  Happy Friday! Yep, if I a sharing quotes then another week is almost over. Crazy, where does the time go?  What do you have planned for the weekend? Last weekend we were in the midst of summer here in the PNW – we got over 90° which for us with no A/C is quite warm! And this weekend, back to spring with temps 30 degrees cooler. I am headed to the Ms game on Saturday and I will be layered up and probably taking a blanket. LOL, what a difference a week can make! Enjoy the quotes and I will see you next Friday with some new ones. …geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I do not understand the mystery of grace - only that is meets us where we are, but does not leave us where it found us. ~Anne Lamott  Kind words can be short and easy to spea...

 Happy Friday! We are having the most beautiful spring. So nice after enduring the wettest winter on record. And honestly I think the reason we are is because my honey dialed it up for me as he knew it was the only way I would get through these first few weeks. My husband has been gone 3 weeks now and in some ways it feels like hours and in other ways it feels so much longer. Funny how life can be like that. So this week my quotes are to honor him. Enjoy and I’ll see you next Friday with some new ones. …geri  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  When tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we are apart.

  Good morning, It is with a heavy heart that I come to you this Friday. I am so very sad to share with the news that my husband Joe passed on this week. He fought such a hard fight for the past two years and I know in my heart that he is in a much better place. He is once again a whole and healthy person, full of life and energy. I will miss him beyond words, but for him I am glad it is over.  I will be a bit MIA for the next few weeks. Not putting a definite timetable on it, I just don’t know how long I will need to catch my breath. So enjoy this weeks selection of quotes and in a few weeks I will be back.  Until then, happy Easter! …geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned s...

     Happy Friday! And Happy (belated) St Patty’s Day! Did you get some green beer yesterday? Or maybe some beer in a green cup??? :)    Whatever you did to celebrate St. Patty’s Day I hope it was wonderful!   I celebrated by being outside. WOW, yesterday was beautiful. I moved my office to the deck and worked out there, watching basketball of course!! And they say another beautiful day is in store for us again today. Although a bit breezy… man it sure was blustery overnight!  My wish for you this Friday is that your bracket may not bust by Sunday!
