For the most part the ice and snow that blanketed our area this past week is gone. My high schooler got two snow days which I believe they'll have to make up at the end of the year. Of course, my homeschooled kids kept right on with their studies, with some time off for shoveling and play. The Cascade Mtns. are still being bombarded with a huge snowfall, receiving over five feet just this week and completely closing the main interstate highway with no opening in sight at this time.
So with I-90 closed over Snoqualmie Pass, yesterday DH and I took the Columbia Gorge route over to Suquamish, Washington, which is just across the Sound from Seattle. It's the long way, but much more relaxing to travel in rain showers than snow blasts! We made a stop at the Apple store in downtown Portland to have the Geniuses take a look at my malfunctioning ipod nano. Good thing I made my reservation with the guys ahead of time via their website or else I would have had a two hour wait! But they were very personable, friendly and helpful and we walked out with a replacement - yay!!
We're here for a Super Bowl party that the insurance agents association DH belongs to hold each year. Football fans we're not, but it's a fun party!
I've been working on that christening gown. Here is the embroidery on the sleeves. Check back for more updates soon.
