Years ago one of my nieces had a nursery school called New Beginnings, or was it Great Beginnings. Either way, nice names I think. Today little Sean Ian had his first outing. He went to the Pancake House, and he managed to sleep through it all. But the rest of us enjoyed our lunch very much. 16 month old Ethan really tucked in to his pancakes. And I have never seen Caitlin eat so much – she loves those fried potatoes.

Susan considering the menu, Ethan reaching for something from Daddy, Caitlin doing a drawing – all at the Pancake House
Ethan has his ketchup all lined up – actually I think he is looking at a picture up on the wall – an antique photo of a line of cars in the 1920’s – Ethan is keen on cars and trucks
One more family photo – Caitlin and Ashley singing a duet, Rubber Ducky – this was at their voice lesson yesterday.
Now what else have I been doing – an outing yesterday down to Ballard to the new location of Dutch Bike. I bought a mirror which I thought would fit on the handlebars but upon closer examination when I got home, it is not suitable. I’ll have to take it back.
Dutch Bike is now located in Old Ballard. Quite a nice new location, not far from its old one but easier to find on Ballard Ave. I enjoyed browsing in the shops along the way. I managed to buy an old cassette tape of Billie Holiday, $3, and it sounds fine on my new/retro player. Also a Johnny Cash vinyl. Retro is good.
And as to knitting and crochet. I’m working away on knitting more blankets. I completed one, 2 more to do. And I have a big crochet blanket in process. Might fit a double bed pretty soon.
I nearly forgot to mention my excursion driving a manual shift car today. A bit of trouble getting it to start until I firmly depressed the clutch pedal. Then more trouble when I tried to get into reverse gear after I finished my shopping and wanted to drive home. That took a while to figure out but a passing shopper came to my assistance and between the 2 of us we managed. I feel a bit of a fraud with the vroom vroom of the sport muffler on the car.
