you know what?


sew buttons...that's what.

in other words - nonsense. it's the friday of a holiday weekend and it's time to be at least pretend happy. i declare that. it's tough sometimes for sure but ... today i

:: discovered some great music, playing it free
:: laughed at some funny twitters from my friends
:: watched a red-headed woodpecker make circles around a tree
:: dreamed of an exotic vacation
:: had a guy friend tell me that i'm beautiful
:: planned the perfect barbeque
:: and enjoyed my roses even though they are in final droop

now i'm going to go shower, get the groceries for monday and think of something else silly, funny and whimsical to do...just because it's may, spring and a holiday weekend.

  9. Enjoy some whimsy this weekend, indeed. It's beautiful out. The sun is shining. And a BBQ sounds perfect. I'm with Drollgirl and am curious to know what would make it perfect? I'm pretty simple, I think. A cold Blue Moon with a slice of orange, brats, and potatoe salad. With that, enjoy yourself. :)

  18. What I love to remind myself of is this: reading blogs is fun and it's free. I know you pay for the internet connection. But it's like a huge plethora of eye candy and reading as long as I want. That makes me happy.
