Good afternoon, lovelies!! Today is a beautiful day!!! I just got back from a heavenly, brisk walk with my dog, Penny. There's nothing like coming back with nice, rosy cheeks. And the smell. The smell is the most lovely thing
after waiting all year for it to come back around.
My day? Here goes! I woke up at 5, spit out my retainers for some reason, and slept until about seven thirty. When I woke up at five, I realized that it was, in fact, cold. Yes, cold. The chilling air spilled into my room and it felt exhilarating. I realized that it's that time of year again when I need to wear jackets and sweaters in stead of just dreaming about it. I realized that colorful leaves and pumpkins are soon to come. And I realized that hot cider, orchard apples, and bonfires are so close that I can almost smell them. And when I woke up, it was one of those days where you want to curl up in a blanket with a hot drink and a book. So that is exactly what I did. Libby made me some delicious hot chocolate in my favorite mug (with sprinkles!!), and I read my Bible on the couch as I sipped it, savoring every last drop. Everything was so peaceful, it was almost too good to be true.
As the rest of the day continued, I rushed off to biology with Rosie, reviewed for our test, headed to drama, went to the orthodontist to get an impression made for a new retainer, and came home after all that. My mom took Libster to ballet and went to the gym, herself, so I got entrusted to help in the kitchen. Baked beans, the dishwasher, and walking the dog (yes, I know that doesn't happen in the kitchen :). Tonight my friend, Adelle is coming over to spend the night (on a school night! :0) because her parents are going to Hawaii on a business trip. I'm kind of uber excited!! I think we may go on a breakfast picnic (a new tradition of ours).
Well, since sloppy joes, one of my f a v o r i t e foods on the planet are waiting for me in the kitchen, I'd better go grab one! But here is one more photo for ya! (Yep, that's Libby, the little ballerina!) Sorry it's not great! I just saw her sitting there and had an impulse to snap this picture.
