Hiking again today in Mission Viejo . . . "Old" El Toro Road

Rexy and I got going early this Monday morning and went on a hike . . . always good for the soul to get out and be close to nature.  I'm a slow starter, but once I get going, I always feel so much better.  The weather here in California is just beautiful, we are absolutely having a wonderful November. We hiked about 4 miles today . . . always adventurous with Rexy . . . LOL!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town . . . maybe a little bit before Thanksgiving :O)

Well it's that time of the year again . . . seems like we just did this, doesn't it?  Oh well, it's all good.  I've been working on a new Santa already for my collection . . . not the traditional red one but a mustard colored one with some navy blue buffalo check pants, along with some green garland with the word "believe" attached to it.  I still have a little bit to complete, attaching the hat, and three jingle bells for buttons on his coat.  My passion for creating dolls never seems to end  . . . with so many things that have changed in my life the past few years, I hope the passion for creating dolls never ends . . . always a treat to create a doll at this time of the year.  Blessings :O)

Playing With Paper Again . . .

 Rexy and I absolutely love anything connected to nature  . . . We have been working on Rexy's home doing some updating the past six months.  We are really having fun doing it together.  I thought I would create something using the colors we are working with and of course, a little little romantic
too . . . LOL!

Visiting Knotts Berry Farm with Rexy :O)

Rexy called me the other evening and asked if I wanted to go to Knotts Berry Farm.  Knotts Berry Farm is giving free admission for a short time to all veterans and active military.  Being that Rex is a retired veteran,  Rexy and I got in free . . . we had too much fun.  I never realized how much Rexy loves amusement parks.  I haven't been to Knotts Berry Farm in such a long time, so I was so looking forward to our visit.

Enjoying Life With Gratitude!

If they told me two years ago that I would be traveling to so many places for fun on a back of a motorcycle . . . I would have thought  . . . yeah right!  All my life, inside of me, I would hear a little voice, saying "some day" you are going to do that, I was married, with children to raise and put through college, living a normal everyday life, a beautiful life, thinking that little dream was just a thought and it passed me by and I was way to old to get on a motorcycle.  Well never say never, God has your life all planned out, believe me, he knows your desires and your dreams, he truly has fulfilled mine.  ALWAYS STAY IN FAITH!  Since meeting Rexy, who is very adventurous, I have traveled almost 4000 miles by motorcycle.  We just got back from Laughlin, Neveda and had a great time with a couple of friends.  This pic above is in a small town called "Goffs".  Selfies are always fun!


Harley touring bikes are very comfortable, but safety always comes first.  Having the proper gear makes all the difference.  You definitely have to take care when it comes to your skin and hair, lots of protection from the sun and wind.  Helmet hair?  Well that's a whole other story for sure, definitely have to have a sense of humor :O)

 It was an honor to take this pic with our friend Jim, he's 82 years strong, and has been riding motorcycles all his life, he's lived alot of it too,  an amazing individual and still riding.

The past seven months we haven't been able to ride as much, since Rexy had neck surgery to remove a spur growth.  It was nice to get back on the motorcycle again.  Winter riding is up next, definitely will wear layers of clothing for sure.
