It occurs to me that I never shared my Halloween costume here.

I went as Ursula the sea witch.

I made the costume myself. The tentacles were easy - long purple troubles sewn to bigger black triangles. The suckers on the tentacles were  straightforward but time consuming.

The necklace was clay painted hold.

And the eels were essentially a stuffed pillow.

Typed on my phone

Almost two years ago, my mom gave me an iPad for Christmas.  I loved it. If you add up all the time I've spent using every other gift I've ever gotten and compared it to the time  I've spent using the iPad, the iPad would win.

So naturally, I flung it across the room and cracked the corner.

It still worked fine, so I kept using it. got a protection plan, and that plan expires in December.

Ten days ago, I took it in to get fixed.

I've been busy, so I haven't missed it as much as I thought I would, but I have noticed I have more free time, and I have a list of things I need to do when I get it back.

And the library books are piling up - I can read them on my phone, but its harder.

I hope it is back soon.
