Fall is here

It is chilly today. Thankfully I had the day off from school today. It is a comp day and since I did other workshops this summer, I get today off and will get another day in January. I slept in this morning which was quite lovely. I intended to get up earlier to take my car in to have a flat fixed, but it didn't happen. I did get it there by 10:45 but had to wait about an hour. Originally it was going to be an hour and a half, but thankfully, it didn't take that long. I read one and half books while waiting. Afterwards I went over to the mall. I probably should have come home and cleaned house or started working on my paper, but it didn't happen that way. The main reason I went is because I needed a new bra and the only one I've found that I love is at Victoria's secret. I wish I could just wear a basic cheap one, but all of those that I have are either uncomfortable or the straps constantly fall down. Since the two that I have are literally falling apart, I decided to finally break down and pay the big bucks for another. But first I stopped in JC Penny's and had to try on a few things. I ended up getting three shirts because I always need shirts. I got nice bright green one since I don't have much of that color in my wardrobe and I have beautiful pair of emerald earrings that Marty gave me once upon a time that I don't wear much because I don't have that color. After the mall I went to Taco Villa (of course) and picked up lunch. From there I went to Hobby Lobby and spent probably 45 minutes looking at beads and then talking myself out of buying anything despite the 50% off sale on all of them. I wanted to make some new rosaries, but I know that I don't have time so I just decided to let it go. I headed home and discovered it was quite chilly. I wanted to turn on the heat but realized the filter needed to be changed but I didn't have another one. I left the old one in and turned the heat on anyway. I curled up in my bed (with another space heater on) for about 30 minutes. Now I'm trying to motivate myself to get some things done. I'm going to head to the library around 5:30 and get started on my paper and hopefully write one or two journals. I'm doing pretty well on reading. Flying this weekend allowed for me to get several books read. I read another one here last night and will have two or three more read by this evening. I am still doing well in my Children's Lit class. I made a 100 on my recent discussions. I still have no idea how I did on my paper for the other class and yet I have to turn in another paper tomorrow by midnight. (And I haven't even started it except for sending out the survey to the math teachers.) I don't think it will be too involved though. I won't need to use a lot of sources, just the basics of why I did the survey, the method used and why I chose that method and then analyze the results of the survey. I probably won't have results until tomorrow, however.
I need to get busy on some house work and make something for supper before Josh gets home.

It's so funny, I live in northern VA and it was 85 today. You're all the way down there in Texas and you've got the heat on. What's up with that?

I love days like that; reading, getting things checked off the list (like the tire), shopping, eating my favorite food, napping. A little jealous here!

I love curling up with a good book.
