Friday Potpourri & Last Chance...

what a week ~ it has been a long one
with rain, rain and need I say it
more rain....

at least it is not snow ~ right?
gotta look on the bright side

I have been on a roller coaster of emotions
up and down ~ up and down

thankfully with the promise of the week-end ahead
with no concrete plans
let's just say it is a welcome sight

I will do some cleaning
and lots of relaxing
along with some reading and planning

planning for a visitor and some time off
much needed time off...

I want to make this ~ doesn't it look so good

and this ~ both found here

this is one bottle of white wine
3 cans of Fresca
and fresh fruit

I am making a batch for a little party we are having
next week-end

Thank you for all your comments this week
I know how busy the summer is for everyone and
just knowing that you are taking the time to read and comment

Hi Lori,
Try not to let the rain get you down. It has been raining here for a few days and I just say that it's good for the garden !! My glass is always half full, if not brimming over.
Just make sure that you make at least 4 batches of the wine and fruit thingy and you will be suprised how quickly the rain seems to be lovely !!
Have a fun weekend. XXXX said...

OOOOH! A cocktail recipe! I will try this one out! I love fresca but it doesn't taste the same not being in the big glass bottles. As usual your weekend sounds so lovely. A nice quiet relaxing one would be welcome now. I am tired of all the going that summer seems to bring! Atleast when it rains you don't have to be out in the blazing hot heat gardening though! Enjoy your weekend sweetie! Stay dry!

Love you!

Thank you for stopping by! xo
The wine and fruit mixture looks delicious! Rain sounds kind of nice right about now. It just stays around 100 degrees lately and doesn't seem to change!
I hope you have a relaxing weekend!

G'morn Lori ~
What a beautiful sweet serene write to wake up to this morning. I love your blog & the beauty of it. I will be following you.

Thank you for coming over from my sweet Maggie's blog to leave a comment for Charlie. Thisi s truly appreciated.

We had a dribble of rain off & on for 2 days but finally today, we are getting real rain. It has been horrible heavy heatwave here for weeks, unusual.

Violets being one of 2 favorite flowers, roses too, your nosegay is just so beautiful.

Again, from the bottom of my heart ... thank you.
