Travels . . .

It's amazing how much time I waste spend on the Internet.  I wonder if any other generation has had so much opportunity to learn, travel, read, covet, shop, date . . . should I go on?

Today I traveled to Ethiopia with my friend, Heather.  She recently returned from Ethiopia, where she took beautiful pictures of the people and the places she enjoyed.  I loved this picture--so adorable.

I rattled around in the Farmgirl world.  I love what they're doing . . . but I'm still on the fence.  I want, want, want to get involved.  But will I have time for anything else?  Just this part of it, alone, will keep me busy too many hours of the day.

I journeyed over to Christ Church Plano to look at the Roof Dog Run page.  If you live in or around the Dallas area and have never run (or walked) in the Roof Dog Run, you really should give it a try.  They have a lot of fun, and your entry is going to a great cause--The Casa Hogares orphanage at Arequipa, Peru--one of two orphanages supported by Christ Church.  The run is being held on September 9th this year--but it's not too late to enter.  Below is a video from last year's run.  Hope to see you there this year.

I then traveled to The Dizzy Sheep.  I take a gander at their daily special every day.  Never know when they'll have something I just HAVE to have.

Nope, didn't find anything today that I had to have.  Maybe another day.

I went to Etsy to look around.  Love, love, love that place.   I can always find something I love.  And today was no exception.  I found two fantastic things that I think will end up in my house.  The first are felted spotted slippers that are just to die for!!

Aren't these just darling?  They're sold by Onstail from Lithuania.  Check out her store--really darling stuff!

And my second must have are these cute, cute dresses:

 . . . and just about everything else that NewvExtrave has in her Etsy shop.  Totally the kind of dresses I like to wear!! 

So . . . while I'm traveling on the Internet, my sweet husband is traveling home.  I suspect he'll be here tomorrow (earlier than I anticipated).  I can hardly wait.  I'm making his favorite dinner tomorrow night and I plan to scratch his back and put him to bed in his own bed!!!  He'll think he's died and gone to heaven.  xoxo

But for now, good night from me.  I still have a craft room to finish picking up and laundry to fold before I can go to bed.  Later . . .


  1. Love the dresses and slippers!! I know what you mean about wandering around the web. It's amazing how often I'll just go to look up something and then an hour later, I'm still wandering around and soaking up all the info. It's wonderful! And besides, if it wasn't for the net, I wouldn't have met you!!

  2. Mary,
    Thanks for taking me on a tour of your day...I loved it!!
    and those slippers are adorable and her site is too!!


  3. Oooooo, I like those slippers too and especially the dresses!
