This May Day marks my last lecture of the semester. It is on kidney transplants. It's kind of boring, but has to be done. After that it is a couple of tutoring sessions, a potluck, a couple of exams, and boom! We're done. Yay!
Yesterday was the challenging day I expected it to be, work-wise, but that's better than an unexpectedly challenging day. I am hoping to skip out after lecture today and have a relaxing afternoon. One that doesn't involve taking pictures. I am weary of editing pictures.
I had a big artichoke for dinner last night. It was substantial, and delicious. The past few times I made an artichoke, I steamed it in my Instant Pot, but this time I steamed it in my old Revere Ware pot on the stove. It just works out better that way. In the meantime, Malida steamed some yams and beets in the Instant Pot, so it all worked out.
I took the first big step toward preparing to do the 5K next year, and thought about getting some new shoes. I didn't actually get the shoes, and I didn't really think too hard about it either, but I did think about it, and that's a step in the right direction. I got my current shoes just after I busted my toe and had all the problems with plantar fasciitis, so they are kind of wide, and don't fit as well as I would like, now that my foot is behaving. So I'll think about it some more.
One of the last minute additions to my portfolio. I also had this printed up, and it turned out great.
