some beach photos taken over a month ago now, not sure why i didn't post them. there were some particularly vibrant little dogwinkles, glowing purple and orange against the rocks. not one but two leather stars were exposed by the tide, a sea star i rarely see here on the inner coast. in spots the rocks were rich orange-red, perhaps because of lots of iron in the area? and there were a few moon snail remnants along the high tide line. always new things to see as the ocean washes in and out.
today is definitely an inside day. the wind is howling, and the heavy downpour swings sideways in accompaniment. i probably will venture out to the post office a bit later, but other than that it seems a good time work on some crafting at home. thankfully i got out for a few good forest walks over the past weekend, a bit of exploring on new trails in what is such a lush environment right now, the forest coming to life again beside the rushing river.
as mentioned, some things are changing up around here. some of them are directly to do with my craft work and the blog, and i'll let you know soon. but others are to do with 'real' life. i prefer not to talk too much about my day job most of the time. but in the last while it has become increasingly irregular and frustrating, and so while i'm still keeping that position, i have also accepted another part time position. i haven't started yet, so i don't quite know how working slightly more than full time will affect the rest of my life. it will mean less time for crafting and blogging, but i'm hoping perhaps i will just be more effective with the time i do have. we'll see. but today i am at home, and nearly finished a custom beast. if i'm efficient some other things might start to take shape this afternoon too.
here's hoping you are having a good start to your week.
