well. i vacationed all while staying in my city and apartment.
but my friend came (my Cat Cleo's first owner) and she and i had a wonderful time. We browsed through fun bookshops, fancy home stores with all one could dream of for a kitchen, went to IKEA, had high tea, and wonderful meals and times at church and with close friends. we walked by the Parliament buildings and talked.
i love the ordinary days, with sunshine, my church, and everything being normal.
my friend took me shopping, put up my curtains and i put up my lampada that another dear friend of mine had given me for Christmas.
it was so special for me to show her my life, many of the people i love here, my church, those who comprise of my family here, the places i go to and the apartment i live in.
my apartment is almost done! it has taken nearly ten months but i am really getting there! this is the first place i have lived in as a working adult (instead of being a undergraduate and then graduate student).
i am so thankful to God for the many things He has blessed me with!
