I've been a bit absent from blogland lately, but it's been busy around here. Hope to do some blog reading/commenting today and maybe even write a few posts! The biggest excitement was the start of school for Clara. That's her on the left. We've got a friend of hers staying with us for at least part of the school year. Her name is Carmen, and she is lovely and very low-impact. That's Carmen on the right, top.
Went to Cleveland, Ohio for a quick business trip. Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so they had decorated guitars all about the airport. I've actually been quite busy with lots of work matters (finishing a couple of articles, getting my syllabi ready for the new school year - I start teaching on Wednesday, taking care of some administrative matters, etc.)
Still volunteering at the Kitten Nursery on Wednesday nights and at Guide Dogs for the Blind Sunday mornings. May have to bow out of one of those as the year progresses, although the nursery will start slowing down in the fall as "kitten season" ends.
Enjoying watching my boy (in the middle) enjoy his summer. He leaves in less than two weeks to return to school. Will definitely miss him!
Hope you're all doing well and hope to get around for some blog visits soon.
