   Happy Friday! Wow what a week Mother Nature has thrown our way!  We got snow and at one point I put a ruler in it and I had well over 7 inches and at that point it was still coming down. Then yesterday I went for the mail – between downpours – and it was downright balmy! Snow all around me – the ditch ready to spill over – and it was warm. They are saying SUN for the weekend. So we should have made everyone happy this week – a little bit of everything. Any big weekend plans? Maybe a little pre-Valentine’s celebration? I am planning on a quiet weekend with my kitty, book and/or Netflix. Sounds just perfect to me. Whatever you do, have a super good time. See ya next Friday! …geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Things are never quite as scary...

  Happy Friday!  WOW we have been super windy in my corner of the world.  Lots of downed trees and power outages.  Luckily so far I have escaped both!  They say today will be way calmer, here is hoping! Are you ready for the super bowl? Are you going to a party? Hosting a party? Or just ignoring the game altogether? I can’t say that I am very interested in either team, so I think this year for me it might be more about the food and drinks than the game.  Enjoy the quotes and I will see you next week with some more. Until then… Happy Friday! …geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Encouragement is oxygen to the soul. ~George Adams  Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. ~T.S.

  Good morning!  Oh what a beautiful sunrise we are having this morning!!   THis pic was from a sunrise a few years ago when we had snow.  No snow this winter.  But here is to a sunny day. KOMO weather says we will be near that 50 degree mark. Woo hoo!! I might have to break out my flip flops – ha ha ha! OK not really, 50 is still chilly for this girl – but I will enjoy the SUN.  I am looking to have a quiet day working from home, with lots and lots and lots of kitty snuggles. My girl has been a total cuddle bug since I came back from Key West. This last year hit her hard too – what a sensitive kitty. So hopefully days like this where we just hang is what she needs to heal and get well. And I am guessing it is doing my heart and soul pretty good too. J Enjoy the quotes and I’ll see you ...

    Happy Friday!  And WOW, I have no idea where the last week went. I do know, however, that I spent it mostly wrapped up in a blanket – my gosh it’s been cold - thus a pic from my beach vacation - pretending I'm still WARM!  And I feel kind of bad saying that cause compared to much of the US we really have not been that cold – but for us… well I am freezing! I have LOVED all the SUN though. And the moon – have you noticed that? OMG the last few nights it was so bright shining in my bedroom it actually woke me up. So beautiful!  And I am loving how long the days are getting!! Sunset is now past 4:30 – WAY past 4:30! 4:41 to be exact. Woo hoo!!!!!!!! I hope you have a lovely weekend. Enjoy the quotes and I’ll see you next Friday with some more. Until then…. GO HAWKS! …geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

 Good morning and Happy New Year! I hope that you had a lovely Christmas and I hope that 2017 is kicking off in style!   I’d like to say that I’ve missed you…  but I cannot tell a lie…  I did not.  OMG we had the best time in Key West.  The weather was just perfect for this sun loving flip/ flop wearing girl!  We got up and watched the sunrise from our balcony every morning.  We watched sunsets from the pier, the beach, Malory Square and from a catamaran.  We drank and ate and drank and walked and drank and shopped and drank and explored and drank.  Yep super chill and exactly what I needed.  I love Christmas and it was hard to ‘skip’ it, but I think for this year it was the right call.   Now back to reality – working on my new normal :)     I hope you enjoy the quotes and I’ll see you ...

   Happy Friday! I hope that your morning is starting off nicely – maybe with a nice HOT cup of coffee and a Christmas cookie :)   That is my breakfast. Oh I love Christmas!  I am definitely in full Christmas mode now. I’ve been baking up a storm, playing Christmas music non-stop and enjoying seeing all the lights and decorations. Can you believe that Christmas is just a little over two weeks away??? OMG that seems crazy. Time flies when you have lots to do! Ha ha ha! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? I am hoping to head to zoo lights, but I am feeling a bit under the weather so we shall see. I have never gone and I hear it is quite beautiful. Other than that just lots of football watching! :) Enjoy the quotes and I will see you next Friday with some new ones. Happy Holidays! …...

    Happy Friday! Did you have a lovely Thanksgiving? Did you eat lots? Did your team win? I hope it was a fabulous weekend and I hope that the holidays are kicking off in style for you! My holiday was grand. I spent it at my daughter and son-in-laws and we ate, we drank, we watched football and the Gilmore Girls and I got to help them decorate for Christmas! Yep just perfect. I am one lucky lady and I have so much to be thankful for. Enjoy the quotes and I will see you next Friday with some new ones. Until then have a lovely day. …geri   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Don’t promise when you’re happy, don’t reply when you’re angry and don’t decide when you are sad. ~Unknown  Stop looking back!

     Happy Friday!   And Happy ‘almost’ Thanksgiving!    Yep, can you believe that Thanksgiving is less than a week away. WOW! How the heck did that sneak up on me???!!!   But in looking at the calendar that is clearly what it says. Thus my quotes this week will be centered around Thanksgiving and being thankful. I hope you enjoy them. What are you doing for the big day???  Whatever you do I hope it is a super fantastic day!   And since next weekend is the holiday weekend I will be taking Friday off to spend with my family. The day after Thanksgiving is ‘DECORATIG DAY’.   Yep it is a tradition and best to not mess with traditions!! So enjoy the quotes this week and I will see you in two weeks.  Eat lots, enjoy time with family and friends, and have a super fantastic Thanksgiving! Big hu...

  Happy Friday! I hope this finds your morning starting off nicely. It is another wet start to the day for us, but they say we might see the SUN later today. Here is hoping. We are over 9 inches of rain this month – yep it’s been a bit drippy. I won’t be sharing any quotes next Friday. The Kid and I are off to the beach for a week of R & R. I jumped in with both feet after my husband died and have been going strong ever since. It is now 7 months and time to take a break, process it all, and let my body, brain, heart and soul recover. So with the BEACH on my brain – there is a theme to this weeks quotes.  Enjoy, and I’ll see you in two weeks with some new quotes. …geri  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  At the beach, life is different.
