This month was a perfect day for 12 of 12 - too perfect. It was a Saturday, Scott actually had the day off, and it was unbelievably beautiful weather in Seattle. I actually took about 160 pictures yesterday - so narrowing it down to 12 took me a while:
6:32 a.m. Sunrise.
11:38 a.m. Finally got my hair cut. Feelin' good.
12:15 p.m. Heading out for the day. The lilac "bush" at the side of our house. It's ancient and huge. Within a week or two it will be filled with fragrant white lilac blooms.
1:01 p.m. Mmmmm ... Wendy's. Burgery goodness.
1:22 p.m. Molbak's, one of our favorite nurseries. We're plant junkies. But we didn't buy much today since it's still early and we'll still get frost. But the ranunculuses (ranunculi?) were beckoning us.
2:49 p.m. Yes, this is Seattle. Yes, it's April 12. Yes, it's 80 degrees. Yes, we were doing our happy dance. Yes, that's Scott making a funny face in the mirror.
2:59 p.m. Heading west on the 520 bridge over Lake Washington, back into Seattle. The Olympic Mountains are in the distance, across the Sound. Husky Stadium and the University of Washington are on the right. Sometimes we're just in awe of how beautiful this city is.
2:59 p.m. A picture taken out of the sunroof, looking southwest to Mount Rainier.
3:00 p.m. Looking north over Lake Washington towards the Cascade Mountains. There were lots of boats on the water today. I was glad. It would have been sad if the boats were under the water.
7:28 p.m. After playing in the yard with the dogs for a while, we cleaned up and headed to dinner. I love this house, right around the corner from the restaurant. It has a copper roof which has weathered to a beautiful patina over the years. I'm not so crazy about the pink garage next door. I used to live in John Mellencamp's town, but I still don't buy into the idea of little pink houses for you and me.
8:02 p.m. Our friend PPP took us to our favorite restaurant, Dulces, in the Madrona neighborhood of Seattle very near our house. Mmmmmmm. I didn't want to use the flash inside, so I got a blurry picture of Scott almost licking his plate after the Gambas en Salsa Verde.
That's all for this month, kids. Happy 12 of 12!
