Friday Fantasy

from here.

Ahhhh, Friday.  Not much different from any other day around here.  Haha. 

The temperatures took a nose dive this week, here in the mountains.  The warm air that we were getting used to turned bitter cold and frost has curled the most delicate blooms that were confidently basking in the spring sunshine.  I am hoping and wishing for the warmth to return.  And while I'm waiting, this perfect pink patio is reeling me in with it's enchanting ways.  I'm feeling particularly girly and the classic combo of pink, green, and white is proving very appealing right now. 

I can just feel my bare feet against the warm brick pavers.  Now, if I only knew how to use that surfboard. 

For those interested in what has been grilling my brain this week, here it is.  I have been studying to take the exam to get my contractor's license.  I went to an eight hour seminar Monday, and let me just tell you, information overload is an understatement.  I have been nose down in a pile of eighteen books that I have to be quite familiar with before the exam.  Eighteen books! They range from business to excavation to steel beam construction. 

As most of you have already figured out, I have been working for my brother's construction company since I quit my job last year.  It's been on and off.  Nothing full-time or very consistent.  But hopefully that is going to change.  I'll let you know more about that situation as it unfolds.  But, for now, I have to keep my nose to the grind to try to earn my contractor's license. 
Wish me luck!

Have a great weekend, friends.  And, as I mentioned yesterday, there is a closet cleaning post in the works.  Please come back and do some cleaning with me!
