In the spirit of staycations, and given an unexpected work-free day, I called a friend and suggested she could use some fun, given the fact that she is currently caring for an increasingly frail extended family member. I know how caregiving can sometimes make a person weary and even sap the joy out of life. So off we went to Woodinville wine country. We toured Willows Lodge (can't wait to stay overnight and try the spa), and had lunch on the patio at the Barking Frog. Just to prove we can be geeks, and don't get out enough, we actually took photos of our food. Its presentation was just so lovely.
