Libraries and Oranges



 

So, I have been away from the blog for sometime, it’s true.  But, they gave me a library.  Seriously, a whole library, that is all mine.  I get to make all the decisions and plan all the programs, I even get to make the displays and pick out the stories for story time.


I have been a little distracted to say the least.  More than distracted, I have been in love.  If I were to have written down all of the things I wanted in a job, I probably would not have thought of half of the things that I love about this job.  I am running an entire elementary school library, and I am the only one in there, thus making most decisions on my own, and also figuring it all out as I go.  Sadly, due to budget restraints, it is only a part time position, which you would not know by everything I have been able to pull off.  One book, One School anyone?

This job is by far more perfect for me than I could have hoped for, and though there is the very real threat of budget problems that make this job a bit insecure, I am so, so happy that I have it.  This should not mean that I let the other things I love fall to the wayside, like The Literary Foodie, but that is what I have done .  I have the tendency to put all of my energy, creativity, and thought into whatever major project I have going and not leaving much left over.



But then the orange trees started producing fruit.  And producing.  And producing.  You may remember from my little rant last year, Pick Your Damn Fruit, Or How I Love Winter in Sacramento,  how strongly I feel about the fact that I live in a place that oranges grow.  This year I had the good idea of putting a request on freecycle to pick peoples citrus fruit that they are not eating.  I got a pretty awesome response and so, every few days Rob and I have gone to different homes in Sacramento to pick from different trees. We have ended up with yellow grapefruits, lemons, and bags and bags of oranges.



As you have figured out, when I have a large quantity of something I see it as a project, and these oranges were no different.  Now that I am not (as) afraid of canning, that is what we decided to do.  The results?


Shop Indie Bookstores

4 4oz & 2 16oz jars of Orange Beet Chutney from this recipe
3 4oz & 1 16oz jars of Morning Cheer Marmalade from The Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving
2 16oz jars of Honey-Orange Slices from The Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving
Two trays of Candied Orange Slices from this recipe

(with hopes of doing an orange and lemon curd in the next few days)

So, not that I needed any, but February is yet again giving me more reasons that I love living in California.  I can’t make any promises, but I hope to start learning some time management so that I can actually do all of the things that I love to do.  We will see. 

But, seriously, MY OWN LIBRARY!

  7. The deck of slides will allegedly be shown to researchers at the International Astronomical Meeting in Mexico on Sept. 27.

  10. While freeview is currently experimenting with running a few HD channels, but if you really want to make the most of your new set you really have to pick up a subscription service, either through Virgin or ikanautos. Both of these companies offer HD specific packages that come with a special version of their normal set top boxes which can relay a special HD signal. Without these packages, you'll be stuck with standard definition television. On average, the HD packages cost about a third more than a standard package.

  12. These two online resources let you enter in your location and tell you which channels you should be able to receive for free with an antenna. In my case, I'm able to get full, clear HD versions of ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS, and some local news affiliates. It's not nearly as many ikanautos channels as I'd be able to get with a cable subscription, but it's also a small, one-time investment that lets me watch "Bob's Burgers" and the nightly news for free. BUY: 1byone's 50 Miles Amplified HDTV Antenna with Amplifier on Amazon for $29.99 How does this stack up to cable? Pretty well, actually! Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, and smaller, more niche streaming services means there's always something new to watch. The HDTV antenna is also a major plus for those can't-miss live events, like the Oscars or big, prime-time shows like "The Big Bang Theory."
