Fall-ing in Leafy Love with Washington
Colorado got its first snow while we were gone! Winter Park got a dusting...so did Pike's Peak. (Too soon, too soon.)
I wish I could say that these past few days have been a quiet, relaxing time. Well, they have been -- sort of. Bro Jon and we went out to lunch a lot...and a Thai restaurant for supper. We've spent a lot of time talking, especially about stocks, options and such. (He enjoys trading.)
We've done some driving out in the Washington countryside. They have crisp, vivid reds out here -- something we don't often get back home.
That part's been wonderful. If it hadn't been for some online discussions I had to get involved with, life would be pretty peaceful.
We pack and head out tomorrow morning. A quick stop in Lynden for church, then maybe clam chowder at a seafood restaurant before we drop the rental car off at Sea-Tac. And head home. To the Mama, the chicks (who still have not produced eggs yet!), and the dogs.
