My eyes are still acclimating to being back inside. I've been working on Latin outside this afternoon and, while the brightness made it occassionally difficult to concentrate, it was a very pleasant shade of scenery, and worked largely because we have the umbrella to shade the table. So far today: 8 pages of editing and 20 lines of Latin done, plus another 30 just starting to be sketched out. To my embarassment, I forget if I'm meant to be aiming for 50 or 100 lines. Definitely not more than that. But all in all, not too shabby a day academically, even if I haven't quite met my goals.

But I keep thinking of more errands to run, which is a problem: practice skating/falling down; go to grocery store; go over to Lindsay's to help her with computer mouse woes; do some mush write-up things.
