Happy for the unseasonally sunny day, I tried to take advantage of the nice weather and go for a run in the park.
Unfortunately – and not surprisingly – the sun’s brief cameo was over before I’d finished breakfast and soon the rain thwarted my plans for a run. Instead, I ended up staying in, doing homework and watching way too many episodes of Prison Break.
That show is addictive but I digress.
Sometime around 4pm I started to feel restless and decided to take a trip to the Natural History Museum.
I reached the museum about an hour before it closed so I didn’t get to see everything. What I did see was pretty incredible so I’ll have to make sure to go back when I have more time to explore the place.
During Christmas an ice skating rink is set up next to the museum. It was still drizzling by the time I got there but a few brave souls were still skating. I definitely want to give it a try at some point. Look how pretty.
I’m glad I forced myself to get out of the house despite the fact that rainy weather makes me want to crawl under the covers with a hot cup of cocoa. But I can’t let the weather dictate my days’ activities. I have to make each day count even if that means I get a little wet from time to time.
Besides, museums are free here, there’s absolutely no reason for me not to take advantage of that.
