Navasota, TX

This year I made a lofty declaration that I didn’t want to go anywhere. No trips. None. I’m a staycatin’ this year. Takin’ a break from the road. The queen took her a little ol’ trip to the Texas Hill Country earlier this year, but other than that, we ain’t been nowhere. Just staying home and staying […]

Road trippin’ Oct 2013

I’m trying to get back in the groove of this. A routine is needed. A blogging routine. Or not. But let’s jump back into it, shall we? Last October we took a big honkin’ trip up over yonder to Yankee land on the east coast. Usually when we drive up that way we go through […]

Fall color and llamas in Rhinebeck, NY

Starting where I left off, back in 2012 – where does the time go? We all know it goes down the drain, clockwise, if you live in the northern hemisphere. Or does it? In October 2012 we took a small-ish (for us) trip to Rhinebeck, NY specifically for the queen to attend the New York State Sheep […]

Oak Park: Frank Lloyd Wright

Before I get to the Frankapalooza Oak Park Tour, I believe I heard the soft thud of suggested knit shop absence. Oh ye of little faith! Thoust should never doubtest a knit shop visit if there is a knit shop in the va-cinity. Lo and behold – It was at this point my camera battery […]

Before I get started on The Great East Coast to Midwest Adventure of Thelma and Louise, we took a day trip to Paige, TX last month to visit one of the queen’s favorite yarn stores, Yarnorama. And an ‘orama’ it is. A veritable cornucopia of all things yarnish – from spinning to knitting to bunnies. […]

I was … delayed

That’s what Gandalf told Frodo when asked why he missed their meeting in Bree. Turns out he had this whole wizard smack down with the ee-vil Saruman, wizard who turned to the dark side. Hair was a flyin’, robes were a kilter but Gandalf’s staff wasn’t as powerful as Saruman’s staff. Saruman had the bigger […]

Our road trips almost always involve hooking up with family or friends or both. This trip we stayed in LA with Good Friend Irene, she of constant motion who has very recently packed up and moved to Denver. Only 18 hours from Houston. Piece of cake, says I. While staying with Irene in LA, we […]

It’s all about ewe

Before we head across the street for yarn let’s take one last gander at the outside of Bill’s Tavern. Cannon Beach’s coastal town quaint factor weighs more than a ton of seersucker pants. Makes me want to jump into a pair of Keds, wrap a sweater over my shoulders and figure out who murdered the […]

We made it past the poo and the dust bowl, skirted San Francisco and headed to Mendocino. Our first visit to this small town on a cliff in 2004 left us wanting to return. In fact, the picture I used on the ‘About LtD‘ page was taken in Mendocino as we waited to watch the […]

Wandering around Taos

The queen wanted to head over to La Lana Wools, a knit shop across the street from the Wool Fest. To get back to the main street, you walk through this portal in a wall that is erected along the street. It’s interesting to see the people walk by, some look to see what’s on […]
