Me on Monday

Waving Hi on Monday, along with others over at Sian's blog.
Usually when following along with this meme, I list the kind of weekend I had. But, today, I'm going to talk about my last week because it's been a very busy week. Why?
Well, it was a jump on the airplane and fly to Eastern Kentucky University with Clara kind of week because she's thinking of attending college there.
It's a beautiful campus, and we explored their farm (where we found a one hour old lamb).
It was a place where we ate grits and enjoyed a beautiful sunset.
I was home for day, where poor Aria dog is still recovering from ACL surgery. Her little friend Luna would really like her to come out to play:
Then it was time to jump back on a plane and fly to Michigan State University in East Lansing for a conference (but not before exchanging emails to plan a meet-up with a special visitor from England who is flying out to the West Coast this week).
It was an interesting conference, but the highlight for me was spending time with one of my oldest and dearest Professor friends (the photograph at the top was for the concluding dinner of the conference).  We met when I started my program to become a law professor; I interviewed at his law school when I was ready to begin teaching (though I went elsewhere); and our paths have crossed at conferences ever since.
I returned late Saturday night, and Sunday was a doing laundry, watching baseball on TV, going to the gym and getting ready for another busy week kind of day. But, Paul, Clara and I did turn it into a going out for a lovely sushi dinner kind of evening.
So, how was your week? Or weekend?

I did the whole week too, for a change. Yours looks a lot more exciting than mine! Poor Aria. My friend's dog, Lily, had the same surgery recently. I don't think she's forgiven him yet. Here's to a successful recovery for both of them.

sounds like a very busy week but well worth it, that lamb is so cute.

Wow: that's some week!

That looks like a beautiful campus..it's going to be interesting to see what she decides.

Have a great week! (tho it would take quite a bit to top the last one lol)

A busy week Rinda. Hope she chooses that college - it's beautiful!

You are having a busy time . The college looks lovely. We have been tripping around doing the same but have not needed to fly anywhere to look yet.....only trains.

Louise said...

oooh...the college looks wonderful. I hope this week is a little calmer for you.

Gosh, that's a whistle stop tour around your very busy week! How did Clara like the university? Nice to catch up with old friends :). Oooh, a UK visitor ...

You covered a lot of miles in one week. The Eastern Kentucky campus looks lovely! I'm off to see exactly where it is.

Cheri said...

that's quite the jet setting week!

Melissa said...

Wow - that certainly was a busy week. This past one was busy for me so I'm just getting around to waving back at everyone! :)

Miriam said...

My week stood still compared to yours! What a fabulous if busy time you had. I must say I'm impressed with the number of wine glasses in the first picture;) Hope Aria is on the mend by now.

I'm out of breath reading all that you did in one week. Sounds like that sushi dinner was the perfect way to end it.
