On the mend

My cold is getting much better. I went to school yesterday and didn't cough very much in the morning. Then I had a seminar class in which a friend was presenting. Of course, that was when I had a horrible coughing fit. And when I excused myself to have my coughing fit out in the hall, I twisted my ankle and slammed into the wall. Yes, I'm grace personified. The rest of the day I was fine. Of course.

It is hazy and foggy today. It's burned off a bit since I took this photo and the forecast is 59 F and sunny. We'll see. I have a huge exam on Monday that I must study for, so I won't get to enjoy the weather much. This school stuff is really cramping my weather enjoyment and handcrafting style. Galdarnit anyway.

In other school-related news -- even though there is another week left of my rotation, I have gone ahead and joined Dr. Karrer's lab. So, be prepared for five years of Tetrahymena updates. You'll feel so smart by the end, you'll want a doctorate, too.

Must study -- but first, Whad'ya Know?, coffee, and crochet. Then study.

Hey! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I think I will end up making all of those baby gifts. They're just too cute to choose.

I love your blog and all of the ladybugs! Glad to hear that you're feeling a little better. It's no fun being sick. Congrats on officially joining a new lab. Now the real fun begins!

I love Whad'ya Know. DH and I attended a live show back in 1999 ...and I was selected from the audience to play the quiz.
(It's in hour 2, though I'm pretty sure you've got much more important things to do than listening to my moment of glory....)

Anyway, I'm so glad you're feeling better. I can relate to the studying during nice weather, because I'm re-learning the semester of chemistry I took 25 years ago so that I can meet some pre-requisites for a graduate program I want to apply after a morning of that, I'm taking a break now..... Not exactly graduate studies, but studying, none-the-less.....
