Temperatures have dropped and we are finally experiencing the fall/winter we have all been anxiously waiting for. I love this time of year. Time to bring out the knitting. Pull on the thick wooly socks and cozy up under a big, fluffy blanket with coffee in hand.
Oh and the sleeping. Keeping the windows opened just a smidge, breathing that crisp air, while smothered under a down comforter. Amazing! Getting up and out of bed is that much harder, but well worth it.
I can finally wear my boots, coats, scarves, and hats. These are exciting times, I tell you. I know everyone in colder climates are rolling their eyes right about now, but it's so refreshing for us when last week we were still having highs in the 70s. It's a much needed change that impacts not only what I wear, but my overall mood. I might not be so happy tomorrow morning waking up for my outdoor boot camp class, when it is supposed to be a whopping 28 degrees out there. I might be crazy.
Also, I did it! I finally bought an acoustic guitar. Along with trying to learn a bit of Nepali language, I'm adding guitar to the list. I hope I never stop appreciating the value of learning new things. I had the day off and I just played around with the guitar for a good three hours. It's nice how many free online tutorials are out there, so refreshing to actually have more resources when I've had such a hard time finding anything for violin music. Garage Band on my Mac even has 8 free lessons included. Who knew. I feel like I have a good start (don't worry I won't start recording myself and putting it up on YouTube until I've been playing for at least a week). Now to find some fun easy songs to learn to play. Suggestions?
