In fact, we’ve been having the opposite of sunny weather here in Upstate New York. I thought we were lucky to have a white dusted ground for Christmas, but we got lucky the day after (and the day after that) and now have a solid duvet covering of the thick white stuff covering our yard. Unfortunately, along with this beautiful snow comes ice, which does not a comfortable bum make. Getting out of the car today, I slipped on the ice and went down, cutting my hand. Luckily everything was fine, but it scared me something fierce. The way I reacted, you’d have thought something worse had happened. My Dad, who stayed out to salt, apparently fell as well. I’ve half a mind to get out there with a pick axe….
But back to the sun coming out. It came out today, and will continue to come out into my future. As a recent alum, I am no longer confined to the ivy covered walls of woman-land, and have begun my adult life! You’d laugh if you could see me now, in the bathrobe my mother made for me for my 16th birthday and the silly tasseled woolen hat with I got even younger. Yes, I may not look like an adult, but I, Hannah, am a gainfully employed college graduate.
Behold first day. Actually, I kind of miss that room right now.
