Friday Potpourri

Breathe in and out
ahhhhh ~ Friday



after taking a little break
that was much needed I may add
I am back

have you ever had one of those weeks
that there is just something special going on 
every night and you feel like you are being pulled
in 20 different directions at the same time

yup ~ I had one of those
I feel like I have been put through the meat grinder
stick a fork in me because I am done


when I stretch myself too thin
and don't have much alone or me time
I tend to get cranky ~ and that is where I was last night

but it's a new day and the weekend is right around the corner



Mom was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday
so I picked her up ~ took her home and got her all settled

I was over again last night and I cannot get over how well she is doing
she is like a rubber ball ~ a tough chick for sure
bouncing back after her surgery



since tropical storm Andrea is headed our way for the weekend
I am going to my uncle's place tonight to steal some rhubarb
as I see strawberry rhubarb crisp in my future

I cannot wait for the local berries ~ so sweet and juicy




it will go great with a cuppa tea
and my blanket along with a good book
as there will be no outings or yard work accomplished this weekend
and do you know what ~ that is ok with me!


if I could get away with not leaving the house all weekend
that would be ok with me ~ but that's not an option
but I will take all I can get!

Wishing you and yours a beautiful weekend.

Have a lovely, restful weekend Lori.
..... and, it's so nice to hear that your Mum is recovering well. Tell her that Jackie in England is thinking of her and sending speedy healing vibes across the pond !! { .... even though she hasn't got a clue who I am !!!! haha} XXXX

I'm so glad your Mom is home and improving daily. It's amazing how much personality and attitude seems to factor in ones healing. Sounds like you got some good genes girlfriend. I hope you read a good book and recharge! That's what I'm planning.

Funny how even the special times can wear us out. Sometimes I long to get out and when the day or evening comes, I just want to stay home and snuggle in! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and the news about your mom is just terrific. )

BTW, are you doing Pinterest? I just added to a board all of the books I'm reading or will be reading. Let me know and I will give you my info.
