Friday Potpourri

Hello there ~ it's Friday...

my favorite day of the week
other than Sunday that is

I have been rather absent this week
and I apologize

with making lists
and checking them twice
I have not got around to many of my favorite reads

I must make a promise to myself
oh yeah ~ here I go again
another promise....

to take the time and relax ~ unwind and read
I will do that

a girl that I work with lost her Mom this week
the funeral is tomorrow
she had been sick for awhile
but only diagnosed 2 weeks ago ~ scary

when I saw this quote I said to myself
there ~ there is a message 

I have been wanting to take a picture of
my new do
but it seems morning is not my best time
and it is dark when I get home
so maybe on the week-end

I really have to get the upstairs put back together
as the office is all painted
and the flooring is done

baseboards will have to wait
I can live without them ~ right?

Saturday night we are going next door
it's game night

and may a few of these

I also want to give a shout out to a very special girl
who is celebrating a birthday on Saturday

right now she is traveling through India with her camera
and taking some amazing pictures
if you have not been over to see them you must go now!

Happy Birthday Kim!

are these not one of the cutest pairs of shoes you have ever seen??!!

I know some of you are planning your Thanksgiving
I will be back soon with a little give-away

so I leave you now
and wish you a wonderful week-end

Hi Lori,
So sorry about your friend's mum....that was very quick, wasn't it ? It really brings it home to us to live life to the full.
Enjoy your weekend with your neighbours and have fun. XXXx

Oh Lori - I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's mom. That's scary and yet a reminder that life is fleeting.

I hope you have a great weekend and a couple cocktails, too.

I'm so sorry about your friend's mother...that was very quick and it doesn't make it easier. Tomorrow is promised to no one...not sure who said that.

Love all of your images. Would love to see your new 'do'!!! Happy Weekend!
