Yesterday was filled with tasks and today will be the same. In the morning we went to Sorgs to get supplies for Thanksgiving. We came home and I worked on my paper which is due on Tuesday. We spent some time together watching tv and having lunch before we went to Ken’s brother’s retirement party. Then it was back home to have supper and watch more dvr stuff while I crocheted. I finished watching The White Queen series last night while I worked on another scarf for Vicki (one she is giving away).
In the mail yesterday I got a package from Circle Magazine and was please to find a poem and essay were published of mine published inside. The art on the page by Sophia Gill is beautiful. She made a stylized tree which fits the poem and the essay beautifully.
Today will be a homework day. Ken will go to the grocery store to gather up the last of the Thanksgiving items we need. I will work on finishing my paper, reading two chapters, diagramming four or five sentences, doing an exercise, and starting the research on my final project.
I only have three weeks left (I think) and I’m ready to be done. Once classes are done I will have earned my second degree. I’m not walking for graduation – it doesn’t seem worthwhile to me to sit through a ceremony which will have no relevance for me. I’m not going out to conquer the world with my degree. I got this degree for me – to improve my writing and editing skills.
