But, darn it, I really don't want to go back to work today. 6am wakeups. So little daylight to myself and my garden. Driving there. Driving back. Grading papers. Grading papers. Grading papers. It feels like it never ends. At heart, I'm a very selfish person, and I just want to spend time doing only what I want to do. Which brings us to the truth about going to work today: thank God I have 200 kids waiting for me at school to remind me there is life outside my own head.
I'm horrible at staying on top of online projects in which I involve myself, but this one may be different. With luck, I'll be able keep on this one, Harvest Mondays, hosted by Daphne's Dandelions. Each Monday, I'll post pics of what I've harvested in the week.
This past week, I've harvested plenty o' arugula for salads. As well, the Owari satsumas have finally sweetened up. Most of what I've eaten so far, I've eaten right next to the tree, tossing the peels on the ground.
lemon curd and these lemon cookies (thanks for the suggestion, Ann), with and without poppy seed. I've made this salad dressing, and today, I'll be infusing some olive oil with Meyer lemon peel. As well, I need to make another big batch of preserved lemons since I'm beginning to run low and I can't have a preserved lemon free refrigerator. With many more to come, I can continue to dream of ways to use them.
That is, when I'm not grading papers.
