Counting the weeks

April 11, 2015

The spring slogs on. I have three weeks of classes left to go and three weeks has never felt so long. I am so very ready for my sabbatical. My office-mate is about to leave for a very exciting two-year fellowship at another university, so we’re both getting itchy to get out.

We still have snow on the ground, although the past week has seen most of it melt. The front yard is almost entirely clear. I don’t know why the back yard always takes so much longer to melt, but it does.

Construction has started on the new house on the lot next to us. It has made for some noisy days. I hope it will go quickly and we won’t be living with construction for most of the summer.
