The Upper Office

I have a lot of favorite places.
This is one.
Estes Park.
Beit Shalom.

The beauty of the mountains.
Altitude brings us closer to the heavens.

Loved ones sharing the space.

Recording the moment.
The Loft Office.
The Upper Office at our dear friends' house.

The serenity and completeness of Beit Shalom
and yet
The world at my fingertips via the globe and the Internet
and it feels
so much like home.

Bonnie put up a great post about Mah Jongg over at Simple Beauty. Her daughter Mah-Jongged with the hand below, which is very unusual: four Kongs, with two hidden Kongs, not to mention no Winds or Dragons.

For more about Mah-Jongg, check out my previous post here.

Atomic Ale Brewpub and Eatery

If you ever find yourself in Richland, Washington, in the Tri-Cities area, check out the Atomic Ale Brewpub and Eatery.

They make some of the best pizza I've ever tasted, and the brew isn't bad either.

My favorite was the Cordon Blue: blue cheese sauce, Mozzarella, Swiss cheese, chicken, canadian bacon, mushrooms and scallions topped with blue cheese crumbles.

The potato soup was delicious, too.
