A Productive Day

Our workshop was productive today - we have the start on a logo for our Indigenous Placenames Conference, which will be held early September 2010. We worked on other things like who we might like for keynote speakers and sessions and excursions. We have a title and subtitle, too.

It's going to take place here in Guovdageiadnu. I'm planning, if I can afford it, to come here a few days early and tour around the country some. I'd like to bring Eddie and Scott, too.

Then, I walked down to the village and up to a really cool church. Then, I found the grocery store and found the chocolate bars that I liked when I was here in March. Yay! I'm bringing home a little supply of them.

Then, dinner with my colleagues - we had a good conversation. I'm tired, though. I didn't sleep well last night. My plan is to stay up for another hour, then call Eddie to say good night and then go to sleep. I really need a good night's sleep. I think my lack of sleep last night had to do with the fact that I missed a dose or two of one of my Chinese herbs, which is supposed to help my kidney yin. My kidney yin is depleted and therefore, this herb replenishes it - when it's depleted, women tend to have more hot flashes. So, I took some extra and the hot flash I just had a few minutes ago didn't last as long or was as bad as it was earlier in the day.

Here's to a good night's sleep!

Sounds like a very productive, and good day. I hope you can get some sleep tonight.

Hi Carver,
I slept better last night and even slept in and was late for our meeting this morning.
