I am a woman searching for my inner goddess and using fabrics, words and photography as my road map. I find great comfort and order in my creative efforts and hope that in sharing them you find a peace also. Welcome and Be Blessed!

42.5 hours-whew

So it only took us 42.5 hours to get home from Sandpoint Idaho to Portersville, PA. We did this trip with only gas, food and potty breaks. No stopping for a slumber party in some godforsaken neon-flashing motel along the way. Of course that meant no showers and well lets just say perhaps that is why people were a bit standoffish near the end of our trip- me I usually attribute this to Easterners being less friendly but…. We were a bit smelly.

We opted not to take the new route through North Dakota since it would be dark already but we did try a different road I 35, which swung down through Iowa and helped us miss all but one toll road going around Chicago. We fight it added about 70 miles to the trip but saved us about 40 dollars in tolls and the aggravation of having windows that don’t roll down.

When my brain wakes up I will attempt some better travel stories but for now just know that we are home and Vern is already back to work warshing coal as they say in these here parts. Yeah for warshing coal- that pays for trips and adventures.
We figured that we have hit 17 states and 2 foreign countries in less then a month- not bad. Time to go buy food- yeah food.

Red Queen's Mission Statement

I believe that things can always be cured with a hug and a cup of tea, fixed with either a needle and thread, duct tape, WD40 or coke, and that prayer works every time. I take in strays whether in animal or childlike form. I have been mother to many for a time and this is my way of keeping up with some of those straying children that I miss. I appreciate shock value and use it often to remind people that the world is round and colorful and we are not all living in square brown cardboard boxes with little holes cut in for windows. Look for the warm fuzzies- God delivers them up fresh every day just to say- I think you are pretty darned special- so special that I have your picture up on my fridge for life and I am sending you a hug to remind you that you matter to me.
