Seattle loveWritten by hootenannie on February 12th, 2010
I am on vacation in Seattle, and my heart is so happy I could cry.
Last night, as Greta and I were settling in to go to sleep, she asked if she should wake me up in the morning. In a moment of Shakespearean inspiration, what I meant to say was, “I’m sure I will rouse at the sound of you.” But what I actually said was, “I’m sure I will arouse at the sound of you.” We giggled. I’m still giggling, actually – here at Zoka coffee shop, all alone, laughing at my computer screen.
I just finished running in the rain around Green Lake 4 times. For those of you keeping score, that is 11.2 miles. I am flabbergasted at my own resolve and dedication these days, because there was a time that I couldn’t run 4 laps around a track, let alone a 2.8 mile loop.
Sorry to not have anything more sparkling to share (although, seriously: AROUSE!). But frankly, my dears, I have places to be, and a haircut to enjoy. Happy Valentines Day!
