Although I am currently in Seattle, I've been a bit housebound due to daughter's new baby, so I'm posting this photo from last winter in Belgrade.

Aging isn't for sissies, so they say, and it's even harder for some.

ABC WEDNESDAY--"G" is for "grandma again'

Little Nina,  8 lbs 7 oz, born Feb. 23rd, is the reason I haven't been posting on frequently....hang on.  I'll be back.  Nina is # 4 grandchild for me, gosh....

SKYWATCH--early morning

Not so terribly early, but earlier than I'm usually up nowadays.  Fifth Avenue in Seattle, with the monorail track on the right and two red lights straight ahead.

Twice Sold Tales

Twice Sold Tales is one of my favorite used bookshops in Seattle. It's jam-packed with all kinds of books, and they're organized really well. I have often been lucky to find just what I'm looking for and then some. The shop used to be in the University District, but has moved to Capitol Hill, where I stumbled upon it. The owner is a cat-lover, and though I am not, I fell for this orange cat. It must have liked me, too, since when I was paying, it padded right over to me, put its nose right smack on mine, then gently climbed on my shoulder and around the back of my neck.  Kind of creepy,but pleasant at the same time....

Oh, my.....there goes my will-power again, or lack of.  I like to go to El Diablo cafe on Queen Anne here in Seattle because they have good coffee and the atmosphere is conducive to writing, which I sometimes do there. I have also discovered they have luscious, good-old American-style cakes, like this devil's food one with coconut icing that I succumbed to.

I am fated to go "straight to El" for my sin, as you can see in the second photo. I can only hope that Satan has devil's food cake.....

Reach for the sky....or needle....

The long arm of the statue of Chief Seattle reaches for the sky...or Space Needle...or perhaps the satellite dishes on KOMO 4 News.
