What A Day!

(and it is only noon...)
Imagine U2's song here in the background...
And yes, there is a tractor in this picture!

This morning I just felt the energy flowing. Since it is rather hot out here these days I decided to go for an early morning run, i.e. 8am! I ran my 2 miles in a time I haven't done for a while, spent 10 minutes on the stationary bike and did some floor exercises (which I despise!) I still had energy left and the sun was shining brightly so I decided to go on an actual bike ride...

Click! to enlarge...

First I cycled through Tolt McDonald Park, then to the Snoqualmie River hanging bridge and stopped by a little yard sale where I found these fabulous vintage buttons. I didn't have any cash on me so I raced home and borrowed some money from Miss M.'s piggy bank and raced back to the yard sale. Chatted with the proprietor, a visitor (half Native American half German, got to speak some German as well) and a neighbor who lived in my dream home... (see below)

I cycled a bit further along the river and through the fields with horses and their babies, 9 miles / almost 15 kilometers in total.  What a day and it is only half gone!  {smile}

Some pics of the beautiful Cosmos flowers I have in my backyard right now. I hope they'll bloom the rest of the summer!


  1. Ziet er heeeel fijn uit allemaal!

  2. Ja,ik ben een beetje high van alle endorphines, maar dat geeft helemaal niet!!! ;-)

  3. Ik kan begrijpen dat dat je droomhuis is :-) !!
    Het is daar wel echt een prachtstreek waar je woont - wat een mooie natuur ! (Ben zelf ook eerder een plattelandsmeisje en geen stadsmadam...)

    Enne, ps, proficiat, grondoefeningen... Respect... Lopen, fietsen, no problem, maar grondoefeningen, bwèkkes, dat háát ik (en doe ze dus nooit - geen wilskracht genoeg...)

  4. Prachtige foto's alweer.
    Vooral de eerste, wat een schitterende wolken.
    Jij woont daar in het paradijs.

    Dat gele huisje is werkelijk prachtig. Bij jou in de buurt? (ik zou er gerust kunnen wonen zeker met dat weer dat jullie daar continu hebben)

    Prettig weekend,


  5. Beautiful post, beautiful pictures - what a lovely place you live in! And I'd have scooted straight home to get money for those buttons too
    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

  6. It's fantastick what good weather can do! You're full of energy, underbart! We're having the most terrible weather springwise in, I don't remember how many years, but it's not fun, I'm drained of energy.
    Lovely pictures!


How wonderful to hear from you!

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
