It has been a good weekend here in Seattle The rain has dried up, and the sun and warm weather have returned.. Looks like we'll have summer back all week!
My time was measured around sports events. Friday night we went to Tad and Jake's house to watch the US Men's National Soccer Team match against Costa Rica in the qualifying round for the international Gold Cup. Unfortunately the US lost, but will play on, meeting Mexico next week in Columbus, Ohio.
Saturday evening we joined 38,00 soccer friends for a Sounders match. It was hard fought and tense, but fortunately, the Sounders won, and have now pulled themselves up into second place. It should be an exciting two more month of Seattle soccer.
Of course that other football, the US style, started this weekend. I was up at 8:00 this morning, late for me, got in a 3.25 mile walk, and was in my recliner for the 10:00 Seahawks game against the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte. And yes! Seattle won that one too!
I'm not sure what I did with my time in between these events - some reading, some exercising, some TV, some blogging and Facebooking, oh, and some on-line shopping.
We have decided it is time to join the modern era again and get smart phones. I am really interested in the new Nokia Windows phone, but only AT&T carries service for it.
I have read some reviews for phones and service providers, and the more I read, the more confusing it becomes.
How about some input. What smart phone do you have? Do you like it? I want a good camera in my phone. Does yours have one? What service provider do you use, and are you happy with the cost and the service? What kind of data plan do you have?
Any information you can supply will be appreciated and considered.
And with that, I'll be signing off for a few days. In the morning, we are going to Whidbey Island for a late summer vacation, and so Tom can do a few fix-it projects. I plan to be lazy. I'll take my lap top, but will only be connected if we get to a coffee shop where there is Wifi. See, that's why I need a smart phone!
I hope you are enjoying the last few official weeks of summer too.
