we made gingerbread houses. it was good family bonding filler. this is me with my cousins - we were a team! later the family at large played disney's scene it. good times, although my family lost to the cousins. the best part of tday 2006 was going outside at sunset with the niece and helping her slide and swing in the cold. the moon was just a sliver and the nephew joined us for a bit lying on the grass and commenting that it was cold. very nice bit of nature and family in one.

I went to m & s w this morning - what a kick! I loved the music and the spoken words. It had a patriotic theme, in honor of veteran's day. People were crying. I was amazed at how many veterans were in attendance. I secretly took this photo during the final number. Can you see the red white and blue?

The moment you commit and quit holding back, all sorts of unforeseen
incidents, meetings and material assistance will rise up to help you.
The pure and simple act of commitment is a powerful magnet all its own.

I almost forgot - while at al's looking for hair advice I got to see her old furnace. And I mean old. It used to burn coal. It's from 1910 I believe. It's been converted to gas. It's huge - straight from a ray bradbury story or something. Here she is with the door open to the gaping jaws of hell. too bad it doesn't properly show up in my poor camera phone photo.

okay, here are a couple photos from the gorgeous hike in the rain. i think we're a bit blurry due to all the mist in the air. seriously you could look out at the whiteness and see it just all blurry like moving around - like a microscope or something.

This morning I woke up to seattle weathe - which would be fine except we had a hike planned to celebrate my friend's birthday. There was some debate but we went anyway. We chose wisely. We were wet and our shoes muddy but it was just gorgeous! We saw yellow and pink leaf carpets and walked through sheets of clouds and mists. It must have been a few miles - the trail went forever. We hiked to elephant rock up mueller park canyon. What a great experience! Hopefully i'll get photos soon that I can post later.
