Summer has been off to a wonderful start! The weather is still lacking however. My friend Alissa and I are pen pals during our 3 month break, and I got my first letter from her summarily after returning from the choir tour. Tonight I helped make dinner with my mother, a task I enjoy very much. I realize I have a slight addiction of taking pictures of any and all food...I simply can't help it. Fresh vegetables and their colors, not to mention their taste, are just so beautiful! And fresh vegetables are all we use, by the way. We get a box from a local farmer once a week that is filled with all the "in-season goodies." (Strawberries, carrots, lettuce, onions...and more).
My family is coming into town today and tomorrow because Nathan is graduating college on Saturday! We are so excited to celebrate this with him, and it will be good to have a busy house once again. Still missing the love, of course, but I have been lucky enough to see his face on skype a couple times since the last post. He is as handsome as ever, and Indonesia has been treating him quite well. It will be nice to see him in person once again, although the countdown still continues. (9 weeks to go!)
8 and a half if you want to get technical.....
