Sunday morning, Ian and I hiked Humpback Rocks, which is our go-to hike when we don't want to make a project out of it. It's a short but fierce twenty minute ascent. We charged our way to the top without stopping to rest. As we approached the summit, and I was congratulating myself on my superior fitness, I heard the unmistakable sound of a newborn baby crying. Then a bride appeared, who had apparently hiked the whole trail while carrying a perfect bouquet of roses and a garment bag that contained (presumably) her veil and gown. So much for my superior fitness!

We were home by 12:30, just in time to help our neighbors kill the keg from their party the night before. Also on the agenda this weekend: taking care of Sancho, who is sick and needs a special diet, and medications, and I also gathered enough ripe figs to make jam, and also put up some peach chutney. We love chutney and it's nice to have an alternative to the sticky Major Grey stuff.
I would like to finish the front hall, but now I have a more pressing project: I will be going to a week-long conference for work to the Epic's "intergalactic headquarters" in Madison, Wisconsin, and I need a "deep space" themed costume. What do you think would be original and also work-appropriate? There will probably be 800 Princess Leias and Lieutenant Uhuras. I'm thinking maybe Mrs. Which from A Wrinkle in Time or Miss Pickerell from Miss Pickerell Goes to Mars. These are more my line than minidresses and go go boots.
