(I kind of hate myself for that title. Too corny.)
My new friend, Jessica, who I met through Fall Fashion Week is doing 30 days of gratitude. Since November is Thanksgiving and National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), I decided to join in.
I can post for 30 days for NaBloPoMo and focus on being thankful. Done and done.
Well, at least it sounds simple in theory. As I told my mom, at least this way my posting will be guided somewhat. I'm not sure that every post will be devoted to something I'm grateful for. Who knows, I may have a really good story to share with you all. I will, at least, include it in every post.
I know some people are partaking in No(shopping)vember or No(eating out)vember, but I'm pretty sure that's not realistic for me. Also, I won't be doing 30 for 30 out of fear, but I will be following along that madness for funsies.
Or die trying.
So today I'm thankful for my rain coat. It poured this morning. The phrase "cats and dogs" comes to mind.
In fact, my hair was straight (I'm just about at the 72 hours mark from getting it dyed on Friday and can't wait to shampoo.) and now it most definitely is not. I had a hat on so I'm left with greasy roots and curly, frizzy hair.
(This gratitude stuff is already harder than I thought. I get too distracted, I think. Actually, that was just a demonstration of how wet it was here, except for that whole greasy roots thing.)
So I'm really thankful to my rain coat.
Especially since those of us from the Pacific Northwest don't use umbrellas, which really is a somewhat silly statement to make, but I guess we must stand for something.
My clothes are dry. Yay raincoat! Around here, a raincoat is pretty much a necessity.
