A goopy sea cucumber

Following the promptings of a sister I am breaking a month and a half long hiatus to update my blog on some recent things that are happening in Hilary's and my life. [< Does anyone know how to say that in a way that is grammatically correct and doesn't sound awkward?]

My cutie, who's daily getting more and more beautiful, went to the beach with me yesterday.
It was a balmy lower seventies, so we had the beach mostly to ourselves, and we didn't feel like the sole's of our feet were getting scorched as we walked across the sand.

Every time I visited the beach during the summer there was a goopy strip of scummy sea weedish stuff at the water's edge. The water was nice and warm, but when I went swimming in it I half-way expected to break out in itchy red bumps.

This is all in contrast to yesterday, when the water was cool and crystal clear. I went snorkeling, but I don't go out deeper than I can stand because I still haven't gotten over my fear of sharks.

Hily took some photos from the beach:
Hily and I played music at church this morning. Her talent is highly in demand (I think I'm there mostly because they figure that she doesn't come without me - and they're right). At her prompting we played a groovy version of "Swing Low" and a mellow version of Be Thou My Vision, which only one other person in the entire group was familiar with.

Our baby is daily getting larger, and I am sure she must be a future olympic athlete, because she never sits still. A jab to the left, followed by a somersault and a knee to the stomach... it is so bizarre to actually feel our baby's little foot when I put my hand on Hily's tummy! I am hoping and praying that I will be as good of a dad as I am sure Hilary will be a mother.

We are preping to visit for Peter and Liz's wedding next weekend. Hily is playing music for that, so we borrowed the church's keyboard so we can practice tonight.

Work is really interesting, and I've been enjoying it a lot. I actually have a hard time not thinking about it when I'm off of work, because I find the problems I am working are so interesting. That's a good sign, but I have to remind myself quite frequently that I need to keep work life somewhat separate from my home life. Hilary is really nice about that though, she actually asks me about stuff that I do.

Finally, I resurrected my old project of writing a computer game. I actually restarted it earlier this year. I work on it when I have free-time, which actually doesn't seem that often these days. This time I actually hope to finish it though...

Here's a picture of a sea-cucumber that I found when I was wading in the cove about an hour ago (Hily took it from the dock):

Thank you so much for posting! Hilary is indeed a beautiful pregnant lady :) Not to make you worried or anything, but I thought sharks swam up to shallow water (?)

Hilary is one of the most beautiful pregnant ladies I've seen, just as I imagined she'd be. Thanks for posting some pics. And congratulations on soon-to-be baby!
