Hello, and welcome to my blog.   I’ve been blogging off and on since 2006 so who knows what you might find on here.  As with most things in my life, it’s a work in progress, but here’s a few helpful navigation tips to point you on your way.

The best way to read the blog in chronological order is to head over to the BLOG page, but if you only want to read about certain things, I’ve come up with a loosely based system of categories to create some semblance of organization.  They are picture based and on the side bar.

If you want to find out more about me, click on my picture on the sidebar.  You’ll find more than you ever wanted to know about me.

I love to travel [and really, I consider just about anything outside my house-travel] and take pictures while I’m doing it, so if that’s what you are looking for, click on the ‘travel’ photo on the sidebar.  That will take you to a page where I’ve listed all the countries I’ve been too, and the adventures I’ve had in those places. Further click on a country and/or state/province for even more specialized navigation.  [Example:  Interested in traveling the King’s Highway? Click on Canada, then Quebec. See, Easy?]   The ‘photographs’ photo has a link to all the photo essays and such I’ve done on this site.

The ‘Life’ tab is where I put my random thoughts.  It can be about travel, medicine, cats, issues of the day, bullet journaling, school [because I am forever in school] capsule wardrobes…who knows what else.

I also, very rarely, write about food.  Cooking and eating new foods aren’t really life’s enjoyment for me.  I like finger fruits, sandwiches, and soup.  Quick and easy things that are portable and require minimal refrigeration for someone who works 15 hour days.  That’s what I lean towards.  But every so often, I’ll visit a new restaurant, try a new recipe, or something like that

The Hideaway is wherever I’m living.  Sure I want my own space sooner rather than later, but right now, I don’t have it.  So here I’ll put houses I’m considering, plans I like, DIY projects I’m doing, whatever I can do to make my space look less like someone else’s space.

So that’s my blog in a nutshell.  Glad you stopped by.  Visit as often and whenever you can.
