Finally spring…


I swear, it has been the coldest, rainiest, gloomiest spring in the Pacific Northwest.  I heard somewhere that it has actually been the crummiest spring since 1990.

This weekend was actually the first weekend where the weather was sunny and nice enough for shorts!  I needed this!

This last week I have had a bit more time to spend with friends.  A week ago, I went to a cocktail and food pairing tasting at a local restaurant with my friend Shelley.  There were seven courses of mini-cocktails, paired with delicious food!  It was a bit of a splurge, but it was so much fun!

Then Wednesday night was steak night with Jena and Audrey – so delicious and great conversation!

And Friday, I got together with Shelley, Tiffany, Toni, Danielle and Barb!  Six of us for great conversations and amazing Italian food.  It was definitely more social outings than I have had in a week for quite awhile.  It was much needed.

Then I topped it off with morning walks on both days, and Mom and I went to the matinee showing of Downton Abbey today!  Wonderful movie – they did a great job with it!  What a great week!

  1. Spring was kind of slow in coming in the Midwest, too, though better than in your part of the world I’m sure. Our first July 4th in Salem, OR many years ago, I was shivering in jeans and a sweatshirt and wondering what kind of terrible cold planet I’d landed on. Glad it has turned a corner and that you had such a nice week!

    • It has been nice for the last couple of days, but sadly, it is back to rain this evening. Not sure how long it will last this time. Only two days of shorts weather so far! Definitely one of colder, rainier springs we have had in a long time.
