Doozy Times in Seattle

  1. You obviously had a fabulous five-day trip. Seattle looks lovely, my husband’s cousin lives there and I’m thinking a visit might be overdue, I too met up with a fellow blogger yesterday. We had an epic chat. It was as if we’d known one another for years. 😎

    1. Ahem, what a coincidence! πŸ™‚ Rather a neat one. Maybe someday in Nice or Figueres. πŸ˜€
      Seattle is so scenic that a visit is well worth it, I think, in any season.
      How glorious it was today! Hope you are enjoying pottering around the city. xx

      1. It was snowing furiously in Portland where Adi is. I am a bit envious, but also embracing the clear skies. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you! The pleasure is mutual. I am looking forward to hopping over to your blog and read yours. I bet there is a whole lot waiting for me.

      Pike Place is one of my favourite markets in the world. It feels festive in any season. I wish you a wonderful time this holiday season. The cheer is infectious. πŸ™‚ xx

    1. Thank you Caroline! I read your latest and am due to pop back to it. Because I read it and had to abandon it before leaving a comment. I wish you all of the goodies this holiday along with enough mulled wine to take the chill from it. xx

    1. Hey V, do you get any of the comments I leave on your posts? I wonder. Anyway, thanks for returning always. πŸ™‚ Holidays are to be spent in the city, nesting and traipsing around. What are yours? Xx

  4. Sounds like you had a fun time with your nephew and niece. Oh sneakers! Tell me about it. My kids (esp my teen) know so much about them as well. Hahah… Indeed Christmas is just around the corner and as usual, I look forward to your Christmas post πŸ™‚ Is it going to by NY? πŸ™‚

    1. Oh yes, NYC alright, because I travel to India at the very beginning of the new year. I love Christmas at home, and really, this is just perfect. Though Adi has been moaning about the Christmas markets of Europe. He says it is not Christmas without them! πŸ˜› I told him to put a lid on it and not sound like a spoilt brat. What is your jam this time?

      I bet your kids enlighten you all the time about the latest in the world of teenagers. πŸ˜‰ xx

      1. Give in to Adi! It’s actually a good idea hahah. We’re headed to the Philippines starting next week, trek a couple of volcanoes this time and do a bit of snorkeling. It’s gonna be a hot Christmas.

      2. Whoa trekking volcanoes sounds like my cuppa tea. You go girl! (I would stand on top and beat my chest and finish it all up with a gigantic mug of beer) Is any of it going to figure in your scheme of things?

        I would give into the husband’s demands, but I am rather into nesting, before I leave home for more than a couple of weeks. xx

      1. It will be a great way to usher in the new year, Neek! You guys have a wonderful season. We are doing well, thank you. Cannot wait for Adi to wrap up work and then take to the streets of the city for Christmas-window gawping. xx

    Hair growing longer?

    1. You suspect right. Nephew follows in his uncle’s footsteps and wants to shoot past the 6’2” mark.
      Hair growing longer indeed. A nice change from a prolonged bout of shorty short locks.
      The food was absolutely divine. On cold grey days, I dream of these dishes.
      Thank you for dropping by, Brianji. πŸ™‚

  9. It was lovely to read your blog and relate to the time spent together with family. Vacation is one of my favourite times to enjoy with family amidst all the usual chaos. We still have confusion, but with many people around, everything looks delightful. Thanks for taking us on a memory ride through your words.
