A Week of Fridays

Here it is Monday again for us. Lucky me, however, every day seems like Friday. I retired early! My husband and I have a week of Fridays. Tonight, we’ve been invited out to dinner once again by our famous neighbors. They leave in a couple of days for Bucharest, where one of his many plays is opening. Tomorrow, we will be going out for pizza with my brother as a goodbye dinner. He will fly home the following day, but will return 12 days later with his wife until April 4th. Thursday is not only Valentine’s Day, but our grandson’s 9th birthday! We have dinner reservations at my favorite steakhouse. I also sent our grandson a very nice gift this morning. And Friday is date night Friday. I love Fridays. What are your Monday plans? ~Photo is of Orville the osprey after his Good Morning fly by~

I use to love fridays, when i was young and going to school, and then when we had the kids every weekend. Now they're just like every other day, so nothing special to love them for. You have a wonderful week planned

I've loved them since I was 8 years old, but hubs has kept them romantic and exciting since we began dating and throughout our entire marriage. We were just discussing where to go for Friday date night. lol Yes, thanks, we do have a week of my favorite day planned.

That's a great picture of Orville. You have a busy week this week. I hope dinner was great last night. Monday plans - movie - A Dog's Way Home - excellent. Work on a book - two actually. Watched TV, and was here for a little bit in the morning. I also got in a nap. It was a good day.

Thanks. It's so difficult to capture him in flight. I believe he was getting ready to dive, but who can remember? Lol! Dinner was fabulous! I think they really, really like our company and vice versa. You seem to have had a good day, too. Tonight is brother time! I'm going to invite him over for a drink before we head out for pizza. Texting him right now.

@DianneN Have fun at dinner. Thank you. Nothing better for me than to watch all that lovely snow. If I were younger, I'd be out in it. I hope it's packable. My friend and I are planning to make a snowman.

My daughter and son-in-law had to do a quick run to CA so I'm watching the grandkiddies, horses, donkey, two dogs and 10 cats. I need a vacation and a week of Fridays.

@DianneN I need a couple weeks by myself with nature, bon fires, perking coffee over an open fire, and listening to the sound of a light breeze bristling through the trees.

Yesterday I watched a predictable movie, another episode of Game of Thrones and an awesome new show called Rivera. I also cleaned out the litter boxes. Today I have been messing around on the computer looking up stuff and looking at my cousin's wedding registry. Happy Birthday to your grandson!! Thursday I'm getting my hair cut.

@DianneN I didn't get to get a hair cut yesterday. My hairdresser (who is a family friend) was sick. I will be probably going next week. I'm getting my Easter/spring haircut early. Thanks. The picture is an old picture.

You definitely have a lot of exciting things going on. For me it was just a typical Monday. Kids went to school and daycare. I did some work. And that was about it.

No, my grandson is in New York City and will celebrate with his family and at his birthday party with friends. His hockey is great and he played at Madison Square Garden at halftime yesterday. Yes, thanks, we do have a wonderful and happy marriage. We always celebrate date night Friday, even after Valentine's Day. Onnie will be one happy kitty!

@Marty1 No, it's tradition for a family dinner at the restaurant of his choosing. Weekends are when they have kids parties. Next time I FaceTime with Doodles, tomorrow most likely, I will. Hugs to you and Onnie and extra love!

I also love Fridays because I can sleep late but can catch up with sleep by oversleeping the next day. I also love weekdays , because I go to work and have hearty laughs while working just listening to the jokes of my officemates.
