Grad school is great but demands most of my time these days. Josh and I recently went to Maokong, one of our favorite spots to get out of the city and into nature.
This decoration is from a tea restaurant and takes me back to my favorite PSU class-History of the Dress.
My lotus project is slowly progressing. I laid all the petals out to inspire me to keep working. After this next skein is worked out I’ll make larger petals and one day get to switch to green yarn.
I squeezed some time and made it back to the Taiyuan Puppet Museum.
It’s so nice hanging with Kim and the puppets again! I’m helping her on making a new costume for demo purposes.
It was wonderful to take a day to focus on costume problems instead of international ones. A much needed break!
Maokong was beautiful as always and this time Josh and I joined our friend Olivia for a hike to a waterfall.
So beautiful and peaceful and only a short ride from Taipei.
On an unrelated note, I always take free tissues from people handing them out. Spare tissue is practical to carry but sometimes I get delightful surprises like this package:
These ladies feel my current mood under all this homework. Three more weeks of fall semester left!
