An Irish Blessing....and a Lovely Friday

I've arrived at the cottage waiting for Marc to get home. Its the weekend so the forecast has changed and there is a steady stream of rain...but through the screen door I can hear the raindrops softly hitting the beautiful green leaves of the big trees in my view...it is a pretty day regardless of the rain. We are having a pizza and chicken wings with a glass of wine dinner tonight. Just taking it easy..... I love Fridays....

While I was blogging earlier I came across this Irish Blessing...its so beautiful. When you open it up go to the version by Phil Coulter and Roma Downey. It goes so beautifully with what I'm seeing as I look out the large windows here...and at the lake... a lovely blessing.

I hope you too have a lovely Friday... Blessings....Judi xoxo

Being able to watch the rain sounds heavenly to me. A lot of our state received some rains last night but we only received a sprinkle....not even enough to get the sidewalk wet!!!

What a beautiful Irish blessing.♥

Ah, Judi. Rain again? So sorry about that. We actually got some early this morning and it was so needed here. Poor Darlene, just an hr away didn't get but a few drops.

Enjoy that weekend. Wonderful Irish Blessing.

Hi Judi...great you arrived safely to the cottage. I love the sound of rain on a day when you can sit around and just relax and enjoy living! It conjures up such a lovely scene in my mind! You are reminding me I have a box of wine in the kitchen...now I think I better go have a glass. LOL!
I found the name of the gal who sang on America's Got Talent and posted a link where you can watch her video!

Have a great vacation!

Judi... I will be sure and play this when I get the sound fixed on my laptop. It's been messed up for a few weeks now. Not sure why, but I'm not techy! LOL!

Blessings right back to you, my friend, and I hope you have a lovely weekend! It's about to rain here!

XO,

Sheila :-)

What a fabulous Irish Blessing. I would love to be able to watch the rain. It is so hot here and no rain in the forecast for forever. lol I wanted to let you know that the next "Cloche Party" is scheduled for Sept. 11th for the Fall season. Grab the button on my sidebar to remind you and to let your friends know. See you there. Hugs, Marty

Hope you're having a great weekend. I'm on my laptop in the kitchen, and my husband is watching a movie in the family room, so I will have to come back to click on the Irish Blessing and listen to it. laurie

Hi, Judi! Thank you so much for visiting me this weekend--it is so nice to meet you and find your beautiful blog! Love your banner--your kitty is gorgeous. Hubby & I are cat people...Our fur-boy Charlie is often featured at my place. That blessing is soooo lovely. And hope you are enjoying your vacation... Rain through a screen door...one of summer's sweetest sounds... ENJOY! I look forward to visiting here again soon. :o)

Hi Judi, your Friday night sounds heavenly. I love to watch the rain fall on vacation.

About Chris Daughtry--I've only seen him once in his side yard as I drove past his house. He really is on the road most of the time. I think people in town try to give him his privacy when they do see him. He used to be a manager in a local Honda dealership before his stint on American Idol. Lots of people in this area know him from seeing him there when they took their cars in to be worked on.

While he was competing in AI there was a big fundraiser going on in our area to help his wife be able to fly out to California to watch him compete. He's never looked back since he was voted off--I think it's actually worked out better for him that he didn't win. He's sold millions of records and shows no signs of stopping.

He seems like a very nice fellow and I hope that he's managing to balance the demands of his career and his success with his family.
