8 Things to do at the Texas Renaissance Festival

In the small town of Todd Mission, Texas approximately 50 miles northwest of Houston is the largest renaissance festival in this country. The Texas Renaissance Festival is 55 acres of fun, fantasy and merriment.

Travel Opportunities abound!

Earlier this summer I had took the opportunity to become involved in something that has been around since people have owned homes, had animals to care for and have traveled. In short, housesitting. In the past it has been neighbors, friends or family that would take care of your home and furry family members while you were on vacation or an extended leave. Well, now there is a new movement that is rocking the travel world, making it more convenient to go on vacations and holiday in addition to taking that once in a lifetime job opportunity across the world with

What did you do this weekend?

Labor Day, which is the first Monday in September, is a national holiday to honor the contributions that American workers have made to our country as a whole and within the communities that they live in and to celebrate the national labor movement of the 1880’s. Labor Day is typically celebrated today with friends and families gathering together in parks or backyards firing up the BBQ’s filling the air with the wonderful mouth-watering aroma of chicken, steaks, hot dogs being grilled to perfection slathered in sweet honey bourbon bbq sauces touched with smoke from charcoal briquets and tables filled with

A fun anniversary gift!

A fun anniversary gift!

I love old books. I have said that before, but they are just so cool! Sometimes it is difficult to read an old book in the romance, fiction or literature genres just because of all the “thees” and “thys” and other formal old English verbiage they used then. I have found myself having to look up some long forgotten words that have accumulated dust whilst being stowed on the proverbial bookcase of antiquities and oddities of long long ago. For our anniversary my husband found a fun and unique book for me during our travels to the UK this summer

Happy National Toilet Paper Day

Happy National Toilet Paper Day

Toilet Paper What is August 26th? Among many things, it is national toilet paper day. I know, seriously, right! Who thought of this?? Maybe the makers of Charmin? Hats off (or should I say, pants down) to those little rolls of paper that we all hold dear in that particular time of need. Heaven forbid a simple daily duty becomes a tricky situation. Imagine, you are in a public restroom. You reach for the toilet paper only to realize that the precious roll is bare! There is nothing left but the roll of cardboard and a tiny little scrap of TP blowing in the wind. Taunting you,

Treasure Hunting

I love to hunt for treasure, all kinds of treasure -big and small, new and old. It is the hunt for that singularly unique item to fill the vacant spot on the wall, or that

Driving in England for the first time

The first time that we went to England we were so excited to be going to a different country! It was so thrilling to think of all the new experiences and people that we would meet! The new culinary adventures that we would expose our taste buds to. The massive amounts of history that we would see. For history lovers who grew up in a state in America where 50 years is considered “old”, going to a place that has centuries of history made us almost giddy! We made our travel list, what to pack, what not to pack, found
