Last week I locked my keys in the car and was forced to bike to work. It’s approximately a mile and fortunately Kansas is very flat so it’s not a huge deal. After the chilly morning fog cleared, it was a really nice day, so although it isn’t the ideal situation, it turned out OK.
I’m glad that I didn’t have to bike to work this week. It’s much colder: meaning temperatures around freezing (plus or minus a few degrees). Overall, I’m thankful for the mild winter (very few below-freezing days) that reminds me more of my CA life (“winter” means 50 – 60 degrees and sunny). This week we got dumped on, but it didn’t stick around. I wonder how long my luck will hold out… crossing my fingers we make it to spring without a school-closing, road-condition-endangering blizzard (we had several last Jan/Feb/Mar.)
A few things that have perked up my days:
Admiring my dishes. Wishing for a cabinet with glass doors (like this) or open shelving to show off.
A most delicious, healthy lunch. Amics roasted veggie wrap.
A new friend for the mantel. Target. $10.
Finally, a new purse! The faux leather on my gray purse was getting all flake-y and peel-y and all-around unsightly. This one’s from H&M that is big enough and chic enough to meet all my purse expectations. Oh, and gold accents are a must.
