Life in My World—A Few for Friday

Photobucket

When Cali changed jobs a few months ago the hospital offered her a modern apartment in downtown Seattle overlooking Puget Sound while she found housing. It came complete with a lobby attendant and cleaning service once a week. The lease ended this week and Ray had to be in Arizona for meetings, so Calvin and I went over to help move the last load or two they hadn’t been able to do earlier.

Ray and Cali moved up the hill into a wonderful mother-in-law apartment in a quaint house. The apartment windows have age bubbles in the glass and the yard is filled with exotic plants. There is a fire pit in an arboretum in the back yard. Seattle boasts of being eclectic and the diversity between the two apartments supports the claim.

I do not like the stimulus package.

Strawberry cupcakes, frosted sugar cookies, cherry turnovers, zinger hearts—it’s the week of white flour and sugar at our house.

I want to see her down town place. I love that period. My girl friend has two daughters down there. I love the narrow, hilly streets with no where to park, but you find a place. And the houses built in the 1910's and 20's. You can,t beat them. What is in the fire pit? Do they use it? And the exotic plants? Rodadendrum? (sp?) questions all>

PS, I love Seattle, but I wouldn't want to live there.

I loved the way you described Cali's new place and "ecclectic" Seattle.

Yes yes to the flour and sugar being our theme of the week. LOVE the heart. I might need to go get some zingers today...

I love Seattle.

stimulus package = one very nervous tax payer

The stimulus package has me all riled up this week, but I've tried very hard to keep it out of my blogging because I could not have left it so gently as you have..:)

I also do not like the stimulus package. I do not like how it is too big to even read. I do not like how that doesn't seem to make any members of congress blink. Hate it. I'll stop now.

I haven't done a lick of baking. I'm deciding that to be a good thing.
