Don't Let it Get Away

Today was really windy--this was the best I could do.  I look like I'm giving myself the underarm-sniff test.  You should see the other pictures.  Other than that, today was freaking fantastic.  First of all, I got paid to read.  That's right:  I subbed for an English class today, and students had SSR (sustained silent reading) for every class.  So I logged some serious SSR time for myself as well.  I nearly finished the book I started last night, The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan.  Other than fashion and cooking, reading is my favorite pastime.  In an ideal world, I'd get paid to read every day.  The gorgeous, albeit windy, weather topped off my beautiful day.  For a Monday, I couldn't ask for more.  

On a side-note, the SSR thing totally made me think of Ramona Quimby (series of children's books by Beverly Cleary, some of my faves).  I can't remember which book, but in one they talk about DEAR, which is like SSR.  Ramona was trying to figure out what that stood for, and came up with Drop Everything and Run! (of course it's Drop Everything and Read).  I don't know why, but at the time, I just thought that was the funniest thing.  Yes, I probably need to get out more.
