We hopped in our car and drove to Maple Valley on December 30th and spent two nights at Bill and Mary's house. We've known them for many years and it was so delightful to spend a relaxing visit at their home. Wednesday evening we went to a Shoreline bistro together to hear our other friends Jyl and Chris perform wonderful mellow jazz. On the 31st we spent the day relaxing and schmoozing with Bill and Mary's three dogs. Also eating all sorts of wonderful goodies. We played Pictionary and saw in the New Year together. What a lovely way to welcome 2010.
