Curses. Foiled again.


Really, I just wanted to use that post title. (Because I have these photos of foil.)

All the same time, I am feeling cranky, and somewhat thwarted in my efforts to be productive. I have too many pokers in the fire. I have 2 conferences coming up next month for which I am involved in 4 total presentations (3 posters and 1 talk). Two of the posters are on my own research, and the others on the group research, in which I am also heavily involved. Plus I am working on finishing up a paid annotation gig. You’d think this would make me too busy to agree to various school volunteer things, but I am a sucker, so I helped out at the book fair at the school today, and am also going on a field trip with Theo’s class next week. In any case, I have a lot of work to do tonight, so can’t spare the time to work on the post I’ve been hoping to write.

But I am happy to have this excuse to share these photos I took with my macro lens set up. (Seriously, I think I may milk a couple dozen posts out of the many photos I managed to take wandering around my mother-in-law’s house and garden while the kids played.)

  1. Good luck getting everything done! And thanks for sharing these fun foil photos! (that was fun to say! I love alliteration.)
    Is “too many pokers in the fire” the opposite of “too many cooks in the kitchen”?

  2. Lots on your plate indeed. At least you will be able to take awesome photos while you’re on the road.

  3. Whew. Good luck with everything that’s on your plate — I think you need a bigger plate! :|
