This top is getting there:
The house is getting there: the inside and outside are painted (blue outside, white inside), cabinets and counters are getting sorted, the tile is about to go in--pictures soon.
The term is getting there: even though we have five weeks of class time left, the last week is presentations and the second to last week is Memorial day and 'work day' so I really only have three weeks left of teaching. That is doable (although lots of grading and 12 theses to be defended).
I read a good book: The Feather Thief which is pretty much The Orchid Thief with feathers (jk) (but not really). Really really interesting story about someone who stole a bunch of beautiful bird feathers from a natural history museum. For fly-tying. You can't make this stuff up.
