Having a week between shows is not always a luxury I have. Last year, when I was looking at the shows in the Western Washington area I found the Monroe, WA show. It was 2 weeks after the Sewing Expo 2017 Puyallup. So I'm forced to slow down, especially since I'm at friend's house in Olympia and don't have the usual list of chores that I always do when I get home from a show.
Sleeping in, Check. Watching a lot of rain, Check. Spending lots of great time with my friends, check, check. I even took a drive into the little town of Tenino, WA that my parents and family lived it. I didn't spend much time there, Junior College and working all the time kept me very busy, then I went to WSU over in Pullman, WA and they moved back to Southern CA my Junior year.
Tenino, WA is pretty much how I remember it. I actually had to call my younger sister to ask her where buildings were. The horse Ranch T9O is gone. I used to work there. Now it sells Alpacas, not quite the beautiful horses that I got to work with every summer.
