Jon and I are finally getting a little bit more settled in to our new house. It’s fantastic to see our stuff starting to take shape into a home.
We took a break from the chaos to check out the Cheese Fest this weekend and had a really good time! Less cheese than last year, though that translated into less crowds. It was so sunny. Just a really great day to be out at the market with friends.
This pic is from last year, and the crowds weren’t as intense, but at least it gives you a little bit of an idea of what the event looked like:
Around noonish, we (heather, steven, yelena, ben, jon and I) had eaten enough cheese to give us bellyaches, and did what all reasonable people would have: decided it was time for wine.
If you’re in belltown and in need of a bottle of wine, I definitely recommend stopping into Seattle Cellars. The guy that was working (owner?) recommended three fantastic and vastly different bottles all in the 10-15$ range. They were perfect for the afternoon. The wine shop has a cooler with about 20 chilled bottles of white, rosé and sparkling, which is important to know if you’re looking for something to drink right away.
Onward and upward. Literally. Today’s adventure takes us to Steven & Yelena’s rooftop deck, with a fantastic view of the city, the sound, and the mountains.
…and our new house!
…which is incredibly close to quite a few friends. How cool is that?
We live on the west side of lower queen anne. For any non-seattleites out there, that’s midway between the sound picture above (we’re really close to the “coast”) and the space needle.
What’s that in the backround? The seaplane! Are you listening, mom?
As we settled in to our afternoon of
sunburn fruit and wine…
…we noticed that the sky was doing a weird apocalyptic sort of thing. How odd is this? Anyone ever seen the ring around the sun like that before?
Is it the end of the world? Perhaps. Or maybe it’s just time for another glass of wine. Pass the rosé please!
