Last week, the president of the UO came out and said 'we'll be back as a residential university in the fall'. Then of course came a bunch of caveats, but no matter, the message went out that We. Are. Back.
Not so much. At most, I will have one in-person class a week, held in a room that is designed to hold three times the number. Most classes over 40 people will be online. And that will happen if we have testing, contact tracing, and a non-stressed system, none of which are guaranteed.
So it looks like we'll be living here through the end of 2020, with me going in once a week to do the class thing. That is really fine with me. It just seems so weird that we came out here initially for spring break, then for a month, then through the summer, and now through the end of the year. It's just weird.
I did get an email that my dentist is planning to reopen on Monday, with lots of stuff in place for safety. I have a cleaning scheduled on June 9 which I would imagine I'll try to keep, as long as things seem to be OK. There should be a new cria by then (knock wood) so it might be a good time to spend a few days in Eugene.
I finished (finally) the local yarn store shawl and also did the weaving in on Circus Movement. I blocked them both and dried them first in the sauna, and now they're out on the deck.

Hope your weekend is fine!
