First Semester Completed!!!


Yes, first semester is finally over and I am on my mid-year break!!! What an amazing year so far too! The more I learn about history, the more I love it. I think I've pretty much decided it has to be either medieval history in particular or European history in general. Of course, I wouldn't mind learning more about American colonial history too, especially the from a woman's perspective. Maybe in the future!

The photo is the fuschia in my garden which I planted a couple of years ago. A very dear friend gave me part of her fuschia tree and I planted them in both corners of our garden. This plant is the better one. It is taller than me already!! It doesn't have many shoots yet, but I'm sure it be more full this year. I also have a favorite tree that is on our street, but I can't find the photo of it...gosh darn!! Whenever I do, I'll post it. Of course, it is Winter here in NZ at the moment. These are photos from Summer...yep, I'm really S-L-O-W.

I've been enjoying my break, which offically began yesterday, although I finished my exams last Friday. What will I be doing? Well, I've already begun window cleaning...I know...what a great way to spend my break. Well, it has to be done, right? The condensation in NZ is dreadful. I finally bought a squeegee...yes, I have to use a squeegee every morning. And get this...each window collects about 1/2 cup of water!!! I was amazed myself.

Any projects planned? Hmmm, I can't imagine NOT tatting or crocheting something, but I'm not sure what it will be yet. I really want to get my hands on some beads and maybe improve my last design, if not start another one. We shall see ;). I've got 3 weeks...
