November 2016 Supermoon

I wasn't going to leave the comfort of my jammies and house to go look at the supermoon but decided to get dressed and go to Mass Maritime.  Really glad I did.  I have never seen a moon that big in my life.  And it was all lit up pink from the sunset too.

There goes the barge!  Kinda wish the train bridge had lowered for a train.  That would've been cool.

Really gorgeous!!!!!  Once in a lifetime!

Hodge Podge

I've been just too lazy and uninspired to update lately.  Weather's been all over the place.  I'm always tired.  Halloween was a total bust.  Didn't get a single kid which was actually OK cause I was alone that night.  I did roast some pumpkin seeds but I over did them and they went in the garbage.  But I did this to the pumpkin before I removed the seeds.

The turkeys are really playing fast and loose this month!

Get yer foot off my rock from Bolinas!

Still stitching.  This one was a lot of fun.  I found sparkly gold aida cloth and the pattern is called 'Pretty Little San Francisco' by Satsuma Street.

Our 2016 ornament.  I think Russell's just glad I'm not dragging him around the Glass Museum this year!  

I was hoping to find a more Salish tribal pattern for this orca but I love this one too.

I went down to the Canal at Mass Maritime the afternoon of the supermoon.  I got there in time for a pretty sunset.  Moon pics will be in the next post.

Tug and barge coming in.

Sauchuk Farms Corn Maze, Plympton

One of the things on my fall to-do list was to visit a corn maze.  The closest one to me is in Plympton, at Sauchuk Farms.  Sheila & her son joined me on a gorgeous Sunday morning. 

The maze celebrated It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown's 50th anniversary.  Not that you could tell from inside the maze so I'm glad they had an aerial view of the map.

A lot of the cornstalks were stunted by the hot, dry summer, so at times I could see over the tops of the corn.  That made the maze easier to navigate.

It didn't appear that they harvested much of the corn as there were lots of cobs still left on them.

The first of 2 bridges inside the maze.  The one I used to go to in Washington had 2 like this too.

It was a beautiful day, although chilly with a brisk wind.  I immediately regretted wearing shorts but after awhile it finally warmed up.

Spin the Simon Says Wheel and see what you have to do!

We did the hayride out to the pumpkin patch.  Those guys got pumpkins but I didn't want to cart one around.

That was another hay ride with individual cars.  Ours had 2 large ones with benches on either side.

We'd had heavy rain the day before so it was a bit wet and muddy.

Targets for the corn and pumpkin cannons.


I picked up some kettle corn on the way out, as well as a half dozen apple cider donuts!

There is one more weekend left of the maze before it closes for the season.  I'm really glad I got to go this year!
