TGIF, Etc.

Can you believe it’s July, already?

My fingers are crossed that many of you will be having a long weekend – since the 4th falls on a Sunday, this year. 🙂

Sir Beads is on vacation next week, and I’ve promised to take take the week off with him. We’ll be doing some much needed home repairs and spending time with my parents, who will soon be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary! We’ll also try to work in a day trip or two.

But, I’ll be back here one week from Monday (on July 12th), and I hope you’ll join me then!

I‘ll miss you, Kids! I appreciate your warmth and sweet comments more than words can say!

Sending many hugs and my warmest wishes for you to find a little time to relax and have some fun this weekend. 😀

See ya on the 12th!


Short But Sweet

Vacation is over! 🙁

Well, for now anyway. But it was fun.

Some of you may remember that this was a one-week “staycation”. We stayed home and enjoyed the fact that our calendar was pretty clear.calendar

We had a couple of nice meals out.

We were able to cross a few things off of the endless “to do” list.

We spent some quality time with family.

And we had a lovely day-trip. I have some good photos from that day and will blog about it soon!

So, now we feel refreshed and recharged! 🙂

It was a great week – just way too short!

I’m sure you know exactly what I mean . . .


Friday Favorites – Getaway

After a very busy week, I’m longing for a vacation. I don’t have anything planned, but this certainly looks like the perfect place for a little rest and relaxation!

Hope your weekend seems like a mini vacation! 🙂

See you Monday with the new questions!
