Signing off for summer vacation
It’s been a great year – we have lots of successes across the faculty to celebrate. But it has also been a lot of work, and I am looking forward to my summer vacation as I’m sure many of you are too. As I have done in the past, after 48 weeks of blog writing, I’m going to take a break until September.
We don’t have any major plans for this year’s vacation; I will spend some time in Kingston decompressing, some time in Toronto visiting with friends and family, and Cheryl and I plan to take my mother on a road trip to our favourite Inn which is an old historic arts & crafts inn called the Roycroft. We will also spend some time with Cheryl’s dad who lives in Cambridge, and who, unfortunately, is ill.
We will also be spending lots of time with our new puppy Sophie who is now seven months old. Shortly after I introduced her here on the blog, I nicknamed her Taz (short for Tazmanian Devil) but I must admit that she’s growing on me and her Taz-like episodes seem to be decreasing in frequency.
I hope to throw in a little golf and lot of sunshine, and I am especially looking forward to a few weeks of not being glued to my cell phone or my computer.
There are so many great things going on in the faculty, and I am looking forward to charging up my batteries for the busy fall ahead.
I would love to hear what your summer plans are, so please let me know by commenting on the blog. Or better yet, drop by the Macklem House…I won’t be there, but my door will be open and some of our wonderful staff will be there to say hello.
