Just Cuz

You know, there are times that life just flat gets busy.  Work, family, family, work, house, kids, work, life, cats, and whatever else pops up taking those precious extra hours of the day away from us. It’s a wonder we all just ain’t frazzled beyond belief!

Sometimes you just have to say,”Screw it!” and have a Just Cuz afternoon…

Wait, you aren’t sure what that is…. Continue reading “Just Cuz”

A stretch for us!

Well, as anyone who follows my blog and Facebook posts know, the last few weekends have been HELLA busy!  Two weekends ago we were in Portland for Michelle’s half marathon

Last weekend, we had Abby, our beautiful niece, up visiting for the first time.

So this weekend, after we dropped the Manchild off for a video game event, I asked Michelle to go out with me to Woodinville for some alone time. Continue reading “A stretch for us!”

Take Off to the Great White North!

When I was in college, there were two singers, Bob and Doug McKenzie,who had a comedy album all about Canada.  The most memorable song was of course the Canadian 12 days of Christmas.  “On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a BEER!”

Other items were 2 lbs of back bacon and 5 Golllllden Tukes!

That was my view of Canada for years! Luckily, since I have been with Michelle, I have been to both Vancouver and Victoria BC, and have been introduced to the real Canada! (Though they do like beer and Tukes!)

This weekend, we made another run to Vancouver, but for a reason that might surprise some.. Continue reading “Take Off to the Great White North!”

Labor Day Weekend…

As we all know, completely contrary to what the calendar and the weather gods think, Summer officially ends with Labor Day Weekend.  Soon the leaves will change, the sun will go down earlier, and the Starbucks lines will be longer due to ladies in yoga pants ordering Pumpkin Spice Lattes!  (Luckily I order ahead and avoid all lines!)

Before all this, we are given one last chance for a three-day weekend! Continue reading “Labor Day Weekend…”

Snuck off for a weekend

Those who read yesterday’s post may have noted I was writing it while sitting on a deck of a hotel room In Port Townsend, WA.  This is a little town, right on the Puget Sound here in Washington state.

Those who really know me, might think it was strange I was there on the weekend of the Chilly Hilly, which in the Seattle area is the considered opening day of cycling season.  But, it has been a long hard month at work, Michelle and I needed time away, and I SUCK at checking calendars..

The 57 mile breakfast!

So, Saturday morning was Valentines day.  Michelle whipped up some DAMN good scrambled eggs with pesto and cheese.  She gave me so much, I could barely fit it in tortilla wrap!  Trouble is an hour later, I looked at her and said “You are NOT going to believe this, but I am hungry again!”
