Gratitude Friday...long, sunshiny weekends!

After a couple weeks of being emotionally drained, plus this past week have been physically exhausted from lack of sleep and a stupid cold...I finally got a decent night's sleep and woke up this morning wonderfully refreshed and feeling my amazing self again!!

One of the first things I did was check the weather forecast and wooohooo, it is looking good! So I am grateful for the can't-be-beat combination of glorious sunshine and warm temps and a long weekend!!!


It's Boler-time! (uh oh...I have that Hammer-time song stuck in my head now...sorry!)


What I like about camping is you can get really dirty. Either you're all by yourself, so no one else sees you, or everyone you're with is just as dirty as you are, so nobody cares.
~ Anonymous former Boy Scout, quoted in Highs! Over 150 Ways to Feel Really, Really Good Without Alcohol or Other Drugs by Alex J. Packer

Can't wait to get off work this afternoon so I can head on down to the campground. No idea who else will be there tonight...might be just me, or me and Dave, or maybe Valerie and Mark and our collective offspring will all be there too - who knows?! Not sure what's going on tomorrow either. I'd mentioned to Valerie that we should do something, but that's as far as our plans went...the weekend will unfold as it will and no doubt will be wonderful whatever we do! Dave & I and Mark & Val are planning to spend Sunday night at the camper, just the four of us, so looking forward to that. Love having the girls around, but sometimes nice to have time to ourselves. :)

Happy Friday Everyone!!!

As always, each Friday I invite you to click over to Diana Strinati Baur's blog and check out the other Gratitude Friday Club blogs...

Sounds like a wonderfully relaxing, kick-back weekend. Good for the soul and mind! Hope you enjoy, m

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Anne, Happy Friday (and Weekend) to you too! Have some fun tonight. Now I'm thinking of that Wang Chung song. :)



Hi Anne

I looked up your entries on your blog -- been a quiet fan for some time now.. The one thing I kept thinking was: This woman ought to be a minister. Your blog is a place of peace and serenity. And for me, Gratitude Friday means hearing what you have to say. It's the bast place to be after a tough week.

Wishing you and your family all the best.


How 'bout One Fine Morning by Lighthouse? Nearly as old as me.


menehune, my soul and mind already feel lighter and brighter, and I'm only halfway through the weekend. Definitely needed this time to recharge.

Thanks Kathy, hope you are enjoying your weekend too. I think all of Nova Scotia is outside this weekend, basking in the sun and spreading our wings after being cooped up over the winter!

Darren, thank you so much. It is always an honour to know my blog has touched someone. I do feel called to ministry, so hopefully that's where the Spirit will lead me over the next few years. I just agreed to preach at my church one Sunday in July, so that is another big step for me!

Love the Lighthouse song. Must go see if it's on youtube (as I'm sure it will be -everything else is!)
