Dear friends, do you ever have a day that just makes ‘sense?’  I have plenty of mixed-up messed up days, but today has been so wonderful so far.  My cousin came and visited sponateously last night and we had breakfast and lunch together.  I have serious California dreamin’ this week, and today I reconnected with an old chum from college, who now lives in California.  And for the kicker, she makes these wonderful little critters she calls spud muffins, and I live in Richland, Washington, the home of spudnuts, the wonderful potato-flour donuts.  It may not seem like much to you, but I live for these little connections.  And isn’t Stanley here a dear heart?  Julie has a blog, too!  spud muffins!
