“Use it or lose it” they said. I rolled over vacation time last year to this one and it’s timing out so .. with that .. I’m on vacation this week — and following the “no plan-plan.”
Phone chats with siblings and cousins.
Firing up the grill.
Shutting down the laptop.
A stretch of days with nothing to do and all day to do it.
You can get old pretty young if you don’t take care of yourself.
I’m feeling younger by the minute! 🙂
When’s the last time you checked out? Have you ever had a week of “purposeful nothingness?”

Bratwurst and burgers sizzling on the grill.
Spring rains a-coming.
Freshly cut hay. Puppy breath.
Soon? Lilacs in bloom.
Homemade salsa with cilantro and sweet onion.
Bud Light Lime and a Bells Oberon.
Corn on the cob… boiling in a pot.
Suntan lotion & Aloe Vera gel.
It was 84 F here in West Michigan today which meant that we “grilled out.” Yum!! I don’t care what we make it’s just always better on the grill. The temps are going back down to the 50s tomorrow; so what I say! We’ll take it. When you live in a cantankerous climate, you take what you get.
Summer is still a long ways off but …but being outside in the sunshine with delicious smells filling our neighborhood, it felt like summer is in sight.
What smells evoke summer to you?
