...as long as they're on someone else- or someone else's dog. The weather prediction for Market in Everett on Sunday was 30% chance of precipitation. Ha! Soggy socks and four rain-soaked bags of treats later, the sun came out and it was a pleasant enough day. Sales were good, but this guy, OTIS really spread the sunshine and smiles. Every time I heard my squishy,soggy socks, I thought of this face and I ended up smiling all afternoon.

My blog is taking different directions for a while. I'll be posting about Blue Collar & fun at the Markets but there will be some very personal posts once in a while. This might be the time for you to seek the door with the lighted, red EXIT sign. or go out for some popcorn for a couple of weeks. I need to purge and I need to write about it. Not for you, but for me. The Muse is upon me and I think I’m channeling Erma Bombeck. Don't I wish. It may end up sounding more like Stephen King meets Sigmund Freud. Frightening and disturbing.
The problem with climbing out of my occasional bouts of ennui is that I usually go to the other extreme- giddy with dozens of ideas for projects I want (or need) to do. Manic? Maybe, but I choose not to go there.. This time it's different. I need a major change. The wheels are turning and I'm not moving. I’ve come to to the realization that I must do something about all the stuff in this house. I’m overwhelmed. It’s stifling. Neither Neicy, from ‘Clean House' or the crew from ‘Hoarders’ have knocked on the door yet but…..it’s time for some changes before they do.

My dear friend, Kat, reminded me of something from the past that I'd forgotten.
The chick in this Mary Englebreit (illustrator-extraordinaire) print used to be my personal icon-my words to live by... my mission statement.
