Lavendar toes, a soak in a tub of bubbles and a long nap sound like the perfect way to spend your weekend time. Enjoy each and every moment. Treat yourself like a Queen. Off to read yesterday's posting more closely. All about women who create, love it already.

Sweet Dreams,

Someone always wakes me up when I try to take a nap.

I have an update on Amden's prayer request on arise 2 write.

oh how I wish I was out West to see the tulips and cherry blossoms and japanese magnolias. SIGH!

m.e (Cathie) said...

I can't remember, but a massage & a facial would be a great way to begin!

Hi Koralee,

Sounds like the perfect weekend for you, dear friend.
Lovely post as usual and always such a treat to come and visit you.


Kathysue said...

Sounds perfect to me. I actually take naps fairly often but the favorite day of the week to take a nap is Sunday. There is something about that day that feels as if it is more legal or something. Nothing like a Sunday afternoon nap. Ooooh Lavender toe nails I like that, Have a wonderfully, bubbbly weekend. Kathysue

Charlene said...

Sounds like heaven. And what is the occasion? Just because? That's the best. I love the way you put the days of the week on the flower photo! Adorable! Charlene

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

I take short naps at least 2 times a week.

The only way I can unwind after a long day is by taking a bath-Nothing relaxes me like a good soak!


Auntie Cake said...

Sounds like a perfect day! Hope it all goes as planned. I am so loving watching all about your beautiful area on the Olympic coverage. (Yes, I am still glued to my tv... Glad it only lasts 17 days!!!) Hope you get those toenails painted. And enjoy those blooms for us! My garden is buried under three feet of snow still, but I am hoping it will be here before I know it!

Julie Harward said...

Thats wonderful..I think you should paint every toe nail a different color, just to be cute! You have flowers blooming in your garden there? Now I am really jealous! ;D

Heather Cameron said...

I just woke up from one - I put my girl to bed at 8pm and passed out with her till 9pm. Felt great!

Karyn Bernard (French Charming) said...

Sounds like a divine plan to me! Glad to hear that you're taking the time to take care of yourself. I can't remember the last time I took a nap, sounds good though!

Big hugs to you Sweet Friend!!

Sweet Koralee, here I am, a latte grande next to my laptop.... for starters your today's post. What can I say... like tulips, like purple tulips, like your purple tulips accompanied by those sweet words! I like lavender, fresh and dried for its color, looks and flavor. I like Koralee for her sweetness, cheerfulness and loveliness in posts and person! Off to read ALL your past posts, the musical Snow White shows right now and my babies are enchanted , so I will be able to read quite a lot ... Have a joyful day! Saskia oxoxox

It's in those little indulgences Koralee, that we find the physical strength to get back on our feet! I was off yesterday, and even though I didn't get to give my feet a lavender soak as I had planned, the rest of the day was quiet, lovely and peaceful! Beautiful world you have going here!!!

hometown girl said...

Dear Koralee~

Sharon Lovejoy said...

Good morning Koralee, Thanks for visiting.

When I coddle myself I paint each toe a different color-according to season. Right now I am heading toward spring with turquoise, pink, lime green, coral, and golden yellow. It makes me happy to look at my rainbow-toes.

Love and have a joyous weekend,

Great Idea! I'm thinking very much the same thoughts! I have lots of jobs to do, I'm going to get a wriggle on over the weekend so I can relax over my week off!

Kitty M said...

Roll on the weekend Koralee! Sounds like you have got a lovely few days ahead. I love a weekend when you have no plans at all and can stay cosy at home. Nothing like curling up on the sofa with a blanket, cup of tea and having a sneaky afternoon sleep :-)

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
I'm enjoying a little ME time right now :)
We were dismissed shortly after noon due to "inclement weather."

What a snowy week ~ but as they say en français... C'est février! It's February!

I WISH flowers could bloom here in February ~ ...for now, they bloom in my kitchen :)

Relax & Enjoy your weekend dear ♥

Your blog is such a dose of happiness for me -- especially right now. Thanks for always making my day brighter :)

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

You certainly deserve every ounce of all that "sweetness"! As for a nap...remember, I have an empty nest...I actually get to do that on weekends sometimes.


Lori E said...

Hello fellow Vancouverite. What a beautiful blog you have here. I found my way over here from Calm Energy. You are very creative and I will definitely look for that magazine shown below. My workspace could really use a makeover.
BTW I see the Asian characters in the comment above. It has been my experience that they are from porn sites or timeshare sites and it is best to remove them or they keep coming back.

Lori E said...

Of course I had to follow along and grab your badge too. Want to make sure I come back here.
