Today is the vernal equinox – the days will now be longer than the nights in the northern hemisphere. Hooray! And I think I’ve finally adjusted to this ridiculously early daylight savings time thing. The combination of traveling and time changing was difficult this year, though it did provide more light for driving around in the evenings.
Today is also Sweater Day, in honor of Mister Rogers’ eightieth birthday. We miss you, oh icon of our childhoods! I aspire to have the cardigan I’m knitting done for next year (by which I mean it will be ready to wear 2012, of course).
Today it is not raining. Hopefully it is not raining everywhere, and we all finally get a chance to dry out.
Today I am working on a highly interesting science project that could also be modern art.
Today I will work, have dinner with Nick, and go to an SCA meeting that I do not have to run, having stepped down as president after 5 years. Not running SCA meetings means that I can knit during them. Apparently I should not be allowed out in public unescorted, though, as this past weekend I was coaxed into taking the regional administrator job (and it took embarrassingly little coaxing). I seem to need someone to follow me around and say no. (Apprentice! Where were you???)
Today I learned of a new collection of medieval manuscripts online, organized and hosted by the University of South Carolina. Not only can you view the manuscript pages (distressingly, the collection seems to have many single pages presumably chopped from longer works), but you can listen to the USC chorus performing music from the manuscripts. How cool is that?
