Happy Flag Day! I think today is the first time I ever read George Washington’s words and they have special impact this year. They are a good reminder of who and what we are.
Thinking About –
Friday mornings have had a new twist this month, thanks to Michelle’s Tiny Bit of Quiet series! I am truly enjoying her thoughts. Her words provoke lots of thinking in my morning meditation time. This week it seemed the world was in step with last week’s Friday quiet thoughts when yesterday these words reminded me how important those pauses are.
Getting Ready –
I passed the halfway point in my Screen Door yesterday and I will spend some time today memorizing the decreasing rows so that I can get this knit off my needles! I am eager to start a new sweater for fall. I hope to get this sweater cast on over the weekend, that is if I can get Screen Door done! I am also very happy to not be pressured to finish this in 4-days but hope to have it done by Marie’s July 4 kick off in her FB group and I will be happily cheering along the participants.
IN Focus –
I have been thinking about my word (focus) and Macro Monday’s and I have been contemplating how challenging it is to “be in focus.” My life, just like my lens, sometimes focuses on things that are not important – this process has given me much to contemplate as I learn and grow this summer.
Fun, fun, fun –
Finally, it is Friday! Steve told me last night that he wanted Pizza and Wings for happy hour tonight – so we are doing something different and ordering them from a local restaurant. I am going to try and still my inner voice and “be okay” with whatever presentation this takes tonight. Try…. such a little word that can be so hard! Stay tuned to my IG feed to see how well I do with all of that! And, while there might be some dish and lay-out compromising happening, I am not giving in on Happy Hour Outside and there might even be a bonus tonight – I think we will be able to utilize the patio heater because today is not supposed to be warm at all.
That is all I have for this week and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you back here on Monday!

Pizza and wings sound great to me! Along with a nice IPA and the patio heater – sounds perfect! Fox Trot is such a pretty sweater. What color are you going to knit (the yarn you unraveled the other day??).
I like your thoughts about Focus and Macro Monday – very true! I especially like Steve’s pizza and wings idea for tonight, and bet it will more than okay! Enjoy!
Enjoy your Fri snacks and the weekend. I agree it’s always best to build in quiet, especially…
Sometimes it’s a good thing to just . . . mix things up and let it fly! Have a great weekend, Kat. 🙂
Happy Weekend, Kat!! Cheers!
I can confirm, having just eaten lunch outside, that this evening will be a good time to use the heater! It’s quite pleasant and it should be delightful for happy hour, but the heater and maybe a light sweater will be in order. Happy weekend!
I thought your pizza and wings looked great! Happy Weekend!
Our last couple evenings have been amazing for being outdoors. There has been a visit to the Botanical Gardens and an outdoor concert. Why can’t everyday be like this?!
I hope Happy Hour went off without a hitch! Where do these weekends go?
