  Happy Friday! And Happy Spring!!!!!!!!!! The SUN yesterday sure was nice and it made it feel like spring round here!!! Here is hoping for some more of that today! :) How is your bracket doing???   Oh my, I did pretty good yesterday - but I certainly did not pick Dayton over Ohio State nor did I pick Harvard over Cincy. What an upset that was! Hopefully I can pick 'em all right today!!!   Enjoy this weeks selection of quotes and I'll see you next week with some more. ...geri   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Two men look out through the same window: One sees the mud, and the other sees the stars. ~Fredrick Langbridge   Dreams are but thoughts until their effects be tried. ~William Shakespeare   Failing can be good, as long as it doesn't become a habit. ~Micha...

    Happy Friday! I hope that your week has been lovely.  We started out very WET!  We have already surpassed our normal rainfall for the month - I was about to build an ark.  But then the SUN came out and we had three glorious spring like days in a row.  Ahhhh, I love the sunshine.   I hope you had a wonderful week as well.

          Happy Friday!  I hope this finds your week ending nicely.  Any big weekend plans?  Mine will be a mix of work and football watching!  Saturday I have a buyer out and it will be a marathon day of looking.  But luckily they are big Hawks fans so they want to wrap it up on Saturday so that we can all watch the big game on Sunday.  Woo hoo - go hawks!!  I hope you have a fantastic weekend.  Enjoy the quotes and I'll see you next Friday with a new selection. ....geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   Do what you can, with what you have, where you a are. ~Theodore Roosevelt   The difference between whether you say, "I wish I would have" or "I'm glad I did" at the end of your life is whether or not you take DECISIVE A...

    Happy Friday!  I hope that your week is wrapping up nicely.  It has been a lovely week in my world - some quiet time to read, shopped a bit, spent time with my family and friends, and baked some more cookies - YUM.  I so love this time of year!  I hope you are enjoying all that the season has to offer. Since work is quite I am going to take some time off with my husband and take advantage of it.  Thus I won't be posting any quotes next Friday like normal.  Enjoy this weeks selection of quotes and see you in two weeks with some new ones.
