Creating, crafts, gardening, quilting and life on a little ranch.

No, not like the movie, but a fun trip with two daughters, a granddaughter and myself.

We laughed at silly things that probably no one else would laugh at.  We teased each other without getting mad, and we shared one bathroom without yelling at one another.

Every girl needs a trip like this.

We visited Mission Santa Barbara, which was beautiful and full of California history.

The beaches were lovely.  We watched the sunset at Ventura Beach.

In downtown Santa Barbara we tasted a new food, Goa tacos, which were different from what we are familiar with, but were very tasty.

On one afternoon we managed to beat everyone else to the spa at our hotel.


And because we had such a successful trip, we celebrated by treating ourselves to some yummy ice cream treats.

Next year, same time, different place.💗💜💗💜



A couple of years ago I bought myself a coffee mug with the image of Wonder Woman on it.



I think is was our son who asked why I had bought the mug.  My answer came quickly, ” I bought it to remind myself that I no longer am as strong as I used to be.”   Energy, strength, the will to keep on going the whole day, has now diminished.  Nope I am no longer the Wonder Woman I once was.

Now at 69 years of age, I think of myself as a tea cup.  If I’m busy all morning,  I need that nap to power up for later.



I can’t stand our sizzling heat in the summer, the cold all but numbs me.

Even our little shih tzu seems too heavy to lift sometimes.

But don’t get me wrong,  I can still muster up plenty of strength if needed.

Being a tea cup is not a bad thing.♥♥♥♥
