Out and about…
…and at home in Austin.
Hello, hello! I’m so ready to get back into weekly updates on this blog. We’ve been settling into Austin quite nicely, though I’ll confess that much of my time here thus far has been spent at my desk. It’s a good busy, a happy busy, as Paul and I get ready for the upcoming semester and try to get our names out there so that students can find us. When I work at home, Lucy sprawls out behind me or she sneaks into the closet and sleeps on my slippers. It’s pretty adorable.
When we sneak away from our desks, it’s often on bike. On Saturday, we headed down to the bike trail by the river and enjoyed the sites, like the one in the second photo from the top. Unfortunately, Paul got a flat tire on the trail, and we had to walk our bikes all the way home. Since then, he’s done a bunch of work on his bike and on mine, which is fantastic. I love dating someone who is so handy and caring.
If I head out of the house without Paul, I usually do so on foot. I’ll tell you more about my future running plans in my next post, but suffice to say that I’m taking advantage of the newfound stability in my life to start training again. I got two short runs in last week and I went out tonight for a longer run. To illustrate, I present the following:
Paul and I bought digitizer tablets for tutoring! They’re like electronic notebooks that you can use for sketching, drawing, or, in our case, lots of problem solving with students. I’m still getting used to the tablet, but I’ve decided to do my weekly work-out log on the tablet. I like its hand-drawn quality!
How is your week going, dear reader?
