A new business seems to be up and running in Lynnwood. Breakfast and Burger Bar looked open and serving customers when I drove past this morning.
So, let’s welcome our new neighbor!
Month: January 2014
Just read a Timbuk2 ad which I found quite clever, and a bit thought provoking.
“Resolutions are typically about things you don’t really want to do”.
Gives me pause, for I find it rather true. The whole notion of resolutions seem to be about things I “should” be doing, or doing better. Rarely have I heard a resolutions about things we love. Perhaps the best resolution, at least the most productive and inspiring one, should be a resolution to do more things I truly love. Or, if you prefer to focus on the negative, resolve to do less things that suck.
Resolving to focus more on the things I love, the things that give me joy, and take the energy away from those things with maximum suck-a-tude? Ok, I guess there’s some joyless tasks we all must do, but give that less energy/less time? That I can rally behind.
My family’s habit: head to Bellingham for New Year’s Eve. Personally, I enjoy the calmer vibe. Having lived downtown Seattle, I had my fill of crowded mayhem.
We spend the day wandering Fairhaven. For me, a stop at Tony’s is a must. Lunch at Avenue Bread or at Colophon are other favorites. My favorite bookshop, Village Books, has a great sale over the holiday. Plus, simply walking through Boulevard Park makes for a great time.
I delight in this town and always enjoy time spent here. Bellingham owns a piece of my heart.
