Facetime, fluff, 2 Fridays and friends in the know!

                                  So excited to join Saturday Celebrations with Ruth Ayres! 
                        It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday.

Discover. Play. Build.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!

1.  Facetime with son!
My son actually connected with me while I was walking in Pioneer Park.  
He showed me views from his hotel in Hong Kong, and I showed him the woods.  

2.  Cottonwood fluff!
My friend and I loved seeing the piles of fluff on our Wednesday walk.  
And I learned more about cottonwoods here.  
3.  Our Thursday was Friday!  
We had an unused snow day this year so our Memorial Day holiday became a four day weekend.  My real Friday was filled with fun - time to make appointments, time to grade papers, 
time to walk with friends, and time for dinner at a favorite restaurant 
with one of those friends and our husbands!

4.  Friends in the know!
I made cookie bars to celebrate the end of our week of testing.  With several bars remaining, 
I left the container at school (enticement to return there for some grading on Friday).  
Fellow teachers (also working at school on our day off) introduced me to Webdings 
to solve a technology question, so I shared the last of the cookie bars with them.  


  1. Not that there is a competition but you will win in the category of an unusual celebration - celebrating fluff. ;)
    Enjoy your extra long weekend!

  2. I love a Thursday-turned-Friday almost as much as I love a Tuesday-turned-Monday! How cool to walk and connect to Hong Kong at the same time! Our world is truly amazing--you can even walk amongst the fluffy clouds!

  3. How wonderful to have an extra day off! I always love sharing homemade baked goods as a way to show appreciation or gratitude. I need to make more time to do that because it always feels like you're really doing something special for others.

  4. Love the cottonwood fluff on your walk, like fake snow on your unused snow day. Thanks for sharing all your fun, facetime, fluff, and friends.

  5. We used to have a screened-in back porch and a cottonwood tree...needless to say we don't have either one now. I can't say I share your celebration - it was always a mess on those screens! WowI I can't believe you had an unused snow day. You must be one of the few after the winter we had. Have a great weekend!

  6. LOVE the connecting on so many levels at so many times. There is something so special about skype, twitter and the social media that allows us to stay in touch no matter where we are!

  7. We lived a long while ago with a cotton wood with fluff. It filled our garage each year! I don't have much celebrating thoughts about it, Ramona, but it was fun to hear that they are still around. My huge cottonwood does not produce fluff. Happy for you to have that extra day & to connect with your son. Technology is so wonderful in that area! Happy weekend!
