQ, and I hope it cools down a little. I would always prefer the heat to cold, but 102 is hot!
