Very glad to be back home. I was in Ottawa for a slightly quixotic enterprise, but really I must get back to work; I have several pressing things I need to finish, including the wretched Austen essay, which I didn't have time to tackle again before I left early Saturday morning(it is actually much more relaxing for me to work than to do almost anything else!). This gives a bit of the flavor of our day on Sunday.

3-D jello sculpture! (Apparently it's a thing.)
