Thursday Thoughts v.9.13.12

Linking up for some Thursday Thoughts with Sarah


I'm having a hard time remembering today is Thursday. I had a migraine pretty much all day yesterday, so lost one entire day this week. Just as I thought I was beginning to feel better early yesterday afternoon, the neighbor started up his weed wacker, and the noise did not sit well with me. Consequently, I spent most of the day in bed, using both an eye mask and ear plugs. Blech.


I travel to beautiful Waco, TX, in exactly two weeks! Can't wait to spend some quality time with Sarah. She has spent so much alone-time with her dad, it's about time I get my fair share, too. Then again, when Sarah was quite young she told me that she wanted to live with her dad if we ever got divorced because, in her exact words, "... I love him more." Insert years of heartbreak and heartache here. Still recovering.


We recently had a wonderful visit with some good friends from Spokane. We ate too much, drank a little, attended a Mariner game, and enjoyed their company while they stayed with us for a few days. They and my husband went kayaking just up the road, and I managed to get a few good pictures. They were visited by a seal that came right up to both boats, and I happened to be taking pictures overhead from a bridge. Love it!

Tom, Dana, Wally and the seal!


Husband and I had an enjoyable morning today at a local historic homestead. We attended one in a series of "Eat Your Way Through Kitsap" events sponsored by our county historical society. These visits at historically significant locales throughout the county include knowledgeable speakers who provide insight into the history of the site. In many cases, current or former residents of the area also speak of their family's history. Each event includes lunch, as well. I've lived in this county for 56+ years, but there is still so much to learn!

Hope your week is going well and you haven't "lost" any days this week!


  1. Love the pics with the boats. I would love to go kayaking someday.

  2. You had nice weather for your historical society event -- did you see our friends from the Anthony's luncheon?
    Also, what good timing on your kayak picture -- can't imagine you could ever plan such a great picture.
