It has taken me a few days to get out of work mode and into vacation mode. We are staying about 3.5 hours (driving time) from our house which results in hotter weather with clear blue skies. As you have probably gathered from past blog posts, the western Washington area is usually cloudy, wet, and cool (55-65 degrees F). However, once you drive over Snoqulamie Pass and enter the eastern side of the state, you get hot, dry desert weather. We now have high 80s to low 90s, clear blue skies. Did I mention blue skies? Yeah, we can see the sun here.
Now, summer is the best time to be in Seattle because the cloudy skies are really now blue skies. The weather is good. The new channel is teasing us with reports of sunshine and temperatures of 70-80.
The Lake Chelan area is beautiful. It use to be just apple orchard country, mixed in with some cherries, and then a sprinkle of vacation condo resorts (lots of timeshares here). Over the past 15 years, Chelan has added about 23 wineries and more tourist activities such as ziplines, jet skis and boat rentals, etc. There is a great and affordable family waterslide park called “Slidewaters”. Great local pizza joints and hamburger places. Heck, and there is sunshine every darn day!
300 days of sunshine…you can’t complain about that especially when it comes with a 55 miles long lake with clear blue water.
Let’s get something straight….everyone wants to feel special. They might say that they don’t want to be special, they don’t want to be noticed but, in reality they do. Regardless, everyone wants to be special whether they admit it or not.
If you write a blog, you know this to be true. Sure, you can say you write your blog for yourself, but secretly you hope it becomes hugely popular and you have an extremely large following of devoted followers.
You can say you are an introvert and therefore don’t want to be noticed. This isn’t true. You might be very outgoing when you need to be, yet hate to be around people. You can write an extremely funny blog yet never be able to hold a conversation at a party with new people.
However, on the flip side, if you are comfortable with the people at the party, you are the life of the party.
Everyone says extroverts are the outgoing ones and you want to be around them. However, they dominate the conversation because they need to be always “on”. I think extroverts are a overwhelming. Extroverts love to hear themselves talk. Introverts have the power to turn “on” (or “off”) the “outgoing” side. Introverts have the ability to sit back and not say anything. They can melt into the background, hide in the crowd, and just observe.
I, like everyone else that blogs, hopes my blog takes off and becomes hugely successful. It would be ideal to sit back and construct witty blog posts everyday that lead to more and more followers.
