Aren't they wonderful?
Easter always makes me think of tulips.
there are so many choices...
These "parrot" tulips were used at
a wedding I covered years ago...
and I was fascinated by them.
I hope your weekend is filled with sunshine,
breezy warm weather,

all sorts of fun things to do....
how life sometimes just
doesn't go the way you'd planned?
my plans had nothing to do with the photo
But for those of you who have wondered if
my sweetie made it back from China,
and he brought pearls!
I will photograph them soon....
In the meantime,
this is the Chinese version of my little car,
a Honda Fit, even the correct color,
(But my little car has no bumper stickers, and is not
souped up like this one)
but that's not really the reason to show you this
see the air (well, the pollution...)
remind you of LA in the 70's?
Sweetie said that you could
taste and feel the pollution
It was thick enough to make you feel sick.
And most young professional people that
he met, saw or observed smoked also...
Now what does this all have to do with
I had just finished my first cup o' joe this morn...
and went down to the laundry room,
when I noticed a strange smell emanating
from our downstairs bathroom....
a really bad, putrid smell....
I peaked in, thinking someone had forgotten to flush,
and no, the toilet and the bathtub were filled with
Now let me just say right here that I have an
excellent nose as I have mentioned before
"a nose like a huntin' dog"
and my coffee was not sitting real well at this point.
249 feet of snake down the clean-out line,
and problem solved...
that someone had to clean all that up.
Where is Mr. Clean when I need him?
So, that is what I did today,
how about you?
sorry no smiles....

I think you all understand....
I am taken by surprise
had a giveaway....
But in the same post
she stated that she might not be able to continue
with this wonderful blog
whose quote states
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
now I know that daily posting is
an incredible commitment.
I don't blame Pam a bit
for feeling overwhelmed,
or over tasked,
or over committed,
That's easy to understand.
I also want to say that
I have learned so much....
merely, from reading her blog
that the thought of doing without.
Well, it makes me feel a little like
a child who is at the end of the school
year with a favorite teacher.....
A little freaked out.....
I love sarcasm....
I love irony....
I love a well turned phrase....
Pam does all of this well.
LIke I said...
each time I look at my prize,
I will think of how her writing has made me laugh,
think, respond, and return.
Big Smiles Pam!
Isn't it funny.....
how you can be in a rush to do one thing....
and something totally out of left field...
Mainemomma-Kristen started a fun group on Flickr
a week long color exercise....
I loved the idea, and wanted to participate...
but this was a week filled with dozens of tasks
LARGE & small...
I had very little time for fun....
But Green Thursday rolled around,
and I was determined to get something posted.
So as I sat at my desk and thought....
what is interesting and green?
There is was right in front of me....
I love unique pencils....
I love jars, bottles, pitchers, containers of pencils.
So there you are....
Made my day that anyone else thought
that this spur of the moment shot
