Aromatherapy!

Forget the fake stuff. No matter how much money you spend at any given store for aroma, you can’t get it right unless you actually bake that apple pie, wash that white laundry or  have those flowers  in the house.  You must walk through the meadows and along the shorelines to smell the meadow-y or the beach-y smell we all love.  Anything else is a waste of money.  I can’t wait to drive through the cherry orchards, the apple orchards, through the woods to get my very own aromatherapy.

Go outside people and enjoy what you have. And if you live where there’s nothing good to smell,
come up here to Benzie County and stay with me at the Wayfarer.
But don’t come into my kitchen because my nose just discovered a rotten lemon, blech!

Subliminal message? 😆

Smell the beach

smell the water

smell the trees

And here are some guests sitting down, smelling the proverbial roses,
enjoying some vino and cheese.
That’s how you relax!

I took a first look inside the cottages today and I must say, I am getting excited about having people come and stay next week.

The book that I showed you in this post

A Christmas Angel?

Again this year, we had a spectacular Easter Sunday.  It was fairly warm and pleasant. A lot of wind but who cares, when the sun is out.

Easter Sunday means Dinner at Dorothy’s house.  The members of the family that happen to be in the area at the time come to her house for Easter dinner. Mike and the boys are still in Arizona, so I went by myself.  Yummy ham and my favorite sweet potato recipe!!

So, while waiting for everyone to finally get there, I walked around the house and found these little treasures

I think Fuzz is hording rocks :mrgreen:

The first crocus

Lilacs, my favorite

The cute, little cottage across the street from Dorothy and Fuzz’s

Some thing was tunneling under the snow!

A Christmas Angel….WHAT?  A Christmas Angel? 😯
The poor dear must have been forgotten when all the winter stuff was packed away 😦

Ah yes, back to more timely things – daffodils 🙂

Happy Easter everyone
