My Sweet Escape... The Amazing Journey of Ara & Spirit

This is one of my Absolute Favorite Blog Sites and Truly a Sweet Escape for me. Ara & Spirit are on an Amazing Journey, living on the road and sharing their sights & stories through their Blog.... /

Ara's gallery quality photography is simply breath taking and he always includes narratives or history tidbits along with the beautiful pics. His faithful companion and friend, Spirit, is always by his side.

Check out The Oasis of my Soul and while you're sure to Throw the Dog a Bone....Check out their Art Cards, T Shirts and Mouse Pads.... I recently got my Spirited Mouse Pad in the mail. It puts a Smile on my face when I'm working away on my puter!

Tag! I'm It! :)

OK...I have been tagged by the Lovely & Talented Jamie of "Peach Street Primitives" to tell 5 things about myself...Oh dear...I'm just not that interesting! LOL! goes...

#1 I am a Hopeless Hoarder. I work best in my messy workplace. When I tidy things up, I can't ever find a thing I am looking for! Yes, there is a method to my madness! LOL!

#2 I am a Tomboy. I can't walk in heels. I feel stupid in a dress. I wear motorcycle boots or flip flops year round & always, always Jeans. Put me outside cutting grass or dragging brush & I'm a Happy Gal!

#3 I am Very Shy. I like working at home. I have lot's of friends & make friends easily, but I am most comfortable & at ease working from home, with my dogs, who seem to understand (or maybe the word is tolerate?) my quirks best.

#4 I am a Cancer Survivor... 9 years now!

#5 I hope someday to take a motorcycle trip to the Grand Canyon & other sites I have read about on Ara & Spirit's Blog. I think that would be a sight to see & extra fun on a bike. I would love to meet up with my TDIPT Sisters & Friends I have met online, along the way!

Say Cheeeeeeze....

We stopped to visit the kids after my Birthday a couple of weeks ago. My Hubs had gotten me a new camera & I was showing it to my DIL, hoping for some pointers on how to use it. I had to laugh, because Grand-dog Apollo was sitting beside me on the couch & Reece was across the room playing. When the camera came out of the case it was like a light went off....A "Cheeeeze" Light! LOL! Reece came running with a Huge Grin for the camera... and Apollo immediately "Struck a Pose" on the arm of the couch...LOL! Can you say....H-A-M-S?

More Pics from the Easter Egg Hunt...

Oh Boy! Chocolate Bunnies.... and Cheeeeeeeeeze....

The Police Dept hosted an Easter Egg Hunt at an area Park for the kiddies. It was a Beautiful Day & there were tons of families out enjoying the fun! Here are our Cute Grandsons... Wyatt on the left & Reece on the right.
