It has been quiet here for a couple weeks now and I apologize. Items to report:
#1: I’m finished with another class! The scripts of Medieval Manuscripts was a fascinating class at times, but by the end I was ready for it to be over. I am not sure if it will help practically in my career, but it was interesting to see more closely the development of manuscripts and books.
#2: Only a couple more weeks of classes, and I’m ready to be done. It’s been a good semester, but I’m done with the introductory classes.
#3: Brian and I are engaged! We took engagement pictures on Saturday at the Huntington. The weather and gardens was beautiful. We literally took pictures in every garden, the catcus garden, rose garden, Japanese garden, jungle garden, except for the Chinese garden. While the Chinese garden is beautiful in its own right, it is a new garden and many of the plants are still young.
Thanksgiving is this week and I’m looking forward to the chance to relax some. More than likely I will add things to the schedule, but it will be nice to not work. On Wednesday, the library will be open, but we’ll be decorating for Christmas. I’m excited and yes, Christmas music will be playing in the afternoon as is only appropriate for when one decorates any place for Christmas.
