Sunday Salon: February 19, 2017


My life in books:
It's been a slow two weeks of reading! Since my last Sunday Salon that talked about books I've read the following books:

My life outside books:
Rain. We've had rain in southern California. There is new growth on the plants, the ground is actually wet, and the flowers are blooming (they think it's spring already). In fact, on Friday we had a major storm come through the area. It created mud slides, sink holes, creeks running over, etc. At many points during the day we were getting an inch of rain per hour. All that, but our local reservoir is still only at 34%. Yikes!

The past two weeks have really flown by. Work is going well; I feel as if I am getting the hang of the new job, the ideas are flowing, and I am getting into a good rhythm. In fact, I'm a bit overwhelmed by the amount that I have to do now! But, that's exciting.

I've been watching Netflix's "Stranger Things" on recommendation from a couple colleagues. I like the 1980s aspects to it, but am not really a fan of the alien-esque part of it. But, it's only 8 episodes so I will finish the first season, however, I won't watch season 2. Since this is a four-day weekend for me I plan to watch "13th," which is about the 13th amendment.

My daughter has joined the track team at her school. My daughter. Track. Hmmmmm. She is a dancer who, since the age of 7 has not done a team/organized sport. And she isn't a runner so needless to say she's been in pain during this first week of practices. In fact, she's signed on to do pole vaulting. She is just over 5 feet tall. This should be interesting. :-)
