This is a photo i took from Vashon Island from our spring break vacation. We had really good weather, barely any rain, some great wine. I ran 11 miles total (over two days); read three books (Zeitoun, CeeCee's something or other and Conversations with Tom Petty); and I lost two games of gin rummy ($7 total) .
I don't really have anything to say, but it's been awhile since I changed this blog so here i am.
Here's the first gin game i lost. The wine pictured was given to us by Rita and was very good, it's a Malbec by Adagio Reserve - i've only recently been discovering Malbecs. I like venturing out from the regular Cabernets and Syrahs. We also had a great roussane viognier blend one day, but it was a splurge at $30 so i don't even think i want to remember it.
This photo is of a sign that has been in the Vashon cabin since we've been going. I think since around 2006, but i really cannot remember. I just know that we have seen many remodels and changes over the years, mostly all done by Rita's husband Carl, who really seems to know how to do anything.... and i like that they still kept this sign.
Hope everyone is having a great spring! Stop by sometime and tell us what you're up to.
Notes to myself:Longest run this week: 1 hour, 38 minutes
Sunset: 7:52 pm
Latest iTunes purchase: a band called Alabama Shakes. They're new and very good...especially the lead woman's voice. It sounds a little bit like Janis Joplin. My nephew Brian sent me a YouTube a couple of weeks ago and i really liked them. They have a rather unique sound, though not unlike Black Keys.
Best book I've read lately: Zeitoun was written by Dave Eggers. It's a true story about an American Muslim who rescues dogs and people during Katrina in his canoe only to find himself arrested as a suspect of being Taliban. What happens to him is an outrage that this was only a few years ago.
