It Was A Marvelous Night For A Moondance...

Yesterday, the cleaning spirit hit me again (previously this week I already cleaned out the fridge top to bottom!) and we cleaned out the whole garage, did some re-arranging, cleaned several kitchen drawers and sorted out all the plastic containers that always seem to be mixed up: what a great feeling to have all that behind us now!  {smile}

We were just about to settle down for a quiet evening when we got a call from our lovely daughter: if we would please come and join her friend and his dad for an impromptu barbecue at Lake Washington? Yes please!
I used a 'tilt-shift' filter here to provide some privacy...

They have been building a new house and it is almost done, but not quite: no toilets or electricity etc., but a working grill, alcoholic beverages and some comfy chairs on the dock, what more do you need? Above to the left you can see the Ceder slatted siding that will cover the whole house. Eventually it will turn a silvery grey made possible by the weather...

The kids went swimming and had time to catch up about their vacation adventures etc.  Nice to spend some time with friends...

And the moon came out and we made a fire and it was just lovely...

PS: Just to clarify: they are not living in the house yet. Hopefully in a week or 6... (the move-in date keeps on being postponed by the contractor)

To celebrate our last days together, Miss M. and I decided to go on a walk to Rattlesnake Lake, just past North Bend, WA. It was ...
