Happy Happy Joy Joy

Wow, it’s been over a month since my last posting.  Sorry about that!

Our washer went on the fritz which was no huge surprise since it’s about 15 years old.  So we bought a new set which I absolutely love, love, love! 

My dear man checked with consumer reports and the one we were interested in just happened to be on sale at that time AND it was the number ONE on the best top-loading washing machine list ~ Score, score, double-score!  

So once the delivery and install was complete the new ones sat out from the wall a little further than the old set which meant my short arms couldn’t reach the shelf.  Not a good thing. But have no fear Super Husband was here to come to my rescue.

He added a lower shelf.  I added a little domestic flair and all is well in my world once again! Curtains hide all the household cleaners - which I can now reach ... 

and the electrical and water hoses are also hidden. 
Happy happy, joy, joy!

Bond Falls

Living in the U.P. (yes, we're Yoopers) we like to occasionally take a little ride to see some of the waterfalls in our area.

Michigan is said to have nearly 200 named waterfalls, all but one located in the Upper Peninsula. 

However most of those falls are quite small. 

This week we went over to Bond Falls and I have pictures to prove it.  They've built a wonderful boardwalk since our last visit so it is now wheelchair accessible as well.
