Awhile back, I started a series of things I wanted to do after I moved to Virginia. One of the first places I listed was the scenic vistas on a near by highway. You can read my initial post here.
Every time I’d visit Jimmy down here, I’d drive by a couple of “scenic vista” stops on the highway. I was always in a rush to see my husband (and the cats), so I was never took the time to stop, but they remained high on my list of places I wanted to visit. This was for two reasons: 1) I was glad to be living in a place with topography again (no offense, northeast OH), and 2) I was grateful to be living in a place beautiful enough to have vistas.
Unlike my fellow New Englanders, when I was back in Cape Cod, I loved living in a place that attracted so many tourist. Tourists mean better shopping, more restaurants, and plenty of attractions to visit. Scenic Vistas are a good sign that an area might have some tourism, and I’m so happy to be living in a place like that again.
Now that life is starting to normalize, a bit. We finally had the opportunity to go check them out!
Of course, Duffy came along. His life’s mission is to be in as many travel-related selfies as possible.
How beautiful is my new home environment?
The stops were pretty quick…not much to do besides look at the pretty mountains and take photos of Duffy. Still, I was very excited to be able to do something fun on a weekend with Jimmy (and Duffy). I look forward to more adventures very soon!
I adore Mike Rowe. I don’t necessarily agree with all his politics, but his a fabulously intelligent man with a great sense of humor and an amazing ability to tell stories.
Well, he has a new podcast and I highly recommend it!
You can find them here: http://mikerowe.com/podcast/ if you’d like to listen straight from the website, but I also found it on Stitcher, and I’m sure it is on iTunes as well.
Here’s the official description:
“All good stories have a twist, and all great storytellers are just a little twisted. Join Mike Rowe for a different take on the people and events that you thought you knew, from pop culture to politics, Hollywood to history… The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe is a series of short mysteries for the curious mind with a short attention span.”
Basically, Mike Rowe talks to you about an interesting thing for 5 minutes. You should give it a try.
This is just a friendly reminder that I’m setup for donations through Patreon.
You can donate as little as $1 a month. Every dollar is super helpful.
Right now, I am using the free version of WordPress. I’m quickly running out of storage space and I also can’t post videos. I would love to be able to afford an upgrade to the blog that would allow me to post more photos and cat videos!
In addition, I’d love to purchase some additional variations of my blog header (like my Christmas one), and maybe some additional art.
Thanks for reading!
Crazy Cat Nerd now has a Facebook page….https://www.facebook.com/crazycatnerd/.
I’m not sure why I didn’t create one before now, but I was inspired this morning when I wanted to share with you all that Harree was eating pretty well this morning, but didn’t want to make a full blog post about it. 🙂
Also, I can’t post cat videos here…but I can on Facebook!
So, if you want more frequent cat updates, cat videos, or to chat about Disney or The Sims…or anything else I post about, you should follow me on FB! 🙂
Thank you for your patience for the lack of blog updates. These last couple of weeks have been very chaotic and I’ve had trouble keeping up my normal routine.
Since we’re down to one vehicle at the moment, every time I need a vehicle during the day, I need to spend an additional 2 hours in the car dropping my husband off at work and picking him up.
The last couple of weeks have been filled with interviews, doctor’s appointments, vet appointments, etc…and toss on a couple of difficult assignments from my programming class, you have a recipe for me getting nothing done besides the must-dos. I didn’t even get to update my Duffy Disney counter!
Things have quieted down a bit now, and I anticipate returning to a more regular blogging schedule soon.
