I bought a few other plants -- a $15 forsythia bush, because my parents had a whole row of them, and it made me sentimental, and a $60 Japanese maple, both of which were half-off the original price. I'm hoping the maple will live happily on our sheltered balcony. Fingers crossed.
Need to go back to grading now, but brief recap: Tuesday evening play, mixed. Great in points, overall didn't quite cohere for me. Wednesday got caught up on stuff, made up a syllabus for spec fic class, went to curriculum committee and had it approved. Wed eve, went to reading by one of my students for her first book! Took her out for a margarita afterwards. :-) And that's it.
Today, teach all day.
