Productive Weekend

My study still looks like a hurricane blew through it, but I did actually make a lot of progress this weekend. Most significantly for folks here, I actually finished writing the travelogue of my May 2009 trip to France and Switzerland. I have a few chores to do related to that (like putting away files and finishing labeling hard copies of photos) before I move on to the next one, but I am hoping to get through the Kiribati and Solomon Islands piece within a month.

I also made some progress on my annual desk drawer clean-out. I need to finish that before I can really declutter my study, as some of the things that are cluttering the study need to be filed in the desk drawer.

Aside from that, I went to see Huun-Huur-Tu (a Tuvan throat singing group) last night at the Rosslyn Spectrum. The first half of the concert seemed a bit monotonous to me, but I really enjoyed the second half.

I also made it to a particularly good zumba class on Saturday and to knitting group today. And now I am going to finish the Sunday Post (Magazine section and comics still to go) and if that goes quickly enough read more of Alexander McCall Smith's Corduroy Mansions.
