♥ ~ T. G. I. F ~ ♥


First let me say ~Thank You~ to all of you for your thoughts, posts and warm wishes regarding my mother-in-law, Jean. Both Dan and I are extremely grateful for your kindness. I did read him all the comments/posts as well as the poem and well...we were both just boo-hoo'in. But thank you all the same. It really means so much ♥

Second ~ Is this picture not to die for? It seriously looks like my Grandma's town in Springfield Ohio. Not kidding! There's a little bridge and beautiful houses like that - they usually have snow around this time of year - I just LOVE going up there! Granted, the town has been "built up" quite a bit over the years - lots of businesses and cookie-cutter houses, but if you know where to go --- its just quaint! ♥ Plus, its where we always went for Christmas; my childhood is filled with memories and scenes like the one above. So lovely!

Third ~ Its Friday!!! Whooooooottt!! OTT! After the week I've had, I'm SO happy its Friday. Its been very bittersweet and emotionally draining, yet also very happy and exciting. A plethora of emotions ~ a true rollercoaster. But, hey...its the weekend - time for relaxing and some Christmas shopping. I hope to do some of the shopping online and not have to go to the stores and fight the crowds. If my dear !MOTHER! would get back to me about what to get her and my Dad. Geez Mom! C'mon! Work with me here... :o)

Shameless Plug of the Day:

Love & Peace,

First- You are very welcome and I am glad to hear that more comfortable emotions are picking up. We love you :-)

Second- THAT PICTURE TOTALLY IS TO DIE FOR! OMG! I can only dream of a place like that. How blessed to spend Christmas in such a lovely, peaceful place. *sigh* One of these days I will have a white Christmas ;-)

Third- I am in the same boat as you...I am STILL waiting on a coupel of people to tell me what it is they would like. If I get one more "oh, I'm still thinking about it" I am going to give them brains for Christmas since they obviously have lost theirs! LOL!!!! I'm trying to give...not be tortured!

And, finally, THANK YOU!!! Oh the shameless plug is absolutely charming and wonderful. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!

Weekends can never come soon enough. Love the pic, it reminds me of a little town I like to go to on vacation in Vermont. I love it, I'm just not a big town boy, I remember growing up without the door to our house ever being locked, walking down to the local store for a Popsicle and cherry soda. Isn't it amazing the thoughts and memories a picture can bring up. Anyway, hope you have a good weekend.
