Good Morning To You; I used to sing this to my girls when I went to wake them up each Monday. I hope you had a great weekend; even though our Broncos lost, they played with honor and of course I loved the commercial by Focus on the Family.  We also watched the 49er game and were thrilled to see them win at the very end. Yesterday was a very low key day; after church we went over to our youngest daughter's for lunch. Oh what a wonderful lunch they prepared-thanks Kim & Eric.  The afternoon found hubby working on a Windsor chair a friend had dropped off; it was in desperate need of some repairs. I finally got the border put on my quilt and will hopefully begin drawing out the quilt design today. 
Yesterday, I emailed a childhood girlfriend(my best friend in elementary school)whom I recently connected with. I was reminiscing about the time spent together and details I hadn't thought about in years. Mind you, I haven't seen this gal since I was 18, but I wanted to tell her how much her friendship meant to me during my early years.  I remember she had a little black terrier mix whose name was Sammy; the funny thing is her dog looked identical to my little black male terrier mix, name Middy.  It is so funny how little trivial things stick in our brains.  Do you still see friends from your childhood?  The only other friend I still see/talk to is my best friend from high school.  We remain close even now, despite the distance between our homes.  Whenever we go to California for a visit, I try to see her.  She and her hubby have only been here once and I would love for them to visit again but I've stopped asking; they both work full time and don't take vacations very often.  So girlfriend, in case you read this, come on out!!
We've got snow in the forecast, which is o.k. because this coming weekend we are all going to the mountains and hope to snowshoe.  We were there two weeks ago and there was so little on the ground.  We'll see, you know how weather predictions are. 
Hugs, Noreen


  1. Glad you had a good week-end! Ours was pretty low key. My best friend growing up and I are STILL best buds. I met her in the the second grade. We were 8....We get together about once a month. Such a blessing. Have a wonderful day my friend! HUGS

  2. I also have a childhood friend that I am still close to. It's great to look back and remember elementary school and the teachers we liked...and disliked, and all the fun we had.
    You live in such a beautiful part of the country. I imagine you are never at a loss for things to do to enjoy nature.

  3. thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving that lovely compliment.

  4. Sounds like you had a good weekend. My best friend and I still connect and a dear friend I met in the Philippines in 1974 when our husbands were stationed there, still connects with us even though we have not seen them since then! Sometimes friendships just last and last...she is my sister in Christ. Have a good week!

  5. Noreen, it was great to know that FOF made that commercial. I have heard this verse quoted on national news sources and love it!
    The gospel being shared.
    You have had a busy day. Be blessed, dear friend.
    btw, I e mailed you, but not sure if it went through. Love to you.

  6. I love keeping up with old friends. For some reason I can be 5 or 15 without too much trouble.

    We've been getting snow for several days, though it's coming in fits & starts so it hasn't really accumulated. That'll change tomorrow if the weather prophets are correct (which rarely is the case with them).

    Enjoy your mountain trek!

  7. I have 2 friends from HS that I am still close with. We do not get together as often as we would like, but thanks to e-mail and facebook we stay in touch. Hope you have a great week.

  8. Hi Noreen! I'm playing catch up today. I enjoyed this post! I value my friendships so much, and in thinking about my oldest friends, I have to admit to not having very many from my school days. However Facebook has allowed me to reconnect with a few of them, which has been such a blessing!
