It’s Good Friday!

Happy Good Friday or if you don’t recognize Good Friday, it’s good today is Friday so be happy!

Good Friday

This week is coming to an end but this weekend is going to be full of festivities and family time.  My heart couldn’t be happier but before we get to it I wanted to tell you about some of my favorite things from the week.

The kid came down to Nokomis with us for his days off which are Thursday and Friday.  Yesterday he and I spent the morning visiting some of the local thrift shops and we had a ball.

The bargains here are insane!

After all the bargain hunting we wanted to decompress a bit so while MacGyver was helping to trim a tree for a neighbor the Kid and I took out the kayaks.

Look at that view…

We tried to find a certain canal that leads up to a long creek that the kid discovered for the first time a few years ago.  Unfortunately, we went the wrong way for a while and by the time we figured out the right way it looked like a storm was rolling in so we headed back.  We didn’t care that we didn’t find the canal because we had a great time.

Good Friday

That’s the kid way back there soaking up every minute of it.

In case I haven’t mentioned it like 300 times, my niece and nephew are in town and I know of two dogs who are over the moon with all the attention that they’ve been getting.

This picture warms my heart.

True love, unconditionally.

Another favorite from the week was running on this beautiful trail with my sister in law.  As far as sister in laws go, I struck gold with both of mine.  But they’re not just great sister in laws, I truly love the both of them as if they were my own sisters, they are wonderful, wonderful people and if you are lucky enough to know either one of them your world is much brighter, I promise you.

Have a Happy Easter!

Tell me about one of your favorites from the week.

  1. Nothing too much happened this week. I got a new phone and that was fun for a minute. I prefer my old phone LOL Not sure if I’ll return the new one or not. (For the record I went with the Priv ’cause I’m diehard. Or stubborn. Different)

    I’m now going to attempt the beach with all of the tourists and run with 2 (younger, male) coworkers. I told them if I can’t keep up, they can keep going.

    I don’t have a race this weekend so I’m going to cook and clean the house finally. Maybe 🙂 And read.
