Signed, sealed, delivered

I signed my new contract this morning. I've started working on syllabi and I have to say that I love creating a syllabus. I love choosing texts, and designing assignments. There is so much potential before the semester starts.

Other than that, it's been basic summer puttering around kind of stuff going on here. Cooper and I did swim lessons for two weeks. His favorite part was jumping off the side of the pool. It kept me on my toes because he would just launch himself off the side and trust that I would catch him.

We planted a bunch of new flowers on Saturday. Friday we had a devastating storm blow through. We got a couple inches of water in an hour, and the wind and hail shredded some of my plants and knocked leaves off the trees. Not to mention we ended up with water in the basement. So that was a fun way to spend the weekend. It was fun picking out new flowers though. I basically went through the nursery and picked out anything pink or purple that caught my eye.

Work on the dissertation is coming, slowly but surely. But slowly.
