Lordy, Lordy, I love you, girl. You truly are a kindred spirit. I have yet to find what I want when shopping, and once something is in your mind, how can you even LOOK at anything else? As for DIY projects, don't even talk about them! I remain the klutziest woman alive, as cupboard knobs catch onto my clothing, door jambs rush out to conk my hips, and –– my worst enemy –– appliance cords wrap themselves around my legs in an effort to trip me. (In fact, I believe my vacuum cleaner hates me and is conspiring with the hair dryer to do me in.) Do you think this has anything to do with the fact we're journalists, who function better in other areas? In any event, I love your blog and hope you'll continue sharing your escapades. I need a laugh once in awhile. ;-) Hugs, cj

Thank you for sharing this beautiful time of your in our nation's capital. I always love your postings, but your photos today are exceptionally beautiful! cj

So, I'm extremely organized, to the point of being O/C, yet a professional writer who is also very creative in other areas. I think my New Year's word should be FOCUS. Thanks for sharing your life and passions with us, Tracey. And hugs from the Hoosier State. cj

Writing from northeast Indiana, where snow is mounded up alongside walks, but streets are relatively clear. Just slushy. The sun was out today after several days of gloom, and I nearly flew out in just my 1) jeans, 2) cotton blouse, 3) fur-lined vest (not sure what fur; it looks like road kill, and 4) short boots. Heat wave! Spring! NOT. I bowed under to a wintry blast that smacked me on the front porch, and donned heavy twill coat before leaving. So, yeah, I relate. As a writer who actually has a current assignment, I also TOTALLY relate to the 24/7 obsession about same. Yes, my friend, we ARE O/C. Maybe no Monk, jumping over cracks and washing our hands eleventy-hundred times, but O/C all the same. Somehow, I suspect you knew that. ;-) Keep the blogs coming. Love reading your work. cj

Hi, Kim I'm fairly new to these blogs, but so enjoy your bright, cheery colors and Craftsman bungalow. I know you're in Central Florida, which is where I also had a bungalow (in Eustis). In fact, it looked so much like yours that it makes me homesick –– even though I'm a Hoosier and had to return to Indiana. Anyway, blah, blah. Just wanted to say hi and encourage you to keep up the good work. We all love you. ;0)

What would I do without my clothesline? Here in Indiana, I live in a vintage Craftsman-inspired home in an historic district. Throughout our "warm" seasons, I line dry knits and cottons I don't care to shrink in the dryer, in addition to blankets and the like I've used during colder months. It's a time for introspective thoughts and de-accelerating from life in the crass lane while enjoying God's out-of-doors and backyard creatures (butterflies, birds, etc.). Every backyard should have a clothesline! ;-)

I say, old girl, hadn't seen the vulcanized version before. Here in the Heartland, we grew up with toy WOODEN bricks. Several years ago, while living in Florida, I was besotted to find a small set at a flea market and have made several cottage-type buildings. Great old toys and jolly good fun. Well, cheerio!
