About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

More on Washington D.C.

Washington Diary Days 2 and 3: Well, Day 2 started well with a bit of a sleep in and then a trip to Arlington Cemetery to pay our respects to JFK and then it was back on the Hop On Hop Off bus to see some more of Washington - the Jefferson Memorial, etc. We stopped at the Holocaust Museum which is part of the Smithsonian and then visited the Ford Theatre which is where Lincoln was assassinated - fascinating.  Unfortunately then I started to feel unwell so it was back to the hotel for me and bed from 4pm until the next morning!
Day 3: A tour of the White House was on the agenda for the morning - what a thrill! So many paintings of Presidents! Then we took the Hop On Hop Off bus to tour Georgetown and had lunch there in a fantastic Italian restaurant.  Georgetown was gorgeous - no photos taken by me unfortunately as no cameras were allowed on the White House tour so I was cameraless for the rest of the day.  A pity really as Georgetown was very pretty and quite historic.  We visited the Stone House, which was a pre-Revolution house.  By the time we arrived back at our hotel our dear friends, Angela and Woody had arrived from Nashville to meet us.  So, after a joyful reunion we went to historic Alexandria Old Town for a fabulous seafood dinner.  This was another pretty place but I do have photos of this - we are having such a gorgeous time.
