grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

knit me more time...

It was the beginning of summer, it was nearly the end of summer.

Yesterday I didn't do anything that related to sociology. Actually, aside from thinking about whether or not my committee was spending part of their Saturday reading my prelim, I didn't even think about that much either. The day actually felt like summer, but at the same time I felt like it was too late to begin summer-- summer is almost over. This Friday I head to Philly for the conference, and then by the time I get back on the 17th it will be time to think about buying books and notebooks. What did summer look like yesterday? Well, we woke up late. I made a feta cheese and chive omelet. We went to the co-op. We drove out to Verona and ended up driving around Wisconsin farmland for a while. That drive through the farmland was unintended though, we were lost on our way to visit a friend who runs an animal shelter out there. We spent the afternoon hanging out with her a bunch of kittens- and managed to not come home with one! Once we were home we cleaned out the car, inside and out. Jo swears she didn't intend to squirt me with the hose but I don't believe her at all. We ate summer salad with flowers from our farmshare and then went to see a show a friend of ours was in. The all female-musician concert was down at UW on the lake. I had a beer and just relaxed. The music, the beer, the lake, sail boats and the kids running around in bathing suits just felt so wonderfully like summer. It felt like the beginning of summer and it is really pretty much toward the end. Today I really do need to get some things done though...
