After a fun weekend, we’re back (I’m back, Peter’s being dragged along) to doing useful stuff: lampshades, pillows, dishes, utensils, armchair, fake flowers, fake plants, cooking utensils, a jar to put them in, and other stuff like that.

But Twitter-readers will have noticed we went whale watching Friday night. Peter has all the better pictures on his big camera, but I’m not inflicting his raw image files upon this poor laptop. But here’s one I managed to take (without his high-speed shutter):

Pretty cool, huh? We saw LOTS of whales and had an open bar too. And yesterday we went snorkeling and I totally had to back away numerous times from the sea turtle I was so close to. And Seattle? It’s been snowing. I’m not kidding.
