Friday Already?







I remember years ago, sitting in Physics Class in January, (a class I had no business being in, by the way) flipping open my Trapper Keeper, thinking about how slowly the next few months would drag on. And they did. Now it seems the weeks and months pass as quickly as a VHS tape on Fast Forward. It's Sunday afternoon, then suddenly, Friday morning. My dear dad used to say, The older you get; the faster it goes!"

This past week was filled with the mundane yet simply lovely moments of picking up groceries, eating special bakery cupcakes, watching snow falling and winds blowing, schooling, bill paying and cooking. We also decided on the menu for our SuperBowl Sunday festivities, which usually involves takeout. This year, a unanimous vote decided homemade stromboli. And I am glad. 

I hope your weekend is filled with fun, food, and family, my friends.
See you Monday!

  2. I once sat in a physics class that I also had no business being in either. Those cupcakes are cute! And the snow picture is very pretty. Your super bowl meals sounds great, still no idea about what we'll do for it. Something simple most likely. Happy weekend!

  5. My mom always said the same thing, too. She also said life moves faster when you have kids, and oh my goodness that's true. If I lived at your house I don't think I'd ever leave that porch. Such a beautiful view! Hope you and the family have a great weekend!!!!

  10. Your weather sounds like what we have in our forecast beginning today and hanging around for the good part of next week. Oh, my days go by in a flurry. I try to slow them down, but it just doesn't happen. Enjoy your weekend.

  16. What a beautiful white wonderland around your neck of the woods. I love the snow! That chocolate dessert is so cute, and looks delicious. Sometimes our mundane moments are the most wonderful of all. Thank you for being such a grateful person, Billie Jo. It is always so nice to hear and see your photos of times that are appreciated.
