The Lily and Mom Sunday G.O. (get out) project continues – though a rainy Easter almost had us abandon the project today in favor of movies and cozy blankets. Instead we forced ourselves out for a rainy hike in Forest Park and were both happy we did. I forget how much I love hiking in the rain, especially when you know dry and warm are waiting for you at the end of the day. Afterwards we had a late lunch and then home to dry off and warm up again. On the way home we listened to Emmy Lou Harris spotify and a song by the Story Sisters came on – a song I absolutely love and couldn’t have been more perfect to end this day –
And I will hold you dear
While my shadow’s long and my eyes are clear
I know these days will pass away
So, I will hold you dear
And a catch up from last week – we both had a lot of work so instead of a hike, we visited a new coffee shop. The Stacks Coffeehouse in North Portland – it is a library (you can get a card and borrow books here), writing cafe and coffee shop in one small storefront – instant favorite.
