Last weekend, I was with friends on our annual girls’ getaway which occasionally looked like Tuscany.

This picture was taken by KCINNOTX. I'm using it because she said I could -- and because it is prettier than the one I took.

Before heading out to wine country, my BFF was our family chef who willingly cooked up a dish of Chicken Provençal, from Idiot’s Kitchen. My family members were the happy, satisfied guinea pigs. Claudia‘s new-to-me recipe was a winner!

Winner, winner, chicken dinner...

Winner, winner, chicken dinner…


From Europe to Central America in today’s virtual travel experience…

From Guatemala, with love

Other friends of mine are working to improve the lives of the indigenous people of Guatemala. While home for a visit, Debbie brought me a thumb drive of some pictures she wanted made into cards. These are 4 of the 6 different cards made (with a total of 55 cards in all) for the order on its way to Guatemala.

And a few weeks ago, while delivering event flyers to local businesses, I took a break and paused to enjoy a Mexican Mocha at a coffee shop.

How have you traveled lately?  We can’t always physically go somewhere else, but there are other senses — sight, taste, and even your imagination — that can do the traveling. 

Where would you like to go, if time, money, or circumstance wasn’t holding you back?

  1. That chicken was definitely yummy. Your kids snarfed it right down, too! Good timing – I needed an idea for what to make for dinner tonight.

  2. First I want to travel to Claudia from Idiot’s Kitchen’s blog to get that chicken recipe. It looks great!

    The travel photos here are inspiring in many different ways. I just got back from a visit to the Old Folks’ Home, a trip which has its challenges. The weather was gorgeous for the whole time, and I found myself thinking, Pennsylvania is beautiful today!

    Where would I like to go? I would like to take my kids to Arches National Park, for starters. I would like to go to all those interesting places out in the western US. Italy, France, Ireland, Israel. None of that seems likely to happen, but I still dream about it happening. In June I am going to Canada to visit my aged uncle, aunt, and my cousins, whom I haven’t seen in many years.
