1. I am a very strange feminist. I believe in equal opportunity and equal pay. I believe in equal partnership in marriage, in work, in church, in family, in education, in sports (go Olympics!). But I am apparently a very traditional feminist because I love making quilts and aprons, and that's about as non-feminist as you get. But I LOVE them. 2. I love to cook. I've always enjoyed cooking, but I'm really having a good time trying new recipes. Tonight I made chicken marinaded in this yummy lemon rosemary garlic stuff, with squash in olive oil and lemon pepper. Then I had to try this recipe for roasted red potatoes with pine nuts and balsamic vinaigrette. With corn on the cob from the farmer's market. And homemade ice cream--mint oreo. And to top it all off, I ate by candlelight on my patio. Delightful. 3. I love making lists and crossing things off. I made my own little planner with a page for each day and I have to write things down to remember all the madness, but I love the feeling of accomplishment. For example, by 11:30 am yesterday, I had read my scriptures, run 14 miles, cleaned the kitchen, the bathroom, and my bedroom, done 3 loads of laundry, watered my flowers, made blueberry waffles, and was at the pool reading the book I have to have done by class on Wednesday. It was exhilarating, I tell you. (And a very unusual day. I'm NEVER that productive. For the record.)
4. I change my sheets weekly. It's a firm rule I have. There's nothing like the smell of clean laundry and crisp sheets. And rumor may have it that I have ironed my sheets.
5. I won a major award ("F-R-A-G-I-L-E. Must be foreign). The Helen Papanikolas Best Paper on Utah Women's History award. It was for a paper I wrote on the Representative Women of Deseret. Here is a website I made two years ago for a class.
6. I am SOOOOO excited for this summer to be over and for fall to start. It's been a bummer of a summer, and I say, bring on the Fall. Bring on a new season in my life. I even bought a pair of orange pants to wear to my first day of class tomorrow--the last semester I'll have of class as a student. Ever. Wahoo. Bring it on.
