Once in a rare while one finds oneself thoroughly immersed in heaven on earth.  I was driving home from an estate sale one sunny day last week and had to keep pulling off the road to take photos of "heaven."  First was the hillside within a roadside park.... yes, Michigan has beautiful roadside parks and mostly they are open now for the summer.  The daffodils here were absolutely perfect.   Such a sweet fragrance!

Next was an old house on a rural road with the yard overgrown with grape hyacinths.  The bees were sooo busy here I was careful to stay out of the way.  There were a few daffodils mixed in as well - double blooms... gorgeous. 

My GPS friend kept trying to steer me toward the main highway but I persisted and remained on the back roads.  Much more interesting and with time and space to smell the flowers.

Documentary..... NOT!!

I literally spent most of the past two months purging, sorting, selling and giving away a multitude of treasures from my stash, closets, spare room, cubbies!   The "American Pickers" should have found ME for their scavenging!   A friend suggested I should have made a documentary of the process.  It would have been too embarrassing!   Okay, no more hoarding!  Onward.....

REWORKing my thinking

Have you read the new bestseller "Rework" by Fried and Hansson?   How to simplify your life,
your business, your whatevers.  Do what works, get started, keep your lists short, focus, decide
and move forward, etc., etc.   Two bright guys have written a very useful book for business or just
plain life!  Easy, quick read.

Upside Down World

How delighted I am to have my granddaughter, Emily, living nearby.  Here she is with her doggie's dish upside down on her head.  Yes, the brown fluffy thing next to her is her dog trying to gobble his food.  Emily and her parents moved across the country during last week and are settling into their new home just a dozen miles from Nonna and Poppy.
