I had a bit of a rough start to the day as a family friend (my father's best friend) died through the night. He had lung cancer, and we all knew it was happening, but there is expecting and there is happening. So today I have been looking hard for the good things today.

1. DH got home last night and we did not have to spend it apart, despite the snow!
2. I got an invitation which I joyfully accepted to go somewhere I have wanted to go.
3. I got not one, but two bottles of perfume thanks to duty free shopping last night.
4. We are going out to night and eting seafood
5. We think we might finally buy a camcorder this weekend!

In no particular order:

1. For some reason breakfast was especially tasty this morning. Homemade bread toasted with cinnamon sugar and a cup of blackberry sage tea.

2. Dinner is already assembled and ready to go into the oven. Yeah!

3. All my Friday chores went like lightning and I was done way before I'd expected.

4. Buck and I just made a contact with a local newspaper that might pick up both our columns. Paying more than our normal rate, too.

5. I have a new knitting toy to play with and feel like a child in a toy store.

Coco Dolly is home for the weekend

Two catered events went off without a hitch

Mark (my son) actually vacuumed downstairs before he went to work

Someone said something nice to me today

I can see the steam rising from the hot tub

Hope everyone else is having a nice evening, too!
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Taught a class in the morning

Had some alone time with some tea and a book. Yahoo!

Went to the park with dh and the kids. That was fun.

Got a little time with my husband minus kids

Last but not least, the sun is shining!

lulu andretti?

hey, i think you just came up with the "saturday six"!

be careful: wine, camcorders, and free time are tools of the devil.
