5 Facts for Friday {2-14-14}

Well, Happy Valentine’s Day, my friends! Hope you have had a wonderful day, with lots of opportunities to spend time with people you adore.

And now…

5 Facts for Friday:
1. Going to Accents Salon and Spa is wonderful: friendly, warm comforting. It’s like Steel Magnolias without the diabetes.
2. Our pharmacy is offering a new medicine to aid digestion. It’s called (and I kid you not) “Smooth Move.”
3. I do not care for the “An Open Letter To…” trend online. It’s just not nice (and quite passive aggressive.)
4. Comfort food: Ham and Au Gratin potatoes. Yum.
5. In second grade, my mom helped me make potato print Valentines for my teachers, Miss Gemma and Miss Sanderell. Do you have a happy Valentine’s memory? Tell me!

Have a lovely Valentine’s Day, friends!

5 Facts for Friday {2-7-14}

No more jury duty…which means it’s been a great week to get back in the routine of real life. Hope you have had a great week, with plans for a wonderful, restful weekend, friends! And now…


5 Facts for Friday:
1. Luxury=getting a haircut (today! It’s been awhile…)
2. Iron sharpens iron. I’m thankful for people in my life who make me think, and who help me grow.
3. Heard while at jury duty: “I taught my stepson to drive when he was 12. It was no big deal. I mean, the worst thing that could have happened was that he ended up in the pond.” I don’t think I can add anything to that little nugget of wisdom.
4. “Anyone who says you can’t see a thought simply doesn’t know art.” (W. Reynolds)
5. OLYMPICS!!! What’s your favorite event?

See you next week!

Five Facts for Friday {1-31-14}


Oh, Friday…it is so good to see you after a very long, cold week at Jury Duty!

5 Facts for Friday:
1. Jury duty: A tiny bit of Law and Order and a whole lot of study hall.
2. If you happen to be called for jury duty, I hope you have friends like Kelly Montgomery Hoy, who will chauffeur you to the Justice Center, and Molly Priest Gebler who will bring you cake all the way from New York.
3. Texting and Twitter have rendered the scrolling school cancellations on TV practically obsolete.
4. Neil Barringham said, “The grass is always greener where you water it.”
5. Super Bowl! I’m mostly looking forward to chatting with my friends during the game…what’s your favorite Super Bowl-ish thing?

Tomorrow I’ll be teaching at the North Coast District Leadership Academy…maybe I will see you there!

Have a wonderful weekend~
