a brief hiatus from travel log...

me in my herb garden years ago (before hair turned white)

Unfortunately yesterday (Sunday) I awoke feeling a bit 'off' (stomach queasy and headachy). Spent most of the day either sleeping or reading and eating crackers and coke. This morning seems 'a little' better... but not quite back.

Thought I'd use this time to post a few non-travel related pics I've taken recently. Our backyard is green again... finally... and I caught this picture of a squirrel in the bird feeder this weekend.


Julie in her hidey-hole...

and my cousin's cat, Kuchi, helping my  friend with her knitting.

and this last one is me the last day of the cruise trying to figure out the attraction of putting in money and pushing a button...

I must be missing something... because I still don't get it.


  1. Cats always know how to help with knitting projects, don't they? Nice pictures. I don't get the whole gambling thing, either. I guess I'm lucky that way. :-)

  2. LOL @ the last photo, of you on board the ship at the casino. My mom and her hubby go to the casino in their city a couple of times a week (he'd be there every day if he could), and I don't get it at all. I hope you didn't lose any $. :-)

    BTW, Kuchi's a great help with the knitting!

  3. I am glad that I am not the only one who doesn't get that thing about saying good-bye to one's money.
    Cats are so helpful, aren't they?

  4. Julie is a cutie and what is it with kitty's and string? :) As for the slot machines...I do not get it either. LOL

  5. Well, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who isn't into casinos. But from the looks of them (crowded and a lot of gray hair), there are quite a few people who enjoy them.

    And yes, cats love it when you work with yarn. I think it drives them crazy to see the needles click and the yarn move. Tux constantly grabs my needle and Julie likes to bite the yarn. Sounds gross, but few things I make don't have 'cat spit' on them.


Thanks for reading and commenting! It makes my day...
