We started the month with a day out to a cat cafe near our house and a trip to Bainbridge Island. Oddly enough, the cat cafe wasn’t serving food or drink so we just got to pet kitties for half an hour, which is perfectly fine by me. We walked on to the ferry to visit Grant’s friend Sam in Bainbridge Island. We walked around town for a little bit (I bought a few books) and had lunch in a dry outdoor spot.
We got a lot of snow here in Seattle… for a few days. It came down over a Friday night and everyone was out Saturday and Sunday enjoying the weather. Sadly, we didn’t have a sled but enjoyed watching everyone else have fun at Green Lake and walking around with hot cocoa.
The snow melted quickly thanks to the rain and the weather has been really nice this last week, so yesterday Grant and I went for a hike at Twin Falls about an hour outside the city. It was an easy-moderate trail (about 3 miles round-trip) although crowded on the weekend, but the views were worth it.
As usual, I’ve been working full-time at marine hardware store job and liking it, especially now that I’ve actually got the hang of a lot of things and am being acknowledged for my work more!
