Friday Mailbag

It's been a long time since I dipped into the Friday Mailbag!  Let's have a peek. . . 


Dear Next-Door Neighbors,

For 13 years, you have been the Very Best kind of neighbor:  Respectful.  Private.  Quiet. (Well. Except for that one time when one of your kids got the car alarm stuck at 2:00 in the morning and y'all couldn't turn it off.)  Tasteful landscaping.  Well-mannered guests at your parties.  Non-intrusive in every way. (Well.  Except for the English ivy.)

But your concrete project this fall?  Pushing it.  Because hours of jack-hammering?  Jarring.  Maybe give us a heads-up next time, huh?  (So we can leave, too.)


Dear Gmail Inbox,

Who knew . . . that it would be so easy to KonMari you!  Wow.  All those emails -- years and years of emails -- that I thought I might need or that I was too lazy to delete in the first place . . . GONE.  Just like that.

I feel so much JOY.


Dear Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs,

You're drunk.  Go home.


Dear Blog Friends,

I can't thank you all enough for your words of support and thoughtful wishes and general bolstering of my spirit after my mom's death.  You are all wonderful -- and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.


Have a great weekend!

LOVE! And, yes - sometimes those neighbors! Oh boy! And, Gmail - that is my New Year's Day tradition - empty that sucker out! It feels sooo good! XO


When we were on vacation this summer the people in the house behind us were working on the driveway. They had some type of machinery going ALL DAY LONG with the constant beeping every time it backed up. It was super annoying but I suppose they had to do it some time. I hope your jackhammer sounds are over and the project is done. Great mailbag today!


I am so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. Take care. I'm thinking about you.


OMG! Jackhammers are the worst. May your weekend be relaxing...and quiet!


Hopefully, the neighbors will give you a quiet weekend. (I love gmail!)


a clean inbox is a joyful thing :-) wishing you a peaceful, quiet weekend.
