My 3 quart pot handle broke about six months ago, and I finally got around to getting a new pot. It has a pour spout and strainer lid - great for straining my morning chai. BTW, I really did take this even though I am in the picture. I have been using the tripod and self-timer more lately.

We have had an amazingly unusual number of box elder beetles this years. They were all over our windows this day. I had to snap a shot (and isn't it a beautiful and sunny fall day?).
I came home, and the whole house smelled like cinnamon! George had made snickerdoodles! One summer, I made these everyday, and I would do cooking demonstrations for the younger kids in the neighborhood.

This is where I write. I just finished 1 Kings 3 & 4. Love to look out my window and drink chai. I got the tripod out to document something I spend 10-15 hours a week doing.
I am taking this Saturday to work (meditating in Scripture and writing really isn't work though) ahead since I am gone for eight days in November.

I have never been to free lunch before, but Elizabeth told me there were Indonesians I would probably love to chat with, and I did love it!

About three nights ago, I decided to just GO FOR IT and finish this book that I have been struggling through for the last six weeks! I stayed up late and plowed through! I just had to take this self-portrait! LOL! I have ONE more book and I am done with my eight year Well-Educated Mind journey!!!!
INTO OSU offers undergraduate and graduate Pathway programs designed for international students who want to earn a degree in the US but may have slightly lower grade point averages, test scores, or English language proficiency. A range of year round and intensive English language programs are also available through INTO OSU, for students who wish to become confident English speakers through study at a US university.
Driving home from Ginny and Lorraine's in my big diesel truck. There is something very fun about driving a stick! (By the way, I missed a few pictures this week. So, I have two for today).
Finally, I was able to get together with Shandra, a trainer at the Timberhill Athletic Club. She evaluated my overall condition so I could make sure I was well-prepared for the Surfin' Safari in November. She noticed how I compensate because of all the weird abnormalities with my body! It was great and helpful, and I loved the color of these blocks she used in the evaluation!
