  1. This is a GREAT list! Let's just pray that you can get it all done. I will be hopeful for you. I especially adore the one about writing a psalm. Today, I was actually reading the book of Psalms and went back to the beginning because I wanted to read the history behind it. I sort of feel like my blog is like a psalms in some ways because it is alot my emotions and I do talk to God or about God alot on it. I don't know. I just think that is a really cool idea. :o)

Your Time (Happy Friday).

Hello my Lovelies. I trust you all a great week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am, as I have lovely dinner plans with a trip to the beach as well as , to catch some much needed sunshine. Don't get me wrong there is great weather all around me here in the tropics, but when you are working in a cold air conditioning office, you don't see much of the sun or warm weather.

I adore simple weekend dresses like the one I've posted, that's breezy and light or shorts with filp flops and a huge beach bag where I just throw my stuff in. The weekend is also not complete without a broad rim hat, the broader the better.

Well Cheers to the wekend and be safe my Lovelies, till we meet again.

Love Lisa

a very happy Christmas to one and all

A very happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to all my lovelies and to all peace and joy.
