Only One Left

One Little Pink Link
That's all that's Left

No there wasn't a Theft!

Day by day each paper was picked
and tossed onto the Floor.

With one left, that must mean I'm out the

(To understand my "poem", read this post
I'll be gone for a few days!)

4. Bikes enjoy the trail
5. One of several pieces of art work
6. My shadow
7. Picnic area

7 B Blue Herons
8. Car Bridge
9. Walking Bridge

10. Directions to city sights.
11. Starbucks 
12. Downtown 

It has been one year since we move to our town and

Friendship Basket

 My dear friend is having a biopsy 
tomorrow. She found a lump in her breast.

A gift basket includes:
Herbal tea, 
 and a mug.

The Peanut Butter Balls are a healthy snack
 and the herbal tea is delicious. 
I made sure that I put a lot of love and prayer
 into the arrangement.

Tomorrow, I will check on her and deliver this basket. 

"Plant a Seed of Friendship
Reap a Bouquet of Happiness"

Update: the tumor is benign, still thinking about having it removed.

I like the sound 
of my feet crunching 
the frozen grass.

Paper Chain Count Down

 Lulu (in Boise) and I (in Redmond), made paper chains to count 
down the days before our next visit.

My paper chain and
plane ticket, very visible.

Sunday Nights

 I've heard about this mini series.
Thought I'd see what it was all about.

Is it the aristocratic family?
Or the drama of the servants?

Was it Shirley MacLaine's grand entrance?

Or their home?

It's got to be all those customs and hats.

Friemily:  fri-em-i-ly, noun
1. friends who you wish were or are, close like  family
2. one or more adults or children, who act like family, but aren't
3. a group of friends and a group of family, attached to another by affection

We made-up this word to describe our friends from Texas.
Jeff and Shannan were our neighbors.
We did everything together, holidays, birthdays, births and deaths, weekends, weekdays, dinners, etc.
We would plan events but more often
it was spur of the moment, get together's.
Sometimes, we would laugh until tears rolled down our faces.

Then they moved back to Texas, 10 years ago,
right after their son was born.

But this Christmas, they came up for the week.
It was the first time back since they moved away.
We did so many things.

Snowflake Lane

Christmas breakfast

Ferry Boat ride

They loved the rain!
In Texas, they have had a drought.
(Brennan, jumped into every mud puddle he could and loved the moss.)

A tour of Christmas lights.

Visited Woodland Park Zoo.

Got a picture on the Jimmy Hendrix's Rock.

Look out for the bear!

We ate so much Seafood.
This was a dinner with huge crabs.

Brennan thought it could be a hat.

Tom told Brennan he could have
ice cream and popcorn for breakfast.
He loved it!

What is a trip to Seattle without going UP
the Space Needle?

It was a beautiful day.

We went to the Pike Place Market.

This is Starbucks first store.
Huge line!

Brennan contributed gum to the
famous "Gum Wall".

Bought some shrimp and fish.

Spent time with Todd, Stephanie and Trey,
eating a Northwest Seafood Feast.

Spent time together

"W" for Washington
We were the only ones crazy enough to be out in the rain.
They couldn't get enough of the stuff!

Throwing rocks into the water.

Shannan took many pictures
of the gray, rainy day.
She loved it!

Brennan and Lucy became friends.

Saying Good-By is never easy.

Good-by Friemily!
We'll see you real soon.
