Birthday Sunset

Birthday sunset. Seattle, WA. June 30, 2017.

Gorgeous sunset to close out my birthday. Margaret even joined me on the roof to watch the sunset and take a few photos!

Toe floofs in the shade


It got up to the mid-90s in Seattle today, and it was officially the hottest day of 2017. We cancelled our plans to be outside to stay indoors where it was significantly cooler. Our cats did their best to stay cool as well. Sheena, our crazy orange long-haired cat, spent most of the day sprawled out under chairs and hiding in the shade.

We got an awesome Vornado vintage pedestal fan from Margaret’s parents earlier this year. Since we live on the top floor of our 6-story apartment building, it can get a little warm during the summer (we have a north-facing apartment, so it’s not as bad as it could be). It has been especially nice to have when we get home from warm walks. We can just crank up the power and stand in front of the fan to cool off. It also happens to be beautifully designed and constructed.

Cooling off


It’s the second day of summer, and the temperatures are rising. It got up to the mid-70s today, which I thought was very comfortable. Others felt it was a tad warm. It’s supposed to get up to the 90s by this weekend, though, so they’re in for more heat.
