Last night Matthew stayed up until 4am, reliving his college days with World Civilization IV (a classic shoot-em-up-take-over-the-entire-globe computer game), so tonight at around 6:30 p.m. he was ready for bed. After a day of worship team practice, shopping, and California Pizza Kitchen, I have to admit that I was pretty low energy as well. (Yes, sadly we're actually more like 80 year olds than the rambunctious twenty-somethings we're supposed to be...) What to do?
Can you believe it's November? I feel like we were just lamenting over the 100 degree heat, refusing to use the oven, and worrying about Numi overheating in our field of a backyard.. But suddenly the leaves are that wonderful mixture of golds, red, and dark purples, and the air is crisp and smells like cinnamony-firewood . (Okay, in reality I think the smell is actually emanating from multiple controlled burns in my neighborhood, but whatever.) I have tried out a few new soup recipes, baked some cookies, and actually turned the heat on! Halloween 2009 was quite a bit of fun: our Waldo/Wanda outfits got rave reviews, we handed out candy at the Donner house with Kath, and watched the timeless classic Hocus Pocus. Numi wore a lovely orange T-Shirt, and loved every minute of it. :)
Here are some other pictures from our recent adventures:
Thanks again Josh for letting us crash at your place on our marathon trip to SB!
