How do you like to spend a rainy day?

Since I have the Wee One, I try to plan things for rainy days. Otherwise, she’s climbing up the walls-literally. She was on my FIL’s head yesterday.

List at least five favorite treats. (They do not have to be sugary).


Cream cheese and bagels

Onion rings
Where’s your favorite place to take out-of-town guests?

I don’t know where in Columbus, yet. In St. Louis, I take them to my favorite cigar bar, walk around downtown, and then down to Cherokee street or the West End, Depending on their mood.

In Seattle/Issaquah, I take them to Snoqualmie Falls, and to Issaquah brewing. Maybe Cougar mountain, too.

 Someone not too creepy. I am trapped, after all. For fun, a movie star who has a flask of burbon in his coat pocket.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

 The weather was beautiful last week, and awesome to be outside. Tomorrow is Cohiba’s birthday, and we’re all going to the zoo together-how cute is that?
