Outside my window...

Outside my window...a gray November sky, as sundown approaches and the rain beating down on the last leaf, hanging onto its branch.
I'm thinking...how ready I am for Thanksgiving break. Thinking about how far I've come since September and how much I've learned in just 48 days of school.
I'm hoping...that I can make it through the next four weeks leading up to the end of the semester, all while being able to enjoy life and get some time for myself in there.
I'm hearing...the rhythmic pattering of the rain on the leaf covered sidewalk. There is something about a constant rain that is soothing and comforting, as long as I am listening from inside.
Some of my favorite things...this time of year, the holiday cheer is building and I love the coziness and happiness that is floating in the air.

I really like the texture of that metal bench with the leaves on it. And I love listening to the rain while INSIDE too! I think it is soothing.
