Bogged down in grading, bathroom remodel almost done, attended the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Run last weekend. M ran it, I couldn't because of a foot injury. *sigh* Fall came in fast and furious here, one moment it was September and worrying about October coming, I blinked and we're already in the middle of November. I tell myself I will sit still when I get old, but I'm not sure I'll be able to even then. :-) Until I can get on top of all this grading, here's a lovely tree near our house blazing in its Fall colors.

I told CK about the skeletons we added that we positioned to look as if they were climbing up the side of the house. I didn't get any pictures, but M did, so I snagged this one from her FB page.
We're also in the midst of a major bathroom remodel. Yes, we are gluttons for punishment. I will post on that as soon as the dust settles. We had the whole bathroom gutted down to the studs and expanded a bit. After 3 weeks of destruction, re-construction, wiring, plumbing and painting, we are finally at the tiling stage today. I'm really hoping it all gets done this week. Well, mountains of grading awaits me. Later!
My grading stress is currently somewhere between these two places.
Our beautiful old home is an architectural style known as American Foursquare. These houses were popular from the 1890s to about...
There's just no hope for this, with school bearing down on me and no end in sight to the legal work, I'm just going to have to throw...
