Happy Friday!

I don't know about you but I NEED this weekend! Real bad too!

I need to do something, get out of the house and have a little ME time!!

I should make a list of what I want to do or where I want to go. I want to hit this one thrift store and it's not that far from the cemetery. Ok, I know that sounds weird but in my crazy world, it makes perfect sense. I want to stop at the cemetery because Sunday is my friend's one year anniversary. She passed away very suddenly last August 2nd. I want to take some flowers up since I haven't been there since the actual funeral. Then I figure, I'll need a little pick me up so the thrift store and the craft store could do just that. See, I'm always thinking!

Then I want to be selfish and take some time to take pictures. I really want to find a few places to just go and take some pictures and play with my camera. Usually my husband will say let's go here or there and you can take some pics. Then when we are there, he'll say here let me see the camera. Ok, I know this might sound mean but IT'S MINE! I want to play with it. Do I ask to shoot your bow? Do I ask to check out your rifle? You have your toys and I have mine. I'm 44, I don't have to share!

I really want to take some pics of the kids too because I found my photo paper and I want to print out some 5x7s for this one wall in my kitchen. I want to get some black frames and hang the three down in a row on this one part of the kitchen wall. In my head it looks great and when I'm done, I'll take a picture to show! I also want to put some of my pics that I've taken onto my digital frame that I haven't even opened yet.

I also need to get my mother a birthday gift and her birthday was yesterday. It's ok, she's not around to give it to anyway since she's away. So I'll find something over the weekend. She didn't seem too thrilled with that digital keychain I gave her for mothers day so I might just go with a gift card and call it a day.

I also need to get the hubby to bring home these boxes of books he keeps telling me I have at his shop. It's killing me not knowing what books are in these boxes! We must have put them down there about 5 or 6 yrs. ago when we were moving. I'm pretty sure they aren't anything really good, probably a lot of my old books that I've read and was saving for my "library". If they aren't anything I want then I'm going to donate them to the hospital here for the patients. But I have to admit, the curiosity is killing me!

And of course I want to sit on my deck and read. Now, I've said that out loud so that pretty much secures the fact that we will be having rain in the area! Heaven forbid I get a Friday night on the deck without rain! The book I'm reading is really getting good and I want to dive into it and try to stay awake long enough to finish more than 2 pages!

Other than that, I just want to relax! I just want to breath without feeling rushed and tied into a schedule!

What can I say? I'm a dreamer!


  1. I have not needed a weekend so badly in a LONG time. This night has been non-stop busy and I am exhausted!
    I want to go thrift shopping with you! Have a good time.

  2. Sounds like a great weekend.
    It's nice that you're going to "visit" your friend.
