Last Wednesday, my husband and I took a little jaunt up to Spokane so he could attend a business meeting on Thursday morning. It would be easy to just run up for the day, but now and then it's nice to take a little time out of the schedule for something different!
We left town mid-afternoon, making a stop in Cheney to have dinner with son Kevin and his fiance, Sarah. Having him in school so close to Spokane has made it convenient to drop in on them for a quick visit when we're over that way - a bonus for making the trip! There's a great Mexican restaurant, El Rodeo, that we like and Kevin fills his tank. The boy can eat! After dinner, Gary and I drove on to Spokane and our hotel by the Spokane River.
Leaving the Tri-Cities behind didn't mean we left the gray skies. No, the entire state was getting rain that day. But by mid-morning on Thursday, the rain stopped for awhile and I got out for a nice walk along the river.
After checking out, I drove around town a little, finding a nice spot with a view to spend some time stitching while waiting for Gary's meeting and lunch to be done. Other times, I've done some shopping, but this trip I enjoyed the quiet and the needle and thread.
This trip made me eager for spring and the opportunity to get away with the trailer once again!
