it was the first snow of the season on saturday,
my 1st first snow in pittsburgh.
it was especially awesome because my brother was here.
it was one of those classic moments where i opened the blinds
and the, like, 25% chance of snow turned into a steady stream of big, fat flakes.
they only lasted until the late afternoon,
but it still added a wintry, adventurous feel to the tour i gave jordan
of all my favorite spots in oakland:
certain benches in the cathedral of learning,
the bamboo garden in the public libary,
the mary e. schenley memorial fountain
(that jordan announced is now his favorite thing in the city),
the chairs by the window on the ground floor of hillman,
and the incredibly wide, cement steps outside posvar.
we spent the rest of the weekend
eating cheese puffs + pizza, and drinking cheap wine,
baking + shopping + watching a lot (i mean A LOT) of TV,
but those couple of hours on saturday
when the rest city was inside avoiding the sudden snow
and we were rushing from building to building
as our hair and shoes got wet and the sky stayed gray
were probably my favorite part of the weekend.
i'm officially psyched for winter.
how was your weekend?
