The light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train

Summer vacation is fast coming to a close – I’m already putting together my framework for the coming semester, printing outlines, planning the first week of classes…
So it occurred to me that I should probably get my act together and post some photos from our grand European excursion. In the four weeks we were there, we went to Wales, Scotland and France, and made several day trips to various English locales, including Bath, Oxford, Milton Keynes and Bourton on the Water, and spent a lovely afternoon at the Batsford Arboretum:
The magnolias were almost finished, but this lovely flower was waiting for me.
Over the next few weeks, things will still be nuts, but I’m hoping that as a few of my various projects wind up that I will have more time and energy to think about my blog. I miss it 🙂
In the meantime, please do check out the photos, over on my flickr page.

  1. printing outlines , planning fi…….
    I thought it would be final exams not first week of classes! thinking of the end before it begins- but then, I;m am student now so that’s probably typical…!

  2. Oh, the finals are planned, as are the other major assessments. The first week of classes is the most awkward stage of the semester, because not all of the students have shown up, and those that have don’t all have the books. As a teacher, I have to get on with the course content, but I also have to accommodate the settling-in period.
