A little later than usual because we had an appointment at Purchase to finalize the details of Crisp's medical leave. But it's done, she is still enrolled but will be marked as withdrawn from all her classes, and if all goes well she can try again next fall with more knowledge of what she's going into and another year of life experience behind her :)

Cool but still, 53F and getting dark.

Frustrations in Rome.

No wind after yesterday's blusteriness, but still feels warmer than the 64F it is because of the humidity.

Sunday afternoon

An uneventful morning at church, we commissioned the new confirmation class and had our first class with them, and they seem to be a feisty bunch :)

Cool and very pleasant, 67F and sunny.

Not chosen a new book yet, so am listening to a podcast about Mavic Pro drones... for a reason that will soon enough become clear ;)
