warm and sunny

I'm excited to bring out the patio furniture. Wait I don't have any - yet. But I am excited about be able to sit out in the sun and enjoy a nice warm day. It's 27degrees in Nairobi right now. I wonder if it will stay warm for my arrival. Hopefully I won't bring this bad weather along with me. it's actually a beautiful day today. So I can't go and be jinxing it. I think I'll go for a nice long walk tonight :)

Pottery class finished


Today was my last pottery class. It was so much fun - i'm sad that it was over. I want to take it again. So hopefully when I get back from my little adventure I'll be able to sign up and take it again. Here's my box that took me absolutely forever to make it it was so wonderful and I'm happy with the way that it turned out. I got a few more pieces back today. It's nice just to experiment. I don't take it too seriously. :)

changing seasons

I'm pretty lucky. I don't have any allergies. When I talk with people who do have allergies I always do think about how blessed I am. I don't have to worry about air machines, dehumidifiers, getting sick, watching what I eat or touch, seasons, nothing. My eyes get itchy and my skin freaks out when the seasons change a bit but it's nothing that I can't handle. I'm so excited about spring. I don't know if it was just me but I feel like this winter was particularly brutal. But I'm not sure.

travel backpack


So this weekend I went down to the Mountain Equipment Co-op and bought a travelback (see photo) a mattress pad, water bottle and some water purification tablets! I still need to much more for my trip thought. I was writing a list out yesterday - it's just a lot of little things like batteries, soap, journal, watch, etc. etc. a lot of things that any normal person would have but that i'm too cheap to buy. I don't even have a bathing suit (well i have one but it doesn't fit me it's like 6 years old). So anyways. My list that never ends! :) So exciting though :)

small technology

I've been looking online for some stuff for my trip. Trying to price out some things. I was looking for a new SD card for my camera so that I'll be able to take LOTS of photos and video. I came across this new micro sd. I'm guessing they are for the newer style cameras and phones! If I had something that small I'd probably use it. Soon we'll have computer that fit in the palm of our hands.. wait a second....

and here it is....!


My very first pottery piece!
I made a coil platter. It's so cute. When I first started making it I didn't like the way it was turning out. But I'm finding that with most of my pottery things that I can't just right away - I need to keep working at it and now! my final product! I really like the way that it turned out. It's very sweet. I have a few pieces that I'm going to finish up next week so I will have a few more little things! So exciting!

I love the office

I just finished watching season four of "The Office". I love it so much it's so funny. I liked the episode where Jan got some sort of lawyer like these guys:Lexington personal injury lawyer and tried to sue Dunder Mifflin. It was crazy. I think my fav. episode is "The dinner party". Too funny. I don't want a lot of shows but I l-o-v-e that one. I also like "The Amazing Race." I forgot to watch it last week and i remembered yesterday so I will watch it tonight :)

Camping


Last weekend Troy, Evan and myself went camping. It was cold - very cold but fun~ I plan on doing a lot of camping this summer! I am buying some new equipment for my trip and it will be stuff that I'll be able to use while camping as well. I took this picture while walking back to the camp last weekend.
I have my pottery class today! I'm very excited! I'm going to do some cleaning and painting too!
