We're gearing up for Halloween, and K already has the house decorated with autumn leaves, the headless horseman, and even a spooky house that produces a creepy fog effect. I've been spending the lion's share of my free time lifting heavy things (I'm finally gettin' in shape... now that, you know, I'm FORTY), and also writing video game computer code. It's a fun little hobby, and I make a little more progress every day with it.
I'm aware that I need to post loads and loads of pictures from our recent trip to IRELAND, but honestly there is just so much stuff to go through, and work has been a bit of a bear since we got back. The pictures, and the posts, are coming soon, and I look forward to sharing them with you!
In recent history, and perhaps most importantly...
We got officially engaged!!!! :)
I did it right, and I've asked just to make sure: I got down on one knee, and asked her to marry me, and she said yes! We're still working out details (I'm told that the planning will take about a year...), but mostly we're just very happy together, and we want that to keep on going for the rest of our lives. :)
Here's a nice picture of the ring, if you haven't already seen it:
Her folks took us out for a nice celebration dinner, and we've obviously been making plans and whatnot. To answer the most popularly asked questions: no, we don't have a date yet; and yes, our honeymoon will, in fact, be in Paris!! :)
I'll keep you posted!
Tomorrow, ADVENTURE!! :)
