Thankful Thursday: 9/26/13

[Thankful Thursday is a weekly segment that began 1/10/13 - read why here.  I invite you to join me in practicing gratitude!]

Happy birthday, sister!

I'm thankful for the good weather today.  It was a sunny afternoon -- not hot -- just pleasant.  As we were leaving school for the day, my co-teacher remarked that it was a good day for a walk.  She asked if I had ever walked up to the university in our town before.  I told her I had gone up during a run (but this was during my first week, I think).  Then it was time to part ways as she headed to her car and I headed out the front gate on foot.  

Now normally I would have just walked straight home, but she was right.  It was a gorgeous day, so I took a little walk around some streets I hadn't walked on yet, and then towards the university.  When I turned around and headed back towards my house, I decided to stop at a little park and read for a while.  I have not been finding time to read during the weeks; I've only been reading on my bus rides into Seoul on Saturdays.  So it was great to sit outside in the daylight and get some reading in before I returned to my apartment for the night.

  1. That sounds glorious. There's really nothing better than a daylight outdoor reading session during nice weather. Nothing. Better. :)
