It's cold and foggy this morning. We just finished our 1.25 mile walk - I felt much better walking today, but it comes and goes - but it was cold, 44 degrees. My fleece jacket and knit gloves stayed on for the first time since last spring.
Yesterday was sunny and bright when I met my sister Laurie for lunch on the waterfront in Tacoma. I was a little early so I walked down the shore line a bit before going to claim our table at the Harbor Lights restaurant and wait for her inside.
We had a good conversation, catching up with our stories about our kids and trying to make sense of what's going on in the news. We ate chowder, fish and chips, and then dessert!
I had a small chocolate mousse but Laurie had Wild Huckleberry Ice Cream! I had a taste and it was wonderful.
After we left the restaurant we walked down the shore for a bit and then found a good sitting log on the beach and talked some more.
Laurie lives about an hour and a half south of me so we don't get together that often. We sort of met in the middle, closer to me than her, and we might need to do more of this. We are the only sisters left.
Outside the fog is slowly lifting. Tom and I are planning to get outside this afternoon and do some yard work. Now that it is getting cold, down to 39 last night, it's time to start putting the garden to bed. I think we have one more dry day before the rain returns for a while.
As they say, make hay while the sun shines.
