I’m not sure if the weather has anything to do with my mood. It gets dark so early that I am reluctant to go out when the clock strikes 4pm.
I was supposed to go for the volunteer support meeting and I was dragging my feet as the hour approached. I wanted to stay home, in my warm abode. When the train came, I reached into my pocket and realised that I did not bring along my T-card and I turned back, not to go home to get the card but to stay at home for the evening.
I dislike the cold weather and definitely darkness. Since we are going to be here for the next one year, I guess I would have to think positively.
I think I should set myself some goals (random thought); it’s time to think about goals for 2011!
Cutting hubs' hair...
maybe nutella cupcakes can cheer me up?
Thanksgiving is round the corner and we joined the FOCUS group for a day-trip out to Plimoth Plantation to learn more about the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag natives.
It would be ideal to go on your own (1 hour-drive from Boston) since you would need to stick to a certain timing if you go with a big group. The wonderful thing about this place or attraction is that we are not just going there to view the exhibits; there are people, descendants of the natives and actors role-playing the pilgrims. So, it is rather interactive and you get to ask burning questions about the past. They also have sites that replicate the scene of yonks ago.
I like it and would love it if we have more time. There is a quiz of about 7 pages worth of questions for each group to complete. We teamed up with A & J but being the slackers that we were, they did most of the job. So, be reminded that if you want to win, don’t select us as your members (hehehhe). But in the end, we won! Hah!
The trip ended with a Thanksgiving dinner in church. Wonderful! And now I have a better understanding of Thanksgiving. =)
