This week has been quite the cold one! As most of y'all know from some of my posts from this week I spent the weekend in Auburn and had an absolute blast (read about it here)! Coming from Auburn back to Furman was a bit frigid. We had a snow day here on Tuesday which was a nice break from reality aside from the fact that I had to watch 6 hours worth of documentaries about global warming. Aside from that I have been spending a lot of time in the library and unfortunately it seems that that will be pretty typical for the next few weeks until spring break.
Furman looked absolutely beautiful covered in the snow (as it always does) and even today when I was walking to class I noticed that there is still a ton of it left on the other side of the lake which even happens to be frozen!
I was supposed to be going skiing this weekend but unfortunately the weather is looking kind of terrible for that. I am not so sure how fun skiing in frozen rain would be for anyone.
Lent started this past Wednesday as many of you are probably aware and instead of giving something up I decided to take something on. This year I decided that each day of lent I would read a different psalm. I thought this could be a fun way to ensure that I have some quiet time each day. When I was still at home my mom always came up with really cool ideas of what we should do as a family for lent. My favorite was when we decided to have Meatless Mondays and Wheatless Wednesdays. It forced us to try out some new recipes and was really cool to do.
Next week is Kappa Delta's big / little week so I will finally be getting a little! I am super excited and am dying to find out who I have already (we find out on Sunday). I remember this being so much fun last year and I know this year will be just as much of a blast since I'll get to be the one sneaking around and leaving gifts! I'll try to remember to take photos of what I give and share them with y'all next week!
As for what's been on my radar…
I saw this scarf on Pinterest yesterday and immediately repinned it. It's cashmere and wool and looks so cozy and warm!
