this is the latest

Last weekend I was at the wedding of a high school friend. This is the third good high school friend of mine to get married. I rode a bus for a few hours and met up with another friend to drive the remaining couple hours to the wedding. There were awkward moments during the visit, but I still enjoyed it.

This weekend I finally clipped my hair short. I had been trimming the sides of my haircut as well as I could do myself with a pair of scissors. The top and back became increasingly unmanageable, so I just got rid of it all again. I borrowed an electric trimmer, as my own is still in the box of possessions that I shipped from my previous house (conveniently still packed for easier moving when I finally find a place to move to).

I also spent some time this weekend working on the garden of my hosts. Their back yard had several very nice flower beds when they moved in late last summer. Until now there seemed to be no need of maintenance. Following advice from my mother I cut out a lot of dead flowers and grasses. The beds look much nicer, but I still don’t know what, if anything, to do to all the trees and shrubs.
