Yesterday, I went to the Sheep and Wool Festival with my mother. It was a much nicer weekend weather-wise than I expected. It's the third or fourth time I've gone to the festival. It gets bigger every year. For anyone interested in natural fiber yarn, sheep, goats, llamas, rabbits, alpacas, knitting, crocheting, felting, spinning, weaving - it is heaven.
Computer problems in Samsonville (again). I thought I might have to bring "old faithful" down there (my first nice computer, old, but still high end and very usable) or buy a new laptop and bring the current one down there, but I managed to get an older computer I already had there working and networked. Crisis averted for now. (I joke that if I am ever without a job, I could start a computer business. Not something I want to do, supporting my own household is more than enough ~ but it would be better than a lot of other options.)
Today, an interesting new university-wide (and by university, I mean system) "service" opportunity presented itself! It's been a decade since I've seriously considered the issue in more than an arms-length way, but it will be fascinating to draw upon some skills and knowledge from earlier in my career, and to do some networking (while consuming salad with raspberry vinaigrette dressing a la Marriott). I'm so incredibly busy -- but can't turn something like this down.
My MIL is having surgery today. Kind of an edgy day as a result.
