In other words, today’s weather was just like Seattle. Cold and rainy and windy.
Even after a 45 minute journey to school at 7am though, soaking wet and cold and thinking I might be willing to ride the two trains right back home so I could crawl into bed and go back to sleep, look at what I got to see on campus:
I actually made the effort to blow dry my hair this morning (before looking out the window, obviously), and by the time I got to campus it looked the same as when I got out of the shower. When I was taking these pictures, I didn’t realize that as I was crouching down by the ground to take a photo, half of my coat was submerged in a puddle. I think things like that are so funny – even though I felt cold and uncomfortable, the sillyness of it all gave me something to laugh about all day. I don’t know why I ever worry, life never ceases to be interesting. So, as a thanksgiving post, a couple of “little” things I am especially thankful for: beauty and the unexpected.
