A Love/Hate Relationship with Seattle

Once it turned summer here in Seattle… in oh.. the month of July.. it’s been gorgeous. Everything is green… it’s warm outside.. but not too warm. We can go take a walk in the afternoon and not feel like we are being cooked by the sun. And.. Monday evening around 9-ish, when I was driving to pick up Josh from the airport, the sun was setting.. and out my windshield.. I could see Mount Rainier.. huge and imposing… and the snow on it looked pink.. from the sunset. It was fantastic. Made me wish I had a camera. And just when I am thinking I really like it here…

Then comes Tuesday. When I woke up Tuesday morning I was so cold. And it was cold outside. And cloudy. Gloomy. The clouds were supposed to burn off in the afternoon. They didn’t. Enter today. Same thing. Booo. I don’t like wearing a sweater to work in July and drinking hot tea because they insist on having the air conditioner on. Not liking it so much anymore.

Come back, summer!

September 2006

When I take photos, I go through them afterwards and pick out which ones to edit. I often don’t get around editing all the ones I plan on. So today I took out my external hard drive and went through some of the photos I took when Steph and I went to nyc in September two years ago to see which ones I should go back and edit. Here are a few..
