Weekend Wanderings: Catching Up

The weekends are never as productive as I hope they will be, but I did get a fair amount accomplished this weekend, which was nice.  First up was a vet trip for VW on Thursday:

Kitty hates her carrier.
 She hates her carrier, hates going to the doctor, but was generally a champ about it.  And now, she's generally a champ about taking her medicine everyday.  She had a little cold, but it seems to be going away, now that she's on her kitty z-pack.

On Friday, I saw Anne Enright read at KGB with my very talented friends Mary Block and Sophie Herron.  A really strong reading overall, and I've never read any of Enright's work, so it was nice to have an introduction to it.  A group of us headed over to Stillwater for drinks (and a not-so-great po' boy) afterward, and I was reminded of just how much I love the people in my program.  They're all brilliant, but more than that, they're all so friendly.  I can't say how much I appreciate that.

Anne Enright & some very bright light
Saturday and Sunday were all about work.  On Saturday, we went to our new favorite coffee-shop, Lenox Coffee, and I wrote my little heart out on fellowship applications and poems.  We ate dinner at our new favorite pizza place, Bettalona, and did laundry until midnight.  Oh, and I handmade peanut butter! (More on that to come later this week.)

Lenox Coffee - so great
Sunday was all about grocery shopping, a quick trip to the Studio Museum, and more fellowship application work.  Oh, graduate school.  I love you so much.
