  • Mood:


Much of the world is currently celebrating let's-all-give-each-other-presents days, either today or some other day recently or soon. I also participated in this. Here are the presents I received!

  • Americanah: A Novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates by Wes Moore
  • Egghead: Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone by Bo Burnham
  • Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Volume 2: Water-Harvesting Earthworks by Brad Lancaster
  • Foraging California: Finding, Identifying, and Preparing Edible Wild Foods in California by Christopher Nyerges
  • Delta Machine by Depeche Mode
  • Loud Like Love by Placebo
(Yes, I am an old person who continues to acquire music in the form of actual CDs.)

Also, other stuff:
  • a pressure cooker to make food with
  • teacups, saucers, soup bowls, tidbit plates, and a serving platter to complete my set of my china pattern
  • a hose cart to wind and unwind my garden hose with
  • waterproof gardening gloves to harvest pecans with (without staining my hands!)
  • native plant seeds: yellow chick lupine, mountain garland, and birds' eyes
  • a throw pillow for my office
  • turrones from Mikie
Hooray for having new stuff! What exciting new stuff do you have?
