Don't wait another day!

Day 2 – House Sitting in Washington

Kudu was a great sleep buddy.  He loves to sleep under the covers with you!  He startled me yesterday when I sat on the couch with a little blanket and he jumped up and started digging to get under the blanket with me.  He is very warming and adorable.  The guest room seems warmer so […]

Day 3 Housesitting

Chickens are up early…they have simple needs but must be tended and checked each day.  I understand the phrase “Up with the Chickens” much more now. Between Kudu and the chickens…and Van starting the market at 6:30 am…there’s no sleeping in.  Kudu does a dance when he’s ready to eat and he’s used to getting […]

Day 1 – Let the sitting begin!

Today has been filled with learning all we could about chicken care, pug care and home care.  We are armed with knowledge and resources.  We enjoyed a breakfast of fresh eggs, scrambled with bacon and served with toast and coffee cake.  My grandparents raised chickens for their whole lives and it was always a treat […]

Foodies! Love the tours in Palm Desert!

Palm Desert is a relatively “new” town.  It looks to me that it’s the “new” Palm Springs.  This whole area seems to run together geographically.  The boundaries are not clear as a tourist, but the cities are all administered differently.  There is never charged parking in Palm Desert!  Tourists can appreciate that.  There’s a lot […]

Aerial Tram

No trip to Palm Springs would be considered complete without a trip up the Aerial Tram.  From the top of the world you can see for miles around and on a clear day see three states from the top!  It’s pretty incredible and an experience you should not miss.  There are many ways to approach […]

Temecula, CA – Ever heard of it?

Ever heard of Temecula?  Been there?  Do you know about this hidden gem in southern California? Just a short distance from Palm Springs, San Diego, Los Angeles and Orange County is theTemecula Valley Wine Country. With more than 30 wineries currently, this wine country offers boutique and full service wine resorts that are friendly, relaxed […]

Zoo Day

A living desert…what does that mean?  What is this place all about? Our day started with a trip to the Living Desert Zoo where there were a variety of habitat created for many different animals.  We explored Africa, North America, and various other parts of the world.  Most of the animals were adaptable to the […]

Palm Springs Day 1

Palm Spring, California – You would think that by now I would have been her – but alas this is my first trip.  The beauty of the area is stunning!  The mountains have such interesting shapes and textures.  Painting them would be challenging and fun.  That would be something to return here to pursue for […]

Maui Closing Thoughts

As the trip winds down, we spent our final day visiting Ka’anapoli Beach for a short while before packing up and checking out of our room.  It was a relaxing and busy ten days for us.  Touring the entire island and participating in a variety of activities was fun and exciting.  It will be a […]
