Weather and Water Sports

Okay, so it’s been TWO weekends since I last wrote. Sorry! Things have been a little busy around here! I had the opportunity to get to know the Seattle area a lot more than I ever cared to this past weekend. I went to Seattle for a bachelorette party for a friend from college, but Snoqualmie pass was a mess by the time I woke up on Sunday so I tried for Stevens instead. When I was about 10 miles from the pass itself, I came upon an accident that was blocking my lane. After 15 minutes of waiting, the cop on the scene told everyone he was closing the pass to all eastbound traffic. So I returned to my friend’s house after 3 hours of pointless driving. But hey, I made it back from point B to point A without needing a map! (Okay, so I called Sara a time or two just to double check a few things.) By late Sunday night they had opened up Snoqualmie to all vehicles that had traction tires, so I gave it another shot early on Monday morning and made it back to Spokane by 10:45.

Aside from that, I’ve kept busy brushing up on my kayaking skills and working on the d├ęcor of my new apartment. I have now mastered the ‘T-rescue,’ which means technically I can kayak on the river… although I’m awfully hesitant about that prospect. It’s a wonderful workout, I can sure say that!

I’ve been thinking a lot about travel lately, although I am definitely a long time away from following through on any of my daydreams. But here’s what’s at the top of my list: road trip U.S.A., Spain, Greece and Africa.

I hope this helps you daydream about travel yourself. It always brings a smile to my face. I can’t imagine it wouldn’t do that same for you.

I won my pool game last night! I was the first to play which rarely happens, but for some reason, it did the trick! I left before the match was over, but I think we won… we won the first 3 games, any how, and Charlie seemed to have things in order by the time I left.

It’s trying to snow today, which figures, because today I finally decided to wear my skirt. So of course I’m going to freeze my legs off. But hey, all in the name of style, right? I’m looking forward to the weekend, although I don’t have too much planned. I’ve been running nonstop for about 2 weeks now, so a short break is needed. I plan to buy the last new small items for my apartment and continue to look for good deals on the bigger pieces of furniture that I need. I love projects. :)

Well, I know this is short, but it’s been a very loooooooong time and I wanted to give a quick update. More to come this weekend!
