Livin’ Life

Weekly Things

Something I Learned: Hibernation is very different from sleep, and is in fact exhausting. So, often when animals come out of hibernation, they fall dead asleep in order to recharge.

Something I’m Into:  Fleece-lined leggings. I mean, never before in history has there been a more comfortable article of clothing. How lucky are we that we live in this amazing time??

Something I Appreciate: My city. I live in St. Louis Park, MN, and it’s just a very-well run city. My mom and I took a walk around one of our parks this week, and noted all of the nice amenities within it. I often joke that it’s the best place on earth. I’m like 90% serious.


Last week started off with Halloween, which was fun but a little too busy for my taste. On Friday, I attended my monthly discussion group (the word this month was “Gratitude”), and on Saturday, I saw a play called “The Parchman Hour” about the Freedom Riders of the 1960s. It was very well done, and really brought home just how far we haven’t come in race relations since then.img_1054This is from my walk to lunch. I usually get lunch from a hospital cafeteria about a block away from my school. It’s a nice way to get myself moving and grab some fresh air and sunshine. img_1053Jane has been especially clingy recently. Probably just a reaction to the chillier temperatures.img_1052I just love it when she tries to sleep with her head resting in my hand.
