today i left the apartment to face the world in my polka dot blue rain boots and my nice new (to me) red umbrella. turns out the most i needed them was for the drizzly walk to the metro. the rest of the day was balmy and warm, although incredibly blustery.
the wind blew all the clouds away, so i took the long way home and walked in the sun. i sat on some steps by the bus stop and paged through catcher in the rye, which i'm re-reading. holden makes me smile. john mayer accompanied most of my day.
tomorrow i've booked an afternoon of pampering, which i could not be more excited about. a valentine's gift certificate is finally being put to use. and then it's the weekend! more apartment hunting :/ and hopefully some nice springy weekend weather. and
since we ordered pizza tonight i have high aspirations for dinner tomorrow night: roast chicken, zuchinni and mushroom risotto, and a lovely glass of red.
