Friday Favorites #37

October 2, 2015

Hi Everyone.  Can I say that I am super glad that today is Friday?  It has been one of those weeks.  You know the kind where you just can't wait for it to be over?  

Heavy rains moved into my area on Tuesday and it put down well over five inches......a couple inches of which ended up in my basement.  It was quite an unexpected shock because when I was in the basement at 4PM there was nothing, but by 6 the water was over the entire floor.  Needless to say there was quite a mess, but luckily anything that can get ruined is stored up off the floor.  It is just a job to get everything moved and dried out.  

Clean up and a mostly rainy week has pretty much delayed my plans and getting pictures taken, but I'm moving forward.  I'm focused on what is in front of me.  Do you ever find that one small problem can put you in a mood that affects your entire week?  I've been working hard lately to avoid that because I'm definitely the type that can get brought down easily.  

Enough about me and my week, though.  There are much worse things that a little water in the basement.  This post is supposed to be uplifting and inspiring, so here are a few of my favorite things from over the past week.

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.
