Burning question needs to be addressed….

Question of the day… Are you ready for School to start?

I know I am!

We’ve had two young girls bouncing around the house with loads of energy and a high propensity to be in all sorts of business.  We’ve participated in swim lessons. Sold treasures at our Community Garage Sale. Packed (and unpacked) the car for Art Shows. Made our way to the Wild Animal Game Farm in Sequim, WA to feed bread to the deer, llamas, and bears.  Took multiple swings of the tennis rackets on several local tennis courts.  Broke in the new Bicycles.  As well as visited the library for “Splat the Cat” books!  Our latest adventure together was school clothes shopping.   Am surprised our youngest did not wear her favorite outfit to bed last night 🙂

Am not ready to completely dismiss Summer for Fall, but am willing to present a “Welcome” sale for those of you who need a treat!!

Letting the internet do it’s job!

First of all Happy June 1st everyone!! Can you believe we have crossed the 6th month mark today? We’ve seen a lot of changes this year. Artist friends of mine have been busy creating some fantastic pieces. Small businesses are coming to life again. And the internet is buzzing with changes in the social media area, as well as retail sites.

Anyone loving Pintrest as much as I do?? I really enjoy how visual that site is. It’s simple, straight forward, and it works form someone like me who wants to “pin in & leave it”.


Speaking of visual, here’s my newest images on iStock — you may recognize the Bear from the Olympic Game Farm! I’m letting the internet work for me & my photography these days:





Now your turn:

I’d love to hear about your new adventures. Drop a comment and include some links to your internet site &/or Social Media posts.



Olympic Game Farm

Lions and Tigers and Bears… feed them bread? OK! Remember, wheat bread only. Yes, you can feed most of the animals from your car with wheat bread that you bring or buy from the ticket booth on the way into the Game Farm.

What a crazy day to celebrate Memorial Day. My husband, brother & I packed up the car and took the ferry over to the Olympic Peninsula early this morning. The Olympic Game Farm hosts animals that are ‘retired’ from the movies… and some odd others like praire dogs, pea cocks & hens, rabbits, llamas. Quite a sundry of animals. One drives around a graveled road to see the various animals at a very slow pace – 10mph or slower. You can have the windows open, but no tailgates or sunroofs. I was all for feeding the deer and Zebra. Could hang tight with throwing bread to the bears, but NO WAY did I want to entertain a slobbing Yak or Buffalo in thru the window breathing on us. (See pics below)










On a more serious note:

As a child of a military man, I am very thankful for those who have served and are still serving this great nation of ours. It takes courage and discipline to do their jobs. It’s not a 9 to 5 job. There’s plenty of unpaid overtime and many life-changing events like getting stationed or deployed over-seas, prolonged time away from families, death of co-workers, and generally participating in activities that none of us will ever have to experience… Thank you, thank you, thank you. My prayers are for you and for your families. Stay safe and persevere. May your minds be steadied & hearts stay protected. Amen!

With June around the corner, let’s journey into Summer together, shall we? Keep creating!
