Had a good day yesterday with family. Eric (sil) had a great fishing trip in Alaska - he came home so excited - with lots of stories. After church we had baked salmon, rice, and salad. It was soooo goooood!!! And for dessert, ice cream and watermelon.
Kathi (daughter) and I cleaned up and then we played a couple hands of Canasta. We wanted to play more, but we were all so sleepy. So, I came home and I am sure they all napped. I was going to, but sat down with my knitting. Geoff, the son I live with, came in and put in another episode of "House" so there I sat.
We really like that show and have about 3 seasons now. Time to get another - I think we have watched all of these at least 3 times.
Am off today - and have a to-do list - and here I set - on the computer, enjoying the warmer weather and bright sunshine.
Well, time to get up and get at least a couple of things accomplished today.

Our BBQ yesterday was a big success!! We had hamburgers, chicken and hotdogs - and enough food for the whole neighborhood. And there were only 12 of us. We have just a small, flat area behind the apartments and then a drop off down to the river. Started out in the sun but the shade soon covered us and it cooled down. I have lived here 4 years and some of the people i had not known - two gals work swing shift and two others (sisters) are very busy with all their clubs, etc.
Everyone agreed that we need to do again later this summer -
Now I wish I had taken some pictures - I have never been a "picture-taker", but love to see pictures on this site. Helps to get to know people a little better. Will try to remember next time.
Looks like it may be a little cooler today - only into the 80s. And, right now there is a cool breeze - hope it lasts as that would keep the temp down.
Have a great day and stay cool!!

I gotta get going this morning and here I sit at my computer. Have tracked breakfast, read a couple of blogs, and found updated my status. But, I think I will just have another cup of coffee and enjoy the cool morning. It will be in the 90s this afternoon.
Tomorrow my son-in-law leaves with a group of men for a fishing trip in Alaska. He is so excited!! My daughter said he has never done anything like this - he is a hard worker and puts his family first. So, when the men at church were planning another trip this summer, I asked her if Eric would like to go. When I mentioned it to him, his eyes just lit up!! So, I am paying his way -
He called me and asked for my order. I told him I just want him to relax, have a good time, and catch whatever. The halibut run is great right now and there is lots of crabbing and clamming - so we will have lots of good eating when he returns. The place they are going is 153 Fish Camp and they have a great website with lots of pictures. I keep going there and daydreaming. I do not fish but have always loved camping. And, this looks like a great area to just enjoy nature.
Well, it is time!! The clock just won't wait for me this morning and my to-do list for today is rather long.
Hope you are all having a great day and staying cool!!
