Not so Secret Garden

Boots and thick tights means I've officially accepted it's getting colder.  It was gray all day long, and now I'm snug as a bug in a rug with no motivation to get out from under my blanket.  Luckily my work schedule is varied, so I can experience the little sunshine that's left while its out.  When I used to work a regular office job I would get up in the dark, go to work in a box, and go home in the dark.  And this is why I won't have a typical job.

It was 40 degrees out when I took these photos, which will seem like a tropical paradise in a month, but I could hardly feel my fingers by the end of it.  I'm at the vegetable garden at Cornell.  I picked the outfit and the location without considering them together, but the colors ended up being very similar.  Grey and brown make up the local landscape now that all the leaves are on the ground.  Did you go to school with a vegetable garden on campus?  I definitely did not.  NYC real estate rates didn't make that a collegiate reality for me.
