 Weekends are a bit like rainbows; they look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.

Friday has finally arrived. Two weeks to go. After today, only 9 days to go.  We'll be off on July 4th.   We've a rainy weekend in store for us.  I At first, I was disappointed with the weather report.  I had plans for this weekend.  I'd planned on taking a trip to the bank in my old neighborhood where I have my estate account and afterwards was hoping to head onto my favorite store.  I'm still searching for those capris that I want. When I want something, I don't give up easily, and as I've grown older and more money conscious, I don't buy just anything just to say I bought.  I want this one style and nothing else will do.  

Fortunately, soon I won't have to worry about trying to cram everything into one day. I'll no longer have to face the disappointment of bad weather spoiling my plans.  I'll be able to get up in the morning and say "I feel like going back to bad for awhile," or "today I think I'll take a walk to the park...or go to the beach, etc."  And, as I told hubby last night, when the snow begins to fall this winter, I won't have to call in with some excuse to take off. I know.  I'm getting ahead of myself here. First, let's get through the long hot summer that stretches ahead of us.

So, I guess this weekend I'll lounge about and do some reading.  I need the rest.  A work, the state has decided to do a  surprise audit so it has been a stressful time.  Everyone is on edge.  My charts are fairly-up-to date, but there's always a little something that needs to be touched up. They couldn't wait until I was gone to do this, could they?  They just had to do it now, didn't they? It's kind of funny when you think of it.  They're not due until November when our license is up for renewal, but look when they choose to come.  I guess I needed one last audit.

Well, not much else I can think of to say except I hope you all have a wonderful relaxing weekend. See you all on Monday.

There may be difficulty at the moment, but I will not lose the Virtue that
I possess. It is when the ice and snow are on them that we see the strength
of the cypress and the pine. I am grateful for this trouble around me,
because it gives me an opportunity to realize how fortunate I am.



  1. I am so happy for you, Mary, my friend; I can hardly wait until I can retire.

  2. Hi dear friend....just stopping in to see how you are....sounds like all is well with you. Have a wonderful weekend.



  3. 9 days, keep that mantra. Then next week even less! Not long now! I am happy for you!
