Tuesday Cuppa Tea...MIA...Summer intervening...Kids, Visiting

I just wanted to let you know, my dear and patient blogging friends and participamts in Tuesday Cuppa Tea....

that I won't be posting for a bit. Got a call yesterday from my out-of-state son and daughter-in-law for my birthday (39 again!) and they are coming today...we are off to pick them up after church. So have been scurrying around getting things ready!  They will be here for over a week, and we will be doing lots (we call our son the Tour Director) so I don't think I will have much blogging time. We plan some local trips around the Peninsula....

my daughter-in-law wants to pick some lavender at one of our local Sequim lavender farms,

we'll be heading for the Hoh Rainforest in Olympic National Park in the far West End of the Olympic Peninsula...which last month broke a rainfall record...the least rain for July since 1899...still more than most areas of the country get in 3 months....

and spending time at Salt Creek Recreation area, part of the Washington State Park system  just West of Port Angeles. That's what we know about, because that's what they have asked to do.  Plus...whatever occurs.

So have a wonderful couple of weeks...I know we will, and I'll be back on when I can. It hopefully will also give my hand/arm the final time away to complete some healing as well. So two birds with one stone...


  1. Have a fun time Ruth! I don't think I realized how beautiful your state is or that you lived on a Peninsula!

  2. Hi Ruth,
    I hope that you have a wonderful time with your son and daughter-in-law. After seeing your photos I would love to visit those places too. Rest up. Take care,

  3. Have fun! It all looks like great places to visit and make memories :)

  4. Happy Birthday!! Enjoy your family.

  5. Have a happy 39 again birthday dear Ruth and many blessings! Gorgeous images from your home state! Enjoy the time with son and Dil! Big hugs to you!

  6. Hi Ruth, I have been too busy with arrival of our grandbaby this summer. I keep trying to get to your post, and now you are off. I know you will have a great time. Jim and I are hoping to sneak up Poulsbo way next week for a little break. Not sure if that's going to happen, but will try.
    Mend and rest and just enjoy family.

  7. Oh, how dreamy to visit a Lavender farm! The parks are just enchanting - incredible beauty! Hope you have a wonderful week,

  8. Dear Ruth,
    Happy 39th Birthday! (wink, wink)
