Cat Sanctuary

While in Maui, we took the ferry over to Lanai to visit the Lanai Cat Sanctuary. Since we were missing our kitties, this was a great way to get our kitty fix. Before telling you about the cat sanctuary, I wanted to show you a picture out the front of the van on the way.…

Revisiting the Smokies

We just returned last week from revisiting the Smokies. Dave and I traveled there back in 2005 after we first met. The trip was somewhat of a disaster since we really didn’t know each other well and shouldn’t have been spending a whole week together. Anyway, we did survive that trip, and talked for years…

We Love Asheville!

Dave and I took a week off and traveled to Asheville, North Carolina. Usually the garden keeps us here, but Dave worked it out so we could get away. I have to sum up the trip: art, food, and lots of walking. So much fun! We found on Trip Advisor this lovely apartment located in…

Hawaiian fabric shopping

We just recently returned from a wonderful WARM stay in Hawaii. Our visit included three stops on The Big Island: Hilo, Waimea and Kona. If you know me, you know I like bargains and fabric shopping. Two years ago we stayed in Kona and we stopped by this lovely fabric store. Well, a visit to…

Getting Sidetracked

While working on our Australia photo/scrap book, I got a bit sidetracked! But I did get that mission accomplished! Out of our over 3,000 photos, I ended up with slightly less than 300 in the book. On the right page is my summary of our visit to Ayers Rock Resort. On the following page I…
