Saturday morning was beautiful. We decided we would take a walk. I brought the camera so I could take some pictures. This tree is one of my favorites. I watched it bloom all last year and never got around to taking a picture of its petite little blossoms. I have no idea what kind of tree it is. After it blooms the whole tree is covered in leaves that are shaped like hearts. Will also exercised his photography skills as well.
Late morning we headed over to the community garden which is located in the West end of town. We learned about composting and planting. We met a man named Miran who spoke of the relationship he has with the earth. He said when we enter into any relationship we have to give something. He said it is the same with the earth. When we give good things to the earth, the earth will give good things to us.
Saturday evening we were pooped. We caught up on some of our shows and watched some basketball. This is the first time I have ever filled out a bracket. I am in 4th place as of Saturday. My friend Smruti would be proud.
Sunday morning we attended a brunch for a couple that recently got engaged. We headed back home and Will started studying and I decided to make my first batch of bread. I had any old roommate, Colleen, that used to make bread and it smelled so good and tasted even better. I gave it a shot. It turned out ok. It tasted fine but the outside was really hard. I had in mind bread that would be softer like the kind at the grocery store. I will have to try again.
