…bring back the snow! It started snowing in Seattle last night, but as of this morning it has turned to rain. Ashley has to drive to work this morning, so I hope the roads are safe for her.
I got into Seattle Monday night, and it’s been a pretty low key trip so far. I haven’t taken many photos because my days haven’t been overly picture worthy yet. Yesterday I woke up relatively early and I went on a beautiful 4 mile run through the Green Lake area of Seattle. I wish I had taken my camera because the sun on the lake was gorgeous, but alas, I did not, and my phone camera couldn’t do it justice.
Despite being sort of sunny, the run left me freezing! Seattle is definitely colder than Vancouver – which surprised me. After my run, I came home, ate a snack and then went with Derrick to Tai Chi. I have never done Tai Chi before, but I really enjoyed it! It was slow and meditative, but we also a half hour of yoga-like postures, and I felt great and stretched out afterwards.
Then we hit up the grocery store to get some eats for my time here. Went home and made lunch and then I headed downtown on the bus to meet up with my boss for a part time fellowship that I’m doing. I’m helping plan a retreat for young people who want to be more involved in their family’s philanthropy and want to work for social change. My boss lives in Seattle, so it seemed like a good time to get some face to face work in.
The bus is always a great place to people watch; there was this lovely woman at the front of the bus who was dressed all in red and listening to music. She was dancing up a storm in her seat and I thought to myself, “that’s someone who loves life!”
After working for a few hours, I wandered around downtown Seattle a bit before hopping back on the bus. Ashley and Derrick both do Kung Fu and had class, so I decided to whip them up dinner. I made veggie burgers and salad, and I guess they were good, because Derrick had 3!
For your eating pleasure, here’s the recipe:
Not sure what I’m going to do today because the weather has turned rainy, but I still have more work to do so I’m going to start with that!
