Rain, Rain, Go Away... We want to go outside PLAY!!!!


I really hope that the weather reports are right. They say that most of Sat and Sun are supposed to be nice. It has done nothing but rain here for weeks! I was at the right place at the right time to get this photo. The clouds broke just long enough to see the mountains on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge.

OSU Beavers Baseball

I will be the first to admit that I am NOT a follower of the national past-time. However, I do really like going to watch games. So yesterday my husband, my manager and I went to one of many Civil War baseball games between the Oregon State University Beavers and the University of Oregon Ducks. The game was held at the PGE Park in downtown Portland. My husband and I are huge Beavs fans, my manager is an OU alum. So the game was fun having a group rooting for both sides. The fun was capped off by the Beavs winning the game 2-1! We only suffered through a slight rain delay (Rain Rain, GO AWAY - we want to go out and PLAY!)


With Beavs on the brain, I had to check ... Only 100 days until the first OSU football game of the season!!!

Salmon


I love a good barbecue. Luckily, my husband is great behind a grill. We actually bought a new bbq a few weekends ago. Its been hard using it though, with the rainy weather we've been having. We just set up the quick shade and brave the drizzle tho. Our very favorite to bbq is the fresh salmon that can be caught in our area. Nothing like it!!!

Wild Mountain Flower


Not sure what this little flower is called. But its an early bloomer up on Mt Hood. When we went hiking a few weekends ago, it was one of only 2 flowers I spotted, the other being trillium. And it was the only one around too!!! The blue color was so bold, only softened a little by the very light yellow stamens.
