Let's Plan Our Escape!

Friday is here, and I am glad for that. I'm not going to think about how fast the weekend might pass, or what I might not get done this weekend, but rather think positively about the limitless possibilities that the hours ahead of me might hold. I'll still try to think of some great things I'd like to do before the weekend is through, and save my negative rants for Monday (where they belong).

Fridays are for dreaming, and reminiscing, and fantasizing of things that make your spirit soar... so let's plan our [mental] escape, and start packing now. Take a hot air balloon ride over the fantasy place of your choice, or hope on a riverboat and see where it takes you. Today is all about you (me, you know--US!) So let's just milk it for all it's worth and enjoy!

The weather is fine, and even though we're expecting rain tomorrow it would be a great day to take a long walk down by the river. Or if I had my way, and had the time and the ability to I think I would probably find a nice calm place in the middle of a beautiful field, with the horses and birds and flowers and set-up a canvas and paint until sunset...



Paint yourselves a masterpiece of a weekend!

Love,
AuntJackie

One time I escaped from Memphis -- with a whole pack, like carloads of local crazies -- to the quartz mines in Arkansas.

That was awesome dude.

Another time I made it only as far as the Motel 6 in West Memphis.

It wasn't as awesome dude. But at least it was west of the Mississippi. Yeah. So I hung out there until check out time & pretended I was going places.

Usually I couldn't even make it all even that far though. Fortunately I have a lifelong infatuation with the Mississippi River.

And since we don't got none of them up here to Vermont I usually could manage, times I spent in Memphis, to keep myself entertained.

Oh, plus red wine. The river works much better with a bottle of red wine.

Best,

I loooooooooooooove horses. And long walks by any body of water. And the half sunny, half rainy days.

I like your positive weekend outlook. I think I might copy your style.

My new friend

To have peace in your heart you must circle yourself with love. Let go of the negative. You are a reflection of your life...

When you toss a stone in water you will see a ripple that grows and grows across the water...
