bad hair cut for crackers
i'll fill in more later.
It was a great weekend. Friday after school I went cross country skiing with some teachers in my building/district. it was a blast! the weather was perfect and the snow was great. and it wasn't nearly as hard as i thought it would be. going uphill seemed sort of backwards to me since i'm a down hill skier, but even that wasn't bad. i know i got a workout but it was really just great fun! i took some photos but not many (i was trying to keep up with the front of the pack!)
oh my gosh though, going down hill in cross country skis is so hard! but so much fun. it was like learning to ski all over again. and i didn't fall once! after skiing we came home and my dad was in butte, so we went to butte to visit him and do some shopping. we came home and emptied out our bathroom because my dad was going to help me paint it on saturday! yay dad!
here's the final project. now, you may not know what it looked like before, but it had weird beige/khaki colored walls. so we painted the ceiling white and the walls this...well...we aren't sure what color it is. we started out with a spring green which was way too bright in our small bathroom. then i went to the store to by other paint and it ended up being torquios it was awful. so i went back to the paint store and we added some green and black and we ended up with this color. i really really dig it. dear husband hated it at first but now he is starting to like it. he told me he gets to pick a new shower curtain and it's going to be a transformer one (i hope he is just kidding!) but i love it, it's like a new bathroom but not nearly as much money! so thanks dad, you're the best!
THEN! on sunday i slept in til like 10, watched tv till 10:30 and cleaned my house. we had some friends come over for dinner tonight and it was such a blast. it's hard to find people to spend time with in anaconda. it's a very close knit (ehhhh--that's the closest to knitting content we're going to get today) community that it's hard to make friends if you aren't from here. so we had adena and scott come over. they're a really fantastic couple. they're quite worldly (adena is from new zealand) so it is nice to have other things to talk about. so it was a nice evening. i made cashew chicken and ice cream sundaes. oh, and roasted asparagus with seasame seeds. it was pretty delicious.
so all in all it was a busy weekend but lots of fun. now its time to study
