friday share time

A few things to share with you before you begin what I hope will be a wonderful weekend. I was going to go camping this weekend but plans fell through. I'm actually totally fine with this but I had plans to share a cool camping photo I had on store so I'm going to share it anyway because who knows when I'll go camping again and have the chance to share the photo.

Lets agree its a nice photo of camping.

A few other things that I have seen this week that I enjoy.

Incredible right? I think I'm going to add "learn how to yoyo on my 100 by 100 list" (I don't actually have a list like that But I think I'm going to make one and the first thing will be yoyo).

Here is another video that DesignMom posted and I really really enjoyed. Its a beautiful poem set to video. I don't know about you but sometimes I crave alone time.

I love that last line. A testament. I've learned to really cherish time by myself. There was a period in my life where I was always alone, when I had no friends and no dates and no family around. Eventually I embraced it and discovered so much about myself. I became very self-sufficient. I became my own best friend. Like from Space Balls...with the dog guy. ha. Anyway, I remained in that state until one day I decided to pray to have friends. Shortly after that I met my best friend and I've had a steady stream of truly amazing people in my life ever since. I am a very blessed person. Funny (or dumb) that it takes me so long to ask God for help when He is so readily willing to bless me.

Lastly we are having a guy come by to tell us how outrageous an idea it would be to finish the attic. I'm feeling less and less ambitious with house projects the longer we live in this house. But adding another 400 sq ft and a bedroom if we can do it on the cheap is a good way to ensure that we don't take it in the pants when we move in a couple of years. It would be a project and a half but I have this beautiful picture of an attic bedroom in my mind. It looks similar to this one. :)

Have a great weekend!

well said. I agree- I used to hate to be alone I would immediately get severely depressed, but now I have learned to relish in my alone time and if I don't get a good portion of it each day then I am a total bum head. So there you go. Thanks for being my best friend. You are...simply...a perfect fit for me.

Loved the video. I had a huge adjustment this summer when I was forced to spend a lot of time alone at home...for the first time really. I did okay. :-)
