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.

Nashville Diaries: Days 2 and 3

Nashville Diaries: Day 2 - In the morning we went to church in the most gorgeous church - very impressive church buildings and a great service. Then lunch at the WaffleHouse afterwards. Then in the afternoon the guys went to a Vanderbilt baseball game whilst Angela and I hit the shops - safe to say a little bit of damage was done to the bank balance! Then we all pitched in to cook a delicious dinner of grilled pork chops, salad, asparagus and baked potato!
Day 3: Day trip to Huntsville, Alabama to the Space museum - the IMAX was amazing, especially the Hubble telescope film, it really felt like we were in outer space! Saturn V rocket ship was pretty impressive, too, as well as the Lunar landing module and lots of other things. I learnt a lot about Von Braun as well - without his defection to America at the end of WWII there would have been no moon landing! Fascinating! After our day trip, Joe and Woody hit Tootsie's and went Honky Tonk bar hopping whilst Angela and I went to a girl's night in and her lovely friend, Mary's house whilst we critiqued Dancing with the Stars.

P.S. I am sitting in Union Square, San Francisco, with the sun shining as I am typing this, drinking some of the best coffee I have had so far in U.S. - beautiful! Off to Alcatraz this afternoon.
love Kaye  (sorry no photos atm as i am having trouble uploading them)
