Seattle and the Shop

Tomorrow I’m flying with our DIL and our two grandbabes to Seattle.

I’ll be giving my full 90 on Sunday at the Major League Soccer Cup game between our team, the Seattle Sounders FC, and Toronto FC. I found this old ticket from 2012 when we played Toronto for our opening game of that season. Seattle is all a buzz with the excitement of hosting this game on our home turf.

I’ll be seeing all our kids this weekend. This is an early anniversary gift our kids had made for us. The photo was taken in Seattle on September 8th. Brought me to tears when I opened it. The best of gifts for sure.

I’m not taking my computer with me because I’ll have a 2 year old in tow and I need both hands without an extra carry-on. I’ll be scarce until next Wednesday.

Dear will be staying home and continuing work on the shop roof.

He’s a hard working guy! Our son chain sawed out the notches on the top of the posts. That was a huge help to Dear.

We’re still hoping the roof will be on by the first big snow. Time will tell.

Hope you all have a great weekend. I’ll check in with y’all next Wednesday or Thursday.

  1. I love that gift from you kids! Beautiful photo! Enjoy the game and time in your old stomping grounds. And all the best your Dear as he labors on getting that roof up. =)

  2. Shop coming along fine. We will be building one too, though not nearly as big as yours.
    Have a great time while you’re away!!

  3. I hope you have a wonderful time at the game! We love soccer. The roof work looks complicated but expert in style. We may have our fourth snow of the season on Monday–it might be a long winter!

  4. Hope you’re all having a great time on your trip! No worries about not being connected . . . there will be time for that later. As you said, I’m sure you’ll be needing both hands!

    Oh, that gift. It speaks volumes. I recognize the triple “loves” from your dear Pop. And all of your dear ones there in the photo . . . priceless!
