Beauty in the World

Posted: Wednesday, November 28th, 2007 @ 8:26 am in Maiden's World, World of Letterboxing | No Comments »

Yesterday was a horrid day. I woke with a migraine – I have no idea what brought it on. We ate out the night before at Texas Road House and I really didn’t eat anything that I haven’t eaten before. I had no other symptoms of MSG ingestion, so I don’t think that was the […]

Questionaire II

This is a little different than the ones that usually come around. Place an X by all the things you’ve done, or remove the X from the ones you have not, and send it to your friends (including me). This is in your entire life! PART I. () Smoked a cigarette () Drank so much […]

Happy Thanksgiving 2007

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Today is a day to give thanks for the blessings God has bestowed on us – for friends, for family, for love, for food, for shelter – for all that He has given us. “Oh Give Thanks unto the Lord for he is good; for his mercy endureth forever” -1 Chronicles 16:34. […]

Quiet time

Today has been a really quiet time. I slept for about 8 hours last night and have just been chilling out today. I need to change the bed and do some laundry and make buns for hamburgers for dinner. I watched Ocean’s Twelve this morning while I started tying the quilt comforter for our bed. […]

November Morning

I’ve been having an orgy of letterboxing!! LOL! I seem to really want to get out there and find these boxes – maybe I’m trying to get them all found before the winter weather sets in – or just trying to get caught up for all the ones I should have found during the summer […]

Postscript

Thought I would add a post script to our trip. Mom and I arrived safely in California on Tuesday – November 6th. Crossing the Mohave Desert was not particularly pleasant, but it was definitely an experience. Another dubious experience was getting stopped by the Utah Highway Patrol as a suspected Drug Runner. Stopped me on […]

Day 21

Well, we didn’t make it to the Grand Canyon today. Mom had a bad asthma attack over night and she was panicking so I had to get her down to a lower elevation. The Grand Canyon Railroad was wonderful – they cancelled all the rest of the reservations and refunded all the money. We drove […]

Day 20

Today started off on the wrong foot when we had really noisy people on the floor above us. It started about midnight and went on until 3 AM when mom finally called the front desk. It stopped for about 2 hours and then started again about 5:15. Needless to say neither one of us got […]

Day 19

Today we drove from Shamrock, TX to Albuquerque, NM. It was a fairly quiet drive – I did go find a letterbox and we ended up in a little tiny Texas town called Vega – along old historic Route 66. I always thought Texas especially northern Texas was more rolling – but it is really […]

Day 18

We left Mesquite, TX at about 6:45 this morning and drove through the Dallas/Fort Worth nightmare. I would never ever want to live around Dallas. It was over 50 miles across the urban sprawl. We passed field after field of Cotton today – I didn’t realize they grew so much cotton in Texas. We saw […]
