Weekend Wrapup

The conference was very informative and draining. We got to see downtown Chapel Hill where UNC is located, but we weren't able to see much of the Durham/Raleigh area. On the way home I picked up a few books at the airport. I have been interested in reading more classics so I selected The Catcher in the Rye (the cool cover is how I chose my classic).Then I stumbled upon another book Mess: The Manual of Accidents and Mistakes. This book is filled with different exercise like: find a long stick, tape a pen to the end of it, try to draw something holding the far end of the stick.  

"This to me is the purpose of the book: to participate in some situations where you have limited control and venture into territory that you would not normally go with the possibility of creating something completely new and different`than what you might have done before."  Kerri Smith

waiting on our food
I thought this was fun.

Will planted some mint, lavender, tomatoes, and cilantro.
It is official we are composters.


  1. It's official: I just added that Mess book to my list of must-haves. Oh... and that container alone makes me want to compost. I miss you, lilyb.

  2. I did something very similar with my students at TA! Except we used string on the end of a stick, dipped it in ink and drew our self portrait!
