Long Weekend!

Start of the mudflats at the marsh yesterday. I didn't bring my camera on our hike today, which turned out to be a great one! About 8 miles total. We got to a great beach where we were totally alone. No other footprints even, though there were some tracks left by elk. It's been getting colder here, but so far this weekend it's been nice for walking and hiking. And tomorrow is a holiday. I love three-day weekends.

I have been thinking about Tiff, Shane, and Caldon a lot though. I know it's been tough, but it seems like things are getting a bit better, and hopefully they will continue to... Still can't wait to see them in less than a week. And I'm really glad mom will be going out to Boston the day that Lorene has to leave. Lorene has been great, and I'm sure mom will be too! All I can do right now is send positive, loving thoughts their way...

A Thursday

 Broccoli cheddar potato soup. I made it (not Adam), as hard as that may be to believe. And it came from the recipe book Tiff and Shane gave Adam for his birthday. Pretty good!

Kiki. Not today though, it's been rainy and cold. It even hailed!

It's already getting dark

and it's only 5 o'clock.

Went to a new beach this weekend. Biggest waves I've seen around here. It was pretty cool, but then a dog got pulled out. I actually thought it had drowned it was under so long, but its owner kept diving in, and eventually they both came up ok. It was scary.

Finished the puzzle Tiff gave me for my birthday! It was a fun one. :)

And post-Halloween/Birthday flowers from dad. They're really nice, and I think the Halloween colored Asiatic Lilies are great! Plus, there's a cute balloon that isn't shown in the picture. The cats, Kiki in particular, are interested in the flowers (and the ribbon attached to the vase) as well.

I also got a Nook from Adam, which is totally awesome! :)

No trick-or-treaters, but I wasn't expecting any.

Thanks dad, mom, Tiff and Shane, Dane, Ed and Lisa, Lorene, Jeffra, and everyone else for the birthday gifts and wishes!
