It has been awhile since I’ve posted, I say this because I have completed some tasks since my last entry, but have lacked the time to write about them. So I’ll have to go a little ways back in time to tell about the adventures I have completed recently!
Watch the sun rise and the sun set in the same day Although it wasn’t exactly in the setting I had originally thought when I placed this on my list, I’m going to count it for now, but might complete it again while being more intentional! On October 14th I attended the ISAA conference with some of my co-workers and in order to make it to where the conference was held, (Fort Wayne, Indiana) we had to leave at 6am. That was an adventure all in itself,one I will spare the details of, but as we were driving to the conference we saw the sun rise. After returning to Indy from the conference, I headed to Iowa for a partial family gathering. Since, I didn’t leave Indy until 6pm and its a good 8 hours to northeast Iowa, I stayed at my good friend Alyssa’s house and ended up rolling in around 11:00ish. As I was driving to BIG town of Grand Mound, I saw the sunset. So I saw the sunrise and the sunset from inside a moving vehicle 🙂
Go to an Apple Orchard As I previously mentioned I went to Iowa for a partial family gathering. Some of my mom’s side of the family gathered at Gay’s Mill in Wisconsin for a picnic and to go to the Apple Orchards. The weather was great, the picnic was delicious, and the company couldn’t have been better! Plus, there is nothing better than Honey Crisp Apples and I got plenty of them! Below are some pictures from the Orchards 🙂 The rest of the weekend was filled with taking meals to the guys in the field, riding in the combine, digging potatoes, and other family filled fun! Although I know that fieldwork, being in the Dominican Republic, and fulfilling RA duties are legit excuses I wish Dad, Jeremy, and Jenna could have attended as well! You were missed!
Make a wish at 11:11 on 11/11/11 I made a wish at 11:11pm on 11/11/11. I looked at the clock at 11:12am and was like shoot I just missed it, so being clever I told myself I’d make a wish at 12:11 as that would be 11:11 Iowa time as I’m an Iowan at heart, but I looked at the clock at 12:12…Fail! So I set an alarm on my phone so that I wouldn’t miss 11:11pm and when 11:11 came around I was actually skyping with my mom and told her it’s 11:11 make a wish! of course it was only 10:11 in Iowa…so I made her be quiet for a minute while I made my wish. Of course I’m not going to tell you what I wished for as then it wont come true!
Below are some pictures from my weekend in the great state of Iowa!
