I loved pottery the most today.

Weekend teaser of a hike.
The first half of Crow Pass.


Anyway, it was freaking beautiful, and I am going to do the whole trip in a weekend or two.
I am feeling absolutely no pressure from school right now.
Big agenda: finding oils for soap, making henna, tennis matches, some fancy cooking this week, and getting up early to work out in the morning.

I'm sorry, but I'm in a Good Mood.

last pieces

Mmmm. Summer.
Buttermilk lemon cookies, playing around with my camera's macro setting, tennis matches, the olympics, napping in the sun, fresh fruit for breakfast, last-minute summer reading, loving the Office, incredibly puffy clouds...

Hello! It's August! And with only a week and a half left of summer vacation! I haven't felt like posting in a while, but here's a quick recap of the ~last month:
-lived in Palmer with friends-went sailing in Whittier-canoed and camped at Eklutna
-got baley certified with friends
-saw Wilco in concert-baked Oatmeal bread, blueberry crumble, oatmeal-yogurt cake with orange cream frosting
-started tennis season, am girls varsity #3
-taught a yoga class
-have seen good movies, spent days reading, hiked with A, been lifting weights in the A.M., watched the Olympics with 4 very excitable swimmers, had conversations with a French family at a dinner party (in French), crocheted a hat, registered for my senior year and got a good schedule, gone to a Conscious Living festival and gotten a henna tattoo for free from a woman named Snow, gone running in pretty places, and cleaned houses for money.

And now I need to finish (start, actually) the summer reading, go climbing with friends, hike Crow Pass, go sailing again, mix this henna that I bought, eat some Thai food because I am craving it, and summer will be complete.
