Sunday Salon: July 4, 2021

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz hosts The Sunday Salon. 

  • We Still Here: Pandemic, Policing, Protest, and Possibility by Marc Lamont Hill (for work. Similar to Angela Davis' Freedom is a Constant Struggle since it was questions posed by Frank Barat, then answered by the author. Interesting insights into the issues)
  • The President is Missing by James Patterson and Bill Clinton

This week's work included a zoom with my new #DisruptHistory group and getting master schedules from every school for next year so I know who is going to participate in my instructional materials pilots, one last union meeting, and a meeting with my new supervisor. I don't officially have a work day until July 22 so I hope I don't get called in!
I had a lovely walk with a long-time friend this week. It felt good to catch up on our lives, families, etc. and the weather here has been really good so that was a bonus!
I watched England beat Ukraine in the Euro Cup semi-finals (soccer/football) and now look forward to seeing them play Denmark on Wednesday.

We went to a picnic at our new-ish next door neighbor's house yesterday. They are really nice and interesting people so that was fun. I left the picnic early to attend the grand opening of my high school's new stadium (normally I wouldn't care, but it took 4 years and $37 million, is stunning, and I am the Alumni Association President). It was actually really fun to see so many alumni in attendance and to catch up with people I haven't seen in a long time.

Happy 4th of July to those in the US who are celebrating! 

This photo is of the books that I planned to read during the month of June. I finished them all plus 6 more (Wake, Girl with the Louding Voice, Paying the Land, The Lucky Ones, How Lucky, and People You Meet on Vacation). Most were on my 20 (15) books of summer list so I have now read 10 books toward that goal.

This photo is the books I plan to read in July. The Olympics are starting on the 23rd, which will take up lots of my time, so we'll see how the reading goes near the end of the month.
