Today was a day of new discoveries and new distractions from my cold. I am feeling better than yesterday, probably like 70%. If I am at 90% tomorrow it would be amazing! I think I felt so much better because I allowed myself to sleep in today which meant I had to miss my early class. I was sad I missed it (I know, I’m a nerd who actually likes going to class) but I really needed the sleep.
I finally emerged from my apartment after being home for almost 24 hours. After my class I didn’t want to go home, but I wanted to get out of the law building and I needed to get some reading done.
That was when I made a new discovery.
I decided to take a detour into the botanical garden on campus. What a delightful little find! You walk past the clutch of medical students smoking outside their building and there is a beautiful, serene, secluded oasis in the middle of the city.
After walking for a while I picked a place to sit (there are benches throughout the gardens) and I did my reading.
It was so nice and I didn’t want to leave so I read a little more than the assignment for tomorrow. After a while it was time to head back to the real world.
I had a new distraction waiting in my mail box when I got home: Izzy’s Halloween costume!
Last year she was a Spinx:
This year: Izzy will be a ballerina! We immediately had a photo shoot!
and my personal favorite:
Do you dress up for Halloween? If so, what are you going to be?
