Shhhh! Don’t Tell Anybody. . .

That we are home from our trip to Eastern Oregon. You won't tell anyone, will you? We arrived home last evening and have spent most of the day:

* Moving things from our little cabin-on-wheels back into our home,
* Washing our car that seemed to bring home half the dirt in Eastern Oregon,
* Taking the car to the mechanic to check on an engine light that required attention,
* Dealing with a week’s worth of mail,
*Troubleshooting a problem with my dear little mother’s car,
* Catching up on emails and voicemails,
* Reminiscing in between times about the wonderful week we had away together,
* And wishing we were still there!

We don't want everyone close to home to know we're here because it seems our list is long enough and we are really still on vacation. Only fun things, please, for the rest of the weekend. Fun? We're hoping for a nice dry day tomorrow so we can do some serious catch-up in our yard and garden. Oh. . .the sun just came out!

I have about a million photos to edit and things to tell you and I can’t wait to share it all. Until I have a chance to get my act together, here’s a sneak peek at one of the many fantastic, breath-taking places we spent time over the past week. This was just one of many places that totally amazed us.

Clarno Palisades - JD Fossil Beds

This photo isn't mine and it doesn’t do the Clarno Palisades in the John Day Fossil Beds justice; hopefully, you will get a better idea when I share some of my photos taken from a distance and while hiking along the trail below the formations! Everything was green this time of year - and there were wildflowers everywhere!

Joey wants to be sure you know that he was a very good boy and that he walked every step we took on the trails and paths – but he’s glad to be home again. He misses the two big dogs he met and played with at the RV Park, but he's really glad to be out of that silly car!


  1. It sounds like a wonderful time, but it is always so good tobe home in your cozy, familiar surroundings isn't it?

  2. So thankful your time away was restful and that Joey was a good little boy (as if there was a concern otherwise). :o)

    Beautiful country. I've never been out that way and now I want to go.

    Welcome home. Step softly through your weekend and be blessed.


  3. You know my lips are sealed! :) Glad you had a great trip but reality sure does hit you in the face when you walk back into your door, doesn't it? Good reality though!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. Welcome Home! Enjoy the sunshine today. Look forward to hearing about your vacation. Aren't vacations the very best? I sat on my front porch this morning with my tea and the newspaper, just delightful. I hope you are outdoors too.

  5. I'm so glad you had a good time! But I missed you here in the blogospere! We are so over our heads with this house project and moving Mama to assisted living, but when things settle down we have a coffee date right?

  6. Your blog is lovely! I have never been to Oregon but would love to visit there! Your pictures are georgeous. Stop by and visit a Texas gal at (my pic would not seem to work here). Keep writing for Him!

  7. It sounds like you had a wonderful time! I am looking forward to hearing more about your trip.

  8. lol, I'll bet he really is glad to get our of the car. I'm glad you are having such a wonderful vacation.


I am grateful that you stopped by to visit me. Your kind and gracious comments are appreciated and treasured.
