Just Something I Made

Here are some of the pieces that I have created since we have been here-it's not very much, but I really haven't had as much time as I thought I would up here. I have been on an earring kick lately, and I've surprised myself with some of them. I am happy with my new lovelies! Here they are:

The Algebra of Infinite Justice....

“The only dream worth having … is to dream that you will live while you’re alive and die only when you’re dead … To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or to complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

-Arundhati Roy

And it starts...

As September comes to an end, I find myself engulfed with an endless routine that consists of work...class...homework...dinner...bed. My state of mind has been robotically challenged with textbook after textbook and internet postings on my class discussion board. I can't see the end of it! I have been going to college full time since the fall of 2005, and I'm two years away from getting my degree. That seems like a lifetime! So if you have been wondering what we've been up to-this was a little summary :) Fun.

Life in the Bush...Husband Hunts, Wife Cooks.

Clint was invited to go seal hunting with one of the janitors on Saturday. They left around 8 in the morning and went to camp-which is a place where the villagers go to hunt for food. Most of the families here go every weekend to camp. This is a picture of where they went:
These "posts" are spread out across the road for when it gets really foggy out, the hunters and their families can find their way back to the village:

Here is the janitor, Wesley, sitting in his blind. The hunters wait there until a seal comes. Clint said they saw one earlier Sat. morning, but Wesley said he couldn't get a clear head shot.
Here is a Minky whale that was playing around for most of the day:
The scenery is just beautiful-I'm kind of jealous Iwasn't there
And here's Clint: He had fun on Sat. and plans on going again next weekend.


And this is what I did on Saturday along with homework and jewelry: I made a apple pie with graham cracker crust. Clint said it tasted like Kooga(sp? a german dessert), it may not look like much, but it tasted pretty darn good:) And of course, homemade bread. Again, don't let looks fool you-this was really good.


Happy Grandparent's Day


September 7 is national Grandaprent's Day! Let them know you love them.

School Days

I am sure you all are wondering how Clint is doing as a second grade teacher-I'm hear to say that he's doing wonderful and loves every minute of it (well...you understand). When I'm not busy working myself, I like to take pictures of his classroom and his kids while they are working. The first week of school, the kids -k-12 grade- made kites. The kites are a "welcome back" activity that they do to get back in the swing of things. Yes Mom, the wind is superb here for kite flying :) It was pretty neat seeing students fly their kites as it was a beautiful, sunny, windy day. I was surprised to see that even the older students in 11th and 12th grade were enjoying themselves. Here are some pictures:

I know....I know...I'm supposed to be showing you the students, but I couldn't resist...he was having too much fun!
You have to admit...that's pretty neat, especially when all the kids are having a good day :)
Check back in the next couple of days, I will be posting pictures of the first day of school once I download them onto the computer.
Hope everyone's doing well.
