Hey! Hey! The first of May!

 Rabbit rabbit and all those start-of-a-new-month greetings. I have five weeks of classes and one week of finals and then I'm Done (uppercase D on Done).

Yesterday was my birthday, and I had a faculty meeting (ugh) and a lot of grading (ugh) and student issues (ugh). The weather was kind of miserable, and we were disappointed because two carry-out things we wanted to do weren't available. But I got to spend my birthday with my best friend, and he showered me with gifts, a lovely dinner, and a home made delicious cake, so for a second Covid birthday it was as good as it gets. 

I played around with some gel printing:

And I knit a bit on the new cowl:

And a friend sent these beauties:

And the awful weather moved out and we were greeting with this view when we woke up:

And all is well in my corner of the world.
