Just a few more days of summer, and then…whoa, are we really headed into September??
I'm not one who likes to turn the calendar page prematurely, so how 'bout I post a photo retrospective of my weekend trip to Oregon? (See also: things I did on my summer vacation.)
amp; me, perched on child-sized chairs, sharing a giant cuppa tea at Tazza's in Beaverton. I could have lingered with her for days and days….
Here, one of the many houses in which I lived…one of several in the Portland area alone.
A happy reunion with Roi San, who was a source of light for me in high school. I consider her a kindred spirit to Luz, whom I wrote about in DEAR BULLY.
Haystack Rock, in beautiful Cannon Beach. (See the pint-sized Scottish Terrier–a small black dot at the water's edge? I loved that he wagged his tail at every incoming wave.)
I spent a sunny afternoon in a Portland-area park. My sisters and I swapped childhood memories–some savory, some sweet–over a delicious picnic lunch. Left to right: Mei-Ling, me, and Sheryll.
A bedside visit with my sister Heidi. Brave girl, she's held MS at bay for many, many years. She has very little mobility, and no sensation in her fingers, but boy howdy, that girl can paint!
The outdoor venue for my niece's wedding. I may be biased, but I think my escort's kinda cute (meet my son David, if you haven't already.) It's a bit hard to see–and perhaps harder to believe–but I'm wearing a befeathered fascinator in my hair.
Action Slacks performed live in Oregon City, as part of their Concert in the Park series. I'm one of their ultimate fan girls, and not just 'cause David's at the keyboard. (Lovin' those retro outfits? You can purchase one of your very own from Loudmouth Golf (Action Slacks' corporate sponsors).
Now that I'm back, I'm looking forward to catching up with all the latest at your end! xoxo
