Back to the Square

I knew I wanted to make a boy’s blanket and I wanted to do another new pattern. I can’t believe I actually went through five different patterns before I settled on the Granny Square Stitch. Although I have done this pattern countless times. I know there are countless ways of doing the same stitch and if it was a chance to learn something new? 

I crochet and I am opened to learning different ways, because there is “No one way” to actually do a crochet stitch. I enjoy learning something new (#5 – I believe it’s called a standing stitch).

Cheers! -Daisy {}

#1 Thi was a laid back video. Even though there were a few without masks on. The best part was going through the mountains. I didn’t agree with her about the workers being rude and wanting to go back. That would be a big “No” for me.

My first trip since COVID, Denver, Colorado, and it was a revelation.

Roberto Serrini • The Travelclast

While travel and vacationing have been put on lock down because of COVID, the idea of visiting or flying might seem unimaginable. So this trip to Denver, Colorado, the first I’ve taken anywhere since the pandemic hit, was monumental for me. What I found was that there was a beautiful city waiting to be enjoyed, as long as you enjoyed it responsibly.{}

#2  Now this video actually made me want to go and visit Denver. I also learned that there is little air here, but since I don’t walk too fast. I’m sure I can handle it. A lot of information and what to do and where to eat. Trying food in different areas is always so cool. Just wondering if it will be the same not eating meat?

CRAZY 14 Hour Road Trip From TEXAS to COLORADO! 😳

The Endless Adventure Nov 18, 2020

We’ve had a blast soaking up the heat in TX, but it’s time for some winter weather and mountain views! 🏔 We’re road tripping from sunny San Antonio to freezing Colorado and loved seeing the scenery change from dry desert to snow-capped peaks along the way  😍

Tour of Our INCREDIBLE Minimalist Tiny Cabin in Colorado! + Beautiful Mountain Hike

The Endless Adventure 94,718 views•Nov 25, 2020

We found the perfect tiny cabin in the Colorado mountains and happened to arrive in the middle of a snow storm. 

This was a super magical weekend in one of our favorite Airbnbs to date! We also explored nearby Idaho Springs, drove up the highest paved highway in the US and hiked around Evergreen Mountain to capture some amazing views! We love the hustle and bustle of cities, but nature is definitely our happy place 😍🏔 {}

# 3 & 4 videos – These two videos went hand in hand and I have always LOVED road trips. One day I will go on one. I also LOVE Texas, not only because of the food, but the desert looked like it was a quiet place. I had passed through it on my way to LA, but it wasn’t long enough to enjoy it. Although, I will NEVER do this on a greyhound bus ever again.

Side Note:  Sorry, I couldn’t get a picture for these 2 videos. I am hoping I can find another video closer to this year’s time frame.

Things To Do In Denver, Colorado

Kristen and Sam  We are in Downtown Denver, Colorado for an exciting day exploring the city! We hope that this gives you some ideas on things to do in Denver! {}

#5  Now this video I really loved. Out in the open is good, but so is a city. I liked the walk way where you can see a waterfall and the sights were just as cool as they were answering unanswered questions. I know I DO NOT like the cold, so if I ever visit it will have to be in the summer.

Then again one could always get a heavy coat and enjoy your walk with a cup of hot tea in hand.

The Endless Adventure •Dec 1, 2020 

The PERFECT Weekend in Denver! Mile-High Biscuits, Red Rocks, Colorado-Style Pizza, & More! 🍕🏔

It’s our last few days in Colorado, so we’re eating and seeing as much as we can! We traveled all over Denver trying delicious local favorites like mile-high biscuits and Colorado-style pizza and got a dose of nature at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. We also checked out some amazing art at both the Denver Art Museum and in the cool RiNo neighborhood. It was a pretty perfect way to end our time in the mile-high city 💗 Recreate our day!

Mile High Biscuits @ Denver Biscuit Company – https://denbisco.com/ {}

#6 My last trip to Denver and once again I am with Eric & Allusion from ‘The Endless Adventure’. One thing I learned: New York pizza looks better, maybe one day I can go there, and see if it tastes close. Like the way I say, ‘close,’ because in my book there is no other pizza then New York’s pizza. Can you tell I am a New Yorker? My second  (The waterfall in the previous video got #1 I just remembered, I didn’t say anything about all that delicious chocolates. That is a COOL reason to go to the 16th Street Mall. It is an outdoor mall and THAT IS THE BEST for me. I like the idea that I can get out of a building into fresh air as I shop) favorite spot was the street art district called – 

{} River North Art District

Neighborhood in Denver, Colorado

Description

Nicknamed “RiNo,” the trendy River North Art District features contemporary art galleries and hip concert venues in revamped industrial buildings. Food halls include Denver Central Market and The Source, a buzzy indoor venue with eclectic products and a bar for small plates and craft beer. Known for its colorful murals, Upper Larimer Street also has cocktail lounges, brewpubs with patios and late-night food trucks. ― Google {}

I hope you liked my trip to Colorado………

Bye IV Now, LD*

A Smile…

I am Smiling as I think about my new book and just grateful for not giving up and Believing in a better tomorrow…

I think I should have said, “God is Good & not all people are good,” but there are a lot of good in people. All we can do is pray for those who aren’t as good as they should be. Meaning no lying, taking items that doesn’t belong to you, or cause someone else pain etc, etc, etc……

Traveling Online #5: California part 2…

#1 – I had to go through five videos before I found one I liked. This one is another one driving through with good information and a nice sound to go along with the nice scenery in California.

It may just be me, but I have always liked looking out the window as I ride down the street. I would imagine what is down the way and hope we would go a different way.

Sidenote: I notice an  area along the way that I want to take a closer look at. That is the great thing about looking at a new area, you can stop, and get a closer look. One never knows what one will find rather it’s something to eat, a new outfit or any other possibilities…..

Lombard Street San Francisco | Crooked Street SF

•Nov 28, 2020

EDDvlogs  💻WEBSITE: http://www.eddvlogs.com/

Today I visit the CROOKEDEST STREET IN THE WORLD and one of the most popular locations in San Francisco — LOMBARD STREET. The main goal for this video is simple, I will share some of the history of this place, show you some of the amazing views you can get as you go through it, and share some cool facts about it as well. {}

#2   I saw a trolley and thought one cannot go to California without riding on one and Lombard Street  was heard from my previous video. I was really about to give up after 20 minutes and couldn’t find a video worth watching more than a few seconds.  “I am not a quitter” and came across this video.

Side note: This video didn’t just show pictures, but gave some information about this street that I would never drive on (well ride in a car, because I do not drive).

CATALINA ISLAND

California’s backyard GEM | Catalina Island weekend getaway

167,663 views•Jul 25, 2020

Eryn Krouse    Hey everyone! I’ve been craving Mediterranean Sea summer vibes, and I definitely got a taste of it on my two day trip to Catalina Island. Located only 22 miles off the coast of Southern California, Catalina Island is a fantastic destination for a day trip or a multi-day vacation. There is so much to see, do, and explore here, from bison tours, sport fishing, parasailing, scuba diving, sunbathing at Descanso Beach Club, fine dining, hiking, camping, and so much more. 

A huge thank you to Visit Catalina Island (http://www.visitcatalinaisland.com​) for hosting us!

#4  This video has made me REAlly WANT to come and visit this place. It looked to be a peaceful place to enjoy being away from a crowd of people. I liked the idea that the hotel also had a mini fridge and since everything closes early its a good idea to make a snack run before that time.

I just wished there were a few extra masks being worn, but other than that I still want to visit…..

Heads Up: Wrong Way…

Heads up people: 

When you see someone walking through an open door and you are walking towards them..

THE – You are going in the Wrong Way…..

You may not have understood why there is an “Enter” sign on one door and  an “Exit” sign on the other door.

I do feel sorry for you and can only laugh when that person whom you are trying to move out of your way just stops, because they refuse to get out of your way and you have to turn around and go out the right door…..

People are just too funny!!!
