I was laying in bed answering an e-mail this morning when I noticed the cat was staring intently out the window. It took me awhile to see that she was focused on something. I think it had something to do with the line "Next we're going to ask you to be our pregnancy surrogate" from the end of the e-mail to which I was replying that had my attention. When I finally looked up, I saw that the cat was watching a pair of large, round birds which I hadn't seen before. I don't know what kind they are, but they had beautiful tail feathers. PPBob yelled at me when I moved up to the window to get a picture and they flew away. Maybe they'll come back tomorrow.
On a sad note, it appears the foxes are gone. I've been down to the river the last two evenings and didn't see them. They weren't there when I went for a run this morning either. I hope they're safe.
The interview committee is meeting from 9:00 to 10:30 this morning to give the dean and the exec vp input on hiring for the new position. They are hopeful they'll have a decision tomorrow. Though I want the job, I'm still fine with whatever they decide. I'm just ready to know.
I'm working at home today, which, of course, means I'll have periods of productivity interspersed throughout games of fetch with the cat, staring out the window with the cat, projects in the kitchen, and quite possibly a nap. It's a rough life.
