With summer in full swing, the Mister and I decided to take a day off from all the busyness and head to Seattle for a little adventure.
There were no cows or chickens to tend to. Only coffee cups to refill.
|As a former truck driver, my Mister didn't mind the almost 3 hour drive.|
There were no meals to prepare, but during one of our many pit stops, we gained a new appreciation for bacon. And the possibilities...
|Hand dryer in a truck stop restroom~which explains the poor spelling. "I" before "E", except after "C"!|
We captured moments on film...mainly because we were clean.
|Me and my Minnie-me, Valerie|
We saw some famous landmarks,
|The Space Needle|
and we shopped 'til we dropped at one of the oldest farmer's markets around.
|Right on the waterfront, Pike's Place market opened in 1907!|
Tomorrow, the firewood stacking, fence-mending, chicken tractor moving, cow stall building, and garden watering will still be waiting for us.
|My bouquet of sunflowers, dahlias, coreopsis, sweet peas, and baby's breath only cost $10~and I got the pleasure of watching the young vendor put it all together. Pure talent.|
And we'll be ready.
