Juggling on a tightrope

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 flowers

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

  1. I hope you have fun on the field trip. I didn’t know that about the dogwood (nor about English changing more than Latin, although it makes sense as many people don’t regularly speak Latin anymore). I have learned two things today! (Also, that I need to be more patient, but that’s somewhat unrelated.) 🙂

    • Field trip was fun. I was shocked at how many people didn’t know what a parsnip or sweet potato was. Told the girl I’m dragging her to the store with me so she learns to identify more produce. 😉
