Sunday Salon: December 9, 2012



My life in books: 
I finished the Lotus Eaters and am now working my way through Dana Reinhardt's The Things a Brother Knows. I am not too far in, but I've heard it's really good.

What's going on in my life:
My first experience with union negotiations turned out to be easy! We got back our furloughed days so teachers are happy.

Something to know about me is that I LOVE satsumas (seedless tangerines). They are in season here November through February so I am a super happy woman right now. 2 years ago we put a satsuma tree in our yard. Visions of my own personal satsuma supply danced in my head.... Nothing. Another year went by... nothing. And then this year a bumper crop! They taste so good!!!!! Look what I picked today!

My daughter was coveting these boots that had bling, but her feet are too small (story of her life at this point). So we bought the version of the boots that came in her size and today I got crafty. It is the first time I have done anything like this and I did a really good job, if I do say so myself (and I do). Amazing what a little krazy glue can do! I'll have to see if I have the desire to do the heels as well.
