Beautiful Places

Mr. Wood and I took an opportunity a few weeks a go to do some bird watching at the Provo Airport Dike. There won’t be many leaves left now, but it will still be gorgeous, and there will still be some insane bird sounds.

If you go, try to find this secret field. The ground is all cracked and prehistoric.

all you need is a sturdy car and you have a lovely loop of water, sky and mountain.

Afterwards we went to the newly renovated Station 22 downtown. It was gorgeous, cozy and the food was delicious. The specialty soda menu was also a wonderful surprise. It was well worth it. A perfect ending to a perfect night. Well, maybe going to bed at 10 was the perfect ending. High schoolers do that to me.

I got the job 2 days before school started. I teach foods & nutrition, and ProStart. I am a cold and efficient master. I take advantage of casual Friday and wear jeans.

if you were wondering.

The shirt is very high quality.
