I know it’s been too long since I last updated anyone (except my folks) and please accept my sincere apologies. Unfortunately, I have been so ridiculously busy that I haven’t been able to sit down and process/write out everything. I will set to that more come mid-December when I am free for the semester. Since I have roughly 200 pages of various articles to read and 30 pages to write between now and then, I’m going to make this very short.
I had 2 guests stay for 10 days, which is a long time for guests. 🙂 We went to Inverness, Aberfeldy whisky distillery, and I got to drive on the wrong side of the road/car (it was odd). I currently have 2 new guests (the others left about a week ago) and they’re very understanding of how busy I am, so they’ve been completely self-sufficient and haven’t needed me to show them around at all (I wish I had time but I don’t). The weather has been surprisingly nice – sunny most days or overcast. Some rain but not a lot. And not very cold, either, ranging from 40-50 degrees most days (though Inverness was 32 degrees…and I forgot my jacket). The Christmas markets (all German style markets) opened yesterday and run through New Years. They even have carnival rides and ice skating rinks, etc. This really is a wonderful city.
I’m so busy that I even stopped shaving a month ago to save time. Haha! I actually did stop shaving and I notice that when it is windy, my face is significantly warmer, so I’m keeping it for a bit.
