Hello friends and Happy Friday … already! It’s Mid-winter break around here this weekend; the kids are out of school, traffic is light, and some folks are even traveling (to warmer places)! I snapped the photo at the top of this post on today’s morning walk. The cherry trees at the front of our neighborhood always bloom for President’s Day weekend, and those fluffy pink blossoms against the blue sky were a much-needed smile for me this morning. Here are a few other things making me smile right now:
Thinking about … Spring! I’m even looking forward to washing all my winter sweaters for the joy of packing them away.
Grateful for … good test results. Today marks three months since Marc’s prostate surgery; he had a PSA test this week and it was almost zero. He sees his surgeon next week and thinks he’ll be released to resume “normal” activity. not gonna lie, also grateful to be thinking about Marc playing golf again!
Inspired by … Kendra’s (The Lazy Genius) new polishes for Olive & June to get a bright red polish on my toes. I’ve ordered her signature “You’re Doing Great” for my fingers and look forward to flashing red-orange nails for weeks! (that red on my nails above is not Kendra’s red but clearly I’m already on board the “red nails” train.)
Nearly finished … Birkin! I snapped those photos yesterday afternoon after deciding the sleeve was gonna be fine. I’ve since finished that sleeve and started the next one (oh my aren’t we glad we only need two!)
Marc and I are headed to Sara’s in the morning to help install window treatments and a few other things, and I’ve got a Monday lunch planned with my mom, Karen, and Lydia (yay for the holiday!) In between I hope to finish Birkin and a few more books, and find a few more smiles.
What about you … what are you looking forward to this weekend?
