Things I love about summer finally arriving in Seattle

1. Stone fruit and heirloom tomatoes at the farmers market
2. Watching our garden grow after being sad and cold for so long
3. Wearing sandals!!!

New year, new home

We've been in our new place for a little over a month now and are still unpacking. Nonetheless, it feels like home already - it helped that we had houseguests right away, so the upstairs and communal areas are pretty well set up. Now it's just going through the boxes from the office and basement and deciding what to keep, donate or toss. We won't talk about the garage just yet, it's too scary out there. Instead, let's look at pictures!

Stockings were actually hung by the chimney this year,
because we now have a fireplace.

Presents under the tree.

Robot on the mantel - he's the house mascot.

Happy New Home

Things I love about our new house

2. The gigantic well-lit basement and its equally large back closet, which is our new pantry.
3. Enough room in the living room for my piano to be upstairs (where hopefully it won't be so neglected).

Missing on Monday

A few of the many reasons I miss my friend Christine

1. She was the person I called about
2. She was one of the few people who could match my random sense of humor.

She accepted me, flaws and all.

Sunny day and Spring Hill

Things I will order tonight at dinner

1. Vegetable tasting with grilled flatbread - the flatbread is my favorite part of eating at Spring Hill, every time. Like manna from heaven.
2. Three course Dine Around Seattle set menu - such a good deal. I'm thinking hangar steak is in order.
3. Baden-powell cocktail - dry fly gin, bosc pear tonic, soda, lime, shaved ice. Perfect for this sunny fall day; I can pretend it's still summer.

Check out other delightful menu options and information at springhill.com

AFoMFT, GLEE!!! edition

My favorite things about GLEE (so hard to list only three)

1. Sue Sylvester!!!!! (self-explanatory)
2. Kurt - so confident, adorable and generally thoughtful, especially toward his dad. One of the sweetest characters on TV.
3. Puck and Quinn - such a better match than Finn and Quinn, plus their names don't have that annoying rhyme going on.
