STUFF, STUFF AND MORE STUFF...... THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE....AREN'T THINGS.....




Oh my......what a job this moving is!!

As we get ready to move into a smaller home and I am having a day to myself while packers are loading up and packing last minute things....an important thought comes to mind.  Why oh why do we as humans feel the need to accumulate so much STUFF??


Everywhere I visit on the web it seems as though everyone is either buying or selling MORE STUFF!  

Really.....when all is said and done you really only NEED  a very few things to live in this world....the rest is just added baggage. 

  Then......when you have lived your life and realize that you need to relieve yourself of all this STUFF....you must face the fact that you have to get rid of it or put it somewhere.  Ahhh........
a stress causer.....FOR SURE!  LOL LOL

But I think I may have come upon an easier solution.....I know it is not really doable in this world...but it is just a thought....here it is....


Just hire a giant to move it ....... house and all....then no packing and no purging.  (O:(O:(O:

what do you think?

Keep smilin'

STILL PICKING ROSES THROUGH ALL THIS PACKING AND PURGING..............



Picking...Packing.....Purging..the three P's  (:
I seem to still find time to check my garden during this packing and moving and remodeling business.  

I use almost anything that strikes my fancy for a little vase.  The cow cream pitcher seemed the perfect fit for one of these wild roses that still seem to bloom during this blast of heat during an Arizona summer.

My roses go wild if I'm not tending to them properly and I've been so busy that my gardening and blogging have fallen by the wayside.  

This morning Brad is over at the new house overseeing the laying of new flooring and putting some paint samples on the walls.  Oh my...paint....what a difficult item to tackle.  It is always the case that paint looks great in one room and horrible in the room immediately next to it.

We will get this figured out with enough paint samples on the wall.  LOL LOL LOL

Just taking a little break during packing to check in on blog land.


Please have a beautiful day.
