Friday Favorites

Today, I have a quote that I really should print and stick on my refrigerator! πŸ™‚

β€œThe time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”

~Bertrand Russell


Sometimes at the end of a long day, when I haven’t finished as much as I’d planned, instead of feeling down about it, I need to remind myself – it’s ok.

Getting sidetracked can be a good thing – if you’re having fun in the process!

So Kids, have a great weekend, and don’t be afraid to waste a little time. πŸ˜‰

See you Monday!



Friday Favorites

After yesterday’s group rant, I thought we could use a little serenity . . .

OK everybody…

Take a nice deep cleansing breath….

Hold it for a few seconds…..

Slowly blow it out…….


Now we’re all relaxed, right?

Yay!! πŸ˜€


This week’s Friday Favorites is in keeping with the de-stress theme. I have a beautiful, and very calming, vintage illustration; and a quote that will help to banish those minor annoyances that can crop up from time to time. πŸ™‚

“Give your stress wings, and let it fly away.”


Hugs and warmest wishes for a wonderful weekend!! πŸ˜€

hearts-border31 For this week’s Friday Favorites, I have two little treats for you! I found a whimsical illustration and an amusing quote. πŸ™‚

This vintage print depicts Thumbelina of fairytale fame.
She is gliding across the pond on a lily pad that’s powered by a snowy white butterfly!


Doesn’t the scene have a lovely summertime quality? I see some fish but I wonder if just under the surface of the water, we might discover one of Carol’s frogs!

Next the quote . . .

“I have noticed that the people who are late are often so much jollier than the people who have to wait for them.” ~E. V. Lucas

Have a fun-filled weekend!

See you Monday with new questions! πŸ˜€


Friday Favorites

hearts-border31This week’s “Friday Favorites” features a lovely illustration from a vintage book for children. I’ve added a quotation to go along with it! To me, the message suggests that we try to put ourselves in the shoes of others. πŸ™‚


“Nothing that grieves us can be called little: by the eternal laws of proportion – a child’s loss of a doll and a king’s loss of a crown are events of the same size.” Mark Twain

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!

See you Monday for the new questions. πŸ™‚
