Friday's Circle of Friends - September 21

circle of friendsIt is definitely true. The older you get the quicker time seems to fly by. I mean think about - in 3 months we'll be talking about Christmas.

This week in our city it is still quite warm and the sun has been shining everyday. It is quite beautiful. Actually I can't remember the last time it has rained here. The silly thing is, in about a month from now, if not sooner (I hope not) it will be snowing. For whatever reason we rarely get much in the way of Spring or Fall weather. I wish we did because I really enjoy mild temperatures versus too hot or too cold. But here we go straight from "oh it is so hot out" to "man, is it snowing already?".

Anyways, it has been a busy week online, and here are some very interesting posts written by some wonderful friends. If you missed them, take a minute or so to see what everyone has been up to.

      Thanks for the mention! I appreciate it. I know what you mean about Christmas being around the corner. I have a friend on Facebook that posts an updated number of days until Christmas once a week, and has been since July.

      I just read your comment on Money Beagle. How close do you live to BobLo? You can't be far from Detroit at all!

      By the way, stop mentioning Christmas already. You might be the reason all the malls are already starting to post Christmas stuff?
