    Friday Hellos


    Hello Folksies!
    Fridays are always fun fun fun for me. I tend to think that all my days are fun fun fun since I am always on the prowl to stay in my awesome bubble. Attitude kiddos, that's my advice. Attitude. And a good hair color and cut. hehehe. Here is how my hair looks after removing that offensive and aggressive white streak.


    I need to sit here at the computer for more than a few minutes at a time and really get caught up on my reading. I have seriously been busy this week since the weather has been so promising.

    Enjoy the weekend! I know I will. Prayers, hugs and blessings to all. Smile as if you are being paid to.
    Sewing mends the soul.

    Good Morning! It's Friday. For me that means it is late Sunday evening and I will start another work week in just a few hours. But, like Blondie says, it's all about attitude. I am so thankful I have a job to go to. And not a bad one at that.

    The last couple of days I have felt like I am finally seeing some progress in the "world's slowest move". I can't believe I have had the house for three months and it is still not ready. The major hurdle now is the floors. We have the flooring, and starting next week when my son returns from his weekend with DIL and DGS, he and DD's are going to try their hand at installing it to save Mom some money. DS went to see several rentals yesterday and still no luck. Most places are dead set against their dog - a 70 lb shepherd mix that is the most docile, well behaved dog I have ever seen. Both of their previous landlords have said on inspection when they moved out that they couldn't even tell a dog had lived there.

    Well, looks like our nice weather is gone. The 80's are returning. I know that doesn't sound like a big problem to those that truly suffered through this past winter, but it is hot to me.

    Hope everyone has a Blessed Day. Remembering those who are in need of our prayers and thinking about some of the problems and health issues that so many here on the forum are facing. (((HUGS))) to all.

      Good morning. Feeling much better today. Still stuffed up but I have more energy. Today I sit with my friend's husband again. Lunch is on him today, lol. I did not do a whole lot yesterday. I did get showered and dressed and took a box of stuff to the church. I did pick up a set of queen sized flannel sheets for $4. I always back my quilts with flannel. I bought the girls some clothes for Easter instead of chocolate. That will get sent away.

      Greg arrives tomorrow. I will be so glad to have him home for the weekend. We have a party to attend to tomorrow night. Should be a blast.

      I think I will take my quilt with me this morning so I can get some work done on it while I am sitting with Ted.

      Have a wonderful day friends. Another warm sunny day today.
      Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

        Good Morning,

        Not much happening here today and that's a good thing. I plan to bake an apple pie for the weekend and maybe cook one more pot of chili.

        The Girls have been outside and are napping. I got the rest of the water heater mess cleaned up yesterday. It's good to have hot water and have my bathroom back together and all cleaned up.

        We have to work in Cuba tomorrow. I have an appointment to show an apartment and I hope it goes well. I think I met the gentleman about 3 years ago when he was deciding whether to live in Cuba or go back to California.

        Today I have to make a decision on what to sew next. I love the Dresden bag tutorial that Jenny and Steven did. I will definitely give it a try.

        Wishing everyone a great day. Sandy, I'm still praying for you and your family. Hugs, Barb

            Everyone seems to be off to a good start today. I'm was up early and found DS's dog's sleeping cage empty, either Stella opened it herself and went upstairs or we've been dognapped! I'm having a difficult time deciding what to do this morning so I think I need another cup of coffee to help me stimulated my brain. In the meanwhile here is something we 'older' guys and gals can related to.

              So, True, May.. Picture taking was always a big deal and we'd all get dressed up, cleaned up and stand in line for our turn... Mom didn't tolerate any foolishness nor wasted her "film". It had to be perfect the FIRST time.... LOL

              Nothing major planned for today.. just looking ahead to the Massage on Saturday and the Shen Yun Music and Dance program on Sunday afternoon.

                Good Morning! I thought I'd show and tell a pic of me at a younger sweeter age. Auburn hair, see that Blondie? So.....what color should it be NOW? LOL! Serious, I NEVER know! That is why I've got this wonderful white/grey/auburn/brownish hair going on now. I need a colorist!!!

                Today is Yoga, (can't wait!) a little housecleaning and off to pick up my sister for our slumber party of sewing and visiting! I haven't had any real quality time with her in SO long, this is going to be awesome! DH is planning a wonderful dinner. Looking forward to a wonderful Friday evening.

                It looks like we'll get another couple of sunny days. 60's mostly. I can live with that. I really need to get out in the yard, it's a constant battle beating back the forest every year but so worth it once it's done and we can sit out there and enjoy it. Our neighbor got a couple new dogs and so put up a 6' cedar fence and in the process took out several of my most treasured shrubs. My Yellow Chain tree (one of the most beautiful trees I have ever seen!) and several lilacs as well as butterfly bushes I planted from babies. I'm more than a little angry, because it changes the look of that entire side of the yard. But in the scheme of things.....you gotta pick your battles and this just isn't worth my angst. You know? Peace. Breathe. And go to Yoga! And maybe a trip to the nursery to find some new plantings.

                I am off for one more cuppa, a shower and get my day started! Hugs/Prayers for all in need. Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend! Smile! It's good for the soul (really. there've been studies. it's true.)

                  I snatched your picture MayinJerset. I have a GDI that is always taking selfies to put on face book so I may just post this picture there. Why do these young ones feel they have to keep taking pictures of them selves and posting them.?

                    Good morning. Blondie, your hair is looking good. I'm still on my first cup of coffee. I was up early for awhile then went back to sleep, so I'm getting a late start. I sewed some yesterday and the bum arm ached pretty bad afterwards. No agenda today, just doing whatever... As always, I'm thinking of those going through difficult times and sending positive thoughts and prayers.

                      A brief note to say thanks for all the prayers and support. Love you all!! We are making progress and will get through this quagmire!

                        Ann, No problem about snatching the picture I 'borrowed' it from someone else.

                        About all the selfies, most are only half of their faces so what's the big deal?

                            Good Morning!!!! We are off this morning for the city. My sewing machine tote has came in. The first one had a nasty smell and a broken lid. The company was quick to replace it. Then we are stopping at the Lego store. The oldest boy has saved up enough money to buy one of the lego sets that he wants.

                            My husband has the next two days off. He is going with the children and me. This doesn't get to happen very often. So I'm excited to spend most of the day with him. This evening and tomorrow he has disaster relief training. This year the regional training is at our church.

                            I've had a great week decluttering the house. Still more to do but it has at least started. I got my first tote bag made and have to more to get done in two weeks for a benefit auction for a friend's sister whose house burned down.

                            Have an amazing Friday and weekend everyone
