FRIDAY!!! and the last hour of work!!!

Last night was a meeting - it was very important but OHHHHH so long. If I could I'd share with you the humorous version of the meeting summary my friend and I wrote but alas, I have a shred of conscience that says "no, better not..."

I don't mind the meetings by the way. I know most people will cry and wail about this and that meeting they have to go to but without these meetings how would policies be set? Without new policies, how would our organizations progress? They wouldn't. They would stay in the same place they were hundreds of years ago. Thus, to me, meetings are important enough that I will sit through them and TRY to listen attentively. Ohhhh, please don't let me sound too noble. My brother tells me that nothing escapes my face...if I'm sitting there thinking "you're repugnant and slightly lurdane" it's clearly written on my face. I'll confess right here and now, ALSO, if someone in a meeting mispronounces a word or uses improper grammar? I can't NOT laugh...I'll admit it, I'm a bit persnickety when it comes to these things.

Because it's Friday I will also share with you this gift I received after the meeting. We (my brother and I) were on our way to the car after packing everything up and getting the final details written up...we were relaxing with some sort of bawdy humor of course when I looked down and saw this:

On the ground, in the rain, in the night there it was, a shiny golden heart formed by two autumn leaves...

Somewhere in the midst of the darkness and rain of our lives is ALWAYS the golden heart that brings light...I know this to be true!

Have a good weekend my good friends!

That is so sweet! Isn't it strange how Nature plays these little tricks? Next Spring, these two love-birds will have made a little tree!
Big hugs!

That's rather amazing, given the leaves were in the shape of a heart.

You have very nice way about you and I like that. Your eye must be in tune with the world around you. I miss everything (most things anyway)

My problem in meetings is that I will give "meaningful" looks to co-workers when someone says something we don't agree with or with think is idiotic. I'm a horrible eye roller. It's a fault I live with every day.
