My Portland friends invited me to stay around for a few days, and I was thrilled to take them up on the offer. While they were working, I made some grand plans to visit the rose garden there, and also bury myself for a while at Powell's bookstore.
Turns out to do both in one day was a tad bit ambitious on my part.

After spending an hour or two wandering the bookstore, I headed down the street to Kenny & Zuke's, home of a to-die-for Reuben sandwich. Once I'd finished stuffing my face, I went back to my friend's house for a quiet afternoon with a good book by a new (to me) author.
Finally getting the hang of this stop, breathe, relax thing!
