Happy Sunday!

I am siting here in bed, with my laptop, enjoying my favorite Sunday morning activity,---
Blog hopping! It is my temporary escape from the world to peek into the creative lives of
others and to gleam ideas from my favorite artists. Today, as I was reading the Moxie Fab blog, I was led down a rabbit trail to the PANTONE color website. Very fun!
Wow, what a visual treat it was for me. I was particularly interested in the projected spring fashion colors, because those usually go hand in hand with paper trends.

I can't believe how fast time flys.
It has been over a week since Dan and I took Dayla and Daemyan to Cougar Mountain Zoo in Issaqua. It was a gorgeous day but COLD!!!!!
The zoo is pretty small, but I was impressed at how clean and well kept it was. Staff was everywhere and very friendly and helpful. The zoo has a BEAUTIFUL view of Lake Sammamish and the Cascade mountains.We went for the Reindeer Festival , but as Daemyan pointed out, we did not see Rudolf. oops! Dayla got to sit on Santa's lap and BTW, she wants an elephant. I told Santa good luck! Daemyan did not want to sit on his lap as he had decided that this was not the REAL Santa! Cute kid! As cold as it was, Miss Dayla did not want to wear her coat. Even her part polar bear daddy had his coat buttoned up tight! We concluded our little trip with a visit to the gift store where Dayla picked out a puzzle of an Orca whale, Daemyan picked out an adorable little stuffed white tiger, Dan, a Jody Bergsma mug with a cougar on it and I got a stuffed Santa, snowman and reindeer decoration. Cute! We will definitively be back, pehaps when it is warmer!
