You know that feeling you get after you worked hard and accomplished something? Well, today I got that feeling after I finished a 5k at my Church. Three point one miles of straight jogging really warmed me up in Minnesota's autumn weather! But in the end, it was worth it. That feeling of accomplishment made my day.

Caramel Apples! I just came home from my friend's house to see a delicious caramel apple waiting for me on the counter. My parents picked it up at the orchard, and now it's all mine! (Actually I did share it...) And it was so good! It made my day!
In other news, today is officially the last day of summer for me. Tomorrow is the start of 11th grade. Although this fact did not make my day, I'll be glad to see all my friends again. Wish me luck!

Well, not really. On Friday, we dropped my sister off at college. She seems to really like it there, and we hooked up Skype, but it's going to be weird at home for me. Now, I'm an only child. Well, besides our dog Maggie, of course. It was sad to see her go, but you know what made my day? I get the car!
Anyway, I'm sure I'll miss her. Then again, I'm sure being at a great college will make her day as well.

Hey, my fellow bloggers, today is September 1st! You know what that means? Pretty trees and fall leaves...and hot tea...and seasons of Glee! And...and...okay, I was on a roll there with the whole "rhyming" thing. Anyway, I love autumn. I love the perfect temperature, the crisp air, raking up piles of leaves for my dog and I to jump in. I can't wait! Happy September, my followers.
Have you ever just watched squirrels? I have. And today, it made my day. I watched two squirrels in my yard as they played a little game of what I would classify as squirrel "tag." One would stand perfectly still, gripping the tree, as the other was on the ground, ready to race it up the tree. The ran in circles and twitched their little fuzzy tails around. It was so adorable! Next time you're outside, take a few seconds to watch God's creatures. You never know, it might make your day.
