I couldn't come up with a clever title and my thoughts are disjointed, probably because I'm tired, it's late in the day on a Monday, and I'm not sure what we are going to eat for dinner.
We spent most of today outside, first walking and then working in the yard. That's another post.
I'm posting about the weekend. Saturday the rain was light as we sat on the sidelines for Irene's 12:30 soccer game. It was a victory for the Shooting Stars. Then as we settled in at home, the rain intensified, and the sky was dark and gloomy. We were happy to sit and read and catch up on recorded TV shows.
We knew, because we study Weather Underground to plan our days, that it would be clear in the morning. Yep, Sunday morning we went out for our 3.35 mile walk in the neighborhood, enjoying all the color in the trees now, especially in our little neighborhood park.
Then we showered, got geared up, and by 11:00 we were on our way to the light rail station, heading into the city for the final Sounders Soccer match of the season. Pleased that the weather was dry and not cold, we participated in the march to the match, lunched on stadium hot dogs and popcorn, and watched our Sounders beat Colorado 3-0 to advance to the playoffs in second position in the Western Conference. Now we will be adjusting our calendars so as to be available for matches at home and away for as far as they go in the playoffs.
We didn't linger long in the stadium because we had a date with Jill and the kids to meet them at the pumpkin patch. Jill and Isaac were coming from his soccer match in West Seattle, and it took us a bit longer to get home by light rail, grab our boots and join them down in the valley at Carpinito Brothers Pumpkin Patch. By now it was 5:00 and lots of people had the same idea, since it had been so rainy in the days before.
Irene helped us pick out our pumpkins, since they already had theirs.
We looked at all of the pumpkins and gourds and the produce.
People were snacking on roasted ears of corn and kettle corn and shopping.
These guys did the same, each kid having an ear of corn while we were looking it all over and checking out.
And then we took them out for dinner at Azteca. It will take a few days to work off the big platter of Mexican food I had, but it was yummy.
And now I'd better go figure out what's cookin' here tonight.
