A Happy Place!

I've been in the beautiful Portland, Oregon area for the last week. Wow! What gorgeous views! Beautiful yards! Breathtaking horizons!
 In the photo above you see Mt. Hood as it appears from Vista House at Crown Point, east of Portland. We could also see Mt. Hood from Portland because the skies were clear. In fact, they were having a freakish heat wave and it was hotter here than it was back home in Texas!

I had been sent a month's supply of HCF to try in exchange for an honest review and I finished it during this trip. I have to say that I could really tell a difference. I was warned that it might be a gradual thing, but I guess my body really needed those amino acids this supplement supplied. I have some serious food allergies and I think this supplied some things I might be missing by avoiding those foods.
 I am always a nervous wreck going through the entire airport experience, but I was calmer this time around. I also felt that it helped with the occasional depression I have always fought.  I consider myself a happy person, but that doesn't mean I don't sometimes deal with anxiety and worry.  I would certainly take it again! It is a little pricey, but you can save by enrolling in their auto-ship program. Even without the savings, it is cheaper than the gym or doctor! You can also get a free 14 day trial on their website. At least check it out. I was impressed.

I will have a lot to share in the next few weeks about progress in the hill country as well as some exciting sewing related news that is on the horizon. My year has been a whirlwind of travel and renovation work, but I still have my sewing machine humming during those quiet moments!
Speaking of sewing machines, look what I found for $37.50 at the thrift shop (they were having a 50% off sale)! It runs beautifully, too! (You can never have enough sewing machines, right?) It didn't come with any extra feet or accessories, but I know I can find those online.

I'll be back soon!


  1. Nice score on the machine. And I agree you never can have too many sewing machines.

  2. Vista house and crown point were where we used to sit and enjoy evenings as a teenager. Sit and watch the river, clouds, and dream.

  3. We certainly are having a very HOT heat wave here on the West Coast. How fun to find a sewing machine for "change". If nothing else I would sew my paper cards and such on it...that is what I use my old plastic cheap Singer for. Looking forward to your sewing reveals...

  4. It is a beautiful location. Enjoy your time away.

  5. Linda, I was there, too! Visiting my daughter & family for the week. We lived there for 16 years and I miss it (and my kids!). Nice little machine you found!

  6. I have a Janome, too (different model). Janome's are great machines. Have fun with it.
