Today I wrote a letter of recommendation for one of my students. It sure does take a long time! I'm still going to Jon look over it for organization before I print it out on letterhead. This particular student really was one of my best so it wasn't hard to write. I'm kind of flattered that I was asked, but really there wasn't anyone else from this class who could have written her a letter. This makes me feel like I'm on my way to being a professor :-)
In other news, I spent several hours today listening to bluegrass while mending Jon's jeans and attempting mostly unsuccessfully to unravel an old wool sweater to darn some socks. Better get back to it!
