Friday and I'm off!

See the re-potted african violet blooming already?  That plant has had blooms every day for almost three years now.  It was so pot bound I was afraid it would die if I didn't re-pot it even though it was in full bloom.  I think it will be fine though.

So yesterday I had a nice canasta game but never did get any good cards all day long, I ended up losing $11.25 which is quite a lot for canasta.  I'll recover next time but think about it this way, I had hours of fun for eleven bucks, right?

Today I am off so I think I'll run to the fruit stand.  What an exciting life I lead!  Then I am invited to another condo in the evening for "cocktail hour" (I'll have diet coke) and then we are going to hear a speaker.  It's a night out and we'll see what happens.  There are four of us (widows) going.

Have a wonderful Friday y'all.  Then it'll be the weekend!


  1. I love my violets! They're SO forgiving. Even though we have a sprinkler system outside I still take about 45 mins. In the summer to hand water all of my potted/hanging plants. The flowers make all the difference in this tiny bit of space we have!
    Yes, avoid toxic people like the plague. You and I both know from working with the public, you run into so many that you sure don't want to have to deal with them on your own time!
    Happy, happy two pounds off! I just love seeing how you're doing, and knowing that you've got so much get-up-and go!!!
    Enjoy your Friday....

  2. Your violet look lovely.

    I am thinking of turning my pool heater on next week. I need to start excising again and like you I do better in the pool.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. Oh, a girls night out sounds fun! Totally tits! YAY you!

    Kevin has already written a few lines for the children's book! Woohoo!

    Big hugs xoxo

  4. Your violet looks very happy! And your evening out sounds like fun. Have a great day and a great weekend. Hugs!

  5. Have fun tonight. We will, too. Only one week left here. Sniff, sniff.

    Big hugs, honey...

  6. You're just a very busy unbelievable woman Bee. I'm happy for you. Have fun my lovely friend.


  7. I suppose it depends on who's speaking as to whether Diet Coke is an adequate stimulant.

  8. That's the way I look at games, all that fun and it really didn't cost all that much. Some folks have to win though and they make everyone else crazy with their constant antics. I avoid these people too.

    Have a terrific day off. Going to the fruit stand is a fun thing. Big hugs from cold and windy, but sunny California. ☺

  9. $11 for hours of fun is a bargain. Hope you have fun at the other condo with your friends. x

  10. Ciao!!!

    11 dollars for so much fun are a little price!
    Have a great Friday...I wait for the tale of your cocktail hour...etc....

    Big hugs!

  11. Your violets make me smile. Also make me think of my mom. I miss her! I can't wait to hear about your party/speaker. Have fun!
