These Few Days

Strolls down the beach
Hot chocolate and bacon at the pier
Drive to the farther pier 
Search for shark teeth
Watch fast fish
Home late
Go shopping in the most uninteresting way possible
Supper out (Italian buffet)
Swimming in the ocean
Feeling crappy
Longest shower ever (felt soo good)
Sand castle building
Stickey Fingers
Feel worse
Watch the ocean try to wreck our sandcastle (took too long, so we went back upstairs)

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is such a lovely thing. I love the process of making it. And I love everyone's reaction when I give them a huge slice of pie with a large helping of whipped cream.

Brought my old stuffed bear out of storage today. I sat him at the piano and proceeded to give him his first piano lesson. Yes, I do feel some embarrassment when I admit that, but I figure it's a little more natural than practicing giving piano lessons to air... Suddenly, about ten minutes into the lesson, I realized with great embarrassment that someone, that my sister, was doing something in the next room. And I had neglected to close the door to the rec room. She came in and began exclaiming, as typical sisters do, how what I was doing was "The most adorable thing ever". She took my cellphone and proceeded to take a picture of Snoozums at the piano. Oh boy. 
A little while later my mother came down to the rec room. "Awww, it's Snoozums! I miss Snoozums! He's so cute! Awww!"
Maybe this wasn't such a great idea.

Almost Done

Realized today that I've got only 11 days of work left. Kind I of sad to think about... Though I will enjoy the extra time.
