sunny days

i had set some goals about posting about a new place to visit or shop every monday. my place today is seattle when it's 80 & sunny. i spent all weekend outside & am feeling happy about a little sunburn on my arms & back. friday really started all of this with dante's & an outdoor lunch, a work party & nas at the showbox sodo. saturday started off with a sunny breakfast, a bike ride around lake union, 3 wonderful hours on my favorite people's (craig & ragan) boat & happy hour on teresa's roof (where she fed us well as usual). it was a wonderful day filled with sun & great people. sunday was the best kind of summer day - lots of random meetings. the day started in the park with divya & rachel, moved to the farmer's market with teresa, natalie, divya & i, coffee outside at top pot, pedicures & meatsticks (sometimes you just need one), a bike ride to ivars with marques, chris, justin & yachi (joined by the d, g & rachel) & finished up with a cool down on lost episodes at marques's. phew.

items of note & highlights:
- the house boats on lake union are so great. lots of character & color
- lake washington is kind of cold, but not as bad as i thought
- teresa has an amazing roof view & is one of my favorite people to be fed by
- on summer evenings, the seattle sky has the most amazing tone & feels so warmly lit
- the farmer's market is back & i couldn't be happier
- ivar's has great happy hour full of oyster shooters & fish & chips
- my bike is in intensive care. i am in need of a new one asap

i am working on uploading a slideshow. for more pics
