Today's Happenings

Things that happened today: 

1. It's December 4 and I spent part of the day reading on a lawn chair on the communal deck. I will never get used to summer in December. I actually had to move my chair to the shade within about 20 minutes. I know my Minnesota friends and family are going to hate me for saying this but IT'S TOO HOT. 
2. Apparently there was a small earthquake in a Melbourne suburb today. I saw this on Twitter and love it so much. Needless to say, I didn't feel said earthquake. 
3. We got a Christmas tree! Sort of. Since we don't really have room for a tree, not to mention we have exactly zero storage space for the 11 months it's not in use, we decided to go small this year. Really, really small. Here's the $3 battery operated light-up tree I got yesterday, with my hand next to it for scale. Note that my hands are the size of a first grader's at best.  
I'm actually impressed it came with the star on top and everything. 
Super high-tech. Only about half of it lights up. 

4. I GOT FLOOR TICKETS TO TAYLOR SWIFT'S 1989 CONCERT in December 2015!!!! I already set a count down on my will be epic. 


  1. There was an earthquake today? Whaaaat?

    1. Apparently it was the strongest one in 50 years. That being said, I don't think many people actually felt it!

  2. Jealous of the tickets! Love the Christmas tree!

  3. Thanks for your post. Your Christmas tree is very cute.....hope it continues to light up. Your earthquake???? Glad you are able to be OUTSIDE!! It's 18 here today.

    1. It's about 22 here today...Celcius that is ;).
