HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE SMURFS! The Smurfs are officially 50 years old today. Who'da thunk it?
So it's near the end of Monday. It's been a good day. Went to school and nearly froze to death walking across campus this morning. Took my History quiz, which I think I aced. Drove home and frantically stopped in the store to pick up a few things that we needed, rushed home, grabbed a sandwich and went to pick up the Doodlebug.
I don't think I've mentioned it here, but I am listening to the novel "Cold Mountain" on my drive. I'm enjoying the story, although at times it sort of shocks me. I try to relate the description of the landscape to my adventures in the Appalachian Mountains. I try to imagine the severity of the life that was afforded people during the seventeenth century - then I am just grateful to be able to listen to the story from the comfort of my car. I try not to picture Jude Law as Inman and Nicole Kidman as Ada but I do see Renee Zwelleger as Ruby - I cannot wipe that image from my mind.
Other than that, it's been a peaceful Monday and for that I'm grateful. I need to make myself focus more on accomplishing my list of goals that I listed a while back - with going back to school last week, I've sort of gotten off task. Thankfully my friend The Source reminded me of them so I guess I need to dust them off and give it a good southern girl go!
So until next time, I bid you peace and serenity - I'm going off to pray for snow! :)
