To my eyes, this was a very pleasing, seasonal effort today. The pants actually have more very dark crimson as part of their pattern than is readily apparent here, so they worked nicely with the tie.
And it is amazing what you can get accomplished in three or four hour chunks when no one bothers you. On track to have all three courses for next semester, two new and one revamped, well ahead of Christmas, which will allow me to forget about work for a couple of weeks or so.
I enjoy what I do, for the most part, but time away spent doing other things will be refreshing.
