Where has this year gone? More importantly, where has the summer gone, and what was I doing when it passed me by? This has been a crazy-weather-year so far for my tiny part of the world. We had an unusually warm, dry winter, and cold, rainy summer. I don't know that I'm complaining, except that the light is dwindling fast, and I feel like it just got here! I'm just not ready...
How has your summer or winter been so far? I have to say this summer started with great promise...such great promise, and then I literally lost a good month of it, so I tried to salvage what I could of August. We went on a lovely trip to eastern WA. I really like going over there for a change of scenery, especially because it's so close! We had such a wonderful time there. I kid you not, the kids didn't even fight once!
We stayed in downtown Spokane, so we did a lot of walking (I love walking). We tried some cute little restaurants that we wouldn't have found had we been in the car. We toured a dam, went in a cave, did a little hiking. We even went to this little park thing where they have some carnival rides and I talked the kids into riding the scrambler with me...fun fun! My boy even tried the tilt-a-whirl. I just love those little rides.
Perhaps you've noticed a lack of pictures... I didn't take any! jj got some, but I just didn't want to lug my camera around. I really need a little point-and-shoot I can carry around in my purse (in a cute little case!). jj said he'd buy one for me...I'll have to nag him! ;D
|this was like a huge dandelion, but it was so sturdy we couldn't blow the seeds off|
I've been doing some crochet, but no pictures. I'll have to take some and post again...hopefully in a timely fashion. Until then, enjoy your last bits of summer/winter!
