  • Sometimes when it gets really sunny I think about how happy plants are.

    [For full blog reading experience, please put on a pair of sunglasses and smell the flowers blooming all around because it’s SPRING Y’ALL]


    Helloooooo.  The high today is supposed to be 72 degrees.  My family in Beaverton says it is supposed to be even warmer there!  I’m lovin’ it.  My apartment is on the third/ top floor of our building and when it is warm outside, our apartment heats up like an oven.  So even in the high sixties after I walk up the hills to get home and enter the room, its super warm.  That also means I get to open all the windows and get a nice breeze.  I sat on our deck and played guitar for a while yesterday which was super nice.  When it gets nice here in the PNW, it is BEAUTIFUL.  

    Here is a picture from my window of the sun shining and if you look between the buildings, you can see the space needle (which was recently painted “Galaxy Gold” for its 50th anniversary but it really just looks orange).

    I also went to Seward Park last week which is a beautiful park with Old Growth Forest.  This is Signe being weird in the forest. 


    Even though rain is supposed to return soon (SURPRISING), this glimpse of what is to come is so encouraging.  Things coming up: Senior Toast, Senior Soiree, QUADSTOCK and more.  So excited. 


    Yours truly,
