And you?

Right now I'm listening to a CD of Arabic/Moroccan music that one of my French I students gave me. It's just completely awesome. I'm trying to wrap gifts, when in reality I need to be working on a mammoth scrapbook album that has to be finished for Christmas for tomorrow. Yes, by tomorrow. Hence why I am consuming Diet Coke.

I had the best teaching moment yesterday. To see teenagers choosing to try authenitc Moroccan couscous over sweet treats and exclaim, "Man! Dude! This stuff IS pretty good!" made me feel a-ok. Perhaps the world will someday be a bit OK. The best part is I got to take the extra couscous home. How wonderful. The student's grandmother is here for a stay, and she made the couscous herself. This stuff was incredible. I usually don't like to blog about class, but this was just one of those teaching days that one will remember and retell again and again and again.

Happy holidays, everyone!

Wait, are you bulbs not sprouting? or are they not blooming? Not blooming I wouldn't worry about. They shouldn't be in direct sun anyway, I don't think. Mine aren't blooming either - but our house is so cold I'm worrying about them -- they're getting so tall! I don't think they are rotting - they're not sitting in the water, right? can you see the roots?

hey sweetie! love that you shared the teaching moment!

you have got to check out Putmayo for music I have a fabulous Arabic Groove CD - it is one of Ramey's favorites, and if you can please a 13 yr old you know it's hot ;)

(hope the kidlet is feeling groovey in the morning too)

PS - if I remember correctly you haven't had your bulbs in long enough to bloom yet, but if they are getting tall then they need more light (or you will be staking) - think epiphany for blooms

Merry Merry! luvs ya!
