The Hunt for the Blue Tacoma
Published on Thursday, November 19, 2015 by I have been enjoying a life with no car payments while driving my mother’s old minivan. Although I knew the 2002 Sienna wouldn’t last long, I assumed I had plenty of time to find my dream vehicle. For months I passed the word around to any car lot that would listen. “I want a used DARK blue, four door, four wheel drive Tacoma.” Occasionally I would get a call...
Power Parachute in the Outer Banks
Published on Friday, September 11, 2015 by What is it?  A power parachute. Who has one?  This guy. Who wants one?  Me.  Along with instant biodegradable water balloons.  How fun would THAT be!?...
Confucius Say…
Published on Thursday, August 27, 2015 by Have you ever gotten a fortune cookie that is so dead on it SCARES you? Look at the fortune cookie we got earlier this week. Now look a little closer. I’ll turn the photo upside down to help. Do you see it yet? The day after I took this photo I woke up to a horrible smell in my bedroom. I stumbled out of bed, only to slip on…. Poo. The universe was warni...
Dover Comic Con 2015
Published on Thursday, August 13, 2015 by Cosplay:  Halloween for both kids and adults but without the candy. A few weeks ago my daughter came running to me exclaiming, “Mom! I have the best idea! Cici and I found a comic con in between where we live and we want to meet there!” First of all, the distance was five hours for me, two hours for the friend. And it would involve me taking a vacation day and ...
Katherine Got Ink!
Published on Thursday, August 6, 2015 by If I had gotten a tattoo thirty years ago I know I would hate it today. I’m not the same person I was that long ago. But this year I turn 50, which means it is time to check off some things on the bucket list. The way I figure, if I get a tattoo now I don’t have that much longer to live with it… am I right? For months I planned. Agonized. Researched tattoo arti...
Be Yourself!
Published on Thursday, July 23, 2015 by WHO was the coolest guy on the beach last weekend? THIS GUY! If you have ever read "Harpo Speaks," you may remember two rules Harpo had for his children: "If you have an impulse to do something that you’re not sure is right, go ahead and do it. Take a chance. Chances are, if you don’t you’ll regret it – unless you break the rules about mealtime and bedtim...
What Have You Seen On Google Maps?
Published on Thursday, June 11, 2015 by I recently listened to an audio book called, "Trust Your Eyes" in which a man sees what appears to be a snapshot of a murder on something similar to Google's Street View.  I have seen posts on Facebook pointing out things Google has captured, but have never found something on my own. Until now. Last week I was searching for a building on Granby Street in Norfolk Vi...
San Francisco’s China Town
Published on Thursday, May 21, 2015 by My daughter’s and my favorite place in San Francisco HAND’S DOWN was China Town. Walking through those streets was like being transported to a different country. She and I drank in the sights, the smells, the foods, the music and the language. We were in heaven sharing such an adventure! A "must see" in San Francisco's China Town is the Fortune Cookie Factory.  ...
Wooooooooooo!  Wooooooooooo!
Published on Sunday, May 10, 2015 by Whether we have been gone for an hour or a day, my daughter and I are always greeted as if we’ve been gone a year. Coming home never gets old! The camera was vertical rather than horizontal and I apologize for that.  But when you are attempting to get in a door with this going on, "it happens!" ...
Field of Flowers
Published on Sunday, April 26, 2015 by Today we learned that sometimes you just have to pull over, sneak in to a farmer’s field and take pictures. "What if we get stopped by State Patrol?"  "What if the farmer sees us?"  "My hair is all frizzy from the rain and wind!" "I'm not dressed in anything pretty."  "What if there are ticks?"  "It will be hard to turn on that tiny di...
Pelicans, Seals and Sausalito
Published on Sunday, April 19, 2015 by Our first drive around San Francisco took us through the Castro District, down to the Golden Gate Bridge and in to Sausalito. One of the things I wanted to see on our trip was a seal swimming in the wild. I was also hoping to see a naked person in the Castro District. I saw the seal but not the skin. You can’t have it all! We parked close to the Golden Gate Bridge ...
California Dreamin’
Published on Sunday, April 12, 2015 by California dreaming is all my daughter has been doing since her best friend moved there more than three years ago. For those three years I have promised her that someday, somehow I would get her across country to see her best friend again. With my lack of blog posts over the last two weeks, you may have already figured it out. Last Saturday my daughter and I boarded ...
