Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
10 simple reason you should start a blog this year:
Happy Wednesday ~
I hope you are well and staying out of the Thanksgiving madness. I'm still traveling/working and I just wanted to share something really quick with you. I'm staying at a holiday house and some of the furnishings impressed me enough to look them up! I was even more impressed when I found out they were affordable! That never happened, especially now.
One of my best finds is about to be my "go to" holiday hostess/unexpected drop-in gifts of this super luxuriously and soft blanket. The picture look meh, but it is really soft and I was glad to see it washed/dried and still looks brand new. It will make a thoughtful and useful gift rather than another knick knack that no one actually wants. It's a great Amazon find right now and I'm buying as gifts especially - at this price.
I will be sharing some of the other cool stuff here in later posts and of course in videos. You do follow me on Youtube, right? If not, run over there now--I'm uploading all kinds of recipes, travel, nature and relaxing videos. Watch them here.
Also run, don't walk over and grab that blanket now before all the pretty ones sell out.

Hey and Happy Sunday!
I've been talking about my adventures in the State Park...
BUT this one takes place in a Cemetery...watch it here:

How are you? I'm so glad you stopped by. I'm up late/early working on new videos and book reviews. I have so many ideas and possible directions for those hours and hours of footage I shot in September. What would you like to see? More nature and less talking or more of vlog type posts? Or something totally different? Let me know below.
Tonight I plan on putting all these new ideas on paper. Do you have periods where you are super creative and other times when you can't think of a single thing to do? I've noticed I'm usually awake (and creating) more around the full moon. It feels like a big blast of creative energy flowing in and I want to take full advantage of this inspiration. So I stay up way too late and write, paint, edit and make lists. I also tend to try new recipes and cook more. I'm not motivated to do admin work or anything overly analytical during these few days each month. Sadly even journaling falls by the wayside unless its project related.
Usually I have more of an issue around finding enough hours in the day to create, vs me looking for inspiration, but lately with us being away from home I haven't felt all that inspired. So I'm going to make another pot of tea and keep at it. It feels so good to be back in the flow!
Have a great weekend and be sure and subscribe to the YouTube channel for all the new adventures~
How are you feeling about 2022? I know it's too soon to tell, but here's to hoping it's a better year.
I just hopped over to Goodreads and saw my yearly book stats. I will share some of them below. I often don't review books on the Goodread site, but write a quick non-spoiler review here or vice versa. If you are wondering about any book on my list, just leave me a comment and I will give you the skinny on it.
I seem to like books in the 300-500 page range, over that and I feel kinda trapped by the book...unless it's really, really good. I did read a small 33 page one this year that ended way too soon.
This year I read about:
I read for knowledge, entertainment, escapism, and to understand other people's outlook on the world. What are your favorite types of books? What makes them the best?
I will be posting more in the coming months as I am working a bit less.
Hopefully, we can meet up here and discuss books, food, and other fun topics!
I hope you are having a fantastic week, but HOW IS IT DECEMBER already? I never put up the Halloween decorations so technically it's still September at my casa. Well, except for the cold weather....
I've been trying to clear all my old book reviews, old travel posts, recipes, and sorting pictures for blog posts this week. (So far I found a few really witty half-finished posts from 2018, LOL!)
Regardless, you can expect a blast of book reviews and other nonsense this month, dear reader. So stay tuned.
Thank you for hanging out...
Hello and welcome to July!
It's going to be a good month, I think. The parks are finally open here, so I went out early today for a run. It was AMAZING to be out and moving again. I have been running/walking around the neighborhood, but its great to be back on the park trails.
The days are longer as we head deeper into Summer and I'm so ready!
It's also warmer now, but we have the air con on and plenty of fruit, so bring on July adventures!
In America July is a month of pool parties, BBQ's and road trips. I have done most of that already in June, but am looking forward to more downtime to visit and catch up with friends. (We still wear masks and social distance, but its great to be able to move around some and not be trapped inside.) - I have a couple of small road trips planned and hopefully time to just explore around here, weather permitting.
Hi Travel Family!
I hope everyone is safe and comfortable as we begin April. The sun is shining and its shaping up to be a gorgeous day here in New Mexico. I know isolation can be difficult, but we will make it through April and beyond.
I have been 'nose to the grindstone', so to speak, working, writing and creating through most of the winter. I'm glad its spring, but it seems March just flew by. We have new projects taking off in April and May, (they do not require me to be 'social' other than posting or tweeting) and for that I am truly thankful.
Work for me hasn't changed all that much. Working from home (or a holiday house) has been my gig for close to 15 years now. (I am as amazed as you are, as I write that!) But traveling has changed greatly...well you know. But it won't always be like this and this gives us time to dream up new adventures and study distant lands we want to explore. Maybe April will be a good month to update your travel bucket list? One of my friends in Scotland shared a nice list of places he wanted to visit and I admit to being impressed...I had never even heard of most of these places! Google here we come!
But seriously, I know it's a rough time right now. But we can get through this. You are not alone. We are all in this together and together we make it through.
