"If you realized how powerful your thoughts are you would never think a negative thought." - Peace Pilgrim

Yesterday Cheryl and I had our annual day of mom on the kid's first day of school. Lucky moms! Shopping, lunch, education. Good times.

So, I am pretty sure that our little town may be being closed off from the rest of the world. The two main routes in and out of our fair town are under major construction. So, on the way into town, with Cheryl driving, I documented our trip in signs.

Detours, detours, detours.

My awesome shoe! (not a sign, but very cool nonetheless).

Keep following the detour signs and you may find your way to the BIG city.

Go to far on the detour and this could happen. Don't worry take a left and you can get home!
While the detours and construction are annoying at times I have to say I kinda enjoy them. The detours take you off your regular route opening up new things to see. And the construction a block away from my house? It keeps the traffic down. Positive thoughts, positive thoughts.


  1. I'm with you, the detours are giving me an excuse to go on little adventures...note to self - leave extra early!

  2. I heard what kind of education you guys got!!!

    I do like heading off of the beaten path too. Much more interesting!!

  3. I am not a fan of detours, although we definitely had fun with them!

    Where's the picture of the "balloon" ... did it turn out?

    Sharon wants an education as well. So next time, you, me, D & Sharon! :)

  4. My solution is to go straight out Main to Berthusen to BBLynden Road to I-5 to Burlington. Then on the way home stop at the dahlia garden and get 25 blooms for $5.
    It's a win win...

    Glad you had a good mOm's day!

  5. Hmmm...I don't mind the detours as long as they don't affect me. I have one that is affecting me greatly right now in my efforts to make it to work and back home again. Unfortunately, I do not see the pleasure in driving 5 miles out of my way to get to where I'm trying to go. Perhaps if I weren't trying to get to work/home, I wouldn't mind so much, but when it adds more time to a 45 minute trip, it's not so fun.


Comments are great. They are like the Grande, 2-pump, Cinnamon-dolche, non-fat latte of the computer...Really! Thanks for the bloggin' coffee!
