Bff Combination Ketchup or Relish

Since I am so far behind on the BFF posts, I thought, why not just cover them all, right?  Not as easy as one might suspect, but I'm up for a challenge today and so here it is or here is comes as I haven't actually written anything yet. Topics or prompts will be bold italics for clarification.

There are a bazillion posts about life lessons and I enjoy reading every one of them and usually agree with most. I also find every now and then, life has taught me a few things maybe everyone else already knew.

Like:
1) "I love you"  isn't always unconditional and isn't always forever.

2) "You can count on me" doesn't really mean you can.

3) Being a friend is forever and you can count on that.

All the other ones you've already read, yep, they're good and yep, I believe they are true and these can be added to any list you wanna make. Being an acquaintance is much easier, by the way, than being a friend.

Focus on this~~~~~~~~~

Shoes~Over there is the pair of shoes I bought for my granddaughter's wedding and I absolutely love these shoes! When I wear them I am such a lady and feel so girlie and good inside and out. Great shoes do that for me! These are great girlie shoes. Deep chocolate brown with gold crystals twisting up the top of my foot, who wouldn't feel like a dressed up girl in these?

 Silly~A lot of my silly times are compliments of these two furbabies. Top shot is Sadie Jayne who just turned 11 this month. Notice the large well padded bed and even homemade blanket with her name? She pushes them all aside to lay on the hard bottom of the bed and uses the edge as her pillow. She is such a princess. I woke her up for this picture just a few minutes ago. It's nap time for princesses.


This guy is always up for a swim or a walk or a toy toss or a belly rub or a cuddle. Jake turned 12 a week after Sadie turned 11. He is almost always somewhere near me. Right now, I am in my office and  he is curled up on the bed behind me. The dog bed, pillow intact for him, please. He was right behind me when I snapped the pic of Sadie, so I turned and took his, as well. We must be fair, mustn't we?
They are my silliest moments, for sure.


Looking at the calender a minute or so ago I noticed June is tomorrow! Holy Cow, May is gone already. *sigh* I wanted my summer to drag on and on and here one month of it has passed already. It just reminds me TIC TOC the clock is indeed ticking. I will not miss even one day of this long anticipated season. It is my mission this summer to be part of every single summery day and not miss one opportunity to enjoy and savor the sun and warmth. I'll even enjoy the rain this summer because my flowers do enjoy a nice shower!
As time passes, I know that we have worked hard for a long time to be where we are today and I plan to reap the benefits at every turn. I love summer.

Good Deeds are easy enough if you keep your eyes open. Are they worth bothering about? Sure they are. If you make one person smile or laugh out loud once a day or once a week, you'll be a better person. If you remove an obstacle for one person this month, you'll feel better about who you are. Every good deed pays dividends immediately directly to your heart. The best ones are the ones you don't even think about. You just do what seems to be the right thing at the moment. It's really an exercise in good judgment. Giving of yourself feels good.

All right, there we have it.
Focus on Shoes, Silly, done.
Tic Toc. done
Life Lessons. done
A Good Deed. done

All ketchuped and relish made!   :)

  3. Excellent post, Jo. I love summer, too--we don't get that much of it in New England, so I get greedy for hot days and warm nights, dinner eaten at outdoor restaurants, reading on the back deck.... And your "babies" are so cute! My silly dog makes me laugh every day, too.

    1. Thank you, Elaine. You have seen the backyard and that is where you will find me everyday that it is 65* or more! If it rains, lightly, I will open the awnings and sit out there anyway and eat out there for sure. The wind does cause me to close the awnings and then I might have to come back in.
      I live for summer. One day I will live where it is always summer. One day. ♥

  9. I'm a member of BFF but have never written a prompt for them. I've just been too busy. The shoes are great and the dogs even better! Have fun at the wedding.

    I feel like I'm going to lose my summer with the surgery. I do treasure the summer but have to report back to work July 30. Isn't that obscene for a school teacher? There should be a law against starting school so early!

    1. The wedding was over a year ago! HE HE It was fun. The furbabies are precious and always good for a smile.
      I agree with the July 30 thing...way too early and you should have at least 90 days off for recovery! Put your foot down.
