Accessible: California Strawberry Festival

19 May 2017

HI folks! Happy Friday...
Who is excited about this weekend's California Strawberry Festival? Me, me, me! :D

(c) CA Strawberry Festival.
For those of you who are concerned and curious about whether the festival is accessible, here is the information I have found thus far. [Please keep in mind that this is my first time too so I am going off of information I searched the site for.]

According to the website:
The festival is handicapped accessible.
Wheelchairs are NOT available for rent on the premises.
(c) CA Strawberry Festival.
Handicap accessible shuttles are available.
I have learned that if a patron needs a handicapped bus they go to the shuttle stop and the bus will radio for a handicapped bus to come. They have handicapped buses but they are on various routes. If one is not on that route they will radio another one to accommodate.

According to the "festival policy", the park area includes grass, wood chips and dirt pathways.

Don't forget your sun protection, cash, and a fun going spirit and I am sure we'll all have a fabulous time. Enjoy xo

#ChronicPain: Must Have Pants

16 May 2017

(c) Champion.
are you in chronic pain like me? do you suffer from trouble walking and getting your legs in pants? if so, I have an excellent option and it's fairly inexpensive so win -win!

Champion's women jersey banded knee pants have two pockets, are made of cotton (some colors do have some polyester in the material), have a draw cord for adjustability, are machine washable, and fall on me (5'2") right below my knee similar to the stock photo.

I love these pants and have them in both Oxford Gray and Black. They are comfy enough for lounging around the house, wear well to physical therapy, and not tacky enough when I have to go to the doctor's office or am joining a friend for a cuppa.

So if you are in the same boat as myself, do yourself a favor and check out Champion's jersey banded knee pants. xo

Salivating: CA Strawberry Festival

It's May and here in Southern California that means time to start salivating in time for the California Strawberry Festival happening May 20-21!!!!!! I know I personally cannot wait to visit my first California Strawberry Festival on Sunday...

For my fellow foodies...
(c) California Strawberry Festival.
Imagine with me (if you dare)... strawberry funnel cake, strawberry crepes, chocolate dipped strawberries, strawberry nachos, deep-fried strawberries, strawberry smoothies and margaritas, the “build your own” strawberry shortcake tent and strawberry popcorn!!
(c) California Strawberry Festival.
Indulge guilt free, because with each bite the non-profit food booths reap 100% of sales for their causes. The formula has proven to be a fruitful enterprise. Over the past three decades more than $4.5 million dollars has benefitted more than 20 southland charities including The Salvation Army and Ventura Teen Challenge.

So mark your calendars in case it passed your attention, grab a wad of cash (food tents only take cash; there is an ATM on site) and your appetites! See you there! xo
Dates: May 20 and 21
Times: 10am - 6:30 p.m.
Location: Strawberry Meadows of College Park in Oxnard, CA (3250 South Rose Avenue)

Z is for Zebras

30 April 2017

For my 2017 challenge, I was not sure quite what I wanted to blog about. Numerous ideas were coming to mind but each seemed to require even more energy and strength. So I've decided to focus on an acronym for ART:
A - Artists (musicians, painters, photographers, writers, etc.)
R - Reading (books, poems, etc.)
T - Theater (movies, musicals, plays, etc.)

On our last day (!) we'll be focusing on ZEBRAs.


A - ZSL London Zoo
One of my favorite photos taken at the London Zoo in 2014.
Zebras (c) the Joyous Living
R -
What a creative title for an alphabet book.


T - Zootopia
The first time I've seen the Zebra being the bad guy. Boo...

It's been a fun challenge this year and as always many thanks to all my lovely visitors and fellow bloggers/writers for visiting the site. Don't be strangers! xo

Y is for... Yesterday

29 April 2017


For my 2017 challenge, I was not sure quite what I wanted to blog about. Numerous ideas were coming to mind but each seemed to require even more energy and strength. So I've decided to focus on an acronym for ART:
A - Artists (musicians, painters, photographers, writers, etc.)
R - Reading (books, poems, etc.)
T - Theater (movies, musicals, plays, etc.)

Today we're focusing on...

Yesterday

A - Yolanda Adams
Last year, I loved Tyler Perry's The Passion that featured Gospel's one and only Yolanda Adams.


R - Quotes Starting with "Y"
Last year, Courtney (Maui Jungalow) shared with me the quote "Yesterday ended at midnight." It has stuck with me this long year.

T - YouTube Videos
Last year, I discovered Kathie Lee Gifford's "Without You" song about adoption that has stayed in my heart and touched the hearts of my adoptive mom and other adoptees/ers that I know.
