I had shelves across 3 walls. Each was filled with different picture frames which held various photos of friends and family. I really liked my room there. I have had absolutely nothing on the walls in this apartment for over 2 years. I think it's time to change that. This time, though, a lot of my frames would contain favorite photos I've taken of my woods and creek--home away from home. Yay projectsphone covers:)
I went to my first tractor pulls of the summer last night and tonight. I actually didn't intend to go to either. Then I was only going to go to one. But I'm trying not to be a hermit, which is super easy right now since I have no vehicle and it's summer break and all... so I ended up going both nights. Oh, and I had the interesting privilege of seeing "tractor square dancing". I wish I'd taken my camera so I could video it; quite entertaining embroidery patch!
Through school I have an iPad. It's definitely grown on me, but I'm not obsessed/attached to it or anything (like many of my students who were torn because they couldn't take them home over the summer!). I mainly just use it for my normal Internet stuff. But I do have a couple apps I use regularly that are just for fun. One is Words with Friends. Oh my, I so enjoy word games. I set another record for points on a single word the other day-- 129 points for the word "jazzer" :) My previous record was 117 ("prized"). But those were just lucky plays. I'm not like super spectacular or anything nu skin group.
Speaking of shelves and words and stuff... I have been slacking a little on my reading but am still doing pretty well overall (considering all the other stuff I'm doing that kind of takes priority right now). I just started reading The Wind is My Mother by Bear Heart & Molly Larkin, and I also started The Alhambra by Washington Irving. I'm also slowly reading through some Emerson poetry. These days, cleaning, organizing, and reading take up the majority of my days; and I'm trying to enjoy it all while it lasts (which won't be too much longer). I would be cleaning and organizing even more because I'm actually enjoying it (which is...new and refreshing), but my back likes to pretend that it's 80 years old instead of 27...lame... so I bust my butt until my back gets too bad, then I read or check mail or...oh, write blog entriesnuskin hk;) Oh, and sometimes I cook. But mostly I don't because I hate cooking... but occasionally I kind of get into a cooking mood and make something
