Luscher Farm

There are two dog parks and a trail nearby the farm. Lots of parking available.

This was my “go to” place to walk with my dog. Beautiful scenery along the trail. You can own a plot to grow your own crop. They give cooking classes and nature classes for kids. Across from the farm are other farms as well.

I currently live in Tigard, OR. I’ll need to find a nearby trail for my dog and I. 😊

George Rogers Park

We’ve been in Oregon now for 3 months (arrived in January 2017) and FINALLY I went to George Rogers Park.

I decided to take my dog, Melbourne aka “Mel” for a walk. The last time he was in a car was when we drove from California to Oregon and it was that big snow experience. He had no clue as to where we were going.

I drive in and parked where the entrance was and didn’t know that there was more parking further down near the lake. Now I know better. =]

We started walking and I remember to bring a bunch of bags, just in case I need to pick up after Mel. The lake was BEAUTIFUL. I heard ducks, there were runners, walkers and cyclists. Lots of trails and walk bridges. There are places to sit, there is a public restrooms and places to have picnics.

Whenever the weather isn’t overcast or raining, this will be a “mommy” and “doggie” thing.

Honey and Tea

A cup of green tea and a drop of honey is the best remedy for a sore throat.

This tiny bear bottle of honey cost 2.99 compared to a 12 oz at 5.99. I don’t use that much.

Feeling under the weather has me not cooking much but next week I should be back to normal. 😃

At A Pub 

Yes, it’s early but I’m not here for alcohol. My husband’s favorite English soccer team Liverpool is playing against Burnley.

We are new to Oregon and it’s a place that we can meet fans and get out of the house. 😉

Big screen tv, people yelling, cheering and screaming.

We ordered Croque Madame (painted hills ham, Pullman loaf, fried egg, be’chamel sauce) no loaf so we are getting a bagel. 

So far..Burnley scored first. Ugh!!

Wizard World Comic Con

Last time I went to a theme Comic Con was last year in San Jose, California.

This was my first time attending Portland. It was fun. There were a few speakers that my hubby and I went to see.

Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany was there being interviewed and answering audience questions. She is an amazing and talented actress to play multiple characters on the show. Sadly this season will be the last. ☹️



We also saw John Barrowman aka Malcolm Merlin from “Arrow”, “Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow”. He gets around huh? He was very entertaining and talkative! Also FUNNY!



It wasn’t too crowded at the convention center. There were lots of people in costume. Alas, me and hubby weren’t in costume. Perhaps one day?


It wasn’t easy to get “Iron Man” to pose alone. Families and kids kept getting in the picture. This woman and I asked if we can get a solo pose and we got it!

“Belle” was there!
