Today i'm thinking of...

Last August, when I went to see my dear friend Vic and the wonderful weather we had that week. Not to hot. Not to cold. No rain, just perfect weather and lots of fun antiqueing, meeting friends (like in the picture below of Shawn, Vic and myself) and relaxing for the entire week with a good friend, her family and beloved dogs. Not that I need to relax right now, I'm pretty caught up from the overload of the holidays and all the work I needed to do....to the point of feeling lazy - but that's another story! It's the weather that I am longing for. The warm, sunny days with green grass and beautiful flowers, butterflies and gardening. I can't remember a winter that I dreaded as I did this one....even when we got the first snow I wasn't ready for winter, in fact I prayed for it to be our ONLY snowfall of the year. In the fall my Mother and I had started walking together a couple of times a week, I was doing some work outside to my gardens....and just enjoying see our yard sans snow and temps below 10 degrees! Alas, that hasn't happened, but a girl can dream right?

Speaking of being lazy, I need to get some creative motivation. it's not that I'm not feeling creative, it's more that I'm obsessed with reading. Reading books about Queen Elizabeth, the daugher of Henry VIII. I'm obsessed with them. I love that period of time, maybe I was re-incarnated from that time??

I went shopping today for baby things for a friend...oh my gosh Target has some of the most adorable things out there...NO, I don't want another baby - but I just love looking at baby clothes!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you all have a great weekend. We're off for a family date to see a movie and have Thai food for dinner! Ta Ta for Now!
