This past week was an interesting one. On Tuesday, I co-presented with my friend Jessi for 2 presentations at our Student Life Spring Retreat. Both presentations revolved around social media. Session 1 was more Q&A style and the other one was about blogging & Twitter. It was fun to do some knowledge sharing with colleagues in my division. Wednesday marked the arrival of my sister. She was visiting for a couple days since she was going to be attending a library conference in Superior on Friday. Thursday was probably the big day of the week. I had my first major dental work done. I’ve had to endure a few fillings before, but nothing major. The week before I went on vacation, half of a tooth broke off. I was in no pain (that happened the week before when I probably actually cracked the sucker) so I held off actually going to the dentist until after my vacation. So Thursday, I had a root canal, a screw (yes an actual metal screw) put in where the nerve had been, and a tooth-like contraption put in place of where the tooth had been. It’s sore (and will be for a while), but not unbearable. However, I can’t chew on that side of my mouth and I’ve just been eating soft foods. Do you know how hard it is to figure out soft foods to eat? It’s been a bit of a challenge. So far, it’s been yogurt, smoothies, soup, oatmeal, soft fruits, ice cream, and some pasta. If you have any other food ideas, please let me know. It’s been a challenge to incorporate veggies (spinach is going into the smoothies) as they are rather hard.
Anyway, enough with my dental saga (it’s not actually over though as I have 2 more visits scheduled to put a crown on the tooth). Julie was here until Saturday and we definitely enjoyed the time to hang out. We rented Identity Thief – funny, but not what we expected. We also enjoyed the nice weather on Saturday with a trip down to the Lakewalk. On Saturday evening, I also ventured down to the lake front to enjoy the nice weather. Good thing I did that as today is chilly and rainy. Here are some photos from my jaunts down to the lake front.
I think it’s safe to say that I fall in love with Duluth and Lake Superior a little more every day (even the days when it’s snowy, foggy, or rainy). All photos in today’s post were taking with my iPhone.
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!
