FFF ~ Summer?


Friday already and time to look back for a week and think about blessings in your life. Thank you Susanne for the reminder to think on good things.


1. I’ve had the chance to enjoy summer vicariously in seeing photos like these my niece in California shared. Our daughter Katie is visiting my family and enjoying summer where the sun is shining more consistently than our area. The pictures would be bigger if I was there but remember this is a vicarious little experience with the sun and beach and summer…

2. On the same vein…I’m thankful our daughter has been able to spend time with my mother and father while she’s been in California. The girls went to my mom’s for brunch yesterday and my parents were so happy to feed them and enjoy their company. They all spent Father’s Day together around a meal, too.


3. I am enjoying all the birds and their songs early in the morning. I was happy to see my little hummingbird friends return just outside the window where I sit at my computer…


4. SOUNDERS! Last night I was at the Seattle Sounders game against the New York Red Bulls. What a great game it was. We went up by 2 goals and N.Y. tied up the game with 2 goals and we finally won with two more goals by Roger Levesque. Did I lose you? The final score was Seattle 4 ~ N.Y. 2! A happy night at the stadium.


5. Last Friday night Dear and I picked up a couple of long time family friends of ours who happened to be in Seattle to embark on a cruise to Alaska. We went to one of our favorite restaurants and enjoyed a rare for this year sunny evening. These gals are my brother in laws sisters and we grew up in the same Russian community in the Los Angeles area. After they married, Laura and her husband settled in Canada and Ruth and her husband settled in Michigan. It was good to see them and enjoy a good meal together.

I think I can speak for the majority of us here in the Great Northwest and say that we are really looking forward to more nights like these around here….


What were the highlights of your week? Are you experiencing summer yet in your neck of the woods?

Tomorrow Dear and I are headed out on a little adventure. I enjoy planning these little day trips. Hope you have a good weekend…

Photobucket replaced all my photos with blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. 90″s with 80% humidity….but then God has given us 3 days in the 70’s with less humidity and I actually have the house open….SO GLORIOUS! And yes you kind of lost me on your Sounders….I do not understand that game at all~~~~especially the CRAZY part where they sometimes bounce balls off their heads. THAT’S CRAZY ELLEN….ABSOLUTELY CRAZY! (c: Enjoy your day tomorrow

  2. Such beautiful pictures! Love reading about your visit with old friends…my dearest, oldest friend is coming down next weekend for a visit. Its been a few yrs, and I am so excited 🙂
    Blessing on your week & adventures!

  3. Love that hummingbird. I never put my feeder out this year; got tired of fighting the ants. What fun you must have had with the dear friends!

    We are deep into summer here. We have been in the 90s consistently for quite awhile now. It’s hot, but I love it.

  4. your picture with the boats is great – makes me yearn for some ocean time. this past week we had a few days in the 100’s with the rest in the 90’s. that is cool for this time of year.
    how wonderful that your girls are down here in CA visiting their grandparents. i am sure that everyone is pleased with the time spent together.

  5. We had a couple of hours of summer here yesterday, but today is more like March than June! Have fun, whatever you and your Dear are up to!

  6. What a nice group of photos! That little hummingbird is adorable. Yesterday I watched some 6th graders graduate to middle school that I’ve known for years. They are good kids and have worked hard; I was so proud of them that I could’ve burst my buttons. That’s my pick for my best day this week!

  7. SOunds like you’re having similar weather to ours- not very summery at all. Let’s hope July is better!

    Hpw nice that Katie was able to visit with your parents!

    Love the hb picture!
