Fabulous Friday

The day is starting in fabulous splendor.  Appreciating the beauty of nature ... another day to be in awe with.   The coloring is magnificent, the golden sun streaming through the rows and rows of apple trees against the so blue sky, my little feathered friends chirping away, weather prediction of a high of 82 and abundant sunshine.  Makes me think of a summer day as a child, sitting on the porch having breakfast.  Its a day I haven't thought of in a long time but its a fond memory.  I couldn't have been more then 9 or 10 and the feelings of love were all around.  The plans for play were being made and just as soon as breakfast was done out the door to the others and we ran and played all day long, as we would each day over the summer months.  I don't see many children out "playing" too much any more.  I'm not sure if I'm too busy to notice or does technology keep them in?   

Much ado, several birthdays to celebrate ... son, mother-in-law, husband over the next few days.  It's been quite a busy week with not much time for crocheting or cross stitch.  Hopefully that will change next week.  Miss my needles and hooks.

Have a lovely day and weekend.  Morning coffee calling ... need to answer!

Blessings to your day.


  1. Happy Birthday wishes to everyone - enjoy your weekend. :)

  2. I don't think many kids play outside like we used to do. I think about those days sometimes too. Kids don't know what they are missing do they? xoxo

  3. Have a great weekend with the birthday people..

  4. I can almost feel the sunlight and the breeze....I'll bring the tea and cookies and we'll sit on the porch and craft away the day....I really do need to teach you how to knit. :)

    Happy 4th of July and blessings to you and yours! :)

  5. I'm with Stitchy... let's just craft away on the porch with some nice herbal tea. And hope the weather doesn't change...

    Hope you have a marvelous holiday weekend!

  6. Güzel bir hafta sonu diliyorum sana..sevgiler.

  7. I will have to stop by and have a coffe with you Glor.:))
    The sun is shining here at the moment :))
    Blessings to you all :))

  8. Happy Birthday to all, Gloria! :) Your porch memory brought back memories of my Aunt Twila. She lived right up the road from us and I walked there pretty much daily while I was growing up. She had a small porch with a porch swing, and I sat there with her more times than I can count. She used to make a tasty "tea". It was basically cold water, crushed ice, a bit of sugar and peppermint flavoring. So refreshing on a hot summer day. She's been gone 26 yrs. and I miss her as much today as I did back then. She was so very special to me.

    Blessings to you this 4th of July weekend...and again...please tell your son thank you for his service, from me.

    Rick and I are going to W. Va. for a couple of days...pretty much to check out the New River Gorge area and enjoy the outdoors. I'm sure there will be plenty of pics that show up on my blog eventually. ;)
