My husband and I decided we wanted to take one more mini vacation while the weather was nice. I didn't make a reservation because #1 we didn't know what the weather would be like #2 didn't know when we would be able to get away #3 Hey, we had LOTS of time, all the kids would be in school. We packed the car up on Tue afternoon. I was tied down until (not literally,lol) about noon. So the plan was to take off early Thurs. morning sooooo I googled the place we wanted to stay. OOPS, no vacancy...went to plan B....no vacancy...went to plan C...no vcancy (I'm thinking I didn't plan very well) So I looked up Ka Nee Ta and the only vacancy was a room with a kitchenette. But the price...ouch. So I was thumbing through their website and saw that there was a half off special..to make a really long story short...if we left at noon on Wed (a day early) we could get the half off special...So off we went. Eastern Oregon Desert is so beautiful> We took a "back road" to ge there...have you ever done that...take the "unknown" road...I had directions, but it wasn't long before we realized our dirctions were a little off. We did get there...just not as quickly.lol. Love seeing the wild horses.

Now for the exciting news.... I love the work of DJ Pettitt. I was checking her blog out and they opened 4 more spaces in her class at Art and Soul...Yes! I signed up!!! Yippee!
