Moose tracks! But no actual moose sightings (fortunately and unfortunately--it's a strange desire to want to run into an animal like that, like I want to see an alligator in real life in Florida so I'm constantly looking but that doesn't make it a wise action by any means...)
|The fogs and breath as we hiked through the woods.|
It was a brisk night as we started off--of course it just got colder but we were trekking so we continually stripped our top layers off. Only when we stopped for our celebratory "we're half way/great job from Sterling" chocolate chip cookies did anybody put their layers back on.
Oh, and last week Wednesday was my first day/training day at my work program job at the coffee shop.
I decided I want to try to figure out those coolio coffee leaves and hearts that those "fancy" baristas do at those "fancy" boutique coffee shops:
Still cool though!
And I just wanted to share these beautiful colors outside my bedroom window.

I think the best part is that Mom came for parent's weekend and we did none of the scheduled events Sterling put together. Except felted soap making which was, interesting to say the least. But fun! Look at mine!
In Fiber Arts class, I've successfully cleaned and carded my very first batch of super knarly dirty wool.
And the best part; I chopped a tree down all by myself! And it wasn't some wussy little girl "this is my first time" tree. Hell no, I took this one down! With nothing but my very own axe!!!
But pushing my tree over, watching it land as gracefully as it did was...
Thank you tree for giving your life.
