These beauties came from a cherry tree in our backyard...we've had the tree for several years, and have harvested maybe a dozen cherries over the years. This year, though, some type of harmonic convergence has resulted in dozens and dozens of delicious cherries for us.
What does that expression mean, anyway, life is just a bowl of cherries?
It was a good weekend. Graduation is always bitter sweet to me...I never realize how much I'll miss some students until they're standing in front of me, capped and gowned, with huge smiles on their faces. It was even harder this year because we celebrated my PhD student's completion of all her hard work...and now she's Dr. Tusinski, and off to Germany for three weeks, and then off to her new career at Marquette in Milwaukee. I'll miss her very, very much.
We had a great time at Kati's party on Saturday, and then last night Tim and I went to dinner at El Vaquero, a great tapas place in Eugene.
I've been spinning now, in preparation for my class on Sunday with Judith McKenzie McCuin. Yes, Black Sheep Gathering weekend is finally here!
I made my summer to do list and didn't even freak out about it. Lots of interesting projects, research wise, administration wise, and of course knitting wise!
