happy friday

we have had the most beautiful weather around here this week. and wouldn't you know it... it started up the week i was back at work. no worries, though. i'd rather have nice weather and a job than nice weather and no job.

i'm off tomorrow, though. my best friend and her sis are coming over for our second installment of "get rid of all this junk!" days. i'm sort of a pack rat, and they are good at telling me what i need not hold on to {since they don't have any emotional attachments to these things}. it's actually kind of fun {and hilarious at times}. in the most fun and non-snooty way, they make fun of me for some of the things i've been holding on to, or for getting them in the first place. you know... the kind of things you look at and think, "what was i thinking?!?" we have many laughs during this organizational party, and it's a win/win for them, because they usually go home with something nice from the "get-rid-of" pile. {*wink*}

seriously, it is very thoughtful of them to do this. i called on them, because i know how good they are at organizing/streamlining and "keeping it real". i started out trying to get ready for a garage sale, but now that i am working again and it is getting late in the year, i might have to try to sell much of it in a consignment shop or something else. plan b. i don't know.

anyway, i hope you are all doing well and are ready for the weekend! hoping you get some "kiss the grass" time in while it's here. have a great friday!

Love the photo and quote today. Have a great day off and a successful "get rid if all this junk!" day, I should hold one of those. (Actually it would need be a week long!)

Lovely! Enjoy the de-cluttering . . . we did whatever the reverse of Spring Cleaning is last week. Well, not the reverse. That'd be a mess! Fall Nesting.

Hi there, we also have the most wonderful weather, it's still so hot. I love the changing of colors in the fall specially when it's a sunny day.

Hope you've worked out all you stuff...what a job...And garage sales we don't have over here. I think is funny.
Happy sunday.
