In September I got tattoo #5. You should be able to see it a little better if you click on the picture. It says "Freedom in Christ" in Hebrew. When I told my new supervisor that I was going to make an appointment, she told me that she'd always wanted one as well. I told her to come along and see what it's all about. I'm proud to say I've made another convert. We're bonded for life now, Meena. :)
Back in July I had been talking with some co-workers about going paragliding. Well, in September we made that dream come alive and here are a few pics. I went last so these pics are all of my friends.
Here are the pics of my journey. It was very peaceful and calm. Running off the edge of a mountain wasn't scary at all. You won't believe me until you try it. And you should. It's great fun, but honestly, I think next time I'll go parachuting because this wasn't enough of a rush for me. Loved it and am glad I can say I've done it, but didn't get my heart pumping like I thought it would.
After the paragliding day, I had zoom envy of my friend Jas' camera. She got SO close up in some of her shots that I had to go out and buy myself a new camera. Since I've loved most of the shots my camera has taken, I decided to stay with So.ny, but just a newer model with a better zoom. I debated about going hi-tech, but I always have my camera on me so I wasn't ready to be lugging something big around with me all the time. I went with So.ny DSC H20 and here are some of my first shots.
My friends dog, Aggie, had puppies on my birthday this year. I felt like we were kindred spirits. They went camping a couple of times this summer so I was privileged enough to get to look after these sweet little creatures ... and of course had to take a million pics.
Also went to the MCC Sale this year and enjoyed some good, ol' Mennonite favorites like Farmer sausage and Vereniki and Rollkuken. YUMMMMMY!
I started this post with a reunion with an old friend and I'm going to end it the same way. Tiffany was also on the same trip in '92 where I met Missy. Tiff only lives an hour and a half away so I've seen her quite a few more times and still love her friendship. She is one of the sweetest, caring people I know and I'm happy to call her my friend. Thanks for putting up with me for an extra night, Tiff! Can't wait to see you again.
