The other day I got to go to my 'sister's' house with some friends and a few other people. I think there were 11 of us total. She had sent me pictures of what things looked like and I couldn't wait to go. The wild flowers are everywhere and the weather is just perfect.
|We take this picture every time I go to her house.|
We then went wandering around town for maybe 2 hours. We walked down to the lake, to her elementary school, through tea fields, and back to her house where we had dinner before heading back to town.
It was a lovely day. I did get a massive sunburn though, like beautiful dark red on my chest. First sunburn of the year: check. Lesson learned: at 6,000 ft, in the bright sun, sunscreen is a must and not just a good idea.
And then today I decided I needed to leave my apartment. I hadn't left in 2 days. I know that sounds depressing/crazy/pathetic/lazy. It is. So I got out this morning. The town is alive again! Partially. Half of the stores are open, people are out, it feels so good. The new grocery store in town is open. There's one just like it but it's further away and up a lot of hills. This one is much closer, brand new, and beautiful! I rode past it and then decided to turn around and check it out. I may have teared up like I was stepping into Target for the first time in 7 months. I'm so happy! I didn't spend too much time checking out what they had. I sort of assume it's the same as the other one, which I'm somewhat familiar with. I rushed myself mostly out of fear that my beautiful fashion bike would get stolen. I was so excited that I almost didn't care if it got stolen though. Haha. It's fine though. The only downside to today is that my favorite milk tea place wasn't open :(
Lesson planning and movies are on my list for today. I'm finding my little things to keep this place beautiful to me, and it's never very hard to do that. Two more weeks until school starts again and my lesson planning should be 100% done by that time! Feeling good!!!
Happy Saturday everyone :)
