a few things

It's not all demolition around here.
first flowers of the season from the garden...

unearthed a huge wasp next under the old siding,

and how am I supposed to get anything done with this cutie hanging outside my window?
I'm four-fifths of the way through my qualifying exams.  I haven't died yet, but it is entirely possible that I may, before this craziness is over.  

Meanwhile, I leave for China in 3 weeks and so far all I know how to say in Mandarin is "I don't speak Mandarin".  Useful, but not nearly as useful as being able to ask for directions.

I feel like I should see you again before you leave for China.. it is so far away..and you are just my little girl...

seriously, I wish I could see you again to wish you a proper bon voyage. I was in a sea of post graduation tidal wave of feelings and confusion. And, we said goodbye in a parking lot!
