Apple Cider and Bright Yellow Nail Polish.

I’ve really enjoyed being back in the states this time… I’ll put up a more detailed list of what we’ve been doing when we get home (3 days!) but until then…

Things I’ve Enjoyed Most –

– Getting my new oboe… it’s a YOB441, and it’s absolutely amazing – resonite upper joint, wooden lower joint and bell. All of the keys work really well, and it plays… well, it plays better than anything I’ve really played oboe on before.
– “Running wild,” with Megan and Chris in Maryland, out in their woods.
– Bright yellow nail polish we got at Icing. I’m wearing it right now… it really helps break some bad habits.
– Drinking apple cider. I love apple cider, but I was afraid it would upset my stomach like apple juice. Thankfully, it doesn’t.
– Walking around Williamsburg with my cloak and fuzzy orange hat on… and getting strange looks, but who cares.
– Seeing the old supreme court floor at the Capitol building.
– Having a sleepover with Alice – a walk in a lovely morning, Horatio Hornblower, and chocolate chip pancakes.
– Expedition Everest and meeting Minnie Mouse in Disney World.
– Playing basketball, jumping on the trampoline, cubing, and archery with Joseph
– Walking back from the bamboo forest with Kevin
– doing the “Hungarian Cinderella” with Zach, Joseph, Nate, Candace, and Cait.
– Getting some lovely new flats. I love wearing flats… I also got some nice new skirts.
– Writing for Nanowrimo! This has been the most fun year of that so far.

… and I’m sure there’s much, much more I’m forgetting… but I have some more detailed stuff coming up later, as I already said.

Nanowrimo word count: 18,139… not as fast moving as last year, but I’m over a day ahead of schedule. 🙂 I’ve had 2 cups of tea while writing – ginger tea, which is amazing.
And no procrastinating or getting distracted yet. Ha. Take that. In fact, I wrote 2,000 words in 45 minutes today. I think that’s a record for me.

Well, I’ll see you from the other side of the globe in a few days.
A jet-lagged, hitting the ground running into school, music, and Oasis Ky, but a happy to be home Ky nonetheless.

I am not looking forward to jumping ahead 10 hours. That is never, ever, ever fun. Ever.

    Although I won’t be seeing you when you get back sadly, I look forward to chatting to you on line sometime, Ky! Hearing about all your adventures… :p

    I pray both you, and your family, have a safe and wonderful journey back!

    God bless!

    Everything sounds like so much fun.
    I always wanted yellow nail polish. Or blue. But mom always said it would look like something was wrong with my nails! And now, I never feel like spending money on nail polish. So I will never get to wear yellow.
    I could use some new flats too…for my Christmas concert.
    Jumping ahead 10 hours would be horrible.

    (I bite my nails, too…)
    Have fun with Nano… Your determination inspires me, but not enough to make me do it. :b
