The end of my sabbatical!

My sabbatical projects are almost finished. I've got one more chapter to finish and a bit more polishing on my manuscript before I send it off to the readers. Then I will start thinking about the fall teaching.

It has been a productive sabbatical. I polished and sent out an article for publication in the Dublin Seminar Proceedings, wrote a review of a new book for Vermont History, and wrote six chapters for my book. The most interesting thing was my experience with filming a TV interview. I don't know how that came out, but we'll see this fall.

Finally, my major sabbatical project, Max, has been coming along nicely. He's house-broken and knows how to sit and lay down. He understands when I ask him if he wants to go for a walk; he gets excited and jumps around so much I now have to spell w-a-l-k if I want to make it to the door before him. Unfortunately he does not seem to want to learn what "Come, Max!" means, so he has to be restrained when outside, but we're working on that. I

I am getting excited about the fall. The new curriculum should be interesting and I have missed teaching this spring! But, I don't want to get ahead of myself, I still have a bit of summer to enjoy..............
