Long time no post!

Good Morning friends Smile    It’s been a while!  There have been many mornings that I wanted to get my computer out and type of a post, but just felt like I couldn’t.  It’s funny, even as I set here writing this, I am not sure how to start or what to say. 

As I drink my coffee this morning, I think about the seasons that we go through and experience.  Sometimes they take just days and sometimes they can take months or even years.  Sometimes, it’s okay to just take one day at a time.

 

So what have I been up to lately??

 

Well, I took a mini vacation to see my best friend in Ohio and had the best time.  I was able to see a part of Ohio that was just plain beautiful.  The leaves were starting to turn and the weather was perfect.

She doesn’t like her picture to be taken….. I don’t know why she is beautiful!  But I did manage to sneak this one in while she was driving.  In this shot, she had just picked me up at the airport.  I flew in to Chicago and then it was on to Cleveland.  My flight from Chicago to Cleveland was really short!  I think that I was only up in the air for like 55 minutes. 

Seeing my best friend was like being home for me and immediately felt at ease and relaxed.  After a couple of months of stressful days at work, it was nice to just get away and be on vacation.  Her husbands family is from there and it was so nice to see them again.  When I walked into the house, it felt like I had not left Arkansas.  It was just nice to see everyone.

This view was right across the street from the house that I was staying at…

It was beautiful and calming to see. 

 

I really think there was like 6 Starbucks nearby and of course, we had to at least go into one…

The Pumpkin Spice from Dunkin Donuts is amazing…

 

Before I came to see her, she made plans to take me to places that I didn’t have access to being here in Arkansas….. Trader Joe’s was on the top of the list.

It was really nice…. and the fact that there was no grocery tax was even better.  I picked up a couple of things and couldn’t wait to try them!

 

There was this really cool unfinished castle nearby, so we went on over to check it out and it’s the coolest thing!!

I really did have the best time and can’t wait to go back again.  I miss my friend terribly and it was so good to just hang out with her and talk to her face to face. 

 

Work:

We are still going through a merger and interviews are being conducted, but I am at peace with whatever the outcome.  We should know by the end of November or mid December if the new company is going to retain us as employees. 

 

I have some unused vacation days, so I am off the next few days….. until Tuesday.  I am going to just enjoy the beautiful weather and do some cleaning.  My closet is a hot mess as you can imagine with the weather change.  It’s colder, but not cold enough for winter clothes.  I mean I am still sporting flip flops!

I am also going to do some things outside and just enjoy the day.

There is also a Harvest Party tonight that I am going to check out and then meet up with a friend for dinner. 

 

I hope you have an amazing day and that you take time to smile at yourself today.  Smile
