Well, I did it. I finished the secret garden embroidery.

July 27, 2007:



August 9, 2007:



I stopped working on it at the end of last summer since life just got busy and I was working on finishing my MA degrees. And now it is finished. I have just been determined to finish it, and today was the day. I sat outside by the pool for the majority of the day and stitched. The water is 72 degrees now, which is a bit cold for me, but it was still nice. My dad and I were out there all day. Dave came over as well later in the afternoon and we swam together. After that, Dave and I went to his aunt's house to celebrate his grandmother's 95th birthday.

I then came home, started watching the Olympics, and finished the embroidery.



Before lunch, I did some yardwork with my mother. Fun fun.


Our washing machine is still out. I hate wearing clothing and using towels since I'm then reminded that I can't wash them easily. And, I have a bathing suit, pool towel for Dave and I and shower towels. Sucks.

I read the book years and years ago...and saw it on broadway in the 4th grade. I don't remember the story totally now (like, what happens in it) but I remember the gist of it.

Oh! I didn't know there was a movie.

However, this is horrible, and I shouldn't post it, but I was a funny kid. In the 4th grade, we read the book. Then, I went to see it with my family over Christmas break in NY. I told my teacher, so when I came back, she asked me what I thought and what I learned from it. I told her that I learned that one should "drink bottled water when traveling to India." I'm horrible.
