Columbus Day Weekend

It has been a couple of days since our last update!  The weather here has cooled off quite a bit, and my father has finally decided to make a fire in the fireplace.  I think it drives my mother a little crazy, but it keeps us warm!

The last two days I've worked full days, while Jesse has gotten a four day weekend for Columbus Day.  He's been enjoying his time off and will probably be working longer days most of the rest of the week.  Things at the jewelry store have been rather slow, which leaves everyone wondering when things are going to be picking up.  Truly it seems as though it's both a blessing and a curse.  In a way there aren't a ton of people in the store to make you want to pull your hair out, but at the same time it makes time go SO much slower.  Besides no money = no hours.  It does seem kind of scary that the store isn't allotted many hours -- and yes I'm going to say it -- especially this close to Christmas.  Needless to say, I'm not going to be working much, if any at all, for the next three weeks.  I am very happy with that though, especially with Jesse leaving soon.

Jesse is going crabbing tomorrow, which should be an interesting experience for him.  I'm sure he'll be taking pictures and I will post them here when he does.  Tonight Jesse and I went over to a friends house for dinner, with the specialty being teriyaki chicken.  Jesse raves about it constantly, and I will agree it is very good.  And, of course, they wanted to feed him some before he's gone.  We love visiting with them, they are great friends to have here in Washington.

Tuesday I have my first coffee scheduled with 5th Brigade.  I'm a little nervous, but excited!  I'll update how that goes!

That's all for now!!
