yesterday there was snow in the city. most of it had melted by the time i got outside on a walk to the post office. there were still little piles of it on tree branches and stairs and rooftops though, and it was neat to have a day of winter in the midst of autumn. after the post office, i did a little christmas shopping for robert & sipped a hot chocolate while walking home slowly. maybe i say it too much, but i don't mind: i love living in the city.
