Mia's brother Brian and friend Arden invited us to his house for a Saturday afternoon walk on the beach and dinner on the deck of their house.
They live above Puget Sound with a beautiful home that has some great views of the water as well as the surrounding area and the Olympics on a clear day.
I knew we were supposed to go on Saturday. Somehow with all the issues I had been facing this past month I got confused and accidentally scheduled myself to work Saturday. Talk about an idiot.
So I went to work and my grandson Zach filled my shoes and escorted Mia to the affair in my place. He did an excellent job and I was very proud of him.
When I got off work I went over and walked down to the house. From the garage on the street it is about 1/8 of mile down hill to the house. It is steep and not without hazards. I succeeded in making the trip down and found my son, his wife Emily and son James, Mia and Zach all sitting around enjoying the view with a rip roaring fire going in the outside fireplace and dinner close to ready to serve. We had a great salmon dinner with salads and a lemon cake. Great times with the family. I got to play with James and he was being really good to me.
I have a very long week ahead of me. Have a great week.
