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.

The silver lining: number 1....

Well, the silver lining of being sick for over a week was:

  1. I watched the whole first series of "Hart of Dixie" (DD gave it to me to watch). It was great viewing for a sickie, a lot of fun with some sympathetic characters (and some great eye candy, too).

I have rather a soft spot for Alabama as I have actually been there (not something that I thought that I would ever do living so far away in Australia).  Our friends from Nashville took us on a day trip there to visit the Air and Space museum at Huntsville when we were in the U.S. in March.  I remember that I was so impressed by the quality of the roadside stops.  In Australia, they are usually pretty rough and ready but this one was beautiful and had even won an award!

Isn't this public bathroom block impressive?  I certainly think so - I just loved everything about America!

I'm glad you enjoyed Alabama. I have never been there. Do you think you'll return to the US one day?

I watched that show and loved it! Such a nice break from all the crime and hospital dramas and those reality shows.
Lovely photos of Alabama. We lived in TN for 7 years and ventured to AL a couple of times.

Hi Kaye,

I may end up opening my blog again, as I am missing it, I just have so much going on at the moment, it's one thing less to worry about, if you know what I mean? So I may wait until things slow down a bit and then start posting again,

Hope you're feeling better - and I agree that watching "Hart of Dixie" is a great way to while away the time :)

I'm glad you were impressed with our American rest stops! I just came back from vacation and loved having rest stops with everything automatic. The toilets flush, water comes out of the faucet, soap comes out of the dispenser, blowers dry the hands, all without touching handles or anything! Hurray for motion sensors.

I love your slideshows in your right side bar of the Santa's 12 Days SAL and your WIPs.

Lovely pics, Kaye. Glad you enjoyed the visit. I've never been that far south, I don't think. I've been to South Carolina, but not as far south as Alabama. Now you've made me want to go, lol.

And I really hope you're feeling better by now, Kaye. It's no fun being sick.
