Lisa Rinna?

Resort logo looks like Lisa Rinna as a mermaid, don't ya think?

Reunited, and it tastes so good

My first bowl of the famous Dory Cove chowder in 13 years, Yum! Without a doubt it is the best around!

A little too close

I'm very uncomfortable being this close to an Anaconda.  Yikes!

This day in history

I saw this blog post yesterday. The author, Derek, links back to blog posts that he has written on March 1st for the past decade.  I haven't been blogging long enough to do that, nor am I a reliable enough blogger to be able to link back to past posts the way he did but it got me thinking about creating something similar.  I do keep detailed calendar records and used that archive to note the following significant things about March 2nd in my life.

2003: Spent a quiet day at home (I was living with my Mom and Step-Dad in Salt Lake City at the time) in preparation for the following day which was my first 8-hour work day since completing chemotherapy in December 2002.

2004: Sat in a room at St. Mark's Hospital and did clinical chart audits from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

2005: Moved into my apartment in Queen Anne (Seattle) after a few days at my brother's house in Port Orchard and one night on the dining room floor under moving blankets. You can read more here.

2006: Mom and Rick (Step-Dad) made their first trip to Seattle since my arrival so that Mom and I could throw a baby shower for Kristen (my sister-in-law).  We had dinner at one of my favorite neighborhood spots, Buckley's.

2007: My little brother Jimmy was in town visiting from Salt Lake City.

2008: Don and I returned from a weekend trip to Cannon Beach, Oregon to celebrate my 5 year cancer-free anniversary.  You can read about it here.  You can see the pictures here.  I blogged about my first 3 years in Seattle (complete with chart) here.

2009: Spent the day at work but was barely able to walk thanks to sore muscles from hiking the Dungeness Spit the day before.  You can see pictures here.

2010: Spent the day at work and then had yummy crepes and wine at Citizen with Don in the evening.

Don't know what today will bring, we shall see.  :-D
