Buttons are busted, we're decorated

Today has been a nice but busy day. I got up early (well, earlier than I'd have liked) because I had to drive back from Edmonton to Camrose before my linear algebra class. After class and lunch I checked my mail box to find that I had received a lovely care package from my older sister in the mail. She sent me a sweet card a bunch of fun goodies, including a ton of my favourite tea and a book I've been wanting to read for ages (Tazo Orange Blossom and "Swing Low" by Miriam Toews, respectively). I love getting things in the mail and I especially love how thoughtful my sister is. I saw one of the campus counsellors today and it went well. Counselling has been quite beneficial to me in the past, but it's never been something I liked. I'll probably see him more once exam anxiety sets in, and for now it was just nice to get acquainted.

Right after my appointment I went on a lovely walk, which is where I took today's outfit photos. Don't let the snow fool you, today was quite warm. So warm, in fact, that I had to take of my cardigan for a bit while walking. On the same note, it is finally warm enough to go bare-legged. Today was the second day in the past week I haven;t worn tights, though thankfully this time I was smart enough to wear bike shorts. Chub rub hurts! Spring is coming slowly but surely and the snow is melting as fast as it knows how. I felt a huge child-like desire to go puddle jumping. Although it'd actually be more like wading considering the size of a lot of the puddles. I remember as a child we practically swam in them! Puddle-induced nostalgia aside, my walk included buying some pears for an art project, owl-themed chocolates, going to the bank, lemonade, and buying some stickers for scrapbooking. I spent the rest of the day working on art. My final portfolio is due Wednesday at midnight and I don't feel at all ready! I certainly have time to work on it though, and hopefully I'll be confident in the work I submit. I honestly could of done more work today, but I've been super tired and irritable all day (not to mention an awful headache). Thankfully today was lovely in spite of all that.
