Friday, June 5

Friday started bright and early with Dancer meowing his usual morning song to wake me up.  I did my usual morning rituals and routines, left a note to the gardener, and drove myself to the office.  I had a very productive day at work, but, I was tired by the time I came home. 

So, I spent a quiet, relaxed evening.  I video chatted with my daughter, called and spoke with one of my friends, replied to another friend's email, watched some TV and did a bit of reading.

Today, I received a compliment on my outfit and the fact that it was all nicely coordinated down to my matching purse.  I thanked the person but I was laughing to myself, because if I was coordinated, it was entirely by accident.  There was a time, several years ago, when I tried to have matching/coordinated outfits and accessories, including shoes and purses.  I had several pairs of shoes in a rainbow of colors, with matching purses.  These days, however, I have black shoes that go with everything and one everyday purse, which is burgundy colored.  I carry this purse no matter what color outfit I'm wearing, but I just happened to be wearing a burgundy and black outfit today.  So, yes, everything matched and was coordinated.  :)  Being complimented was a highlight in my day, though. 

Today, I am grateful for:

- A productive day at the office
- A relaxed evening at home
- Catching up with friends
- Compliments!
- Technology which enables me to keep in touch with others

How was your Friday?  What was your highlight of the day?   


  1. Compliments are always nice to receive. I am never coordinated and couldn't care less about that. I never understood why women would switch out a purse every day or how they had time to! Maybe I just have too much stuff in my purse.

    1. I don't change out my purse anymore, either. I definitely have a lot of things in my purse, and, in any case, I only have the one purse for every day. It is starting to fray, though, so, I'll be needing to look for a new purse, soon.

  2. I just switched out my purse today from the winter black one to the summer beige one. I must be starting to believe that winter is finally over!
    Friday was good, DH and I went shopping in another town. In a charity shop, I found a brand new "brown betty" teapot to replace my old one (which was crazing at the bottom), for $4.99, and a really pretty dress for DGD for $7.95. However, when I got the dress home, even though it was a size 14 (she's almost 9), it was not very big in the bodice. I checked measurements with DDIL (should have done so first) and she is much bigger! So I took it down to the local charity shop before I could get bothered about it, and consoled myself that a local little girl's mother will find it there and be pleased.

    1. That was a good price for the teapot; they're advertised for sale from $25 and up. Sorry the dress didn't fit DGD, but, by donating it again, you will be blessing another little girl.

  3. Always nice to get a compliment.. Makes for a good day..
    I too, just use my same purse.. Too much trouble to change them out , every time you change clothes .ha
    Have a great week.

    1. Definitely easier to have just one purse with everything in it. Hope you have a great week, too, and get everything done to get ready to sell your house.
