I’m enjoying my time here in Oregon. Great to see friends and family again. Almost like it was only yesterday that I was here. (Well, so of…)
I’m keeping my visiting schedule in an Excel spreadsheet so I don’t double book. I have a list of 32 people or couples that I’m meeting and the list keeps growing. It keeps me busy.
I’ve been shopping and cooking for the past few days. Fun to walk through Fred Meyer and see all of the food options. Nothing like it in Europe from what I’ve seen so far, but I don’t get out to the suburbs when I travel so maybe that is where I could find the larger stores.
I’m looking forward to going to Hood River on Wednesday with my cousin Donna. We are meeting with our attorney who is handling Cousin Bobby’s estate. I expect a few more trips to Hood River over the next couple of weeks.
I still haven’t made reservations in Poland. Think I’ll stay for a week in NYC before making the jump back to Europe.
I’m looking for some sunshine, but I have to remember where I am. I still have a couple of weeks here and I’m sure I’ll see the sun eventually. Where I’m staying you can see Mt. Hood, but the clouds are getting in the way. No matter. I’m here to see people and totally understand how the weather can be.
I’ve decided to only post a few pictures on my blog. I’m running out of space where my pictures for the blog are stored and will use Instagram and put in a link in each posting I publish. It might be better using Instagram so I can organize my pictures and put descriptions with the pictures. I’ll try this out in the next few days.
