Today I walked into school and was told that there was no biology today. That means that I did not have to come to school until 10:45, two hours and fifteen minutes from now. I could go to town, but honestly, it is freezing as all hell and the wind is sharp, stabbing the body with slivers of cold. So I decided to sit in the library and write this as well as getting my English newspaper homework done.

It hasn't been a great couple of weeks. I was under the weather for all of last week and then got worse over the weekend. I ended up staying home from school on Monday and now I feel much better. I think it was the rapid change in temperature that wreaked havoc with my health.

Last Saturday I went skiing with Eve, my Rotary Counselor, and her daughter who is in her early twenties and snowboards. The "mountain" was very small and flattish, but still one of Estonia's only ski areas. It was great fun and I'm glad I went even though it probably wasn't good for my health because I was already sick. Oh well.

My Rotary Club has its tenth anniversary party in about two weeks. And I'm going to wear a dress. One lady from my club is making the dress. I went to her house on Tuesday so I could try it on and she could finalize the sizes. I will go back at some point to try on the whole thing put together so we can finalize the lengths. The fabric is dark purple with vertical lines of light green flowers. Also Eve and I are going to find shoes at some point since when we went on Sunday we had to end early because I was very sick.

Also, as per request, my host mother's name is Tiina, my host father's Marek, sisters Gerli 16, Gerda 14, Marta 5.

Clara's birthday is on Friday, and she's turning 17. I have been invited to her birthday party on Saturday.

That's all I can think of for now. Facebook reminders to write on my blog are great. Thanks Mom.
