Friday's Feast

It's been awhile since I feasted and I thought I would partake this week.
When someone smiles at you, do you smile back?
Of course... unless I am having a bad day.
Describe the flooring in your home.  Do you have carpet, hardwood, vinyl, a mix?
Mostly carpet... an ugly brown carpeting.  The kitchen and bathrooms are all linoleum... that is shrinking and so it is pulling apart at the seams as well and the walls and it is disgusting.  I would love to put hardwood in the kitchen and ceramic tiles in the bathrooms and entryways.
Write a sentence with only 5 words, but all of the words have to start with the first letter of your first name.
Rabbits run round red raspberries.
Main Course
Do you know anyone whose life has been touched by adoption?
Yes, many.  My own to begin with.  I have two cousins who are adopted and I myself am considering adoption.
Name 2 blue things.
The sky and... the ocean.  Two of my favorite things.

Dreaming... and hoping

So I have only just been back from San Francisco (still haven't sat down and gone through all my pictures, better things to do lately... like sleep), and I am already dreaming of my next trip to plan. I'm not talking about Ireland either (which I am going in October). Well, not only have I already booked hotel and kennel for the dogs for my parents and I to get away to Glenwood Springs at the end of June, but I have been furiously researching hotels and such for us to all go to Hawaii together for about a week and a half. I am hoping that we may be able to island hop and see all of the larger islands. I had such a great time when I went last year... was getting ready to head home a year ago tomorrow. I really wished I'd had more time to spend there and see more. I would like my parents to go with me too. I am serious when I say that I would move there... but the financial aspect prevents me from doing that. How could I possibly enjoy living there if I had to work 2+ jobs just to get by and that wouldn't leave me any extra to travel with. Just not realistic. I read a blog and the authors family travels to Maui every year. It is so beautiful and I have to admit, I am jealous... So now I am off to dream and hope that it is possible for me to do this with my parents.
