Our Busy Weekend

 We had a very busy weekend, a memorial for a good friend, a soccer game and a birthday celebration!

Lulu wasn't too happy to be at our grandson's soccer game even though the team won!

Dick was very happy that his birthday cake only had two candles! (That cake is our traditional one; it's Coca-Cola cake, a friend's recipe that remains everyone's favorite.)

And I had to water all of our indoor plants including this crazy mixed up Christmas cactus that prefers to celebrate Halloween.  Go figure!?

Have a great week!

Nice Walks but No Finishes Yet.

 Last night when we took a late walk, it was very dark, but our way was brightened by an almost full moon!  A few days ago, though, our walk up one of our local hills  awarded us with a nice view of Seattle despite the clouds.

As we continued walking, the skies cleared up, and we saw some beautiful fall colors in some sunshine!

I am nearly done with the Miss May shawl with just one more section to finish. Stay tuned. Have a great day. It's pretty chilly and cloudy again here.

Our Trip to Boulder, Colorado

I just now realized that I never posted our photos from our trip to Boulder, CO, to attend the memorial service for our dear friend Nancy. We also explored a bit, did a little hiking on the nearby trails and found the house where Dick stayed when he was a student. It was also fun to walk around the CU campus and have lunch at The Sink! The first photo shows the Flat Irons, in the second one was taken at Boulder Falls. (When Dick and I met, I was teaching in the Denver area and he came with some friends to my roommates' Halloween party, and the rest is

This is where Dick and his good friend, Art lived in Boulder. The middle photo is a great view of the CU campus, and you can guess where the last photo was taken!

For some reason The photos disappeared from my earlier post, so, here they are again. The computer can do crazy things, right?

Happy November! It's been Some Time Since I Checked In......

 Gosh, I just now realized that I never posted anything in October!  Somehow the days just fly by, and I've been trying to finish a couple of big projects as well as take our daily walks. I did actually finish a tiny project in October for a tiny baby. It's a preemie hat, and believe it or not I still have some of this crazy yarn left.

I hope you can read this sign on our porch!  It seems last night's visitor forgot both her broom and her pet spider!

Oh, and last night for the first time in years, and thanks to our new neighbor's grandchildren, we finally had a couple of cute little trick or treaters, so now I don't have to eat all the leftover candy!  Till next time!  Hope it doesn't take as long as this did!!

P.S. In case you can't read the sign, it says: "Witches Parking Place All Others Get  Toad."
