First Month

We've now spent a full month in our new home. I've started my new job. I still feel somewhat out of place - not quite settled in the apartment, not quite settled in the office. The new students are good, though - eager, respectful, hard-working, responsive... I like them quite a bit so far. I don't know that they'll see the best of me this semester, as I figure out all the ins and outs of the new workplace. I'll try my best, though.

I continue to enjoy the beachy vibe. We've spent part of every day by the water. I guess that's what happens when you spend over a decade in the desert - you learn to treasure water. I especially like wading in the ocean. During my time at UCLA I was too busy to spend much time at the beach; I can only recall a handful of visits. I think I'm making up for it now. Not that I'm not busy, but I am scheduling in beach time. Very important.

I hope y'all are having a great holiday weekend!

A lovely weekend, thanks!

And I hope the process of settling in is a smooth one!

Yay for lovely weekends! I have sand in my shoes. ;)

More settling in occurred this afternoon. I can see more of our books now, which soothes me.

There's nothing quite like San Diego beach wading in the fall!!!

Yeah, it ain't so bad, I'll admit. ;)
