Oh Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Now I remember why I live in Florida.  Perfect day with 80 degrees temps. and not a cloud in the sky.  Much too pretty to be inside so we worked in the yard, planned our garden that we are planting March 1st and took in the sights of our own back yard.  

 Camellias - we have three bushes and they are all in bloom.
Tangerines - cannot get enough of them.  They are so sweet this year.

Here's  hoping your weather was as nice as ours.  Be blessed.

GNO and Such

Monday, February 14, 2011

Last night was GNO.  I think this is our 13th year of going to dinner once a month.  Over many years, additions and deletions from the group, and coming up with a new restaurant every month, we changed our venue, for this year anyway.  We are each taking a month and hosting the dinner.  I started off with February, celebrating Valentine's Day and Barb's birthday.  What a fun night we had in a relaxed atmosphere.  There were 10 ladies, 6 of which are from the original group.  Thank God for Girlfriends.

Fajitas, Friends and Fun

Friday, February 11, 2011

Well, last night was all I expected it to be and more.  A much needed bonding with my girls.  So happy we were all in one city for one night.  We caught up on each others lives, laughed, and wished the night could have lasted longer.  We all have a good habit of giving our stuff away.  When someone compliments the other on a piece of jewelry, belt, perfume, etc. - we usually just give it to them.  I'm still complimenting Chris on her Liberty of Lincoln Bike, she still hasn't gotten the hint.  Until next time here is a glimpse of the memories we made.

Seize the Moment

Thursday, February 10, 2011

So tonight I am having dinner with my dear girlfriends, the Red Hot Chili Peppers as we know each other.  We got our name by all working together at Chili's 25 years ago, most of us in college, before husbands, before kids, before life responsibilities.  We have been there for each other through boyfriends, weddings, births, funerals and all that life has handed us.  We all  live in different cities now, all have family responsiblities, job responsibilities, etc. but we always know we are just a phone call away. It's nights like tonight that make me so happy.  Looking forward to making more memories.  I love you girls. 
* Love the moment, and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.
* Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities.  Seize common occasions and make them great.
* Do it now, today will be yesterday, tomorrow.
* Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
* Well done is better than well said.
* If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it.
* Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you're right.
* If you risk nothing, then you risk everything.
* The only thing that will stop you from fulfilling yoru dreams is you.
* What would you do if you weren't afraid.

Proverbs 20:6
Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable? 

I'm so glad that I can say I have truly reliable friends.  Let's rock the mexican food tonight girls.

Rookie Blogger

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

Ok all of you experienced bloggers.  I'm a rookie.  No clue what I'm doing.  Still trying to figure out how it works.  So today I tried to replace my photos at the "header" of the blog and completely deleted every post I have.  Hmmmmm...... Anyway, I guess I'm starting over.  Any tips you experienced bloggers can send my way will be much appreciated.  Blessings to all of you ladies in Blog Land.
