i wanted an amazing title but my mind went blank
i sit at a proverbial road - that one with a fork (no spoon, no knife) in it. and though i feel a tug one way, responsibility has been drilled in my head . . . a lot to ponder over the weekend.
i got the book "the happiness project" and have read the reviews. though the reviews are mixed, i wanted to give it a try because the author took a year long approach to it. i like that - that true changes happen over time, not just in an instant. or, for me anyway. it's like my 365 - though i'm in the third month of it, i don't feel like it's a 'habit' yet. i still struggle with making time for it.
my week has been killer - running from meeting to meeting to meeting. but tomorrow night is bluegrass and burgers at my friend, angela's restaurant. i love hanging out there - it's like we're part of the family. after that i suspect i will be cleaning a bit, changing out my bed and hopefully seeing alice (finally).

that sounds like a fun time tomorrow night. this week has been weird because i have felt like the day was the day before (today I thought it was wednesday all day). i know you're busy. i can tell. and i'm not entirely sure where happiness lies, but i hope that the book and the time with your friend helps you get some relax time.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned. After you survive tomorrow that is. Take care. Happy weekend.ReplyDelete
Bluegrass and Fries, I would have called it :)ReplyDelete
I hope you have a great weekend! It sounds like you deserve it. Enjoy the time with your friends!ReplyDelete
beautiful shot and tomorrow night sounds like the perfect start to a good weekend...ReplyDelete
bluegrass and burgers? sounds like the perfect way to kick off the weekend. i'd like to hear what you think about the book.ReplyDelete
I looooove bluegrass. What a great way to wind down and begin the weekend. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
bluegrass and burgers w/ blue cheese would be even better! wonderful wknd to you, Char!ReplyDelete
bluegrass and burgers,... wish I could be there! Relax and enjoy the evening. Somehow all the forks seem to work out.ReplyDelete
your weekend sounds like a perfectly wrapped gift....and well deserved after such a hectic week.....ReplyDelete
I hope it's the best and that the sun shines brilliantly for you !!
The bluegrass and burgers seem like it'll make the whole week worth it ... Enjoy your weekend :)ReplyDelete
we love bluegrass. my husband plays the large bass fiddle in a bluegrass band and i am his groupie! have a great time at your friends place, sounds like you could use it.ReplyDelete
I've stumbled upon another blog that grabs my attention. Actually I liked all of them. I'll be back for more, meanwhile enjoy your evening of bluegrass and burgers.ReplyDelete
This week has been a long one for me too...I feel like I'm behind in so many things especially catching up on friend bloggers...sorry...So hopefully the time change on Sunday will awaken new tides and projects will move faster.ReplyDelete
HUGS dear friend.
i just ordered this book. i am more interested now. : )ReplyDelete
yum @ the bluegrass and burgers.
Oooh.. can't wait to hear how you like it.ReplyDelete
have a very special evening, I will be curious how you like the book ... that daffodil is just amazing...how about "yellow submarine"..:)ReplyDelete
I kept thinking yesterday was Friday all day! So yes my week has been thrown off a bit! I always hated meetings...so dreadfully boring!! But I could go for the bluegrass and burgers...sounds fun fun! Enjoy your weekend my friend!ReplyDelete
...I've been interested in that book after reading about it in the NYT...and have been looking at her blog http://www.happiness-project.com/happiness_project/...will be interested to hear what you think of the book...ReplyDelete
I've been feeling unsettled this week too...so much to do with my sister's estate that I'm procrasinating on...and I do want to get going on some new direction in my own life...I guess the quest IS life?
Daffodils make the most amazing pictures, don't they? They're just so perfect. Too bad life isn't as perfect and easy as a daffodil. You'll take the road that's right for you.ReplyDelete
The photo of the daffodil says more than a title would. From the picture I surmise your post is about the need to step back and zone. The background is fuzzy and out of focus...sort of like your dilemma about the fork in the road. The flower says how can you be unhappy when nature provides you with such simple beauty...yep I'd say your photo says it all.ReplyDelete
I couldn't wait for the week to end. And today couldn't wait to come home, put on my pajamas and climb into bed with some vicks vapo-rub. Seems I caught a nasty cold at school this week.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful night tomorrow. I'll be thinking of you!
I hope your weekend pondering brings you happiness, wherever it leads you.ReplyDelete
Love that photo! perfect depth of field...and so weird, I just ordered The Happiness Project about 2 hours ago...I keep hearing how good it is. I suppose it can't hurt anyway.ReplyDelete
i totally hear what you're saying about it being a long week. the past several have been that way for me. some changes, some irritations, and a mind that keeps drifting in million directions...i'm just hoping that the renewal of spring will bring back some balance. the weather has been beautiful for the past few days. so refreshing.ReplyDelete
oh...i hope alice was good! it's on my to-do list!
Hehe...I love what you did with the title.ReplyDelete
This book looks interesting..a bit of self help and yet not too much. I haven't seen this one before...might have to go check it out at the bookstore today!
I hope you are having a lovely weekend. :)
Yes it has been that kind of week. I think it's nice that you can take a break and have fun at your friend's restaurant.ReplyDelete
i just bought that book too. just started reading it.ReplyDelete
