The Friday Files



Hello, dear friends.  Did you have a good week?  We are taking our #2 girl out for a celebration lunch and shopping today.  Her last day at her old company was Wednesday, and she begins her next chapter with a new job in two weeks.

I am counting the minutes until we close on the house on the 5th.  As I mentioned, we are making the actual move on the 19th because we are having some work done at the house.

Everyone, say hello to my friend, Amy from Coffee and Cocktails at the Casa and her pup, Ernie.


My 8-year chocolate lab is named Ernie.  
He comes running when he hears a string cheese being opened.  
He is a good boy!  
He enjoys both boating in the summer and playing in the snow in the winter.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  7. Fun post. That 15thC Ming bowl is fabulous, but most of those so-called treasures in the attic are more hype than hard cash, I'm sorry to say! Bet you can't wait for the move! Congratulations to your daughter and her new job. Best wishes!

  11. Hi....You are always full of lots of fun info! Looking forward to hearing more about your new home. love checking out your links but then it's always tough getting back to your post. Did you know when you add a link in Blogger you can check "open this link in a new window"? That way, we, who visit on a computer, can easily come back to your original post!

  13. Congratulations on the new house- fun times ahead! Always enjoy your recommendations but just not understanding the slobbering affection for Fauci- he's directly responsible for the deaths of AIDS patients in the late 80's with the AZT scandal and he could have done a lot of good by just recommending people take vitamin D3, vitamin C, zinc and quercetin during this pandemic. I wouldn't go to him if he were the last doctor on earth. Well, enjoy shopping for the new house. Cheers.
