in their front yards
when was the last time you had a banana split?
wave to kids on the school bus

Happy Friday Pretties Koralee! Your post are pretty everyday, but Friday's over here are special to me. :)
I have to say again how cute the picture of you in your grandma's room is! So Cute! And, what is it about a grandma's room? So Special!!!
I have done two things on your list- I have hugged lots of loved ones this week- my oldest son came home for one night (I hadn't seen in in almost three months) and I tried to stock up on hugs. And, I waved to some kids on a bus. They were thrilled! The simplicity of grade school...
Thanks for playing! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.
Love,
Joyce

Hi Koralee,
Thanks for the reminder to take time to do the little things in life that we tend to forget to do when the troubles of this life consume us. I love your blue pillows, your post always make me smile.

I'm so glad you decided to recycle today. I, too, think this is high on the list for a top 5 keeper. Hope you are having a great trip. Catch you on the flip-side.

Toodles,

Magpie's Mumblings said...

I can never pass by a kids lemonade stand without giving them a couple of bucks. I never want their lemonade (don't like it much) but I figure the kids need the encouragement.

Everton Terrace said...

I couldn't agree more. I posted some of the words to "Sing" this morning, telling people to sing a song this weekend - like minds.
I regularly partake of a banana split - will add some waving to my routine this weekend!

cranberry cottage said...

The last time I had a banana split was a bitter disapointment.

I remembered having them as a child and wanted one really bad. We went to Dairy Queen. I ordered my split. I took a bite of my split and they had not put any banana in it.

BITTERNESS set in, and as we were already on the road it was too late to turn around.
If they had run out of bananas was it too much to tell me?
Can you hear the undertones of disapointment in my comment? LOL

I think I will pick another thing on your list for today.

Randi Troxell said...

i love this pic too.. and i especially love all those pretty pillows too!!

Jennifer said...

Koralee, I agree with my whole heart - I was thinking the same thing today - pillow fights, crunchy leaves, making cookies, thank you notes, brushing the dog, saying "thank you Koralee!". Hugs, Jennifer

Catherine said...

Taking time for the simple things often brings happy results!

May Flower Mama said...

Love the pretty pillows and the oh so adorable toes too.

I have done all the things on your list for this week.~Well does an ice cream sunday count? No bananas. And my neice was selling cookie dough for school, there was no card table though.

Happy weekend to you!

The Dreaming Bear said...

Hi Koralee! Love this list! And I especially love the one about buying things from kids at card tables!!! Oh to see the light in their eyes!!! There's a young lady (about 8-9 yrs. old) who sells her splatter art at the local farmer's market. We've bought several pieces from her this season, and she is always so tickled! It's great fun!

Martha said...

Oh how I love your pillows and that sweet picture with your daughter's feet...that is just too cute

GardenofDaisies said...

I love all your pretty blue pillows!! Mind if I snitch them for my house? :-) And I loved your advice today. I do stop to buy lemonade or painted rocks, or whatever the kids are selling. I remember when my own kids did that. Such sweet memories.

Martina said...

So sweet that picture - fairytale cushions! Hope you've had a great trip!

Luiza said...
