Stats Suck Sunday

It isn't sunny, but we did get a great picture today at the place where we ate brunch today. Thanks to the staff member who volunteered to take it & she even knew where we should stand for best background! She had done this a time or two!
  • Amanda arrived over an hour late Friday night (Sat morning). With the time change, she had been up a really long time. Got back to our house about 2AM. Past everyone's bedtime.
  • Still glad we flew her to a closer airport because we couldn't have gotten back from Seattle without snow tires. 
  • Had a wonderful brunch at The Cave B Winery & Estates at Sagecliffe. The restaurant on property, Tendrils, is open to the public. I do believe we will go back. The menu changes daily. 
  • Yesterday, we drove up to Leavenworth. This is a mountain town that is like a Bavarian village. Ted & I visited here back in November. Ate a wonderful lunch where schnitzel was on the menu! And spaetzle & red cabbage. 
  • Had no luck finding a new ski jacket or boots for Amanda. In a ski town. Go figure!
  • There really wasn't time for Ted & Amanda to make pierogies, so we ate the ones Ted froze Christmas Eve. They were excellent, of course!
  • Tomorrow on the menu is one of Amanda's all time favorites. Mom's Chicken & Dumplings. There is one more outdoor store we will hit in the pursuit of boots. Maybe a mom & daughter pedicure. 
  • Snow also in forecast for tomorrow. Amanda is excited! Tuesday morning will come too quick.
It has been a nice weekend. And I am very full. Still!

Stats Suck Sunday

It's Sunday again. Where did the time go???? Following the lead of the guy who hasn't done a SSS in, well, a really long, I will do bullet points.
  • Amanda comes to the State of Washington for the first time ever on Friday!!
  • I'm gonna guess she isn't going to like my choice of pictures. I could put up a cute baby bath-time one, Amanda!! :)
  • Ted & I will be making our first trip West to Seattle to pick her up. Hope the pass in the Cascades will travel over will not give us any trouble. (Snoqualmie Pass)
  • We have 3 days to fill. Ted is taking off Friday & Tuesday (the day we go back to Seattle to take her to the airport).
  • Saturday she wants to ski jacket & boot shopping. Gee, 2 ski towns. Wonder what we will find! Sales, I hope!
  • Taking her to Leavenworth. The German-like town Ted & I visited a few weeks back. I'm hungry for a braut. They have them on every menu there! And a couple of ski shops, too!
  • Sunday, we are hoping to go here for brunch. Not sure if they are open for brunch in the winter. I'm calling tomorrow. Cave B Winery is on the property for The Gorge amphitheater. You know, where CreationFest is held. And Dave Matthews plays EVERY Labor Day weekend for all 3 days.
  • Monday? Not sure. Will depend on the weather & what we find or don't find on Saturday. Then Tuesday back to Seattle.
  • I know I'm getting excited. And so is she. She says so on her long, lost blog!
  • Many of you have seen my countdown on facebook for the past 10 days or so! :)
  • 70% chance of snow after midnight & all day tomorrow. Don't need my schedule messed with this week! Don't want to have to fit meetings in while Amanda is here.
  • Had a good day today at Area. Am slowly easing back in to Service work. It is so important in recovery to stay up with what's going on around me. With other groups & other members.
  • I don't know about you, but I'm also getting anxious for the Rock and Worship Roadshow dates to appear!! I'm pretty sure they are doing both Spokane & Seattle again this year. We'll see. (soon I hope)
Have a blessed week, my friends. Will try to get a few pics next weekend.
