    Happy Friday and Happy Valentine’s Day!  I hope this finds you having a lovely Friday.  Rather wet again for us, and I am not sure if it is easier or harder to take after those beautiful spring days we had earlier in the week. Oh my did I log some miles!! It was stunning :)     I am officially ready for SPRING! It is a 3 day weekend for many. Are you off Monday? Do you have any big plans for Valentine’s Day or the long weekend? I hope whatever you do it is splendid. No real plans on our end, but my husband's birthday is Monday so I am sure we will at the very least toast to that. Happy Birthday honey!!  Enjoy the quotes and I will see you next Friday with some new ones. Until then, hug the ones you love – it is Valentine’s day after all :) …geri  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

  Happy last Friday in January!    And isn’t it crazy that the first month of the year is almost over, not sure where it has gone.  I guess time flies when you are having fun :)   I hope your first month of the year has been a good one. Do you have any big plans for the weekend?   I need to get some desk work done for a meeting next week, but I should find some movie watching, book reading time as well.   I hope whatever you do you have a fantastic weekend.  Enjoy the quotes and I’ll see you next month!! …geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  A word to the wise ain’t necessary, it’s the stupid ones who need the advice.  ~Bill Cosby  Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer, but wish we didn’t.  ~Erica J...

  Happy Friday! I hope your morning is going well.  Over an inch of rain again yesterday for us. Sure not the dry winter that we were promised!! And while I feel like we might float away the eastern ½ of the US is bracing for winter weather. I hope you are not flying this weekend, tons of flights already cancelled and they say the ripple effect will be felt all over for days. Sounds like a good reason to stay home to me. But then that is my fav so it doesn’t take much to think staying home in my pj’s is the best.  And if you live in the path of the storm, stay safe! Enjoy the quotes and I’ll see you next Friday with some new ones. Until then… HAPPY FRIDAY! …geri  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In the end, it is important to remember...

  Happy Friday! Yep, I am here with some more quotes, thus it must be Friday J   I hope that your day is starting just swell. Do you have any plans for the 3-day weekend? Mine will be a bit of work, but mostly play… time with friends and family, some football watching (GO HAWKS!), a walk or two… should be perfect.

  Happy 2016! I hope that the New Year is starting off just peachy! We are finally drying out and having some SUN, so I am a happy girl. December was the 2nd wettest December of all time. And after an amazing summer with tons of sunshine, we finished the year 8 inches over normal in the rain fall department. Good thing we had a dry summer or we really would have floated away! Enjoy the quotes and I’ll see you next Friday with some new ones. Until then have a great weekend. I’ll be rooting for my HAWKS!  …geri ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Negative and positives are most always based on perception and ten to rent space in our minds and largely dictate our reaction to situations. ~M.

   Happy Friday! I hope you are having just a lovely Friday and a fantastic holiday season.   Are you ready for the big day??? According to my handy dandy screen saver we have 6 days / 17 hours / 01 minutes / 30 seconds until the big day! Yep Jolly Old Saint Nick himself will be arriving before you know it… ready or not here he comes!!    And I am happy to say that I am mostly ready! Still the last minute foods to be bought or prepped, but beyond that the only thing left for me is to wrap. And as of yesterday all my packages have arrived so I can now commence with the paper and bows! I was certainly the queen of on-line shopping this year. Nothing like filling my Christmas mug with fresh brewed coffee (thanks to my husband keeping our cabinet full of freshly roasted beans!), putting a C...

We are just two weeks to Christmas, so maybe you will be shopping or decorating or doing what I love… baking :)   I hope whatever you do it is super fun and I hope the weather cooperates! WOW, what a WET week we have had around here! And they say more rain is on the way.
