Our friend Katherine gave birth to a baby girl (Morgan) today at 12:30pm. Photos soon to come!
These high temperatures are a killer! We have been waiting until early evening to venture out on our bicycles. Last night we tried a southern cooking restaurant. The menu included friend catfish, collard greens and cornbread. Pretty fantastic. And a bike ride home to work it off:)
This has been such an interesting phase of transition for us. We have to work daily to remind ourselves to enjoy it and all the abundant possibilities before us. Scott passed the equivalency exam and has now been scheduled for an interview (ie: the last step) with the electrician's union. He is quite exicted and we both have our fingers crossed for him.
Today was another day of volunteering at the library. The kids were wonderful today and very excited to tell me what their favorite books have been this summer. One little girl told me that she liked my tattoo. The tattoo was finished a few days ago by a beautiful tattoo artist here who worked for massage trade. It's awfully nice now to have a skill with which to barter. Scott took this photo of me with my guitar and our blue wall:)
Things continue to roll gently forward here. We have a few escapes to the coast planned, including a dog friendly bungalow we are renting for our two year anniversary. It will be lovely to sit on the pacific ocean and read some cheesy fiction novel that doesn't hurt my brain. Ahhhhh, vacation. However short it is.
