     Happy Friday! I hope that your day is going well. OMG we are about to float away!  Geez, what a wet October we are having. KOMO’s website says that normal rainfall for October to date should be 1.61inches. LOL we had almost that much yesterday alone. Here is to November and December being not being so wet. Do you have any big weekend plans?  It is a work weekend at my house.  My kids are coming down to help tackle my 'geri-do' list.  What great kids!  Whatever you do this weekend I hope it is wonderful. Enjoy the quotes and I’ll see ya next Friday with some new ones. …geri  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hanging onto resentment is letting someone you despise live rent-free in your head.  ~Ann Landers The most difficult thing I have eve...

    Happy Friday! I hope this finds you having a lovely start to your day. It is wet and windy here. They are saying there is a storm a ‘comin! A storm to rival the ages!

Yep time to batten down the hatches!  They say it will hit tomorrow later in the day to overnight and they are predicting wide spread power outages. Ummm…. The hawks play Sunday – so say it aint so!

  Happy Friday! I hope that you have had a lovely week. We had a couple of nice fall days and then some typical rainy/gloomy Seattle October days too. They say wet this weekend – yep I think fall has arrived.   Ready or not time to pull out the boots and sweaters.  And talk about weather – I am actually working on this late Thursday night and I have the news on tracking Hurricane Matthew. WOW looks nasty.  My thoughts and prayers go out to those along the southeast coast.  I hope you are hunkered down and safe. We are looking to have a wet weekend ‘round here. The hawks are off Sunday but there are lots of other good games to watch so I am headed to the kids to hang out with them and watch football Sunday. Should be perfect. I hope whatever you do it is fantastic as well.  See ya next F...

  Good morning, I hope you are having a nice week.   For me the week has been  a tad sad.  On Sunday I learned, along with the rest of the world, about the passing of Arnold Palmer.  When I was a little girl, golf on TV on the weekends was a staple in our house.  Hours were spent with my dad cheering on the greats of that era…  Arnie, Gary, Jack, Lee Trevino, Tom Watson and Fuzzy Zoeller to list a few names that still bound about my head.  Sunday’s in the summer were so special.  My sister and her family would come over.  Dad and my brother in-law would often get a round in after church and then it was chicken on the grill, homemade ice cream churning, apple pie and golf.  The other days of the week we cheered on the Big Red Machine!  But on Sundays it was the “G” day….  God and golf :)...

  I hope that you have had a lovely week. Any big plans for the weekend? I plan to pretty much just chill at home (still trying to get caught up from being gone) and of course watch football and baseball!! Last Sunday we were on the road so I didn’t see any games. Although I saw scores so if you have to miss a week it was an ok week to miss – here is to a better outcome this week for my boys!!! GO HAWKS!! I will share that my drive to and from Seattle to Colorado was beautiful. If you ever get the chance to make the drive – take it. Not much traffic and beautiful scenery. And we really lucked out and had great weather too. Definitely lots of great memories made :) Enjoy the quotes and I’ll see you next Friday. …geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

  Happy Friday!   I hope you are having a lovely week.  Is it fall-like where you are?   Or still summer?  We've had a few nice days this week, but certainly more fall like now.  Time to be pulling out the boots and sweaters and packing the flip flops away.  So sad for this warm weather girl!  I hope you have a lovely weekend.  Enjoy the quotes and I will see you next Friday with some more. ...geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   Sometimes in our attempt to give our children what we did not have, we forget to give our children what we did have. ~Connie Podesta Opportunities are like sunrises - if you wait too long you miss them. ~William Arthur Ward The only difference between stumbling blocks and stepping-stones is the way in which we use them...

  Happy Labor Day! Can you believe that summer is just about over? It sure went FAST – but then I guess that is partly due to the fact that it took a long time for it to arrive this year. We had an amazing spring for sure, but then it fizzled out for a long time. Here is to a lovely fall with a lot of Indian Summer tossed in. Do you have plans for the holiday weekend? Mine will be a mix of work and play so not bad at all! And speaking of play I am off to Colorado next week so I won’t be checking in with quotes as usual. Miss me lots and I will see you in two weeks with some new quotes. …geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives. ~...

  Happy Friday!  Are you ready for a weekend? What big plans are on your horizon?? I hope something super fun. I am hoping to find my motivation (been looking for it for a bit) and get a few things off the geri-do list. It sure was way more fun when it was a honey-do list – ha ha ha!!   So wish me luck!!   And I hope you do something super fun as I will be living vicariously thru you – so make me proud! :) Enjoy the quotes and I’ll see you in a week with some new ones. ….geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble. ~Helen Keller  In the game of life it is a good ide...

  Happy Friday! And what a Friday…. It is going to be flip flop wearing Friday – so for me… the day is just about perfect!!!!!! :) What do you have planned for the weekend? For me… some baseball/football watching, deck sitting, leftover partaking and SUN worshiping.

   Happy Friday! WOW what a pretty day.  We certainly have had some nice days this summer, but then we’ve had our share of not so nice too – so when you get a day like today you just really appreciate it all the more.  Yep, certainly not taking days like this for granite this year.  And sorry this is so late today, just one of those days.  So enjoy the quotes, have a lovely Friday evening and I’ll see you next week.  Hopefully earlier in the day :) …geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Summer afternoon – to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.  ~Henry James  It’s a smile, it’s a kiss, it’s a sip of wine….   It’s summertime!  ~Kenney Chesney  Summertime is always the best of what might be.  ...

  Happy Friday! I hope your day is starting off nicely. Mine sure is… I get to see my kid today. Woo hoo for mom/daughter time. I am having lunch with her today and getting a tour of her job site too. Yep, it is looking like it will be a GREAT day!   I hope you have a lovely day as well. But I have to be honest, it will be hard to top my day :)  I am hoping to take next Friday off, so if I get to pull that off I won’t be sending out any quotes. So enjoy this weeks selection of quotes and if all goes well I will see you in two weeks. Enjoy, ….geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You must have long range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short range failures. ~Charles Noble  No one would have crossed the ocean if he could have gotten ...

  Happy Friday!  How was your 4th of July weekend? I hope it was super fun - mine was over the moon spectacular!  And your week so far? It is a short week so hopefully it is just whizzing by. Here is to another weekend! Although the weather sure isn’t looking to be very nice for us. Where is summer???????? April was so amazing I had such high hopes. After the last couple of amazing summers I think I got spoiled!! Come on SUN, come and say HI to us!!  I hope whatever you do this weekend it is fantastic. And I hope you enjoy the quotes.
