Sunshine On My Shoulders

Beach Boys – Kokomo

Here in the Okanagan valley, we have skipped from a coolish spring, to very comfortable early summer days.  This is valley of daylight hours, we get plenty, and in a valley where there are few days lost to rain.  I know when I moved here I thought the weatherman here had it figured out; it would rain after 3 a.m. and be all sunny by 6 a.m. – perfect!

This is close to Penticton on the north east side

Reading? I enjoy reading, and right now my book is “Snow White Must Die” by Nele Neuhaus, a well established author who is German and she lives near Frankfurt so it is not surprising that is where this novel takes place. So far I have enjoyed it, and it is a tense book, easy to read and I think it might be like “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” – a superb series, don’t spoil it by seeing the movies first.  Looking forward to reading it, just not before I go to sleep. 🙂

I planted some seeds for various herbs and also for peas this year. The seeds have germinated and soon I will move them outside. The cilantro and other herbs I may put in a large flowerpot, this is an experiment to see if I can grow my own fresh herbs. Wish me luck!

We are in the 5th month of the year already, one-quarter of the year has passed. Surprised? I am and I am thinking about a holiday – I love it here in the valley of course but still it is fun to visit other places. This won’t count for a holiday but definitely will make a trip to Seattle this summer. It has been a few years since I have made it down to see the Mariners play, had popcorn, garlic fries, and enjoyed the atmosphere there. If you live close to Seattle, take in a game, and do the tour of the stadium if you are just visiting Seattle even if a game is not scheduled. It’s really fun.  The Space Needle is cool also, and everyone has to do that once in a lifetime if you live reasonably close to Seattle.

Sorry if this post meandered a little, enjoy your day, and count your blessings as I am doing this week.
