Making plans


I'm spending spring break at home this year...

Re-energizing. Recuperating. Reorganizing.

And...planning for our Party of a Century.

My planning includes trying out various retro recipes. Dear friends are serving as guinea pigs for possible party entrees.

Fondue anyone?

Equally engaging is our Road Rally Scavenger Hunt planning. Party goers will be working as teams, driving to various locations important to Spokane's history, while solving clues and accumulating points. Through our research, we're learning even more about Spokane's history.

Did you know that Theodore Roosevelt visited Spokane several times and pronounced it "Bully"? Actually, that doesn't suprise me a bit. Spokane seems like Teddy's kind of place.

Today was a beautiful day in Spokane.

So beautiful that Norm and I took a run/walk along the Centennial Trail. Every time I walk, run, or bike along this riverfront trail I am struck with how blessed we are to have this jewel throughout Spokane and into Idaho.

Many people seemed to agree. There were fellow walkers, runners, people roller blading, many kinds of dogs on leashes...all with smiles on their faces (yes, even the dogs). Even after a mild winter it feels so good to be out, watching the river and the geese flying overhead.

Thank you!
