Unexpected Fun

Yesterday morning as I sat on the couch, the hummingbirds came. Woo hoo! I got a picture of one.

Denis and I were going to go on a hike or something. Instead, we went here:

IKEA! Awesome! Denis was looking for a new work table for his place. I was just looking at all the cool stuff. I didn’t end up getting a pile of odds and ends like I expected, but I did find some really cool new curtains for my place. I love the material.

They’re about a foot too long. I’m not sure if I’ll try to shorten them, or if I’ll just let them pile up on the floor.

I also got some tool kits for the new teachers at my school. We have three new graduates joining us. I’m so excited to meet them! I think the tool kits will be a great classroom-warming gift.

I did have to borrow a rolly suitcase carryon thing from Denis though. The curtains and tool kits are heavy and would for sure put my suitcase over the limit.

I fly back home today. My direct flight to Maui was changed into a connection through Honolulu. Ugh. And extra landing and takeoff. Hopefully the flights will be smooth.

    Congratulations on a successful curtain quest! They are so lovely, I can almost forgive you for going to IKEA. Those tool kits are going to be very appreciated, too. Did Denis find his desk?

    Safe travels today. Lots of people will be praying for you!

    I’m pretty sure a trip to IKEA counts as a hike, especially if you followed all the directional arrows.
    I also love those curtains! And what a thoughtful gift for your new colleagues.
