Where did we have dinner tonight?

It must have started when Martha said  " your hair looks so cute"
     Then Sally said she liked my jacket  ( white with a furry collar )
        Later Ruth told me my hair looked very nice  ( even after a big hug )
          Even my daughter Tiffany noticed...

                       I AM HAVING A GOOD HAIR DAY

So I thought it was time to celebrate

1. We have not been free during the week for a long time and going into Seattle tends to be
     less busy during the week.
2. Still have not celebrated our anniversary
3. When was the last time I had a good hair day ?

Our waiter was Chuck
    My entree was chopped salad
       Dessert:     Zabaglione   

By the way, they are opening in Bellevue, March 17 ! 

I live an exciting life  .

Octogenarians...keeping an active life

Age is a factor.
        You have to live with it.
              ( is that profound or basic ? )
It just impresses me that there are some Octogenarians that never seem to give their age a second thought.

Like Marie.
      Marie has been living life to the fullest for so long. In fact, there is book about her and her hubby, so I will not go into all the details. 
       There is some proof of her gifts that I captured during a visit last Spring.

 At home in the kitchen. Homemade soup and much, much more
canning, lots of canned goods behind those curtains

                    Fine quilting
                      Very fine quilting

And that is just a taste.   

Our next visit was in December

The story is a miracle.  
Marie and her husband were out for a drive and suddenly had car trouble.  No sooner had Sandy gotten out of the car, than an ambulance came by and asked if they needed help.  Yes, they did, so Marie got out of the car, fell down a hill, landed in the mud and broke her hip.   And those medic men were right there.

So we were able to visit her ( you can see her smiling and agreeing to being photographed ).     When we said goodbye we had no idea that in one short week, she went to her heavenly home. 
There are no tears in heaven. 
But she is greatly missed here .
