Today was such a beautiful day! On Mondays and Wednesdays, my mom's and I are both downtown for the day-- her at work, me at school. So instead of wasting gas, we get to carpool on those two days. It's so wonderful! I wake up early with my mom and we head out the door at 6:45. It's so nice to leave the house that early. The air smells like rain, everything is quiet, damp and dark. I love it!! This early morning time is also great one-on-one time with my mom. With our busy schedules a day can easily pass us by without our even seeing each other. It's so nice to have a half hour of uninterrupted "catching up" time.
Another great thing about carpooling with my mom to school/work twice a week is it gives me an opportunity to explore Portland. I generally get out of school about an hour and a half earlier than my mom. I love it, because I take the street car to an interesting looking stop downtown, get off and explore for a good hour before I hop back on the street car, get off at Everett and walk the seven blocks to my mom's work. Portland's beauty and delightful uniqueness never ceases to amaze me!
Anywho.. I suppose there was nothing special about today.. I just really enjoyed it. Hopefully Tuesday is just as great!
