Still reviewing grants. Freaked while I'm reviewing grants because I'm not working on the one I'm writing; freaked while I'm writing my grant because I'm not working on the ones that I need to review.
A good potential postdoctoral candidate contacted me today, in response to the advertised position. Very promising. I'm optimistic. The lab seems to think the person looks good as well. Even more promising.
Roses are everywhere. Fall-blooming salvias are beginning to show a little color; I'm impatient for their display, they are my favorite. Cabbages and brocolli and collards and lettuces and onions and garlic still not planted - the beds still need to be prepared. Yes, I'm behind on life.
