Goodbye Summer

I was inspired by Heather's post to mourn the end of summer. Actually I am flat-out copying her, and actually I am excited for school to start.

But that does mean the end of...

  • taking as long as I want to grocery shop.
  • weekly organizing fests (truly moving in takes a while).
  • Cooking. Actually I may take it up again in a week or so but for now I plan to subsist on meals I froze in early August, sandwiches, Nate's cooking, and last but not least, Corn Dogs.
  • getting the mail ASAIGH (as soon as it gets here)
I will post about the beginning of school soon!

(I am posting this picture as I sit on the edge of my "garden" as a test. My garden has trouble growing beans but the wireless internet works just fine.)

Everything that has breath!

I started decorating my office today.
I felt that my friends who majored in elementary education would be proud of me.
And I used the border that Catherine's mom gave me for graduation!

Funny Farm!

Have you ever had someone call you and you weren't sure if it was a prank call or not? (Feel free to share your stories in a comment.)

Well, when "Private Name, Private Number" showed up on the caller ID, I answered without saying my name (congratulate me, I have a habit of answering anonymous calls with "Hi, this is Hannah", which I shouldn't do, I guess).
The person on the phone said "Hi, is this the Funny Farm Liquor Store?", to which I automatically answered "No", and hung up. Then I burst out laughing after processing what they had just said. I'm sure there are many more creative options of how I could have responded...

P.S. There is an actual Funny Farm Liquor Store in town, so I'm guessing it was really just a wrong number.

Darkness is as light

In addition to our wedding, my parents' 25th anniversary, my mom's birthday, a trip to Illinois (during which I learned you can make quesadillas with an old iron), moving to Washington, and Nate and I starting our jobs, July also brought a request for prayer, as my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. I've been trying to keep people updated by e-mail, but I also wanted to post that here. Heather has been better at posting updates with good news and pictures, so to avoid being too redundant, I'll just say that her surgery went well, and she came home Sunday.
Nate and I are far away from my mom geographically, but I'm thankful that we're still able to keep updated, and that many other people can visit in person. Thank you to all who are praying and encouraging!
