    Happy Friday and Happy Memorial Weekend.   WOW - how can the first of the summer holidays already be upon us? I have no idea where the last month has gone. Time flies when you are having FUN I guess :) :)   When I was a little girl I LOVED Memorial weekend. It meant school was out, the pool was opening and lots of summer BBQ's and homemade ice cream were on my horizon!    Here is hoping for a beautiful summer with lots of SUNNY days!   Enjoy the quotes and your 3-day weekend and I'll see you next week with some new ones!   ...geri   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It takes little talent to see what is under one's nose.

  Happy Friday! I hope that your week is wrapping up nicely!  What a week it has been 'round here - WOW the weather has been amazing - I so hope it is basically here to stay now through the summer! We so deserve it after the WET spring we had. I was just reading an article on KOMO that said with our current rainfall totals we should be carving the pumpkins and getting ready for Halloween! Yep, we don't usually see rain totals like this until late October!   The article also said if did not have one more drop of rain for the rest of the year we still would not make the driest year on record. Yep we are already above the driest YEAR and it is May! So here is hoping for more of these gorgeous sunny days!!  I hope you are having a lovely spring!! Enjoy the quotes and I'll see you next week...

    Happy Friday!   I hope that your day is going great!  And I hope you have been having some lovely spring weather.  We have had a mixed bag - seems it is either dumping rain or lots of sun.  Monday was stunning, for the 2nd week in a row.  I've even had a few summer clothes out already!  How fun is that!  And considering we had 3 times the amount of normal rainfall in March, those intermittent sunny days are such a blessing!
