Hello Bloglandia! It's been forever since I've shared any travel tales. And that would be because I haven't traveled. Anywhere. For two years. Stupid pandemic. At least my carbon footprint is looking nice and tiny. But Mr Husband and I have been itching for a little getaway and we figured our anniversary would be a … Continue reading I Think I Need One of These
Finn Frolics in the Floral Finale
Hello Bloglandia! So, I'm grudgingly having to accept that we are knee-deep in autumn here in Portland.

April Showers Bring…Monsters?
Hello Bloglandia! Spring is going like gangbusters here in Portland. After a cold and blah March, April has been strutting her stuff with clear skies and temperatures in the high 60s to low 70s (that's around 20-22 for you Celsius folks). With weather like that it's time to get out in the garden (since I … Continue reading April Showers Bring…Monsters?
A Brand New Library to Drool Over
To say I'm a book addict would be like saying Keith Richards has dabbled a few times in drugs and alcohol....a bit of an understatement.
