Nooksack Falls … and Blueberry Happens

I thought yesterday was going to be one of those days you wait for all week. You know the kind I mean? Hit the snooze button a few too many times. Grab coffee and snuggle back under the covers for a while, leisurely planning your day off. Yeah, one of those days.

It started off well enough, snooze button and all. Coffee was great, but not really a leisurely affair. Hubby was excited to check things out on our new (to us) truck (More about that later.) and I was excited about doing a little exploring toward Mt. Baker. I figured we’d find a place to take a nice long hike seeing as it was a rest day from P90 for me. 🙂

Quick shower done, play clothes on, our Shakeology ready almost ready to take with us… and this happened.

I don't say "M*@* F*@*" very often ... What? Stop laughing! Okay, okay. But today I said it LOUD and with conviction this morning! Yeah, this happened. Ooops, that's gonna stain. Oh well, blueberries happen. And hey, it gave me a good excuse to try on my Society of Beer Travelers shirt that was too tight before Shakeology! Mmmm ... speaking of beer ... I just might be swapping out my yellows today.

Uggg… I’ll admit it. Part of me wanted to climb back under the covers with my laptop and a cup pot of coffee. But I took my own advice of “Suck it up butter cup!” used about a roll of paper towels and a half of bottle of windex but got the job done. I’m glad I didn’t stick my head back under the covers because this was my reward.

Even with the overcast and sprinkles (that we’ve come to love here in the Pacific Northwest 😉 ) it was a beautiful day.

We didn’t get in the hike I was hoping for, but we did get to check out a raging waterfall. Nooksack Falls is located off WA State Highway 542. I didn’t realize it at the time, but the falls here were featured in the movie The Dear Hunter. Cool bit of trivia. 🙂

I think I was shivering a bit here.

The Nooksack River making its way to flow over the 88 foot drop …

Pooling up just a bit before the plunge …

Like a river that don’t know where it’s flowin’ …

It took a left turn and it just kept going. 😉 Are you humming along to Bruce Springsteen now? You’re welcome. 🙂

Anyway, we ended up making an early day of our exploration because we had shopping and errands to run. But we had fun!

Oh yeah, before I forget. Here’s a quick pic of the newest member of the Gibberish Clan! We haven’t named him yet but hope to soon. We still have Lil Ms. White with us. There’s just way too much sentimental value there to put her out to pasture just yet and I love having her to myself. Well, I should rephrase that. I will love having her to myself once we get the registration processed through South Dakota. Our friends at America’s Mailbox are handling it for us so I’m sure it will all go smoothly. 🙂

Now, back to names for the new guy … does anything come to mind? The only thing we know for sure is that is has to be a rough and rowdy boy’s name. Because as you can see, he’s pretty bad ass looking. Right??

He’s almost as tall as our H.O.W. and has really big “hips”. I don’t think a female persona would be too happy with us talking about her big hips all the time. LoL So a guy’s name it will be.

That’s all for now. As always, thanks for stopping by.

Don’t forget to send me a name idea if you have one! 🙂

~Cheers~
