notes on living a life


“They would think she was savoring the taste (blueberries, cinnamon, cream-excellent), but she was actually savoring the whole morning, trying to catch it, pin it down, keep it safe before all those precious moments became yet another memory.” 

~ Liane Moriarty, What Alice Forgot 

We spent some time in Seattle this weekend; a few hours on Saturday and Sunday. Gary has a work friend who is in the hospital over here and so he headed up to see him. It is hard to be in the hospital in a city where you don't know anyone. I knew if I went I would hurry them, as they talked work and guy stuff, so the first day I had him drop at the Arboretum. 

The fall colors are not at their best yet, the weather has just been to perfect. But the walk was great and I played around some with a couple of lenses. It was so good to get out and to walk someplace other than our pond road. 

There was a wedding that afternoon and the photographer was busy taking shots of the bridal party, trying to keep the bride and groom from seeing each other. That was fun to watch; everyone laughing and making memories. 

I rested on this bench for a bit and watched. Man he had a huge lens on his camera and did some really creative things with the kids. The guys were pretty funny and he had to whip them in shape a couple of times.  


On Sunday I had Gary drop me at U Village to do some shopping. That was not nearly as fun. I bought a new meat thermometer and some dish rags. I know you are jealous right? But it was the Dog Dash and everyone at the Village had their dogs. I would have brought Basil had I known. 

thanks for stopping by today, 

tomorrow i can drive!
