Friday Favorites #31

April 24, 2015

Would you believe that yesterday, April 23, there were blizzard-like conditions at times in PA?  I posted this picture to Instagram in utter disbelief.  

Today's forecast is much improved thankfully.  It is difficult to work on a spring post while it is snowing outside!  

I'd like to express my gratitude to those of you who commented on my Thoughts on Blogging post Wednesday.   This weekend I hope to sit down and answer all the comments....they aren't the type you can reply to with a simple Thank You.  Your warm wishes and encouragement mean the world to me and are one reason why I stick with blogging.  It is a relief to get that all out in the open and I'm glad that so many of you seem to have the same feelings.  Where we go from here is still unclear, but I don't feel alone in what I'm experiencing anymore. 

Tomorrow my cousin Allison will be getting married.  My mom and I will be taking my grandma out of the nursing home to attend, so all thoughts and prayers extended our way would be appreciated!  It will be the first time she's been outside the nursing home since December 23, so we are crossing our fingers that it all goes well.  I think it will mean a lot to her, though, to be able to attend her great-granddaughter's wedding.  

Hopefully Sunday can be spent just relaxing.  It is nice to have one day each week to enjoy having nothing to do.  Life seems to be rushing by and Sundays are my one time to slow down a bit.  What plans do you have for the weekend?

I try my best to find images from their original sources to credit the owner of the picture.  Sometimes the picture gets separated from it's source, and without a watermark cannot be traced easily.  If you find something here that belongs to you or someone you know, please email me and I'll be happy to link back to you or remove the image if that is what you would like.
