What I like Wednesday: Sloan’s Lake

Shari and I walked around Sloan's Lake for the first time this past weekend. I've lived here for 9 years and had never been. I've driven by it, sure, but for some reason I had never taken the time to specifically visit and walk the park. I had been missing out. A 2.5 mile sidewalk…

6-13-21 Mountains, pool, friends, movie

Summer is in full swing here in Colorado. The gloomy days have finally passed, I think, which makes me feel both happy and sad. Happy because it means more sun and heat and those lovely puffy white clouds I adore. But also sad because it means hot nights and the apartment's AC is old and…

What I like Wednesday: Colorado’s Free Tours

A handful of companies and organizations around Colorado offer free tours of their facilities and I love it. As we all know, spending time in and around Denver can get expensive between the restaurants, the movies (minus Elvis Theaters and Century Aurora!), the concerts and events. So it's nice to put away your credit card…

6-3-21 Memorial Day Weekend 2021

What a wonderful weekend I had. Saturday I met my friend, Meseret, at Thai Pot Cafe, a delicious Thai restaurant you would miss if you didn't know it was there. Thankfully, somehow she found it for us because, while they don't offer yellow curry (my go to), they had a fantastic cashew stir fry that…

What I like Wednesday: Denver’s Vegan Restaurants

I am very grateful that there are a handful of restaurants that are vegan or vegan friendly in and around Denver. Below are my favorite restaurants where I know I will always be able to find something I like. Watercourse: Delicious "chicken" sandwich. Couldn't ask for better (and thank you to the waiter who told…

What I like Wednesday: Denver’s Interactive Options

Denver does such a great job of providing unique interactive opportunities that I wanted to list a few here for this week's post. My friend, Kayla, discovered the Lost Book of Astrid Lee in September 2020 that the History of Colorado Museum put together. And while she was in Oregon and wasn't able to participate,…

What I like Wednesday: Colorado’s Many Hot Springs

Want to soak in some hot water while your eyes wander around a gorgeous view of the mountains? Colorado is lucky enough to have a variety of hot springs accessible to the general public. I've only been to two during my time here but the fact that we even have two options (let alone the…

What I like Wednesday: Denver’s Comedy Scene

Now, I may not be into dirty humor or crass humor or humor at the expense of a person's feelings, but I do still enjoy laughing. Who doesn't right? Thankfully, Denver attracts a handful of comedians that make me giggle and guffaw so hard that I have to take deep breaths in between jokes. I…
