Looking forward to...


We're wrapping up the first leg of our adventure on the road, plannning to swing through the homeland before we head south for winter. We'll vote, the van could use an oil change, Aslin's got a dentist appointment, we're out of organic rice and we lost our wool blanket. Along with all the practical "to-dos", we're looking forward to...

Ukiah- I want to relax, get my japanese book, pick up my new game, visit Clearwater, spend time with Shell and Cutie. Actually, there's a lot I want to do.

Aslin- I want to hang out with my friends, see the relatives, visit our pets and change my ear rings.

Brad- Seeing family tops my list, especially lil' Grace, who's birthday we missed. Visiting friends, changing the wiper blades on the van, and having a really good cup of coffee (Vivaci?) are on the list too. I've been wearing the same four shirts for months, so I'm looking forward to changing my gear. It'll be good to catch my breath, take a moment to reflect on where we've been, what we've done, and what's next.

Nora- Aside from spending time with everyone I love and miss, I'm thinking about food. La Libela, Moonlight Cafe, El Gallito, Hi-Spot, Elysian pumpking beer, and delivering a pizza to Joe. I'm also curious to check in on my own garden- did the kale do well? Any tomatoes still hanging on? And books. Dawn, thanks for letting me borrow CoaEM (the best most poorly written book ever). We read everything we brought with us, plus a few 30 cent selections from the library in Kaslo, so I'm planning trips to Elliot Bay, 3rd Place and Left Bank. It could take days.

See you soon?

(Special thanks to Bunny and Lonny for hosting the pumpkin carving festival and photos!)

Yes! We'll check with sifu about stopping by Seattle Kajukenbo. Sections of some forms may have been forgotten- but I think everyone remembers how to visit.

Ethiopian, vietnamese, cinnamon rolls... yum! Thanks M, K and B!

I think I posted my comment in the wrong place (so, in case you didn't notice, I remain significantly tech-challenged). Ukiah, I love your Halloween suit. Brad, quite a beard. Aslin, what a witchy costume! Nora, what can I say--it will be grand to see you all. Love, Mom/Grandma (aka techno-peasant luddite)
