Snoqualmie Falls

Mom’s here and the Olympics began.  Hence the light posting.  Before the games began though (and I’m including the game of Mom and I trying to sew lined bedroom curtains from scratch), we checked out Snoqualmie Falls.  Just outside of Seattle, this waterfall is 268 ft, and is one of the most popular scenic attractions […]

Cheers and Jeers

Cheers… to a wonderfully campy Lifetime movie that I got sucked into tonight: Drew Peterson; Untouchable.  Rob Lowe is fantastically evil as the murdering husband (in real life he’s still awaiting trial for the possible murder of his third wife, and fourth wife who was never found after she disappeared). Jeers… to the horrible events […]

Read It: Before I Go To Sleep

When NavyGuy is away, I get lots of reading done.  When you add traveling and sitting on the beach, I REALLY get a lot of reading done 🙂  One of my favorites from the last month is Before I Go To Sleep by S. J. Watson. From Amazon: Amazon Best Books of the Month, June […]

New Baby Gifts

NavyGuy’s best friend from high school (and his lovely wife) just had their first baby – a little boy.  NavyGuy’s friend is as geek-tastic as NavyGuy, so when I saw the following item on Etsy, I knew it had to be part of our gift to them: It’s a Rebel Pilot onesie.  The Etsy shop […]

Colorado Weekend Continued

We left off with my cousin’s wedding coming together splendidly and everyone having a fabulous time 🙂 Unfortunately, the rest of my weekend in Breckenridge didn’t get any better health-wise.  When I woke up Saturday morning, I had slept with the oxygen on all night long.   I was having to rub special vaseline type […]

Duck Love

This is one of her oldest rattiest toys. You can’t see the spots around the duck’s neck where I’ve attempted to sew it back together with pink thread.  Be glad you can’t smell it.  But it’s one of her favorites, so duckie stays 🙂  (Until I have to bust out the replacement duck that’s hidden […]

Hawaii Port Call Pt. 4

Unfortunately, all good things, must get back on the boat. Before I knew it, this nice beach view was downgraded to that of a grey steel beach: The only good part about taking NavyGuy and Mr. L back to the boat was that I was able to go onboard with NavyGuy and get a quick […]

Hawaii Port Call Pt. 3

Our “plan” for the time NavyGuy was in Hawaii was a complete non-plan.  We had no place specific we wanted to go, nothing in particular we wanted to do, and it was glorious.  NavyGuy was more than happy to simply eat good food (his diet on the boat has been consisting of salads and omelets), […]
