  1. Andi, love the time travel pics.

    So glad it's Friday. 5 or 6 new kids on our side today. Too tired to keep clear count. My sub aide has her last day with me today. I will carry a big hanky. She was wonderful. Very efficient and fun to work with.
    My aide from last year broke her leg and has had a hard time healing. She will be able to return Monday. She is a dear, sweet lady, but can only do about 2/3 of the work the sub got done. SIGH. We know who will have to pick up the slack.

    Writing has ground to a dead halt with fatigue and a bad case of perfectionism. Will have to shatter that this weekend While hubby is gone.

    Beth, have a great girl time.

    Maria, sleeeeep late and write like the wind.

    Farf, hope you get to enjoy some Mason time. And not so much heavy work around the house. Oh and good writing time too.

    Waves to O, Jen, MaryB, Dina, Kelly, Boran, CF and all others coming this way.
    Fabulous Friday to All.

  2. That tree's had a hard life. I like this set a lot.

  3. This is a great series! Love that you have seen this tree in so many different seasons, over the years. Nice feeling of continuity.

    Girls are having a blast. Swore last night at the Navagator was the most fun they've ever had. My friends were sweet to them, they danced and sang, and are ready to move down here. Funny how you see things differently through other people's eyes.

    More activities today - the temps dropped drastically this week, but supposed to be 80 and sunny today. 56 right now - coldest it's been in a long time! I have my sweat pants on....and wish I had slippers!

    Sorry about the increased workload, Lisa - hopefully it will lessen soon.

    Great Friday to all who follow -

  4. ooh, nice series! (and with blue skies!)

    Hi everybody, have a good day!

  5. That's a cool series, Andi. And a very interesting tree.

    It's c-c-cold here today, just in time for the weekend.

    Tomorrow is the big trek to Long Island for my parents' anniversary party. I hate that long drive but will be glad to see the family.

    Waves to all.

  6. Whoa, talk about time warps — Hi Boran!

    Nice set of pix there, Andi… makes me wonder what happened to that poor tree to make it zig-zag its way towards the sky.

    Good luck with the aide change, Lisa… hoping it works out. Three or four drinks puts the perfectionist to sleep, I've found… much more than that and it gets hard to type, so it's a fine line!

    Yay for warming up, Beth… it was in the 40s this morning but I bundled up & took the motorcycle because Mrs. Fetched needs the car today. I should shuck the boots and stick my feet in the sunbeam just outside my cube, maybe they'll warm up a bit. (I'm not complaining about low 40s, I've seen it get down to 10 in November before and we've barely had any frost so far. I had a fresh tomato on my sandwich at lunch yesterday.)

    Hey to Mary, Jim, and Maria (who might be simul-posting as I type), and whoever else shows up later…

  7. LOL! I love, love, love it. Gave me a big laugh this morning ... :D

  8. Sorry to hear your aide is leaving, Lisa. Maybe the old aide will be energized by her time off and be much more productive.

    Hi Jim. Fancy seeing you here. :D

    Keep up the good work, Beth -- 'cause keeping friends happy is the best kind of work there is.

    The skies are blue just for you, Mary. ;)

    Ugh on the long drive, b2, but I hope your parents have a wonderful celebration and you have a great time.

    Hey, Farf, I never wear my shoes to work and no one has ever complained ... oh wait ... what's that ... well exxxxcuuusssee me, Sniff, I had no idea you felt that way.

    Hi O. Always glad to give ought laughs.

  9. Uhm, afternoon, gang...I seem to have taken Lisa's advice without knowing it. Thanks to a combo of my normal meds and a Flexeril for my aching back, I ended up sleeping until 11:30 this a.m. Still a bit groggy, but hoping my writing will accomplish Lisa's other wish. ::g::

    Just sneaking in before I go offline for the duration today. Must get in a good 4-5 hours of quality words and self-edits.

    Hugs to all!!

  10. Andi, this is such an interesting group of photos. The changes in the leaves catches your eye at first and then the slightly different angle on each adds to the curiosity and the beauty. I'm wonderint oo what kind of tree Mr. Snakey is and what make it twist that way.

    All the best to you all. Have a great weekend.

  11. I hope the writing is going well, Maria and you just cruise to your deadline.

    Howdy CF. The tree is a sassafras. And I'm guessing it had a difficult childhood. :)
