It's one of those sweater days

via
I haven't worn a sweater in I don't know how long, at least since last year. I don't like most sweaters, mostly because usually they're itchy and sometimes big and other times just ugly. But today, I looked outside and saw the snowing falling, and I found myself wanting to wear a sweater. Well, one of those old sweaters or sweatshirts that I always keep in the wooden dresser. So I started digging through the drawers, looking for one that I would want to wear. (I did, after all, have things to do today out in public...) And then I found it.

It was actually kind of cute. And it wasn't overly huge. And it wasn't ugly. It was green with this cool design towards the top wrapping around that was made of like this dark red and cream. I slipped it on, and I found that because of the turtleneck I was wearing with it - I don't know how long it's been since I've worn one of those, either - it wasn't itchy. I liked this. A sweater. I was suddenly feeling poetic or something. ;)

Despite the snow, I decided to wear my Bearpaw boots. Oh, just 'cause I wanted to. I wasn't feeling overly imaginative, so a ponytail for the hair. I went upstairs and realized that, obviously, it was really cold. So, time for a hat - like my cute knitted/crochet/something of the sort hat that I always love wearing. And why not the matching scarf? Sure. Let's do this thing. I put it all on, and I felt like I was in a book or something as I stepped out in the snow in my rubberboots.

Thanks for everybody whose praying for everybody that I mentioned in the post before this one. I saw a friend today who knew the person who died and she was pretty sad, so please pray for her especially, too. Thanks so much, guys. You're amazing. <3

So, today, I went off to this class that I'm taking with some friends of mine and afterwards book club. I'd already read the new book that we got - it's called Fever 1793, by Laurie Halse Anderson - so guess what?? I GOT THE NEW MISSING BOOK!!!!!! YES!!!!!!! OK, OK, a little explanation. (Because what on earth is the Missing book? Like a book that's missing?) So have any of you heard of The Missing Series by Margaret Peterson Haddix? (Shout out to her, by the way, because all of her books that I've read so far are amazing and always keep me interested, at least pretty well.) Well, anyway, it's amazing awesome. :) And I just got the new one from my book club leader! (Shout out to her, too. She's awesome. :)) It's called Risked, and I'm really excited to start reading it. :) (Oh yeah, I don't remember if I told you [I'm pretty sure I did], but I've been an awful reader of late. And guess what? It's ended! [Whatever weird phase was on me. How about a either-designing-or-blogging-or-work-or-something-else-instead-of-reading phase??? That'd be about right... just another reason I need a new posting&designing schedule... =P] I actually got about halfway into a book last night. It's called A Year Without Autumn [by Liz Kessler] and it's pretty OK so far... anyway...) Which hopefully I'll start tomorrow. Anyway. :)

And then we went off to bell choir, which was fun. We're going to have a performance at a Christmas kick-off program hosted by some churches (I believe), at which I'm also going to be doing that play that I told you guys about. So I'm going to be pretty busy in the next few days/weeks. :) I'm excited, though. It should be lots of fun. :)

What have you been doing lately? Anything fun planned for Thanksgiving? What about Christmas? :)

Talk to you all later... God bless! :)

Be a hero,
Anna

P.S. Anybody else heard ThePianoGuy's new song? It's AWESOME! :) (It's called Arwen's Vigil. You can check it out on YouTube, if you want! :))
