So, in a week or so, Michelle and I will hit the 9 month mark of the day we moved to the coast. There were those who believed, and hell maybe still believe, that we’d get tired of living here.
In all honestly, just like anywhere, there are work days that suck ass, and days where nothing all that memorable happens. There is magic at the coast, but that magic does not happen every day.
But then there are days like today. Where from before sun up, to after sun down, the coast puts on a show! When that happens we love it! And since it happened today, I wanted to share with you… Continue reading “Dawn to dusk”
I am known for many things:
- Riding long distances on a bike
- Making people laugh
- McGyvering things to make it work (whatever IT is)
- Sipping wine
- And being able to drink a beer while standing on my head (I can still do it!)
I am not known for deep contemplative thoughts….
This morning I may have had one! I may have hurt myself a bit, as I had a headache for most of the day…. Continue reading “Just a thought….”
So when I last left y’all, I had told you that Michelle and I had had one HELLUVA busy weekend last week. (See That was a busy 36 hours!) I will tell you that the week did slow down a bit, and I was NOT rushing near as much as last Saturday. Continue reading “it was an interesting week!”
I ALWAYS hesitate to complain about the heat in Seattle. I know there are some places in the states where our high temps are their lows. Also, people in Washington state, who like the heat, sometimes get cross when I complain.
“HEY!! I deal with cold, wet, dreary all winter!! I deserve a summer!” Has been expressed to me more than once.
But this first week of August has been flat nuts. And it’s NOT just because of the heat… Continue reading “Smokin Hot!!”
I have said time and again how lucky I am to live in the Pacific Northwest. We have fresh air, green trees, lakes, rivers, wildlife, oceans and mountains. As a cyclist up here in the left hand corner of the county, I know that whether I am 100 miles away from home or less than 10, if I keep an eye out I am likely to spot something like this guy I saw Sunday.
I will say getting close to the shore in cycling shoes was NOT easy, but worth it! If he is going to pose, then it just seems right I take the photo!
Tuesday, though, was a bit rough from the nature standpoint.. Continue reading “More nature than I really wanted….”
Yep, it is official, the Seattle area has had its wettest winter ever! I know, I know, those who do not live in the Northwest might be amazed. As far as the rest of the country is concerned, every day in Seattle, year round, looks like this.
And I won’t lie. with these stats from the Tacoma News Tribune
The National Weather Service said 22.78 inches of rain have fallen at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport since Dec. 1. That beats the previous record of 22.77 inches, set in the winter of 1998 to 1999.
We have had many days which look just like this picute. but that is only half the story…. Continue reading “Wettest Winter Ever”
