I had no idea that it would create such a flurry of emails and comments.
Thank you for taking the time to write and for sharing your thoughts...
Just knowing that google was responsible for the sudden drop in followers makes me feel better.
I write the blog as a hobby, not as a job and post only when I feel the desire.
Readers are important...I'd be kidding you if I said it didn't matter.
It is not for the "approval" as one commenter mentioned...
there is comfort knowing that there is an audience of readers out there.
So without further adieu...
Mr. HB and I have been away on a little jaunt to Seattle and we returned last night to our cozy Bungalow, which was well taken care of by our house sitter...who also took great care of our cats.
View from the BC Ferry crossing the Strait of Georgia.
The Clarks are super comfy and we walked a lot!
The new leather cross body bag by Maggie turned out to be a winner.
Not too big and the area at the front has a pocket for my IPhone which is handy for taking pictures!
My carry on bag had plenty of room as I packed light.
I wore my Barbour jacket
NYDJ skinny version
took various Eileen Fisher tops
a dressy pair of ponte knit pants
my new coral top and sweater.
a warm grey knit pullover
Burberry cashmere scarf
walking shoes by Clarks Artisan
It was chilly walking around downtown in Seattle and there were rain showers.
I got a chill and so I kept sipping hot beverages.
Turns out the chill was a warning of a cold coming on.
It is the first cold that I have had in over a year!
Pike Place Market is always on our list of spots to visit when we go to Seattle.
The flowers are really beautiful and so reasonably priced...
Love white bouquets with simple greenery.
We had lunch at a French cafe...
the menu was much like those I visited in Paris.
Ham, baguettes and cornichons.
Olives, salads, oysters, terrines, sausages.
We enjoyed a steaming hot bowl of French onion soup.
When we visit Seattle we always stay at The Mayflower Park Hotel.
It is comfortable, the location is close to shopping and situated close to many fabulous restaurants.
Valet parking, an award winning bar ~ Oliver's
a restaurant ~ Andaluca
prompt room service
The staff are efficient, polite and friendly.
Old world charm built in 1927...the same year that my Mother was born!
I'll be keeping close to home until I shake this cold.
Will work on a few more snippets from our trip and post them when I get time.
Thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow Blog!
