Ho Hum

It's already June!

I finished my book for May last week and am beginning my book for June which is (drumroll please!) Cleopatra: a life by Stacy Schiff. I read chapter 1 last night on our way to Fargo (more on that in a minute). I think I'm really going to like it. 

One thing I found interesting as I read was how awkward it was to read over some of the words. I found myself reading a few words and skipping a few words. It wasn't that they were hard words, they were words that pertained to a subject matter that I'm not very familiar with. I guess I'll become very familiar with the Mediterranean area and all thing Egyptian and Roman by the end of the book! That will be fun.

And yes, we are in Fargo. Levi is finally signing his papers today for the Air Force! (yay!!!!!) He is also taking his DLAB (?) today to see if he qualifies to go to linguist school. Praying for the best. It's been one of those weeks where you just have to keep saying 'God has a plan, God has a plan, God has a plan...' Everything is so unsure and up in the air. If I didn't have faith in God I'm sure I'd be a mess (or more of a mess than I have been). 

Also, if you haven't seen my facebook by chance, I sewed my very first project!! It's a produce bag, very cute, very simple. I even used it on Sunday to buy apples. It was perfect! I'm working on a skirt but I need a different foot for the sewing machine. Maybe next week it'll be finished. :)
