today we had a going away lunch at work – for me! We went to Sakyo in Mt. Pleasant and had some sushi and some excellent Japanese food. Tomorrow is my last day here at the IT Lab. On Friday I’ll be in Columbia at the University of South Carolina for orientation, and classes will start the following Monday.
Callum is doing really well – here he is at the beach (Isle of Palms). He has become quite the little man – talking and singing and walking all over the place (he refuses to crawl anymore). He is quite a handful to say the least! A few seconds after this picture was taken Callum crouched down, picked up a big handful of wet sand, and put it in his mouth. Tasty.
the other day I lay down on the grass beside our house, right next to the Carolina Jasmine I planted a couple of years ago. I lay there for a while, feeling the breeze waft over me, smelling the perfume from the flowers (which are extremely fragrant this time of year) and relaxing. It was nice – I highly recommend it. Just find yourself a nice Carolina Jasmine plant and lay down on the grass downwind of it. You won’t be disappointed. Unless somebody walks by and steps on you.
today I’m going to steam clean the carpets. Yesterday I painted a few doors. We have rented out our house to an elderly lady who seems very nice. She will be moving in at the end of the month, so I’m fixing up the house a bit in preparation for her arrival. I’m definitely going to miss our decently-sized house while living in a tiny apartment at school but I am glad that it will be in good hands.
