Tasty chocolate dessert at Victoria - it was called Mississippi {something} Cake, which was kind of fun.

Cute Drinks

The only reason I drank this was because it was so cute! I am a very cold and logical person, right?

The good and the bad

The bad news…I opened the cabinet above my sink, and several items came surfing out.

The good news…I was able to slow down one item’s progress.

The bad news…I slowed it down with my head.

The good news…only one item broke.

The bad news…it was a small glass coffee pot that shattered and scattered.

The good news…I didn’t like it all that much anyway.

The bad news…it was really difficult to sweep up all the shards of glass.

The good news…I found two shards I missed in the sweeping.

The bad news…I found them with my feet.

The good news…all is well now.

When I was on my homestay in April, I got to eat beautifully prepared meals like this.


This coming week, I have someone from Sweden staying at my house. Unfortunately, I can’t quite make food this pretty. I hope she won’t mind some American style breakfasts!

One thing I am learning about homestays…they are a little scary on BOTH ends! When you are the guest, you are a little nervous about fitting in to another household, and when you are the host, you are a little nervous about having what your guest needs.

But I had a fantastic time as a homestay guest, so I hope I will also have a great time as a host. Smile
