Five things that made me happy today – 11/30/19

The whole world is a series of miracles, but we’re so used to them that we call them everyday things. – Hans Christian Anderson

1. Up way before dawn, to catch the 5:35 train. Cold, cold, cold. 25 deg. And still dropping. Bill kindly took us to the train station and will return the rental car for us. Arrived in Portland 20 min early, so we had a 5 hour layover, but the temperature warmed up to 42 deg. It felt positively balmy. Temps at home were 43 deg. when we got here – much nicer than Kennewick/Richland/Pasco.

2. Beautiful weather and vistas along the Columbia River once the sun came up with gorgeous views of Mt. Hood.


3. Since we had so much time to kill in Portland, we treated ourselves to brunch at Fogo de Ciao. They’ve recently added brunch on weekends so we had omelets, waffles and bacon with the Market Table.

4. Final score Oregon State – 10, Oregon – 24 #GoDucks in the final regular game of the season. Next week Oregon plays Utah for the PAC-12 Championship.

5. We arrived back in Tacoma between 5:30 and 6:00 – pretty much on time. We tried to call a taxi and the dispatcher said it would be 45 minutes before anyone could pick us up, so we ordered an Uber and our driver turned up in 5 min. (Also about $10 cheaper than a taxi ride.)

How about you? What made you happy today?
