Santa Cruz Mountains

I spent the last week house sitting in the Santa Cruz mountains spending time with Corsa: and Godiva: And 4 chickens that delivered me a fresh breakfast each morning: I had hoped to do a bit of exploring, but the rain didn’t make that too conductive. We only got out for one short walk the entire time I was there. Instead, I spent a lot of hours in front of the computer trying to catch up on all the work … Continue reading

I Need A Life

I have been spending way too many hours in front of the computer lately with no indication that anything is going to change in the near future. It’s not that I don’t enjoy what I’m doing, it’s just that I have a bit more on my plate than I planned to have. The consequences of taking on a new project. This past Friday I had a full day to work without interruption because I was house / dog sitting for … Continue reading

Looking For Feathers, Finding Goose Crap

It’s a lot harder to find bird feathers than one would expect. I figured if I headed to the golf course where I know a bunch of geese were staying for the winter, I would have no problem finding a bunch of feathers (an artist friend had asked for some for a project she is doing and I said I thought I could find some). As I headed off on my futile venture, I first came to a large oak … Continue reading

Almaden Quicksilver Park Hike

This past month I feel like I did when I first started blogging and building websites. At that time I had a full time job and then I would come home and spend another 6 – 8 hours working on the blogs and websites. I was basically working two full time jobs. Although the days were long, it was also a lot of fun because I really enjoyed what I was doing (I had to be since I was spending … Continue reading

Most Days

Because I am able to travel quite a bit, it sometimes looks like I don’t have to work a whole lot. If only this was true. I end up spending a minimum of 4 hours a day in front of a computer, 7 days a week. Most days I spend a full 8+ hours. The sad fact is that even though I can work anywhere I want, I still have to work. While I don’t mind working where ever I … Continue reading

Change of Plans – No Costa Rica In January

I had been planning to take off to Costa Rica sometime in January and do another month long stay like the one I did a few months ago in Mexico, but it looks like those plans have to be changed. The main reason is the new blog I started about a month ago – Penny Experiment – which will require me to be around to keep it going. Basically, I have 100 pieces of postcard artwork coming in that I … Continue reading

House Sitting For This Week

I’m spending this week house sitting which is a pretty good way to earn some extra money when you are a digital nomad. The fact is that I am going to be spending the majority of my day in front of my computer working, so it doesn’t matter where I do it. If I am someplace that is beautiful, I’ll make the effort to get our and explore it, but if the place is familiar like when visiting family, I’m … Continue reading

Kauai Water Spout

We saw signs for a water spout called Spouting Horn a couple of miles from the place where we were staying and decided that it would be a good walk for one of the days were were there. The walk scenery varied along the way, but some portions were beautiful: When the path met the ocean, it was a shoreline scene that combined of lave and sand. The water spout was a hole in the lava shoreline that shot out … Continue reading

Kauai Evening Stroll

These photos were taken the first night we arrived in Kauai. When we took our evening walk, we ran into a sea lion resting on the beach: As can be seen, I was still feeling the effects of the plane ride over: But the sunset didn’t disappoint…
