(this post is written by Pops) On Friday night, Lita and I were having a quiet evening at home when, unexpectedly, an owl (which, for sure, had a prior life as a kamikaze pilot) came down our chimney, through the fire, over our fireplace screen and began flying around our living room. From experience, I […]

Happy New Year!!

WOW 2016 is here!!! It seems like forever since I’ve gotten on this blog – sorry about that! I hope all of you are following along on Facebook, Instagram and now Snapchat (litasworldjen) as I definitely post there much more often. There’s just never enough time!! Ugh…okay, New Year’s Resolution #1 – stop saying “I don’t […]

Just returning from a quick 3-day cruise from Vancouver back to San Francisco and this is my view as I wait to disembark. Not sure I’m ready to return to work tomorrow, but so happy to have enjoyed this fun little getaway!! Happy Tuesday!

Evening Stroll in Vancouver

It was a glorious evening here in Vancouver last night. They say the weather will change in the next few days, so our timing couldn’t have been better! Here are a few shots around Canada Place and the waterfront.      Of course, we needed a little “sustenance” in our evening.    We’ll be strolling […]

Vegan Vancouver

Just another quick phone post during our way-too-brief stay here in Vancouver before our cruise. I love this city for so many reasons – one being the amazing variety of food. On all our trips here, we’ve never eaten at the same place twice and always had delicious food!! Tonight, as we were just roaming […]

Pops and I were lucky enough to have a few days with the monkeys over Labor Day weekend. Here at some shots of the fun we had visiting Tiburon, Angel Island and Ocean Beach in San Francisco. (Posting from my phone – trying to get used to it since I always have it with me!!) We […]

Malibu Day 1 – 2015

We took the monkeys on a road trip for a few days of fun in Malibu in Southern California!!  Of course, all road trips have their tasty snack-attack stops as seen above! We arrive at Paradise Cove to stay with our great friend Sam who is house-sitting our friend Gary’s house – and OH what […]

Train to Sacramento

Even though I haven’t finished posting about our Utah trip (some things came up), I’m leaping ahead to share our train trip adventure from this past week. To kick off summer with the monkeys, Pops and I decided to take the Capitol Corridor Amtrak train from San Jose to Sacramento to visit the train museum […]

After our Petroglyph hike and our visit to Goosenecks, we had some time to relax at The Valley of the Gods B&B, so I took a moment to snap a few photos of the glorious afternoon. The lighting and the colors are just so intense and magnificent. Since our friends Kimberly and Eddied camped in the […]

As if seeing those amazing petroglyphs on our hike earlier in the day weren’t enough, we then make a pit stop at Goosenecks State Park. Now, I’ve definitely seen photos of this area before, but I truly didn’t even know where they were taken AND that we were so close to this area too. What […]

Day 4 of our vacation brings us FABULOUS weather. The sun is shining, the views from the B&B are spectacular, we’re rested and ready to get out there and hike. Our friends, Kimberly and Eddie are interested in hiking to look for petroglyphs and, as luck would have it, Gary, one of the B&B owners […]

After leaving Natural Bridges State Park, we continued our journey to our B&B in The Valley of the Gods with the final leg of the journey being a ride down the Moki Dugway. The Moki Dugway is a 3 mile, nicely graded dirt road, with a lot of switchbacks, descending at about an 11% grade […]

As if this trip hasn’t been already way more fabulous than I could imagine, we continue along with Day 3. We leave beautiful Moab and drive South in a caravan with our friends Eddie & Kimberly. The weather is still a bit nutty (which I personally love) and we’ve driven through a bit of sunshine and […]

We continue on Day 2 of our trip where we head to Dead Horse Point State Park after visiting Arches National Park. Dead Horse Point is located outside of Moab at an elevation of about 6,000 feet….and more importantly, the views along this high plateau, 2,000 feet above the Colorado River, are just amazing! I’m […]

Here we go with Day 2 of our trip to Southern Utah….I’m splitting this day into 2 posts because, well, we saw 2 very distinct areas and thought they deserve to each have their own spotlight. We begin the day with another fabulous breakfast in Moab here at Eklectica: I must say, I’m really loving […]

So, seriously, we just had the BEST vacation E.V.E.R!!! We flew into Salt Lake City from San Jose on Alaska Airlines – um, did you know you get free beer and wine on this airline?!?! For someone who’s a big CHICKEN about flying this is kinda a HUGE bonus! AND they have a vegan snack […]

Bubba’s Best Friend

Bubba has a BEST Friend! Meet SIMBA! He’s our neighbor’s dog. They are inseparable when together…and just so stinkin’ cute in their own ways. There’s the sturdy, calmness of Bubbster: He exists with almost a “Zen” quality at times: Just a total relaxer if there ever was one: As opposed to the spunky – almost […]

Springtime Begins

I hesitate to even speak of Springtime as most of my New England relatives deal with yet more snow! but…. there are absolutely beautiful signs of Spring happening around here. First, there’s the arrival of Martha Stewart’s April/Springtime/Easter magazine edition: Which I happily got to enjoy reading while sitting at the park as the bulldog roamed […]

Randomness 2015 – Series #1

Um, so you may have noticed there’s not a lot of posting going on here at the blog this year. I assure you though, there is more posting happening on other social media platforms and hope you will join me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Google+. I’m finding that finding the time to post has […]


Aaahh this boy!! My youngest Grandson – my hubby’s “mini-me”. He is in-a-word just AWESOME! He keeps us all so very entertained with his constant chatter, ideas, expressions and love. He has such incredible self-expression and self-confidence and oh my gosh I hope he never loses these parts of himself. I hope he never finds […]

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays from me and my crew…yep this is us. We don’t seem to take those lovely family pics – which is why I fit in here oh-so-well!   We all have our qwerks, our unique abilities, our likes and dislikes, (the inability to stand still for a photo being one of them) and I […]

Joy oh joy oh joy!! During our trip to Spain – the glorious land of olives and tapas – I received an email from the O Olive Oil & Vinegar company asking me if I would be interested in trying and reviewing their olive oils and vinegars. What timing!! Of course I said YES!! I’m […]
