My mood improved yesterday after posting. A hot, sweaty move followed by a nice, mellow picnic made for a pleasant day. It was really interesting to see the landscaping changes at DeCordova (the road now curves along behind the classroom buildings) and, of course, the new sculptures, plus the movement of some old sculptures. We didn't make it down by the pond, partly because of time and partly because of the threat of mosquitoes.
Role-playing starts up tonight after having three weeks off. I was getting used to having the extra time, so I'm a little resentful at having one day taken out of the week again. But it's loads of fun, so I'm sure I'll get back in the swing of things.
