Still at my friend's place. Tonight will be night 3 without a permanent place of residence. However, I'm not complaining. I'm thankful to be "homeless" but have a place to sleep tonight.
When I started this blog, I wanted to post photos frequently. I realized that hasn't been happening lately, so I'm loading this post up with pics!
My long lost friend, Nathalie (from Virginia!), whom I met in Argentina whilst we were both studying abroad there 2 years ago, happened to be coming to Denver with some friends. We went to the Botanic (NOT Botanical) Gardens and went downtown for a bit. It was really fun to get to hang out with an old friend and be with people who are also not from Denver and/or Colorado!
Taking a touristy photo
Amazed at the water lily's resistance to water.
Climbing public art downtown, naturally.
One of the funniest/coincidencical things about this whole living sitch, is I had already agreed to volunteer at the organic garden at my friend's living community that I am now staying at temporarily. Remember that insane hail storm I blogged about? It destroyed a lot of the garden here, so that is why I've been able to help. They needed help replanting some stuff, but hopefully the others will grow back. Yesterday and today, I just walk down the sidewalk and BOOM, garden. Organic gardening is something I've been interested in a long time but I wasn't sure if I would actually like doing it. After experiencing it, I'm more than positive I do indeed enjoy it very much. I'm looking forward to the day that I can do this regularly in my own backyard! But first I need a backyard I suppose... that decision will be for NEXT May...
Anyway, here are some shots:
The little bridged entrance.
The one plant I have some experience with, basil! I transplanting some of these. See the row going back?
I planted carrot seeds here! See them?
Which will hopefully grow into this and then hopefully grow carrot, the food.
I planted beans on either side of the row of...lettuce I think it is?
This is mainly for Aimee and my mom, who are flower lovers. This is camomile!
I have a good housing lead, so please pray it all pans out and I'll be settled again soon!
Also, follow my dear friend, Rachel, who is new to the blogging world!
