A couple of weeks ago, I happened upon a blog that on Friday she pens a letter. It is rather clever that by writing the letter she is briefly summing up her week. She entitles her blog post Friday Letters. After checking out several that had posted to her Friday Letter's Link, I discovered, which isn't surprising, that the contributors are mostly very young mothers. I think it's terrific that young mothers across blogland are connecting,, exchanging ideas, offering advice, but since those days are way long gone for me, my interest in joining with this link quickly disappeared. However I still liked the idea so here is my interpretation of Friday Letters.....
Dear Sunday, you blessed us with a beautiful sunshiny day so naturally I took the opportunity to drive the countryside to capture more barns & farms with my friend, DSLR and her assistant, Tamron 18-270mm ....They make a great combination. I sometimes wonder just how many pictures of barns, farms and fences I have?? Linking to Friday Fences.
Dear "Safe Haven", you are a movie that our Movie Club Ladies decided to see on Monday since all confessed they could never get their husbands to sit through. If you saw the movie, "Sleeping With the Enemy" with Julia Roberts in 1991 your story-line is almost identical. But this time author, Nicholas Sparks placed a slight (very slight) twist at the end. You are definitely a chick-flick, but Josh Duhamel was definitely easy on the eyes.
Dear Snow, where were you at Christmas? where were you in January? where were you in early & mid February? now you decide to visit us?? Now that we are ready for Spring to arrive you decide to snow on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. OK, enough already.
Dear Alzheimer's, I hate you. I know that is an exceptionally strong word and there is very few times that I use it, but I definitely hate Alzheimer's. It took my husband, and now it seems to be taking so many of my friends' parents. Another one of my very dear friends just learned her mother has Alzheimer's. So Alzheimer's I hate you, no if's and's or buts.
Dear Tulips, you bring a breath of fresh air and a hint of spring into the house whenever I buy you. Thank goodness grocery stores always have a delightful mix of blooms to purchase which is exactly what I did last night.
Dear Weight, I am tired of you getting in the way of buttoning my jeans & pants. I am definitely tired of you making me look like I am almost as wide as I am tall (well not quite that bad). I am definitely tired of not being able to wear those cute "sleeveless" tops & dresses in the summertime. So Weight, we are going to have a serious discussion as to what we are going to do about you.
Dear March, this is your first day, so let's see how many terrific days you present to us this month, after all, it is my birthday month. And did you know that March is Optimism Month....that means no negative thoughts are allowed, only positive and in your honor I have a new blog header, hope you like it.
So how about you....do you have a short letter to write to sum up your week? It was fun, give it a try. I have provided a link for any of you that would like to post to the original Friday Letters.
Until next time.....
