Actually quite enjoying the indexing, despite the looming deadline. Also, the English language has changed more in the past 500 years than Latin has (Yes, I understand why), which has made for some interesting reading.

Tomorrow, I’m investing a chunk of the day in time with my daughter — both a field trip and her weekly Brownies meeting — so I’m doing the burning-the-candle-at-both-ends thing again. Sleep is for the weak — or at least the weekend.

Dogwood flowering near the library today (Note that the green centers are actually the unopened buds.)

Very good day with daughter for her field trip. I recommend trips to any spots listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The kids wrote with ink made from walnuts and quills, put together a mini barn with notched and marked posts and beams, took a turn at both threshing wheat and churning butter, and heard a lot about basic life two and a half centuries ago. I knew a lot of it already, but it was cool watching others see it for the first time, even if they were fidgety and had short attention spans, what with being only 9 or 10 years old…
