I stepped away from the blog to accomplish some writing. In the 10 days since I left my last post, I
- Wrote a column for the Courant (unlike my usual stuff, it’s light and fluffy, like nougat)
- Wrote a column for CT Health Investigative Team, but that’s not posted yet
- Wrote an article for WNPR, also not posted yet.
- Wrote 50 pages for my book on Frog Hollow, my favorite Hartford neighborhood.
Don’t be too impressed. There’s 50 pages, and then there’s 50 pages. I didn’t say they were good, but I got into a routine that included lots of coffee and the scattered free moment when I took one hike with my husband, and another hike with my buddy, visited the beluga whales with the grandbabies (see above), and rode my bike more than I wanted. It was like running a marathon and I did it and I’m glad I did, but I’m almost ready to get back into the nutty school routine, but only until the end of the semester, at which point I’m going to take a loooong car ride.
Onward. I hope your days were equally fabulous.
