This morning dawned as I suppose most Seattle mornings do. It was cloudy and drizzly. Brett was awakened by a phone call early this morning. Tom Atwell, a garden writer, from the Portland Press Herald called him to do an interview about his worm composting operation. The Worm Wiz will be mentioned in an article at some point but we are not sure when. Once my little celebrity calmed down we needed to decide on a plan for the day. Brett was just as happy to not spend another day in the city center and I am most happy when he is happy so we did a fair amount of puttering close to home today. I did speak to Lowell this morning and he seems to be getting nicely settled into his routines with classes starting on Monday.
We got groceries for the boy yesterday and needed to get some supplies for us before we head off into the wilds of coastal Oregon. First we had fun trying out Gas Buddy and finding the cheapest diesel fuel near us. $4.39 hardly seems inexpensive but it was the best in the area. Then our trusty GPS showed us the way to an Albertson's supermarket.
Our waitress was a charming lady who had enough English to get by. She knew the numbers (you order by number) and "small, large, x-large" and thank you. We did just fine. I noticed 3 other Vietnamese ladies out in the kitchen.
This is my art find for the day and my new reusable shopping. It has a wonderful drawing of Seattle on it. Won't I look quite the character when I carry this around in the Hannaford while wearing my genuine, Western cowboy hat?
