January where did you come from and where did you go?
Today marks the beginning of the summer season. I AM SO READY for the warm weather. Today’s high is in the 80’s. Bring on the heat, watermelon, carne asada, pie, long weekends, flip-flops, ice cream trucks, neighborhood parades, family time, outdoor movies, zoo concerts, swimsuits, sun roofs, sun dresses, sun screen & sun kissed skin.
Last night I went to Grüner for a work dinner with some new friends from InStyle and People. Grüner focuses on Central European dishes with a PNW edge. We ordered spãtzle, trout, schnitzel and the like. But my absolute favorites of the night were the pretzel and the donuts with raspberry filling! Want, want, want!
All week the people of Portland had snow on the mind. Our weathermen and weatherwomen could not stop talking about it.
Three to seven inches were predicted and sure enough school was canceled Thursday. We got our snow, early Thursday morning a whopping 1.5 inches of snow covered the valley floor.
The snow was not worth all the hype, it wasn’t even cold outside. But it sure was pretty. B and I had enough time in the morning to enjoy a winter walk in the morning with Mike and it was good we did, the snow was all gone by the afternoon.
Today marks one year with my little dog Baron. Enjoy the year in pictures…
Baron was adopted last year from the awesome Portland dog shelter Family Dogs New Life, a no kill dog shelter that has the sweetest puppies and dogs of all ages. I suggest you check it out if you are looking for a four-legged friend.
