We had plans for a low-key weekend but maybe not quite this low key. Austin is working late on some server issues (alien attack, my diagnosis). I'm not feeling 100%. It's gray and rainy out and we've had some very chilly nights and mornings (20s and 30s) though we're hoping it looks a bit warmer and sunnier for Paula's visit later next week.
I'm pleased that the Office of Graduate Studies has approved my application for "doctoral candidacy." It's sort of a wishy-washy term and status but it marks progress and I am now enrolled in dissertation credits for spring. So it's progress but also means lots of work ahead.
Time for some tea, a fire, and a good book.
