Goodbye October

I fear I've been neglecting my blog. It's sad when your dog has more exciting things to blog about than you do.
Our week has been fairly uneventful. The excitement level at work is pretty high right now due to Halloween. If you work at a school then you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. It's crazy and impossible to keep the kids focused but so much fun.
Tonight was the first night of my belly-dancing class.
I loved being challenged
I loved working my muscles that don't usually get any attention
I loved laughing at myself and my ungraceful dancing ability
I wonder how Molly felt about the class? Maybe she'll blog about it =)

Sunshine & Bagels

It's been a long week. I can tell that winter is setting in. Adam and I have both been exhausted and it seems the only thing we have energy for is a movie at the end of the day. I find myself wishing for sunshine and warmth and daydreaming about our summer in Australia. Oh how I'd love to be back here right now....

...kissing my honey along the river....not caring about whether I remembered to wash my hair that morning....wearing sandals....reading a book in the grass...and not having a care in the world.

However, it's October in Juneau and we're quickly losing daylight. The rain and chill in the air make us look for things to do inside rather than outside.

Here's a little snippet of our evening last night....

Start with the dough & shape them....

Boil them & bake them...

Get there...

I discovered the UAS bookstore a few years ago and it has become one of my favorite places to shop when looking for unique Christmas or birthday presents. Most of their merchandise is UAS clothing, books and school supplies but they do have a section of their store devoted to Fair Trade items from around the world. I found these butterfly wing earrings on my last trip out there and have been wearing them nonstop. If you haven't been out there you should go. I guarantee you will find some amazing suprises!

Out of the box

Adam and I both love looking at house decorations that are original and unique. This weekend we went on a scavenger hunt looking for people who dared to make their house different from the status quo.
I love that you would put an 8 ball in your yard...
I love that you would build a wall out of something you are passionate about...
I love that you have such a great sense of humor...
I love that you care about your garage...a place that is normally overlooked and forgotten...

So beautiful...

While traveling last summer I noticed how the people in Australia loved their hometown. They seemed to be just as in awe of the beauty surrounding them as we were. Today Adam and I looked at our town with "tourists" eyes, searching for the beauty that people travel hundreds and thousands of miles to see.

A little mother-daughter time..

What a great weekend we've had with mom in town. The time went by way too quickly! We spent our weekend perusing the old books at Friends of the Library, walking Rosco, watching movies and catching up.

Here are some pictures of our walk at the Airport Trail. A favorite walk with a favorite person =)

Notice the glacier in the background? We had to do this one a couple times to get that in there-So enjoy the glacier!

Mom's here for a bit....

Mom came to town on Wednesday night for a little visit. She spent Thursday and Friday at the school with us. Thursday she hung out with me all day and helped in my room. On Friday she spent the day with Mr. Berkey and listened to his rambling nonsense.We've been taking lots of walks with Rosco and went out for some Thai food together. It's nice having the Momster around for a bit!
