Good morning friends and a happy Friday to you. Are you ready for the weekend? Me too! It has been so hot here this week I am drained. Tonight my niece is coming over for a sleepover and she want me to teach her how to make spaghetti and meatballs and brownie sundaes. Honestly, I could do without the spaghetti and meatballs and just have the brownie sundae for dinner but I do not think my brother would appreciate that. What are your plans for the weekend?
I have lots to share today so pull up a chair and get yourself a beverage because I think you are going to be here for a while.
