I was going to do a short "happy thanksgiving" post today but I feel as though I have some thoughts to explore. So here we go.
Watched Hancock last night in the dark. Couldn't help but pause once in awhile to look out the window. The snow was so beautiful last night. The sky was a shade of blue I wish I could describe. It had such a calming effect on me. It also reminded me what I am most thankful for and that is just being where I am today. Healthy, alive, having a roof over my head and having some one who loves me just as I am.
I immediately looked out my window after turning off my alarm this morning to see how much it did snow. The faint white glow coming from the curtains was my first clue. Yep, still snowing. I only wished I was off today to avoid the drive to work but knowing that I will have the next 4 days off made my mood better. Opted for thermal, jeans, and uggs for work wear...I keep in mind that 1. I will be sweeping off quite a bit of snow from my buried civic and 2. I never know when I'm going to be digging myself out of being stuck somewhere. The perks of driving a small car I tell ya.
The drive was good, a bit scary but good. Happy that I've missed morning rush hour. Not happy that the jeep with the huge tires is flying past me, causing a mass of white to blind me for a brief moment. I also enjoy seeing all the plow truck drivers with there shovels and sand in the beds of their trucks, working like mad men to get all their lots done before they're filled with cars. It reminds me of one of my very favorite movies, Beautiful Girls. It's one of those movies I can watch anytime it's on tv. Plus a lot of the characters remind me of some of the guys I know here.
I have tapped into my favorite winter Pandora mix. Started with my fav band, Death Cab. Now includes White Stripes, The Shins, Muse, Amos Lee, Feist, The Weepies....lot's of other bands I hadn't
heard of until now. Love. Music totally sets my mood for the day. I downloaded the new Dido and as much as I love her voice, her music kind of depresses me a little. So she's on the back burner for now.
Work out tunes must include Linkin Park (yes, I still listen to old school LP) Santogold, a little Beyonce...you get the idea. There was a reason why I brought up the music thing but my short-term
memory is in full effect so we'll end it here.
