little bit & i were SO in the mood for some bacon ooh la la for lunch!
do you love these too or what?
we do a tiny thing differently... instead of mayo we use miracle whip... tangy YUM!

after i uploaded this pic i noticed the bite out of the bacon... just COULDN'T wait could i... ha!  


i changed my profile pic over at facebook... and everybody was SO nice!
all i know... they sure put a skip in my step today!
for a gal to hear ONCE that "she looks good"... it is gut level "FEEL GOOD"!
thank you SO much... really! 

now... for something funny...
look at the front of my hair where the part is... see that hair sticking out kind of funny...
that would be one of MANY grays i have on my head!
why is it that they grow so wacky woo anyway?

i am one happy... gray haired growing mama that it's fRidAy...
sure hope your weekend is filled with a BIG bowl of goodness... grab a BIG spoon & ENJOY!

little miss flying kitty and i are getting our manes tamed today!
SO excited... i can hardly stand it... my hair will actually have some shape again!

the only thing... i am going straight from the gym... antiperspirant... deodorant... don't fail me now!
it was the ONLY appt. i could get... and a desperate woman who needs a hair cut
will do ANYTHING to get in... am i right or what!

what is it though about once they have washed your hair... they take you over...
as water drips down your back... sit you down right in front of the mirror...
"AAGHHHH"... i get a glimpse of myself IN THE MIRROR! 
hair sticking out everywhere ... garish shiny smock...
water dripping all over the place... 
something about that little head sticking out of there... NOT attractive! 

so you better believe it... i put on makeup today!
a dab here... a dab there... 
i might be going to the gym but i'll be darned
if i have to see ALL THAT in the mirror AND no makeup... no way!  
i'll at least look like a wet poodle... that has pretty lashes! 

so... here's to thursday... woo hoo...
we're over the hump & rolling down the other side... the weekend is oh so close!  
gotta really focus on that extra "umph" today!


friends. . .

we are free to stand TALL...
because they are right there... to lean on AND to catch us if we fall

we are ACCEPTED...
in spite of our weathered & sometimes thorny surface

we are BETTER...
because once they have rooted within us we are never the same

we are STRONGER...
because we sure don't bend easily when someone's right there supporting us

we are SATISFIED...
because when our hearts are thirsty they are the rain that pours from the sky

we are BLESSED...
because with them... we run faster... laugh harder...
and there is no tree we cannot climb!
