Happy Weekend Y’all!

We are on a working vacation at our yellow house.clovis flowers 031

This week has been tough.

I feel a bit lost and out of sorts. I think you will see why.

A friend, merely thirty six years old, died early Monday. When my phone beeped at five thirty in the morning , I knew it could not be good.

She had only been married for two years. Her father quietly wept through out the entire service.

Joe was in a car accident this evening. He is fine. Mad. But fine.

This is the second time in a few months he has been stopped at a light and rear ended. His car insurance will increase despite the fact he was not at fault. That is nuts.

In spite of it all we are blessed and know it.

Yard sales with Joe in the morning! Yay!

CC, finally can attend True North Church with us on Sunday.

We are thankful for rain and with it a break from the terrible heat we have been having here in the South.

  1. Hi Olive.
    I'm so sorry about your friend.
    What a terrible, terrible loss
    and at such a young age, too.
    Glad Joe is okay!
    Sounds like you have a fun
    weekend planned.
    My girl and I fly back home,
    tomorrow. Just when we'd
    gotten more used to the heat!

    PS: She had a great experience!

  2. Very sorry to read about your friend's death. It is never easy but being so young makes it so much harder.
    Glad Joe is OK....makes you wonder if people are texting and driving and not paying attention to the car ahead of them.
    Have fun at the yard sales. Look forward to seeing what goodies you find.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear of your friend's death. So young, so tragic.

    I'm glad, on the other hand, to hear Joe is okay. Have a good, relaxing weekend.


  4. What sad news, oh how I hate to hear about a young person leaving, I'm so sorry. Glad your husband is OK. I was rear-ended a year and a half ago, and I still cringe at each stoplight and stare into the rear view mirror. Have a great weekend, dear heart!

  5. OMG ~ that's sure a mouthful!!! HaNG In There Olive... and thank you for your caring "Nurse Input" - much appreciated!!! Jeanine, ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!
