A nice week

After the hectic week we had last week, a slower week has been very much appreciated for us!

With chilly mornings, but no appreciable snow, we're easing into winter on College Street. More snow is falling in the mountains but nothing on the Valley floor thus far.

The week in review

What a week! We've been busy at school, church, and home all week without a break. Still, it has been a good week with good weather and good health all around!

A busy weekend (and it's only Saturday!)

First measureable snow of the season

Charles' first attempt at a teapot
Our weekend began last night at the dessert "Friend-raiser" for Intermountain (the children's organization) held at Corvallis UMC.

We woke this morning to the first measureable snow of the season, just enough to be pretty but not enough to be trouble with. This morning we returned to Corvallis UMC for the Adult Convo, a taster of church camp activities for adults, presented by the youth. It was a lot of fun for everyone!

This afternoon, Charles made a quick trip to campus to get in a wee bit of work in. His efforts at a teapot have yielded only one worth keeping but he's happy with what it is to this point.

Damp day, fun evening



After a damp day, featuring about 1/4" of snow, We had a fun evening at Corvallis UMC tonight where we supported the Intermountain "Friend-raiser."



A taste of winter

 
 
A taste of winter was waiting for Charles in Missoula this morning with strong winds coming out of Hellgate Canyon and a dusting of snow on the ground. Work began on his next project in the painting studio and the teapot assignment in the ceramics studio.

Halloween @ Stevi UMC

Charles looks the part!
Charles had a fire pit going!
A proper mood
 We took part in the annual Trunk-or-Treat activity at the church. Belinda was involved in the setting up and Charles took part by passing out treats to the multitude of children who passed by the church on a chilly, overcast evening!
