yellow light

I love the sunlight that comes in through my yellow curtains. It is so warm. Every morning seems full of sunshine.

In a theme of gold, birch leaves made a beautifully patterened carpet where they scattered the ground in round perfection.

The katsura trees shine gold as well and all the light that falls through them holds summer in the middle of autumn.

Get up this morning and my underwear matches my outfit. Booyah!
Today is going to be a good day.

If you want some...

I have a four step program to deal with my university's administration.

Step 1: Consult admin about the possibilities of a course of action I would like to take, and how to approach it.
Step 2: Do what they suggest.
Step 3: Find out it didn't work.
Step 4: Argue.

I get stuck on step four a lot. So today I went down to campus and spent a merry hour looping between steps two to four. On the way home I stopped to write an irritated email to one of the departments asking them to sort out the department I was irritated at, and I sat down on a flight of stairs and found fifty cents!

If the forces that be are going to pay me when I have to write these emails, it's not so bad.
So I continued on my journey, and turned on the music on my phone. With the volume down low I held it up to my ear boom-box style and rocked out to my own personal soundtrack all the way home.

My smarties fell into my hand in a soft sunshiney rainbow of colours.

Creature Comforts

The sweet taste of chocolate chips melting in my mouth, the warmth of apple mint tea heating my tounge, the soft fur of Princess Dragon as she purrs and wheezes on my lap, and the soreness of shoulders nicely worked, all these things I am grateful for.
