Merry's Bead Shop

Hey Y'all!
Here's the store that Merry owns. I've been spending a lot of time here, and I've started selling my jewelry online! www.etsy.com
Also, here's a picture of Merry and me after our tour of the bay.


Pictures of my house in Eureka!

Here are pictures of the House I'm staying in... it's really pretty. Also, I'm having a really great time here! I went to the beach with Lucy, the dog, and Merry, my host. Yesterday, I went on a motorcycle ride with Russell, my other host... he's really cool... but super eclectic. He wears a lot of strings of beads every day, that he makes himself. He's gone for the weekend, but I'm sure that I'll have fun with Merry and the dog! Tomorrow I'm going to the Farmer's Market with the other interns, and then tomorrow night Merry and I are going to a Solstice Party with a bonfire on the beach! Sunday I'm getting a boat tour of the Humboldt Bay, and then hopefully I'll get to go to church at this beautiful church in town.
For now, the pictures are of my house, and the weeds in the garden... I can't believe those beautiful flowers are weeds! The other dogs in the pictures from the beach are dogs we met while we were there.
(By the way, "Tiny" the kitten found a home next door to Russell and Merry, and is happy to see me every time I stop by!)


Russell Found a Kitten

One of my hosts, who I will talk about later (super cool guy), found a little kitten in the neighborhood and brought him home. He is totally cute. We called him Tiny at first, because he's really small, but then we decided that since his eyes are so blue, we'd call him Blue. More later, because I'm busy now, but I'm so excited for the little one! If anyone wants him (Yellow House?) He's up for adoption! Call me!

(The three cats in the other picture are L to R, Nosey, Monkey and Bob)


I'm FINALLY here!

Finally in Eureka, I got in last night late after many airline troubles... but I'm and sound and without luggage... however, I had a great morning with one of my bosses, Kaitlin, at the Oyster fest. I tried my first oyster... I had two in fact, drenched in butter and garlic. It was okay... I wouldn't order it off a menu, but I'd cordially eat it at a dinner party without gagging... then we went to the farmer's market and got some organic cherries to get the garlic out of my mouth... they were to die for!
I met my other boss, Shannon, and she seems really cool, but I don't know anyone very well yet.
The house where the office is is amazing! It is an old Victorian house with 10 chickens, two ducks, some cats and a really sweet black lab named Annie. They warned me that she's really shy, but she loves me already... she can tell I love doggies!
Speaking of dogs, my host family has a puppy named Lucy, and she's adorable... she's some sort of mutt with curly black fur. We also have four cats and some toads and fish. My favorite cat so far is Bob... he's an orange cat with no tail, that purrs a lot as soon as I get near him.
I'm a little nervous right now, because I think the people I'm working for are a lot more liberal than I am... I'm sure we'll have a lot of debates about politics especially about the election.... they're all voting Green, which I find RIDICULOUS! Oh well... I'll get used to it.
More later... I'm going exploring now!



I'm leaving for Eureka in two days, and I just found out my address:

EUREKA, CA 95501

Wish me luck!
