Halloween, Winter Arrives
Right after Emmy, Laura and I returned from a very whirlwind trip to Oregon, we had Halloween festivities here in Kodiak. I tried to make sure that Emmy especially had a great time on Halloween, even though with Jeremy gone I felt more like staying home. I even got in to the spirit of it by wearing a costume to work for the first time ever. Thankfully the Greek Goddess costume I borrowed from my sister was basically like a pretty dress. I don't think it would have been as easy to wear a pumpkin costume while sitting at my desk.
Right after Halloween we got our first snow of the season and overnight it now feels like winter. I have been burning the wood stove each night, and each morning I let Emmy cross off another day on the calendar. Tomorrow Jeremy gets off of the canyon. A few days later he will be arriving home on the airplane. Emmy is beside herself with excitement. It has been a long trip.
