The weather is Dresden has been so nice!
It’s been 60s and 70s each day that I’ve been here,
which, believe it or not, seems pretty chilly to me.
Keep in mind, though, that this past summer I spent 5 weeks in a place
that ranged from 110 – 116 degrees Fahrenheit on a daily basis
so 60 degrees feels like I’m living at the North Pole.
(It’s nothing a cardigan and circle scarf can’t fix, though.)
The other day, my friend Hannah and I laid in the grass at a nearby park
and read The Hunger Games (her : book #2, me : book #3*).
“This is so peaceful and perfect”, I thought to myself,
as I shut my eyes and drifted off to sleep.
When I opened my eyes 5-10 minutes later,
there was a spider, approximately 1/2 an inch away from me,
crawling toward my face.
Let’s just say that that afternoon’s serenity session in the park
came to a very abrupt halt.
All was made right in the world, however,
with a quick walk home and a Project Runway marathon,
which, if you must know,
was made complete by a Peanut-butter-and-Nutella related snack.
In conclusion, life in Dresden is shaping up to be just fine.
Just fine, indeed.
