What a lazy and hectic week this has been. I spent several days trying to package some materials about my teaching to send to an awards committee--admittedly, this consumed far too much of my time, but in the end, I am always honored by the opportunity. I caught up with some friends, since I just got back into town, and I started writing, editing, etc. on some work that's been lingering over my head over the break---nothing completed, just working. Here're are a few pictures that I took this week!
