It was a beautiful day for a drive... Anacortes with a friend.  

Foggy morning drive up I-5

Enjoying the sun with the gulls

Walk on the beach

Making lunch with Rebecca and her mom

Just a perfect day

Yes, I have been knitting...

...and actually finished a scarf.  The Hitchhiker Scarf which will be for me me me.  Because it is very soft and delicious.  

Now I'm working on a crocheted baby blanket out of a soft pink Plymouth Encore worsted yarn.  Also soft and delicious.  The recipient will be born later this month and I am assured that she will be a girl.

Autumn at Volunteer Park

Let's see...since my last post in September I've been to Spain, Portugal, seen Bob Dylan in concert in Vancouver BC and Seattle, and celebrated my MIL's 90th birthday with her in Redondo Beach CA.
I've started volunteering in my friend's 2nd grade class on Mondays, been getting to yoga classes on a regular basis and lost 20 pounds. I like retirement!!

Today I had lunch with a new friend that I met on our Spain trip.  She lives up on Capital Hill in Seattle and her 1904 built home sits on a tree lined street just bursting with autumn color.  Since the Mr. was in a seminar all day I took myself to Volunteer Park's Seattle Asian Art Museum to see an East Indian art exhibit, walk around the grounds and through the conservatory.  I should know to carry my camera with me at all times, especially on a day like today.  So all of these were taken with my iPod touch.
