Skipping Blogtember today, I went swimming instead…

I’m going to skip Blogtember today and yes, it is because I’m intimidated by the topic.[Blogtember Day 12 – Creative writing day: write a (very short) fictional story that starts with this sentence: “To say I was dreading the dinner party would be the understatement of the century.”] I love dinner parties, so I can’t imagine dreading one!

Today after work, Mr. F and I went to the beach and swam in Puget Sound!image It was in the upper 70s but the water was still 55 degrees. Fortunately, it felt warmer after a lap! Mr. F swam for 40 minutes but 20 minutes was plenty for me.  image We both had super cold hands when we got out of the waterimage so to warm upimage we got burgers in Ballard at Lil’ Woody’s!  imageimageWe also got cupcakes next door at Cupcake Royale, imageincluding the new seasonal flavors Huckleberry Buckle, Pumpkin Maple, Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel and Chocolate hazelnut praline!

It’s so fun being back in Seattle. I always make the best of traveling for work, but it also makes me appreciate my town more! Mr. F and I love swimming in the Sound and will hopefully have a few more chances this fall!

Please feel free to tell me real people read my blog and not just spammers comment! Cheers!
