This was a good weekend. Usually I love the fall time change because we get an extra hour of sleep. Saturday night we went to bed sort of late for us, and then Tim was awake at around 4-ish and I was awake around 5-ish. But that's ok.
The weather was really beautiful--sparking sun, almost no wind, and pretty warm (high 50s both days). Sunday we took the kayaks out for about an hour and a half on the Big Nestucca River. We saw a sea lion pop its head up here and there, which is always charming (the Nestucca river empties into the Nestucca Bay which empties into the ocean, so it's not unusual that we see them).
We didn't have any Trick or Treaters last night but that's not surprising. We saw the neighborhood kids all dressed up at the end of the day (there are four, maybe) and they all went somewhere so I'm sure they had fun.
I did some work on this drop stitch shawl (the stitches aren't dropped yet, obviously).
I also did some new beads. I tried to make these smaller, and I'm going to do some necklaces with multiple beads.
These pink and white ones have a special meaning--they are from a card that was sent to me from my twinnie Kim.
I'm reading two good books, first "Rachel to the Rescue" by Elinor Lipman, a fun book about DC politics (believe me, it is fun). Elinor Lipman has been one of my favorites for a long time. Plain Bad Heroines is an interesting book that has me intrigued. It is about the making of a scary movie at one level, and about a bunch of other stuff that I haven't even been able to parse out on other levels.
Finally, we have enjoyed watching the moon set.
