A friend (and fellow member of my grad cohort) gave me this JJ’s Diner mug to celebrate the defense and filing of my dissertation. I LOVE IT. I’m hoping it will help me channel Leslie Knope a little more often.
This guy, being silly.
Gorgeous spring weather for the conference I was at last week.
Beautiful flowers, lots of sunshine. (And I really enjoyed the conference.)
On my way home, I was able to stop off to visit dear friends. They cooked me dinner and breakfast, which we enjoyed on their amazing porch-balcony, and they even parallel parked my car into a space tinier than I’d ever attempt on my own. It was the perfect way to break up the drive back from the conference, and such a treat to get to see them in real life (instead of over Skype) and in their lovely home.
I was happy to get back to this guy.
And to my porch.
And to our favorite weekend spot by the creek. Yesterday I brought a book and a blanket, and Boh and I enjoyed having the place to ourselves for the morning.
And then he came home and napped away the afternoon. A pretty perfect Sunday. (I almost got out my wheel yesterday. Stay tuned, I’m sure I’m going to do some knitting or spinning soon…)
