This Week's Fave Five

Here are my fave five for this week, without photos.

1. Visiting my brother and sister-in-law. Flower and I drove up the Columbia River Gorge on Tuesday, crossed the Bridge of the Gods at Cascade Locks, and spent three hours at Bonneville Hot Springs swimming and soaking in the mineral waters. Then we had lunch at Charburger,which is a tradition started by my parents a long long time ago.

2. Visiting my brother and sister-in-law. We sat in their back garden under the stars one evening around the fire and roasted marshmallows.

3. Visiting my brother and sister-in-law. We picked fresh tomatoes, beans, corn, and apples from their garden and took the produce in the house and ate it.

4. Visiting my brother and sister-in-law. Flower and I walked her usual four miles on the trail around the local golf club.

5. Visiting my brother and sister-in-law. My bro drove me to the Oregon Convention Center yesterday and picked me up again after so I could attend the first day of THE KNIT AND CROCHET SHOW sponsored by The Knitting Guild Association and The Crochet Guild Association. I took two classes and learned a lot about how to *whispers scary word* mathematically calculate design and size changes in a knit pattern. (The teacher used words like Euclidian geometry and discrete math.)

This has been a wonderful and exciting week! And I still have two more days here in Portland to store up memories!

Join others at http://susannesspace.blogspot.com/ and celebrate their Fave Fives this week.

So I'm going to put myself way out on a limb and say that your favorite things this week is being with your brother and Flower!! Love all your five. I'm so glad you are filling your time with some good memories. Ahh girl you lost me on the knitting class...
marshmallows I understand, Euclidian geometry, not so much...It's a cool work though, she says out loud "Euclidian".

That trip for #1 sounds wonderful. My kind of daytrip for sure. And the fresh garden vegetables you mentioned has me drooling here. I'm not a gardener but I sure love the fresh vegetables from the effort! Great list!

Hi Willow...I'm glad you have having such wonderful visit....it really does sound heavenly.

But...mathematics? Shudder! I'm glad it was you and not me in that knit and crochet class.

I am not sure I could ever list math and favorite in the same paragraph. :> Relaxing, good conversation, fresh food, exercise - life is good! Enjoy!

What a fun-sounding list. Is "Flower's" name really "Flower"? What a wonderful name, especially since it sounds like she shares your love of nature.
