Now that we are in full swing of beautiful fall days I think I’m finally over my mourning of another summer gone. I so did not want to see this summer go as I feel like it was a weak version of the last 2 summers. The weather has been so spectacular the last few summers I even started saying, “If this is global warming, bring it on!” I know, I KNOW how wrong that is to say. Please try not to judge this sun loving Seattleite.
The thing is I could vote with my feet and move. (See what I did there, putting my $50k, 1985 dollars economics degree to use?) My bestie just packed up and left for the blue skies of Tuscan. Turns out I really like my life here in the Northwest. And, a sunny January trip can really help lift the brain clouds. Bestie, girls weekend in your new hometown?
Anyway a good old fashioned cider pressing a mountain ridge and 150 miles away, and a glorious sunny 78 degree September day can really lift the spirits.
And the joy of extending my Y hike program into September was pretty awesome, too. Cougar Mountain was a fun way to make new connections outside the doors of our building.
Side Note: Who knew that it would rain Wednesday after Wednesday? In July? And, then in August? Members turned out anyway. Again, I know, I KNOW! I won’t melt.
So nope, did not pick any blackberries because, as was already covered: wimpy summer. But I did get to play frisbee with my boyfriend.
