Home Sweet Home

Back from a wonderful vacation in Morro Bay, and as Pamkitty calls it vacation in the can!!! Some can.......Ok, have to admit that isn't our can, that belongs to our friends Jack and Yolanda, that was our dinning car!! Here's our it ever so humble, but we love it!!!

One thing I realized on this vacation I am not a very good blogographer!!! Guess I am just too busy looking and doing. Something I need to get better at. At the end of the month we are going to Washington DC and I definitely need to step up my picture taking! So here's a few photos .

One of our favorite hiking spots is Montano deOro close by to Morro Bay. There's John looking for some sea creatures!

While there aren't any photos I'll give you a brief recap of some of the highlights! Hamburgers, hiking, tacos, gabbing, smores, golfing, drinking beer at the local pub and watching UCLA loose, steak and chicken, sitting by the fire, shopping, clam chowder, playing Mexican Train, and lots and lots of RELAXING :-)!!!! I almost forgot to mention Hannah and Shelby (not very good of Hannah), the sweetest dogs ever and boy can those girls hike! They are standing by their can waiting for mom Netty!

I did get a little sewing all 48 of the nine patches together for my Prairie Paisley, love, love these fabrics! There is quite a lot of piecing to this quilt but I know I really am going to like it when it's done.

On our drive home from Morro Bay we met out girl halfway for lunch. She is heading out early tomorrow morning on a boat for a 2 week stay on the Channel Islands. She will be working on a research project for foxes that live on the Island, with other zoo keepers from around the United States. We couldn't have planned our coming home and her leaving to work out so well, we were lucky!!!

Enough blabbing for me. The rest of the laundry is calling me and tomorrow it's back to Temptation Island, aka work :-)!! Happy first week of April to all you bloggers. See you later alligators!

I love the pictures of the beach. I grew up on the Pacific, and this is the first time we've lived out of driving distance from the ocean. I miss it terribly. Love your camping shots, too. The pups are adorable. Nice "can"! We pick our can up this weekend from storage, hopefully we'll get to use it this year. Glad you go to see your chick. Her trip to the Islands sounds fun. :)

Love the photos. And of course love that you call it the can. You have a good sized can, we had a tiny little can growing up, but I have many happy memories camping in Morro Bay as a kid.

I'm glad you had such a fun trip. I just learned how to play Mexican Train in fun! I love Prairie Paisley, can't wait to see your quilt!

My Prairie Paisley U kit is sitting on my cutting table. That is the most gorgeous fabric! I keep saying that, but it's true!

I love Morro Bay! It looks like you had a wonderful vacation in your can!

Thanks for the link to the "not for sissies" badge! However, I may have to modify it because my nickname is Scooter Sissy!!! LOL
