Let it Snow

Bethel's first serious snowfall is perfect for the holidays!

I forgot to open my shades this morning until an hour about after I woke up. When I did, I was thrilled to see a thick coating of snow on the cars and roofs around my building.

Snow, alongside vinyl records and craft beer, is one of my favorite things. This is probably because my parents dropped me onto a pair of skis when I was three. (I snowboard now. I don't think they've ever quite forgiven me for that.) This is my first real snow in Bethel. I know it snowed on November 7th, but it wasn't as heavy and thick as this lovely snow.

The plan of action to celebrate the fluffy goodness? Throw on my duck boots and walk over to Molten Java for a hot chai and great music. They always have the best music playing. Hopefully I can speed through my work and get there before it gets dark.

Sadly, I have not been able to continue exploring Bethel as much as I'd hoped lately. Work has been crazy and holiday gift buying is wiping me out! I plan to change that this weekend when my good friend visits and I show him around our lovely town. Where should we go that really typifies the holiday season in Bethel?

My job with Bethel Tutoring hasn't started yet, but I'm still preparing like crazy. I had a great SAT tutor when I was in high school, so I hope to be as useful to the high school students of Bethel. I'm especially looking forward to the one-on-one writing tutoring I may be doing.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I spent mine in Vermont with my family. (They let me do my laundry there. For free! My clothes still smell vaguely of turkey, in the best way possible. Aren't parents the greatest?) I'll be going up in two weekends to celebrate Chanukah with them as well!

Now let's all get out there and enjoy the snow!

How were the tunes at Molten Java today?
