Friday Fragments - Ya-Hooey!



Man-oh-man I thought today would never get here!  Not that it makes that much difference having the weekend to play, lounge around, sleep in...I work in retail...there are no weekends!  So, I play, lounge around and sleep in whenever I can, regardless of the day!  It is a special treat to spend a morning (Monday through Friday) getting nothing done.  Don't get me wrong!  It's not like I do this everyday; just once in awhile...like...every third or fourth day!

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day.  I use this day as a last-ditch effort to get my Christmas cards out.  Otherwise, I have to go to through all the cards, cross out "Season's Greetings" and write over with the words, "Happy Easter!"  After the birth of my second child in August (many, many years ago), I just couldn't get to the Christmas cards, so I sent out Easter greetings.  It worked for me.

Valentine's Day is also the day that the kids gave to our beloved rescue dog, Tootsie!  For a special birthday treat, we drive through Mickey D's and get her a cheeseburger.  I worked yesterday, so was unable to accomplish that.  Dad reminded me that dogs don't know what day it is....so I guess that's where we are going today...in addition to the gazillion other errands.  I'll get a coffee and she'll get a cheeseburger (boo-hoo!)!



I discovered a great site for tree, eco-friendly, self-sustaining dwellings on f/b.  It's called "Living Off The Grid" and I'm not sure if they have their own website, or just a photo gallery on f/b.    There are some really fun things to see!



I'd love to share more pictures and have the placement of same be to my liking, however, the blog gods have made some changes and it has taken me two hours to get to this point.  I will leave you now before my lips begin spewing four-letter words, and pray that your weekend is full of laughter, hugs and happy events.  Be sure to stop by Friday Fragments and say hello to the delightful Mrs.4444!

Those are cute off the grid homes. I thought the first one was a Hobbit house.

Lucky Tootsie to get a birthday burger. We say Dodger's birthday is Halloween, but we usually forget to get him anything. Oh well, he did eat 3 saucer-sized Valentine cookies that I had left in a bag in my office yesterday....he didn't throw up 'til this morning. :)

I like your decision to send Easter Cards. Too many send out Christmas cards out of some sort of ritual tradition without much sentiment. It must be refreshing for friends and family to receive an Easter card. After all, Easter is the culmination of the Christmas Calender, not Christmas.

I could definitely live in one of those tree houses. Ha-ha I like your idea of greeting cards.

That "tree house" looks like so much fun! I would love to have one of those....but only for vacation. I'm more traditional...haha
Happy birthday to your dog. She sounds adorable and loved.
