I'm about to head out for a salad picnic in a local park and take a long walk. The weather here is GORGEOUS. It's just perfect for this plan.

And Fire - I LOVED your post! That's taking advantage of those golden years. ;-)

Everyone - enjoy your wonderful fun!

Love this one. For a change I am NOT working a 12 hour day, Keelie!

I am meeting John after work...which means time spent with him...YAY...and going to a Chris Mann concert. I've never heard him but John has...so looking forward to having a night of music & John.

This could prove tough as I'm working my second job tonight which means a 12 hour day, BUT I genuinely like all my co-workers so I'm sure I can squeeze out a few giggles ;-) Also when I get home I have been promised a foot rub from my super sweet fiancé, any time spent with him is fun time

I will be doing some food shopping and I always look forward to greeting as many strangers as I can. Goal? To get a smile and a handshake.

Being "old" makes it much easier to do this. Everyone knows by looking at me that I am no threat what so ever.

May 17 Fun Friday

Let's repeat this challenge...I loved the ways you all responded before and thought that it's almost a month since we have done this one, let's do it again.

It's time for "Fun" once again. Let's set aside all our frustrations, our struggles and challenges and concentrate today on just finding our positives and refocusing on fun and laughter. We deserve to be happy and to feel the freedom of letting go of worries.

What are you going to do today to bring a smile to your face, a bit of laughter in your life and generally be able to say at the end of the day..."it was a fun day"?


Today: I am heading out to my garden and transplanting the veggie plants that I purchased yesterday. I'm so excited about being able to finally get to my garden again.
I'm taking some time to enjoy my water fountains and meditating with the sound in the background. I'm having family time this evening. Love spending time with my family.

Have a great day, remember, it's your choice of how you respond to anything that comes your way.

Hugs,
Wanda

Love this challenge, Wanda!!

At the office today so will TRY to figure out how to add fun to my day...especially since we are confined to the building & told to stay away from windows & doors because there is a propane tank that was left on the sidewalk outdoors...

May have to wait until I leave for home to have fun...but that will be with my kitties, a book and a DVD!

Thanks Wanda for putting some FUN in Friday.
I'm heading to Louisville for the night and meeting a friend I haven't seen in awhile. While I really don't have time to do this due to a "todo" list that is longer than Methuselah's beard, I've decided to insert a little fun into my hectic life.
Have a great weekend!

I am going to haul out my memories of my aunt Muriel and find the ones that I can share tomorrow as we attend Aunt Muriel's memorial. I'm going to concentrate on letting go of the sadness of the occasion and look forward to seeing family that I haven't seen in many years. By then end of the day, I expect to have found much laughter and lighteness.

Hugs,
Wanda

Great topic. We spent a wonderful Friday afternoon watching out grandson play baseball for the Hamilton HS team. He is a very talented player and is being actively recruited by several major colleges.

My first thought was that this is a difficult challenge since I am starting my day with a funeral for a woman who has been a part of my life for 28 years. Then rethinking, I realize that once we return to the reception, there will be sharing of memories and no doubt, some of them will be funny since she had quite the wit and quick comeback.

March 15 Fun Friday!

Okay, it's time to do something fun. Many of us are struggling with issues in our lives right now and it's time to set them aside and just take some time for a bit of fun and laughter.

What are you going to do today to bring a smile to your face, a bit of laughter in your life and generally be able to say at the end of the day..."it was a fun day"?


I will remind myself that "Balance is my true nature", I will enjoy the fact that I must shovel snow for exercise, I will share in the laughter at work and any opportunity that I can find to spread some positive energy.

I can never log on until the end of the day, so I'm planning for Fun Friday! On Feb 22, DH and I are going to have a movie night. We have a few DVDs from the library, including some concerts (Tina Turner, Il Divo, the Guess Who...) We haven't had a movie night in ages!

I have a craft project that I'm having fun working on! I'm gluing glass, floral supply beads to a clear wine bottle. When it's done, I'll be threading Christmas lights into the bottle. To make a decorative light feature. :D

Feb 15 Fun Friday!

As the winter drags on, we often feel like we are dragging too. Today is a great day to do something fun!
What are you going to do to bring a smile to your face and laughter in your voice? Maybe it's something that you are doing on your own, or maybe you are involving others in your fun. Take the time to play.

Hugs,
Wanda

What are you doing for fun? Are you allowing the stresses of the season to get to you? Take a deep breath and just feel renewed in the moment and then keep on going forward. Share some laughter, smiles and even hugs...they go a long way to making your day bright.

It's time to have some fun. You have worked hard all week at being the best you can be, you've been mindful. You had your struggles and survived. Now it's time to have some fun!

What and how are you going to treat yourself this weekend?


I am going to sleep in until 7 am.
I am going to spend some time with my girls baking.
I am going to enjoy just being alive.

My fun for today was a manicure after a long day at work. I have a wedding to go to tomorrow. Usually pick a soft pink polish, very suttle, but decided to go with a bright pink to match my toes. I am wearing black with silver threads in the jacket so the color will not clash.

We are already half way through the month of September. Have you remembered that you need to incorporate some fun into your lifestyle. Humor, relaxation and appreciating life are ways of keeping a healthy mental attitude.

What are you going to do today to have some fun?


I am going to attempt to leave work on time and spend some quality time with my hubby. I am going to leave my housework until tomorrow and enjoy the sunshine and relaxing.

Joyce and I were having a lovely lunch at Taco Bell, until we were ready to come home, but the car wasn't, SIL came and got it going, but after I got it back home it wouldn't start again, he tried a new battery and that didn't help so is now off to get his jack, more tools and things to put the car up on so he can put on a new starter, which will save us a garage bill. Thank you Lord for SIL willing to help us out, we are blessed. Doesn't matter it's still been a good day and Joyce and I enjoyed each other's company.

We'll be having fun Sunday at DD's cookout.

Ok, it's a long weekend ahead and the end of what we acknowledge being the "summer months" and the beginning of the "fall months", what fun things have you got planned to do this weekend?

We get so busy in our lives that we often forget to take the time to just have some fun. Make today the spontaneous day of having fun. Take the time to smell the roses/coffee, or whatever will slow you down to appreciate the fact that you are alive. Enjoy the gift that today is offering you.

Hugs.

Mar 02 Fun Friday!

Shake things up a bit this weekend. Plan a "fun" thing to do either just for you for with someone else. What have you come up with?


In our house, we usually try to leave the weekends as flexible as possible, no hard and fast plans. But this is not one of those weekends. The kids and their friends are descending upon our home Saturday evening for an evening of fun. The cards are already on the table for a good game, there is wine in the cooler and I'm sure they will bring what ever they wish to drink. The extra chairs will be hauled up from the basement and the evening will unfold as it is meant to happen. We are so blessed.

Hugs,
Wanda

Dec 9...Yep, let's shake things up a bit and have a FUN FRIDAY

As Shirl mentioned yesterday, this is sometimes a stressful time of year for many of us. Your challenge today is to choose one "FUN" thing to do today. Laugh with a friend, put your feet up for a few mintues, have a treat, it doesn't matter what it is...it just has to be fun.
