 Ten on Ten ~ 
September 10, 2017

Enjoyed clear blue sky in Renton ...
the fire haze smoke has cleared!

SEAHAWKS had a winning preseason, 
but lost first game of the regular
season to Packers, 17-9.

Happy Birthday #70 to my 6 month
younger cousin, Frank VanHoof!


Enjoyed eating the last few blueberries, and
freezing some blackberries! 




Can hardly believe this!
Anticipating going to the FAIR ...
it will always be the 
PUYALLUP FAIR
to me ... 

September always has me remembering
"back to school" ... as a student
and as teacher for 38 years!
Blessed to have loved my career and
now loving retirement!!

Ten On Ten ~ August 10, 2017

A wonderful day that included going
 to Enumclaw for the gathering of
alumni who graduated 50+ years ago,
and back to Tahuya!
 
 

Favorite T-shirt sighting at 
Enumclaw reunion!


Still enjoying August temps in the 80's,
and less "haze" from the
 British Columbiaforest fires.
 Still anticipating the green
tomatoes turning red! 
Always enjoythe "book fair"
 opportunity and flower color!







Always love the sunsets!!

Enjoyed  errands

Ten on Ten ~
May 10, 2017

A career "artifact" from 
Seattle Pacific University ... 
I was an "adjunct professor"
while teaching some
 inservice classes.

Thank you April showers (pouring rain) 
for the colorful May flowers in Tahuya!






Learned from another morning walker 
about a bird nest on a beam under
the Shorebrook dock ... 




 Afternoon game snacks 
and beach walk with 
neighbor dog Molly!




 Good night moon!
