Today was a good day.
It didn't start out that way. I had plans to get up earlier and make breakfast for Matt but I completely over slept and woke up feeling kinda blue. But the day got better after that. Matt and I decided to take an afternoon bike ride to the park (yay!) and I checked the mail on the way out. I got 2 packages (double yay!). One was from a girl in DC who sent me a cloth case for my knitting needles and the other was a b-day gift from my Aunt Robin. She sent me 2 books: Through Painted Deserts, by Donald Miller and Firstlight by Sue Monk Kidd. I can't wait to read the Miller book, it's about a cross country road trip in a VW camper van - the same thing that Matt and I did this summer! Thanks Robin!!
The bike ride was really great. We rode to a park on the green belt, with autumn leaves crunching under our tires. One of the things I love best about Davis is all the parks. It seems like there's one on every block!
When we got home I finished up my first week of doing a drawing a day. It's something I saw that this wonderful artist did. I started with simple fruits and vegetables, something really familiar to me.
