Friday, March 12


Who said you can't get Lilac's in Texas?  These were at the grocery store today, I bought 2 blooms. One for me & 1 for a friend.  They smell like heaven!
Another week is almost gone, I'm looking forward to a weekend filled with fun & games, shopping & chores.
But right now I have some new books to read,

and my faithful companion by my side.
The kids are asleep.  I can just snuggle up & get lost in my little fantasy world.  At least for 2 hours.  Sweet!
Have an awesome weekend friends!

Your lilacs look so pretty in that vase, and how sweet that you both some for a friend. You are just the sweetest Lisa.
Glad you have a few hours to pour over that wonderful book and snuggle with your pooch.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Sounds like Heaven!!! The lilacs are beautiful.

Crystal said...

Oh I can just imagine the lilac fragrance now. I can't wait for spring :)
Your decor books just wonderful. I will have to look them up and read them myself. You will have to give a review on them.
It is raining here (at least it is not SNOW). So it would be a great day to sit, snuggle with pooch and read/look through a great book.

Have a wonderful weekend.
