Go away for a few days and what happens?
Well, um, nothing much. I stopped by my office today to see if there were any frantic messages on my phone or in my box, but no. Everything seems to have run smoothly while I was gone. Great. There's nothing like feeling needed!
Well, okay, a few things happened while I was out. One of my colleagues had a beautiful baby girl. Another one sent me a proposal for a grant from a committee of which I am no longer chair. The garden produced many many hot peppers of various types. The heat element in the oven shorted out, producing a lovely sparkly show before dying completely. A big pile of mulch appeared. Progress was made on the library. Committees were appointed. Life goes on.
I ought to have just enough time to deal with some of those hot peppers before classes start on Monday. It's the calm before the storm...so let's spice it up a little. Salsa, anyone?
