Woke up to snow.
I knew it was cold last night!
Walked to school experiencing not so much cold as thrill. It was great, seeing snow all over the ground, trees, cars. Then in the morning I had the littlest, cutest kids and while I was teaching it started to snow... I couldn't resist gazing out the window watching big, soft snowflakes leisurely descend.
I recalled the first time I saw snow fall, in my first week in Vilnius, studying Lithuanian, a classmate pointed to the window and I was entranced. The rest of my Euro classmates were underwhelmed, but I'd never seen snow FALL. It was wonderful.
I have just booked my ticket home. Back for Australia Day. Ain't life grand?
We have one chance
To get everything right
My friends, my habits, my family
They mean so much to me
I just don't think that it's right
I've seen so many ships sailing
Just heading back out again
And go off sinkin'
Thanks, Modest Mouse, for those lyrics...
