The hardest part of the semester is done and I have also concluded my very time-consuming service obligation. Amazon First Reads is here, it’s finally getting colder, Beto will finally stop inflicting himself on the voters, and Halloween activities are behind us.
I have a big week ahead of me – I’m cooking a huge shepherd’s pie to feed the whole parish, lunching with the Chancellor, giving a talk about Ukraine here in town, and meeting two article submission deadlines – but still I feel restful.
This is my favorite day of the year aside from New Year’s, and daylight savings night is just icing on the cake.
By the way, N and I will be celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary on the thirteenth. So it’s a good month altogether.
