just one of those days

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

'Tis a gloomy day. This is the one day out of the year in southern California where it is cold, raining, dark shows up early, and you hear thunder. That's right, there's a vicious thunderstorm in oside right now. Quite the damper in my plans to the beach tonight. It must not be fun for the stud working in the rain out there! I was also just told that the majority of base lost power  for a few hours because of the weather. Woah, where'd that come from?

I met a friend for coffee earlier and it was nice to get out, get warm, and have girl talk. I came home, finished a book, snuggled up to some HGTV and my cupcake blanket, and lit some candles. Now, it's off to homeworkland. Two of my classes are done on Friday, so I need to get started on that. I also need to get out of this rut and get some sleep tonight so that I can actually wake up for bible study tomorrow. I've really missed it lately - needing some encouragement, please.

We are more than ready to be home for the holidays. Fall always seems to drag on for me. Summer is usually too busy, and spring just flies by. But fall and winter seem to go on forever. I don't know what it is - the  fact that it gets below 65 and I freeze at night (note that I grew up south of Houston..) or the fact that I can't get away with cute dresses and sandals anymore. Not that kind of weather right now. At least it's a great excuse for a mocha!

But back to school - I am finally caught up! Now to get ahead... I really need some motivation right now! I am still on track to graduate in May and will do so (whoop!), and as of my current GPA will also graduate with honors (double whoop!) - just got to keep this up and I will be Magna Cum Laude. Hello Dean's List... How cool is that?! Liberty has been good to me - it's been quite the journey. I am SO ready for summer - to teach my final lesson, turn in my last paper, and receive that degree in the mail and get it custom framed. I need summer right now - sand, sun, and a college graduate. Also, a good excuse to order more blue bell - we are almost out of homemade vanilla, and the half gallon we currently have is about to get freezer burn. Eeek!

Woah, this has been kind of all over the place. It's just one of those days, you know?

Soon I will be posting a book review, an update on the juicer and sewing machine adventures, and a few other things :) Just got to get through midterms due Friday!


  1. I was loving the storm we got yesterday! I misses rain. I love the sound and the smell. It's so soothing and relaxing to me. I remember when I was that close to graduation and how excited I was. So happy for you!

  2. I'm not a fall/winter weather person. Go figure, we're stationed in Massachusetts of all places where the winter is LOOONG, cold, and snowy...yuck. This Texas girl needs some heat!

  3. I have been so out of the blogworld the past week! Sounds like it was a sleepy day. I am heading to SD to try to find a place to live Friday! We should make it there by Monday! I'll leave the 25 and then head back when our move in date is. Should I bring some warmer clothes for the eveings? Sounds like it! I can't wait! And we are getting closer to a coffee date! Woo hop! Hope the rest of your week goes well!
