Living Green Olympia: November 2008

Let the Holidays Begin!

I am getting excited about the holiday season - which is a good thing because here it comes, ready or not!! I had a great time at the Oly "Bearzaar" on Saturday, strolling around to all the booths with a past client/friend.  We both found several stocking stuffers that NEEDED to be purchased and other items that we couldn't quite decide about.  Many good ideas, too, if only I had the talent to try to make things myself!

Now the Thanksgiving feast day of good food, good company & probably more football than I really care about is just ahead.  We have been trying to describe to our exchange student the history of how Thanksgiving first happened as it obviously is not a Slovak holiday!  I think he thinks the food, football and no school sound like marvelous ideas!  And we will all add some thankfulness for the good things in our lives.

Then I have to make that decision that can only be made the night before - do I really want to hit some of the early, early, crack of dawn early sales that will be going at many stores Friday morning?  The years when I have gone, it was fun, but very exhausting, so I am indecisive so far.  Although I am certain I want to get to my favorite bazaar later Friday at St Martin's Pavilion in Lacey!

And there will be a host of fun family activities bringing in the Christmas season downtown Olympia on Sunday!  Between noon and 5 PM at Sylvester Park downtown there will be great activities for kids like free wagon rides, Santa for photos and wish lists, a choral ensemble, chime choir and bagpipes for musical entertainment, Olympia's holiday parade at 3 PM from Farmer's Market to Sylvester Park, and then a singing Christmas tree and tree lighting ceremony!  We are THERE!!

I am hoping for some good, or at least dry, weather this weekend to make a trip to see the salmon spawning. We are lucky to have two great spots to watch this amazing real live nature show - one is on the McLane Creek Nature Trail and the other is… more

We just got back last night from a long weekend getaway to relax at Lake Chelan. When we finished hauling all of our stuff back in (HOW does it take so many things for just a 4 day vacation anyway?? ) I noticed we had a phone message blinking away. … more

I LOVE to shop at holiday bazaars - so much fun to look at all the creative things that are beyond my abilities to make but that I would much rather give as gifts than mass produced "stuff". I have a list of personal favorites that I try… more
