Beautiful weather

The weather is just about perfect today: warm, but not too hot, blue skies, fluffy clouds, mild wind. I spent the morning working on Latin: a bit more work on my own, and then going in to campus to meet up to read through what we'd worked on. Cat made it through much more than I did, but that's the way it should be: she's passed the PhD latin exam and I have a long way to go before I will. I'm now feeling nicely virtuous for having worked on lating again.

If I'm capable of concentrating today, I may be able to finish off editing the paper. I won't be really, truly, properly finished, but the spelling and grammar errors should be gone, and most of the too-short sentences fleshed out into greater coherence. But I won't be really, truly, properly finished until I work back through all the odd sentences (perhaps 8 of them) wherein I couldn't quite work out what I'd been thinking when I wrote them, but which obviously are trying to make some sort of interesting point. These are the sort of sentences I might need to sit down and reread some other material to decipher. So, at last, there's a real chance I'll be able to call the whole thing done by tomorrow!
