Anyway, here are 5 random things from my week.
1. My cat takes selfies. She's pretty good at it too.

3. I gave an assignment for my students to go outside of their comfort zone and try something they have never done before. I gave a list of 20 or so suggestions. Two of the males in my classes chose to go try on women's clothing and not explain if they were asked. I am proud of them for choosing to challenge ideas of gender and masculinity. Both reported it being an uncomfortable experience, but worth it.

4. We went hiking yesterday and really enjoyed it. For once, the wind wasn't up and the sun was. It was a beautiful, bright, clear fall day. We scared up a couple covey of quail (say that twice fast!), and a few little snakes by the marshy areas, and found a hornet's nest. I loved it- beautiful day and hours of visiting with G. Ellensburg is a wonderful compromise for us; G gets a city and I get away from people by walking 15 minutes in any direction.
|Nobody was home|
|The trails here are well managed.|
|She finds your grammar...lacking.|
There you have it. Hope you had a good weekend and week. I'm also excited that my niece, who just started college a few weeks ago, has moved out on her own. I'm a proud auntie, even though she thinks English is her worst subject. <3 br="" nbsp="">
