Did you know that for $3.25, one can purchase a picnic cooler, popcorn popper, picnic plates, cute serving plates and bowl, dish-drying rack, a glass canister, and a book? Garage sales are good things.

Direction: West

Do these pictures look like the (yet far as I know) cornfields of IA?

No? That is because they are not!

The one on the bottom is cherry trees blossoming. The bottom white stuff reflects light and heat and the netting protects them from wind and birds. (Thanks for the info, Dana!)

The one on the top trees. I don't know what they are.

The location of these mysterious and unusual (to an Iowa girl) crops is....near Sunnyside, WA, where I am excited to have accepted a teaching position! In keeping with tradition, my room celebrated with fresh pineapple. It is fortunate for the sake of the pineapple that I accepted, because my roommate had actually bought it (without my knowledge) before I was even back.

...and soon things will be flowering!

I hope you enjoy these beautiful flowers. I am enjoying spring weather through photography, walking outside, and Christmas tree burning/ bonfires, even while being busy with student teaching, job search, and wedding planning. Not to mention my attempts at cooking for my roommates (thank you for the lasagna, LVW). I plan to fly to Sunnyside this week to see the school. I am excited for this and hope that this or my other current possibility works out and is a good fit for me.
