Seattle trip

We were so crazy busy and distracted with our beach vacay and prepping for Perry's departure last summer that we never took our 20th anniversary trip, so even though we were in the middle of redecorating, etc we went ahead and left for Seattle last weekend, just the two of us. It was cold and rainy, but we still enjoyed it. Here we are in a small restaurant in Pike Place Market. This is a cool place.

Part of the whole

After our water softener exploded and shorted out its neighbor, the furnace, we decided to use the insurance money to replace the appliances, paint and carpet (upstairs and down). We also decided to use some savings and redecorate and slightly remodel the upstairs while we were at it. This table was one of the new pieces we bought. It is a work in progress, but things are coming together.
