OMG


How time runs away! I've really missed my blog and blog family- I hope you haven't forgotten about me! In between actually doing a lot of things, I have had a pretty much continuous migraine and been sort of medicated.
I have been on several different trips (Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier, as well as my dad's). The cats are a bit upset, and even Bean has become a lap cat, which she never has been. As we speak, LOKi is draping himself and his formidable weight on my arm as I am trying to type. So much competition!


We went to Mt. Baker with a couple of our MINI friends. The weather was beautiful, and since they have a MINI convertible, they had the top down most of the way.It's a very curvy steep road to the top. It always amazes me how quiet it is in the mountains, even when there are a lot of people around. Once we were above the treeline, the fall colors came out- not in the trees, but in the bushes. I think the light up there does something to the brightness and contrast . We drove a bunch of backroads home, even finding the industrial district of a very samll town (B was navigating).


Mt. Rainier wasn't quite so successful. I think we had more rain yesterday than we have had all year. It was pouring. I was afraid the windshield might break. We had 45 MINIs, but I couldn't see them. I'm so glad we took the time to wash and wax the car. Fifteen dollars to get in the park, and then a windy river to Paradise, which is at the 6,000 foot level. I'm sure the mountain was somewhere up there. At some point I just couldn't stand the rain anymore, and we cut our losses at Paradise and did a solo descent, which was actually quite fun, minus the mini-vans and SUVs that were going way too slow.
Now I am getting ready for Halloween. I went to the pumpkin patch and picked out five beauties, along with some MINI (ha-ha) pumpkins. I found the boxes of decorations, but they haven't made it up the stairs yet.
Oh, but I have plans!

Good to see you post again!
Cool trips -- don't you hate it when rain spoils a mini-vacation (pun intended!)
I've never been inside a mini -- are they spacious or are they for petite people only?

Hope to see pics of your Halloween decorations & pumpkins soon.

Hi Morgen- MINIs are pretty roomy inside. We have a member in our club who is 6'7", and fits fine! Sort of surprising.
