Busy week in Richland, WA - USA

Dear Family and Friends,

Chuck and I have had a very busy week in Richland.  We had a lot of "to do's"  which we got accomplished I am happy to report.  We also shared time with family and friends.

The picture is of Heidi and Cannon, our grandchildren that live in Richland.  My grandma name is "Mimi."  How wonderful it is to be with them.  They are growing up so fast and are two terrific kids.

Right now Chuck and I are headed back to Seattle.  Chuck's sister Audrey is flying up from California to spend the weekend with Chuck's brother's family and with us.  Audrey, Carolyn and I have planned a weekend of thrift store power shopping.

When we return to Ecuador, we have one week to pack for our trip to Spain.  We leave for Spain on March 1st.  It is my goal to shop for our six weeks trip this weekend at the Goodwill, Salvation Army and other thrift stores.

The purpose????  I can throw out clothes as we travel and lighten the load.  Also, since I am packing in just one medium size suitcase, if I empty out as I go I can buy some goodies and bring them back.

I will share the shopping adventure and the final results on the next post.

Brrrrr, it is chilly up here.

Have a great day!!



  1. What a clever traveler you are!
    See you when you get back home to Cuenca!

  2. THRIFT STORES!!!!! I'm so jealous Nancy. I'd love me some bargains...

  3. So glad you are having the time to be with your grandkids, "Mimi"!
    Great idea to shop at the thrift stores for your Spain trip.
    Have a great time and hi to Chuck!

  4. Another trip?!! Nancy, you and Chuck are truly "jet setters"!! And it looks like you are having so much fun spending time with your adorable grandchildren!

    I look forward to seeing your new "Thrift Shop Travel Wear!! Nancy, you are quite the trendsetter.

    I've heard of shopping for new clothes for an upcoming trip, but buying used and throwing out as you go is such a novel idea! So clever.

    Enjoy your time with your family and I look forward to reading about your upcoming adventures in Spain!
