One Last Summer Outing

Mon 8/15/2011

The CCS Summer Workshops wrapped up last week... or at least the workshops I had to teach wrapped up. There is still an animation workshop going on this week.

Claire's birthday was on Saturday, so we headed over to the Green Mountain National Forest, where we camped over night and went on a few hikes and saw some waterfalls and the like. As ever, Claire took some photos which are now in her Flickr account, if you want to see some of what we saw.

Today it's pouring rain outside and it's blissfully in the 60s, for the first time in months. I know it will probably get hot again (ugh) but I'm taking this as the beginning of the end of summer. Summer is my least favorite season, so I'm glad it's wrapping up. And Autumn is my FAVORITE season, so I can't wait for it to begin! I've got just about three weeks before school starts up again, and A LOT of work to do in that time. Luckily, I'm going to be staying put from now until SPX.

Somehow, through the trip to Seattle and all the summer workshops, I am still ahead of my progress line for Basewood Chapter 5 (by a teeny tiny bit). So now it's time to dig deep and get that line back up ahead of schedule, where it belongs. I'm going to finish that book by the end of this year or die trying!

I'm working on a lot of cool stuff, but I can't share any of it right now. When I can, you'll hear about it! I hope everyone has a good rest-of-the summer. Stay cool!
