- Unpack right away (For me this is a must. I am obsessive compulsive that way).
- Wash all the dirty clothes (another obsessive act)
- Download all vacation photos(More than 500 photos, Yes, this is a typical number when I visit new places. My philosophy is, ‘What if I never get back this way again’.)
Without further adieu I would like to introduce you to a great city. When you visit here are just a few things you should do:
*walk around the city (you can\’t enjoy it if you drive)
*try a food cart for lunch – my 2 favorites right now are the
Jook Joint (Asian Fusion – try the coconut corn fritters,
so great) and Squeeze Berries (the best fresh juice smoothies).
They are located beside each other on 10th Ave.
*Find a great coffee shop; experiment they are everywhere.
*Hike through Washington Park and end at the Rose Gardens
*Visit a winery or one or two or three
*Have dinner at the many microbreweries\’ or restaurants
in the city.
A Killer Burger perhaps?
*Visit Mt. Hood (it’s amazing)
I could go on, but I will move on to the day after (returning home).
Question: Doesn’t everyone pickle jalapeños after returning from vacation?
Sorting through a pile of mail
Sprucing up the garden
Picking veggies (banana peppers, jalapeños)
Last on the list – what to do with 3 1-gallons zip-lock bags of jalapeños. Of course, make pickled jalapeños (nine jars to be exact).
