Friday's Are For ?

Happy Friday dear friends!  I have always loved Friday's, especially when I was working.  Now every day is for fun!  How about you?  Do you trudge through the week waiting for Friday?  I would love to say that I have nothing on the agenda today but I do have errands to run.  Yesterday, when hubby got home from racquetball, he told me to pack a lunch because we were heading up to Estes Park and the Rockies.  Did he know that the mountains were calling me?  The view looked clear and sunny; a great winter day to head up.  Less than an hour later, we were pulling into town; hoping that we might see some wildlife.  Silly person, it is the middle of winter. Some areas of Estes and the park had no snow, while others had quite a bit. We talked to the ranger and he said that the area we are hoping to go snowshoeing in, in a month, had almost two feet of new snow.  Our Hunter was with us and did so well on this trip; some days he doesn't like rides as much as others-but we did have two blankets in the back for him to lay on.  We didn't see any Elk but saw a small herd of Deer; planned on taking a photo on the way back but of course they were gone. 
What a wonderful afternoon; I am always so blessed that the mountains are that close to us! 
This weekend will be a normal one-we are having our snow-bird friends, who are leaving Sunday, over for dinner tomorrow night.  Not quite sure what we are serving yet but just spending some more time with them, before they leave, will be nice.  I hope you have a wonderful day, whether at work or at home and give thanks for the gifts in your life!
Blessings, Noreen & Hunter


  1. Sounds like you had a great time! We're still in the deep freeze. Mom says we need to plan a little trip to someplace warm!

    Keep Calm & Bark On,

    Murphy & Stanley

  2. Strangely enough my Fridays are for house cleaning. After years of spending my weekends cleaning house, I decided that in my retirement I would do nothing more than dishes on weekends.

    Have a great weekend with your friends.

  3. Even retired, I find myself looking forward to Friday - and the weekends. I loved our visit to Estes Park and RMNP ... I expect that we'll make a return trip one of these days. Perhaps we can arrange to meet when we do. ;-)

  4. Indeed, as I get older,I am so thankful for work and play, Your day sounds absolutely perfect. Don't you just love it when our Dh's come in and say lets go?Glad Hunter was able to go, our dear little jack has got to the place he doesn't like to be left at home, and is just so good with traveling.
    Enjoy your weekend and your company.

  5. Happy New Year. You are very blessed to live near the mountains. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  6. For my MOM she looks forward to Mondays. It is suppose to be her day off. Even when she does work, it's just more relaxed with no one else around, except me. Of course now she will be working on Mondays too. But it's all good, just means an extra day for me at Bert's place.

  7. It sounds like you had a nice drive and I'm glad Hunter enjoyed it, too.
    I really look forward to Mondays (weird, I know) a fresh start to a new week. Have fun with your snowbird friends- xo Diana

  8. Wish we lived closer to the mountains! Sounds like a fabulous trip!! You guys have so much fun together!! I would love to go someplace warm right about now...but that doesn't sound like it is going to happen this year. Happy Weekend to you Noreen! Hugs to Hunter!
    xo Jeanne, Chloe and LadyBug

  10. Thank you sweet gal for your comments...I have missed you too and I am planning to go back and read some of your previous posts so I can catch up......

    I love that you and your hubby can jump in the car and go exploring....What fun.....

    I hope your 2013 is full of blessings.....

  11. Fridays is for eating chickens and sleeping!

  12. You are so blessed to live so close to RMNP. Estes Park is one of my favorite places on earth! We looked a homes while we were there last fall, but they are kind of pricey. For now we are happy where we are, for our retirement years, who knows? Not sure what God has in store. I do indeed enjoy every day. Nice post, Noreen.

  13. Fridays fun day and date night!! Sounds like you really had a good time! Week-ends are fun!
