On Cats and Blogging and a Road Trip

First of all, my apologies to the cats. “Sorry, Benji” “We worried you weren’t coming back, Sue.” “We’ll always come back, Benji. You can count on that.” “Same to you, Tiger.” “It was lonely without you, Sue.” “Sorry boys. It couldn’t be helped. There’ll… Continue Reading “On Cats and Blogging and a Road Trip”

Memories from Seattle’s Pike Place Market and the Showbox

My earliest memories from the Pike Place Market are from my high school days, when I’d go downtown to buy bell bottoms from the Army Navy Surplus Store, and everything smelled of patchouli. Years later when I worked downtown, I’d visit the Market on… Continue Reading “Memories from Seattle’s Pike Place Market and the Showbox”

A Rainy Day at the Zoo – In Black and White

Yesterday we visited the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle even though rain was in the forecast. And rain it did, most of the time we were there. Even so, I carried my camera and managed to sneak some pictures of the animals, which I… Continue Reading “A Rainy Day at the Zoo – In Black and White”

Looking for Beauty on a Rainy Spring Day

It’s another rainy day in the Great Northwest and the natives are getting restless. The cats are confused, wanting out but not. Then going out and wanting in again, an endless cycle. “Is there nothing you can do?” Tiger asks. “Sorry, no,” I say… Continue Reading “Looking for Beauty on a Rainy Spring Day”

Celebrating the Stony Walkers of Coulon

A Visit to Carkeek Park

Yesterday we visited Carkeek Park. I don’t know how many years it’s been as we don’t get to Seattle much since we moved to Renton. I’d forgotten how you can almost reach out and touch the Olympics further north. It was clear, cold and… Continue Reading “A Visit to Carkeek Park”

There were beautiful flower ladies to greet you – Display gardens, plants for sale and vendors displaying their wares. Yes, it was smaller, with everything… Continue Reading “The Northwest Flower and Garden Show is Back!”

Tonight’s Poofy, Cloudy, Sunset

Today was beautiful and sunny and ended with a lovely sky, filled with poofy clouds at sunset. Apparently, the clouds are just for looks as we are promised a rain-free week. Hooray! ~ Susanne

Third Day No Rain – Just Barely

It’s the third day with no rain in the Great Northwest but it was foggy, damp and cold and the sun never showed his face. Does it really count?? We bundled up anyway and went for a hike at Saltwater State Park and on… Continue Reading “Third Day No Rain – Just Barely”

First of Three Days

Yes, that is sunshine you see here in the Great Northwest! According to the local news, we are about to experience three rain free days in a row, for the first time since last September! To celebrate day one, I went for a walk… Continue Reading “First of Three Days”
