August 12 of 12

12 of 12. Started by Chad. Something to look forward to doing each month.

These pictures were all taken on Thursday, August 12, 2010 in Seattle, WA. Please fasten your seat belts, turn off all electronic devices, and enjoy.

7:46 a.m.: Foggy Seattle.

5:37 p.m. Sunny Seattle.

5:38 p.m. Four Columns Park, overlooking the freeway, the Convention Center and the Paramount Theater from Capitol Hill.

5:40 p.m. I like this apartment house.

5:43 p.m. A run-down apartment building with a sense of humor.

5:57 p.m. Matterdays wants a haircut.

6:02 p.m. Finding out that my uncle died. A month ago.

6:25 p.m. Chinese lantern plant starting to bloom on the balcony.

6:26 p.m. Sweet boxwood basil blooming. Probably should have used more of it for cooking before it bloomed.

6:26 p.m. The pond and backyard from above.

6:39 p.m. Dishes.

7:16 p.m. Carbonara. It's what's (going to be) for dinner.

Thank you for visiting Matterdays 12 of 12. We know you have a lot of 12 of 12 options, and we appreciate you making Matterdays your choice. Please watch your head while exiting, grab a couple of beers from the galley cart, and step clearly away from the emergency chute when you get to the bottom. Thank you, and buh-bye.

....And they say Seattle has the same weather as london-even we don't get that fog in August!

Sorry you had to hear about your uncle that way.

Some great building shots and lovely blue sky when the fog cleared.

Watch that Physallis (Chinese Lantern plant)-it will go everywhere-as much as knot weed-pain in the backside to get rid of!

Great Day!

Thanks for letting me see your 12

What a fun 12. Seattle must be beautiful, for or sun, as you always capture it so well. Love the apt. name......wonder if it's a stinky hell hole inside. I be your dinner was good. Make pesto with all that beautiful basil. ! I made three batches the other day and froze them in ice cube trays. Yum. See you next month.

I can't believe you are only finding out about your uncle after a whole month Matt, that's crazy! Our condolences :(

Definitely prefer sunny to cloudy Seattle, and the back yard is looking great too!

we have flowers that still haven't bloomed. It seems wrong somehow doesn't it?

LSL said...

I'm sorry about your uncle, Matter. :(

And I hope we keep seeing you around in Blogville!

I like the apartment names lol!

Sorry you had to hear about your uncle that way, and so late :-(

I do love the foggy and sunny photos though - they're both pretty in their own ways!

Sorry I'm late commenting - my own 12 only went up on the 16th lol, as I was visiting friends. But better late than never for posting and commenting ;-)
