Tales of The Traveling Tote #26

Hello friends, time for another Tales of The Traveling Tote adventure and Giveaway. Quarterly, a group of us tote gals share a connected post about the places we have been. We have made some wonderful friendships and some of us have met in person.  We hope you find our posts as fun as we do. You can find more about the Giveaway at the bottom of this post. To read how this group began, you can read HERE.


It feels like spring here in sunny California.  Miss Lola is loving the sunshine.

Sorry I do not have an exciting post.  No travels, except to the grocery store and Home Depot and sometimes  the nursery. I know this Covid has us all locked away.
I will be glad when we get some normality back into our lives.

We were suppose to go to Kauai this year.  With the Covid we just banked our weeks. Maybe next year.

A trip to the nursery.


We are enjoying our very own paradise.
Our sweet fur babies, Dante and Bella.

Our fur babies love getting their Gator ride everyday after their dinner.

Paul and I received our first Covid vaccine and will be receiving the second dose on March 10th. It was so easy and organized. Hopefully the second vaccine will be easy as well.

Jackie from Purple Chocolate is hosting our Giveaway this month, so be sure to visit her blog and leave a comment for a chance to win this darling gift.


I hope you visit the other tote gals to see what they have been up to.

  1. Linda, we are all in the same boat, no travels to share. Miss Lola looks very content to spend time outside on your beautiful property. I've spent a lot of time at our local nurseries and garden centers. Makes for a wonderful safe outing while getting ideas for new plants to add to our beds. I love all your daffodils, my favorite flower. Glad you and Paul are scheduled for your vaccine. Happy March......

  3. Ha ha, love the Roomba ride! And your fur babies are adorable, how cute that they expect a nightly gator ride! I am a firmer believer that flowers make everything better, and they always bring much joy! It must have been hard to cancel your trip to Hawaii, hopefully you will be enjoying luaus and leis this year!

  4. Lola on the rumba is hilarious! And so are Dante and Bella getting a daily ride on the Gator. These are the simple joys we take pleasure in while on lockdown. Your garden is a dream, Linda. The daffodils in bloom are the surest sign that spring has arrived. Cheers to March and a little more of what we knew as normal in the months to come!
