The Friday Files

Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you had a good week.  Mine was very good - I had a couple of catch-up lunches with some good friends.  I also finished all my yearly medical tests, in which I received shining stars which is always a relief.

Tonight, we are going out to dinner.  We will play the rest of the weekend by year, as my #1 used to say when she was a wee one.  I am excited for some cooler weather headed our way, so I will probably be reorganizing my closet.
