Image
What a nice way to end the year, with an award. Thanks to Storybeader
I enjoy looking at the beautiful handcrafted one of a kind jewelry on her site. Do take a look and let her know I sent ya.

With the award comes a few responsibilities....

Here are the rules for the award acceptance:
(1) Thank the person giving the awards
(2) Copy awards to your blog
(3) Place a link to their blog
(4) Name 7 things people don’t know about you
(5) Nominate 7 bloggers
(6) Place a link to those bloggers
(7) Leave a comment on their blogs letting them know of their awards

Seven things you probably didn't know about me:
1...I used to dream of being a good swimmer when I was young, which is pretty funny cause I can't even float. I've apparently got lead in my bones and not at all buoyant in the water.
2...I like wine (dry white and red). You might know that if you've visited my other blogs. Sandy's Space
3...I knit and crochet, mostly for charity. You might know that too if you've been to m…

Traveling, Dear-DEER? Columbus Ohio

Image
Traveling Dear DEER's? Early Sunday morning before I even had a sip of coffee hubby and I looked out the window and walking up the street single file were these 5 Deers! **click on photo for close up**


Now, it's note worthy to know we do not live in the woods, or near the woods. We live on a very residential street; as I think you can see by the pictures. We live about 1.5 miles from The Scioto River, but between there and here we're talking a main road--4 lanes connecting 2 freeways, lots of cars, lots of people! Thankfully these traveling Deer's were traveling early enough on a Sunday morning they weren't in the middle of rush hour; but still we thought it pretty crazy. Food must be scarce along the river for them to go in search in such a people populated area. And or, they've gotten far too used to people feeding them that they now are going door to door. I fear the latter maybe true which is a dangerous sign for them.

The house and car you see them cl…

When, Why, and Where of Travel--Follow Me

Image
First let me say, I wish I could take credit for this fabulous picture; but I can't it's one of the sample pictures that came loaded on my computer. No doubt you've got one like it on yours. It seemed appropriate though, ever wonder how many places a butterfly has visited? How many things it's seen?

The when, why, and where of travel may not be something a butterfly thinks about you; but you should. Thinking and planning will make all who travel with you enjoy themselves more.

The when of travel maybe dictated to you based on your work load, or when the kids are out of school, but even within those restrictions you need to think about when. Is this window of travel time a high or low season? Meaning are you paying big bucks or getting a deal for travel during an off time. Naturally you can save money if you travel during non peak times, you can save further if you look at what days even to go. Are you staying at a hotel that gives deals on week days or the week e…

Let it Snow, then pack your bags and Go to Argentina

Image
Mystical looking isn't it! Looking down the mountain towards a sleepy village. A ski village about to come to life in The Andes Mountains in western Argentina near the border. Argentina Ski Resorts pepper the landscape between Chile and Argentina. You can count 9 on this map. A 2-3 hour flight from BuenosAires and you're there, 1030 meters above sea level with fresh snow to explore.When you Ski in Argentina you have much to pick from. Snowboarding, cross country, or downhill skiing all are available, as well as rental of the appropriate ski equipment for your outdoor adventure. Hotel accommodations have a wide range of pricing so you can select what fits your budget. Better yet, let the experts tailor make a ski package for you. You tell them when you'd like to travel, what you'd like to spend, what type of accommodations you require and let them deal with all the details. Packages can include air fare, and car rental.

Cerro Cathedral Ski Resort offers some o…

Travel Shopping

Image
If you knew men, you would know I am NOT a shopper. I did not get there fairly typical female gene. I don't go shopping with my girl friends; it's just really not me. There are necessities of life that one must shop for however. So, sitting in the comfort of my computer chair -- clicking my mouse to shop truly calls out to me. ShopWiki is my kind of shopping. I don't have to travel shop to shop, I don't have to fight for parking, and lug heavy parcels once I purchase something. Instead, I let my computer and mouse do the traveling.

ShopWiki let's me shop anytime day or night right from my computer chair. I save time, money, and energy (both mine and the car's) when I shop for any and everything with ShopWiki.

Looking for something with a specific dollar amount, make your search work for you. You can search/shop by occasions such as Mother's Day, Birthday, Valentine's Day; you can shop/search by the person you're buying for such as Dad, Brothe…

For the more active types, try your hand at snowboarding, cross country skiing, or down hill skiing. A perfect winter location for the romantic get away, or the whole family.

In fall the words hotel New Hampshire mean hiking, mountain biking or enjoying the abundance of fall colors from a comfy rocker on the front porch.

This New Hampshire hotel has much to offer everyone in the hot summer months from a lazy day at the pool, to boating, and fishing, playing tennis or playing golf. Whether you're in need of booking a fun family vacation, a romantic get away, a work outing (perhaps a golf one) or a special wedding you'll find a variety of room styles and prices filled with old world charm.

Poolside grill, lounge, and fi…
