Brian and I finished installing the railing for the office porch yesterday. Whew! It turned out really nice, if I do say so myself. We ran out of time because we had a Halloween party to go to, so we were not able to install the hardware cloth around the base of the porch, but that's a pretty small job so I'm sure we'll be able to squeeze it in at some point before the snow flies.
As for the Halloween party--it was a costume one. This was the first time I wore a costume since I was a teenager. Not one for dressing up, I found an idea for a "selfie" costume, which Jake created for me. It turned out great! Brian went as a lumberjack (which, surprisingly, didn't involve much of a change to his wardrobe) and Jake wore a red Morphsuit (which made him I don't know what).
