Great Mood

I don't know what it is about today, but I am in the best mood. Nothing really spectacular happened. I think it is the weather.

Yesterday, my friend Kate and I rode bikes for about 2 1/2 hours. It was SO wonderful, just cruising around the city, going off on winding trails, catching some rays, and laughing at dogs, ducks, and whatever else crossed our way. When I got home, I fixed lunch and ate it in a baseball chair on my front lawn. Later that day, I went running just to spend more time outside. It was great.

Today was great weatherwise again. I went to class this morning, then took a long nap. It stormed while I slept, though I heard the beginning of it. Then it was amazingly sunny outside, with all types of cool clouds and a perfect breeze. I went to my afternoon class praising God for beauty. I came out of my class to see an amazing sunset. It was the kind where the clouds don't even look real, and it had all sorts of gleaming oranges and bright pinks. Wow. I just kept thinking that over and over. I went to church, and when I left, there was a refreshing crispness to the air. Yay for fall.

Good job, God.

On another note, I became really excited about going back to work tomorrow while I was sitting in class today. This is going to make me sound like a huge dork. Oh well, it is true. In one class, we were sharing a quick synopsis of our personal philosophy of nursing, represented by an art form. (I can hear those of you who really know me snickering now. Sarah? Art? Ha!) Anyway, I was really encouraged listening to everyone share what was really important to them in nursing. I know it's impossible to live up to all those ideals every day, but just to know people were thinking about them and had the ability to verbalize them gave me confidence in my co-workers. I had to write my philosophy some 15 million times in undergrad, but I never really got to hear anyone else's. I'm excited about trying harder to actualize some of what I claim to be my philosophy. See, I told you I'm a dork.

I'm just in a good mood. Maybe it was the peanut butter and banana sandwich that was my dinner.

It's official. Check out the new plates on my car AND the new sideview mirror. It was a victim of streetside parking.

Dorky or not, I love reading your blog. It makes my day, or night in this case.
