Sunday Salon (8/16/09)

My summer is now officially over. Tomorrow I head back to work. No kids yet, but they are coming soon. This week will be spent in meetings and arranging our classroom, also getting to know my new co-teacher. So, even though I am finally home I have a feeling my online time will still be limited. The next two weeks will be busy.

My last trip of the summer went well. Got to show a friend around San Francisco over a weekend, welcomed my niece into the world, and got to visit with family and friends. Depeche Mode canceling their concert was the only disappointment. I am hoping to get tickets to see them in Dallas. This will be added to my list of shows I will be going to this fall. ACL Festival, U2/MUSE, SYTYCD Tour...

The first two weeks of August have been great but slow readingwise. I don't think that is going to change, unfortunately. Besides school, I have my friend's shawl to finish knitting before her wedding in September.
