I'm about to learn a big lesson.
And I can't decide if I'd rather pick up the pieces, or sweep up the ashes from the total collapse.

In the mountains of Washougal Washington, they have feet of snow. Some drifts are 7 feet high! We snowshoed around in it, made a cool snowcave, and of course drank plenty of hot tea.
I really enjoy how snow storms like this break up the routine. Instead of the everyday monotony, we are forced to slow down and work around nature's obstacle. When I really stop and think about it, I don't really have any place to go. So let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Now, I'm not a religious person at all. I have things that I believe in and some things that I don't. I have my own explanations for the way things are, and I also hold my own questions for the universe.
So regardless of the whole turkey deal, I am thankful for many things.
Some of them include:
-My unconditionally supportive family
-My friends. Who laugh with me, and know when it's okay to laugh at me.
-The opportunity I have had my entire life for my first rate education
-The fact that I live and breathe in a free country
-The good fortune to have all my senses fully functional and aware so that I soak up the world around me (I could have just typed 'Health')
-Music, the soundtrack to my life (cliche)
-Always having tomorrow.

Today just keeps going on forever, and just when I think I've caught up with everything spinning around me I'm knocked off balance and remain one step behind everything that needs to get done. I love school, but sometimes I can't focus on anything. Not even things worth procrastinating over.
This blog is the most focus I have put in anything today.

I remember floating on my back in the pool in the middle of a Cypriot village watching the Dragonflies dart across the water, eating the little bugs. I also remember sitting at meals and looking at the dusty hills behind the cathedral.
The heat that would make you sweat, even if you were just sitting still.
It doesn't take much for me to close my eyes and remember this place, on these drippy Seattle days.

Went up north to a farm and did some traditional Autumn activities. The corn maze was cool, it was a maze that has the donkey and elephant on an american flag. The sign said "mildly" political. There were no dead ends, but it was large enough to run around and have fun.
Other things I have done today to prepare myself for this season:
1.Put my flannel sheets on my bed.
2.Drank apple cide. The GOOD stuff.
3.Wore wool socks.
Some cute kids playing with some cute animals too.
I am also a fan of the picture of the sun through the corn stalks.
