Friday Potpourri

Ahhh Friday



the week is done and when it gets to this time
we look back and wonder where the time has gone
January almost over and here we are
getting ready to welcome February
the month of hearts and love
if you are into that kind of thing.....

My favourite band ever is The Eagles
I was fortunate enough to see them in concert in 2008
I cried and sang along with each and every song
it was a night I will never forget ~ their songs weave through my life
like threads in a quilt
ahhh the memories each song sparks

so yes I did cry when I heard of Glenn Frey's passing
what an artist ~ songwriter ~ singer

Thank You for the music Glenn ~ may you RIP

from my fav song ~ Desperado


 Wednesday night I picked up my niece Sam
we grabbed a quick bite then it was off to Michael's for a little girl time
that place really is dangerous
but armed with coupons and some great sales
we came out happy ~ not only with our new items
but with the time we spent together


I am always looking for new recipes and last week someone posted this one to facebook
it looked good so I clicked on the link and then pinned it
I made it last night and it was yummy!  It's called a taco braid and its really easy to make
a recipe to add into the rotation



I got most of my craft room straightened out on Sunday
you see I went out and bought fabric the day before to make a ruffled apron
and the room needed to be done before I could start
there is a method to my madness
so now when the mood strikes me ~ I can get right to it


we have dinner plans out this weekend but other than that
it is free and clear which is fine with me
time to get a few things done ~ maybe bake some cookies
and spend some time cozied up reading or watching movies
that IS the best part of this time of the year.

enjoy your weekend

As always your images are gorgeous Lori. That Taco braid had me salivating and I have book marked the recipe. Just hope I can get taco seasoning here in the UK?
I too was so sad when I heard about the passing of Glenn Frey because I too grew up with the Eagles. A very sad day for music lovers/our generation. Have a lovely weekend Sweets and thank you as always for your support over on Instagram also xx said...

Just love coming here and seeing your pics. That taco braid looks so good right now. Of course so do the lemon cookies! Trying to get back into the blogging thingy again. Of course, I had to stalk you here instead of just on FB! Love ya!

Very late to your blog, but I'm side lines at home with a bad cough and head cold so thought I'd read some of my fave blogs. I too was so crushed to hear of Glenn Frey's passing. Their music is a soundtrack for many generations and he will be greatly missed! Sending lots of love and hugs to you sweet friend!! xxoo
