Saturday Snippets - Totally Missed It

I came home from work on Tuesday and Chuck was cleaning out the garage and side yard! He had rented a truck and had already taken one load to the dump. I changed my clothes and went out to help. He got the side yard completely empty and we got about 2/3 of the garage cleaned and swept.

Sharaya and Allie came over for dinner on Wednesday and we played Mexican Train again. One of the reasons we love it so much is because we can all play it.

I completely missed Thankful Thursday. It was a long day at work for me because I redid a few things at my desk.

Earlier this year I had put up a taller wall to get some privacy between me and the front office. I had so much work and trying to help run the front office was just too much. It worked well for a while, then a couple months after I did this, Covid hit and we closed. Now all the reasons that caused me to put it up no longer exist.

I also needed more storage space. There was always stuff piled on my filing cabinet, I just didn't have the room to store everything.



Now I can't wait to go back to work on Monday!

Beth and I took the ferry over to Kingston yesterday. This time we walked to the little shop and ordered ice cream. (We had crepes there when my sister was visiting.) It was so good on a hot day!

I took this hoping Mt Rainier would show up better. I've outlined it so you can get an idea of how big it is. The small shapes below it are the skyscrapers in downtown Seattle.

Have you been on any adventures lately?

Nice before and after in your work space. It's nice to see that businesses in Kingston are surviving. Glad you could enjoy the ferry crossing with a treat!

I love the before and after pics. We haven't gone on any adventures per se but I'm teaching myself to sew which has been quite an adventure.

My son lived in the Seattle area for 7 years, he was stationed at Ft. Lewis-McChord, then settled near Auburn. We visited him several times from NY, and Mt. Ranier is my FAVORITE place, went there three times. I've also taken the ferry to Bainbridge a few different times through the years. It's lovely. Now my son moved back home, and I probably won't be visiting Seattle anymore. It's a beautiful city. I like reading about your adventures! I do have a daughter in Oregon near Portland, don't know when I'll be flying out to see her...and a son and daughter in California...anyway, it's so nice to see you going out and enjoying life, I love your positive attitude.

Way to go on cleaning out the garage. Game time is always fun! Your office space looks nice and organized. Glad you and Beth went on your little adventure. Looks like it was fun. I need an adventure!!!

I've seen Mt. Rainier once from an airplane. I was looking out our window as we took off from Seattle to fly back home after a church conference there many years ago. I was looking at the clouds, and all of a sudden realized I was actually looking at the top of the mountain popping up through the clouds. I took several pictures! It was exciting to me! Love your pictures and your weekend. Sounds like a busy time. I also like your new office design. I do understand about the need for privacy at work...I had a similar job as yours and was thankful to have my own office away from the front desk...but people still managed to find me! LOL. Have a good week this week enjoying your new space!
