Whew! School is kicking my butt, I tell ya. This Friday I have another chemistry test, followed by an anatomy test on Monday. Other than two social events this weekend, I won't be doing much else beyond studying.
This week's Thankful Thursday seems to have a them of COLD.
This Thursday, I'm thankful for...
The moon - I've been lucky enough to run a few miles with the moon the last few mornings. Morning runs are peaceful enough on their own, but with clear skies and a view of the moon, my runs have just felt a little extra wintery special.
Puffy Jackets/Vests - It might be silly, but my down jacket and vest have been keeping me warm, which makes me really happy as I'm almost always cold.
Heated Seats - It has been cold lately in Eugene and I've been enjoying on occasion, switching on the seat heaters while heading to or from work or class.
It was 26 degrees this morning during my 3.5 mile run around the neighborhood. Warming centers in local churches around the Eugene area have been open the last few nights to provide a place for homeless to sleep on these bitterly cold nights. Having a warm house, cuddly clothes and food to eat definitely makes me extra thankful this time of year.
With Thanksgiving just a week away, I'm really looking forward to a few extra days off work and some down time to enjoy family, friends and good food!
Do you have any fun plans for your Thanksgiving weekend? Any recipes you're planning to make? I need to come up with something for our early Thanksgiving gathering with my mom's side of the family this Sunday.
