Finished up some school business via email. The faculty search is still unresolved: a verbal offer was made to the candidate on Friday and he asked for some time to consider it. I have not heard an update yet.
There is, of course, the incident in Manchester. Time will tell what damage is to be done in the name of security and "standing up" for "our" values. Who knows how long healing for the victims and for those left behind will take.
My husband works a long day on Tuesdays. I am therefore on my own for the large meal of the day, which is either lunch or dinner, depending on my preference. This past day I decided to go to the Bosnian restaurant in Hartford. I had a pljeskavica, which was pretty great.
This past day I also started to work through a counterpoint text I will need to know for one of my classes in the fall.
