I studied on the porch in back of Owen Hall this afternoon. It didn't last! I was distracted by the pretty flowers and the distinct nibbling of treats by the cute critters slowly mingling through the trees. I must admit it was a nice change of scenery, but an unwelcome distraction from work. This first week has proved to be more rigorous than expected. There is not a minute to spare for interruptions, but a few seconds to take pictures can’t hurt!
