Back home...




We are back from our vacation in Washington. We had a great time, although it rained almost every day. Apparently, this is the coldest first week of June since 1894. The above picture is the view from our bedroom at low tide. Still pretty magnificent - rain or not. It was getting hard at the end of the trip to keep the 6 year old occupied she took it all in stride.

We went into Seattle on Monday, which turned out to be the nicest weather day. We went to the Space Needle which was great. Walked around alot which we all needed to do! :) Since it was Sunday alot of the cute home furnishings shops were closed - not that I would buy anything but I love to look in fun places like that. They had an Ann Sacks store which was closed. But there were huge windows showing all the cool stuff they have. We went to the Pike Place market which was lots of fun. On Saturday afternoon, my daughter & I went to a local ballet recital. It was really good - dancers from age 4-24. It was entertaining - the dancers were great. On Saturday there was a "low tide" festival. That was really fun, even though it was COLD and we weren't prepared. We were able to see all kind of sea life - even a live starfish.
Today I had a follow up doctor appointment @ 8:45. What was I thinking scheduling that the day after we get home??? It was a good appointment though. My cholesterol is down quite a bit and the dr was happy. Me too,as I didn't want to end up on medication. We will test it again in Dec but I am hoping it stays the same.
I am off the bed - a little later than I wanted - just like always. But not too late. I will probably be a little scarce while I get caught up on cleaning, laundry and paperwork. Hopefully it won't take too long...

That view was amazing, where did you stay? The weather here has been dreadful, so I'm glad you got a little bit decent weather. The Seattle area is really beautiful. Mountains, the sound and all the green trees. A little sunshine is just the icing on the cake ;0)
