Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!   3 comments

Wow, what a gorgeous weekend here in the Northwest!  As I type this,  it is snowing – hard.  We have had 8 inches of snow so far.  Here are the highlights of the weekend…

The picture of the cat who likes to hang out at our house was taken Saturday morning before the real storm hit in the evening.  All the other photos were taken on Sunday morning. 

We also enjoyed our annual holiday get together with the neighbors.  We were supposed to go out for dinner but we ended up hanging out around home because of the snow storm.  We had a progressive dinner and enjoyed it so much we decided we should do this every year!

The Weekend in Review – Saturday   1 comment

Let’s start with Saturday on my way to do the grocery shopping…

First stop was a stroll through Juanita Bay Park…

The weather was perfect on Saturday and it seemed as though all of nature wanted to take advantage of the warmth from the sun. The turtles were clamouring for a spot on any exposed log they could find so that they could catch a few rays.

Next was a quick stop on Lake Washington in Kirkland to get a few pictures of the mountains…

I then decided I wanted to find a cemetery so that I could get some photos for my Memorial Day post. Boy did I find a beautiful place – Sunset Hills Memorial Park in Bellevue…

And in this quiet place, my camera battery said that it would like a little plot of its own near some pretty flowers.

So, off to the grocery store I finally went!  We finished the day by doing some gardening and having a wonderful barbeque with the neighbors…
