Looking Back


This past week was a busy one.  I had so many things I planned to
accomplish but did not.




The days all slipped by so fast.  Work projects, errands, finding products, 
chores around the house ...
etc, etc, etc.



While I am thankful it is Friday and looking forward to the weekend,
I am stopping to think how it has arrived so quickly.



Remember when life moved more slowly?  When summers seemed 
like endless days filled with wonderful memories?  




How I long for those days once again.



I plan to slow down a bit this weekend.  Sit on the porch with a glass
of iced tea.  Watch Bentley chase squirrels.  Enjoy the moment.


Be sure to sign up for my giveaway on the previous post.  I'll be
announcing the winner on July 5th.  Have a happy day!

Bentley ~ I promise to spend more time with you today.

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  7. I miss those long lazy days of summer, too, but it is too hot to sit outside much right now. I guess I will gaze longingly out the window. Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. I know exactly what you mean, Susan. I remember growing up in North Carolina and how the summer days were endless, and lazy. We always had a pitcher of sweet tea with a little dish of sliced lemons to cool of as we sat on the front porch. I miss those wonderful days! Have a lovely weekend, Sharon

  19. It's so true - the summers of long ago that seemed to go on forever now fly by in a flurry of work, gardening and just coping with life. I love the peaceful images on this post.

  21. Love your teapot. Time goes so fast, here it is the end of June already. I plan to spend the weekend on my porch but know it will be gone before I know. Something to do with old age?
