Friday Potpourri



it has been a busy week
and I am pleased to announce
that after all the rain
the sun did shine down upon us



Wednesday night
I left work ~ people were smiling
they had their sunglasses on
isn't it amazing how a little thing like sunshine
can change people's attitudes
after what seemed like non-stop rain


 


I look now to the week-end
a long one for us here in Canada
as we celebrate Victoria Day on Monday



my to do list is full of fun
well ~ most of it

planting my containers which entails
a visit to the garden center

a BBQ or two
maybe some drinks with the neighbors




and if the sun decides to stick around
maybe I can get to staining
that 7 miles of baseboards!




of course the lawn needs mowed
and the patio furniture needs to be put out
and cleaned

but even though these things are technically work
they make me smile
because it is warming up

it was a long cold winter



so to my fellow Canucks
Happy Long Week-end

and to the rest
my wish for you is sunshine
smiles & laughter!

Thank you for all the comments on my anniversary post
this really is a wonderful place to be!

Hi Lori! I am so happy that the sun came around this week! It was a busy one thought! Not enough hours in the day!!! It's raining again this morning. I hope it's not around for long. Have a wonderful holiday!
