Friday’s Fave Five

Welcome to Friday’s Fave Five, hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story, in which we can share five of our favorite things from the last week, a wonderful exercise in looking for and appreciating the good things God blesses us with.

It’s been a pretty good week! Here are some of its high points:

1. Jesse’s birthday Sunday.

2. His lemon bundt cake with lemon glaze. Normally I’m more into chocolate, but this was a nice change.

3. A visit from my kids’ friends. I’m glad my children share their friends with us. 🙂 The young man who was the best man in Jason’s wedding and his new wife were coming to town to visit Jason and Mittu, and they came over to our house for dinner on Jesse’s birthday. It was fun to meet her and catch up with him.

4. A dental cleaning and fluoride. The favorite part of the dental cleaning is that it is over. I don’t know why I get so antsy about anything dental when a cleaning is easy compared to a root canal. I’d been having some sensitivity in one area and found it was due to recession of the gum. I’ll have to go in to have that taken care of later but as a temporary measure they put some kind of fluoride gunk on the area. It was really uncomfortable at first but feels much much better now.

5. Nice weather. We had two days of rain, but it was a fairly gentle rain, not at all stormy. Then it’s been a little cooler and more fallish a few days this week. Some of the leaves are starting to turn already.

Hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Wasn’t the rain lovely……..Huntsville got 3 inches and our yard looked like a pond but the ground soaked it up pretty quickly……I’ve loved the last couple of days of cooler temperatures ……Daughter and I went to our outdoor mall on Wednesday, it is much nicer there when it is cooler…..we had lunch on a patio in view of the lake…wonderful
    Have a blessed day,

  2. Nice that you’re getting cooler weather…wish I could say the same! Happy Birthday to your boy — and would you care to share that Lemon Bundt Cake recipe? Sounds yummy! (I have to say, I don’t know when the word “dentist” will ever be on my FFF…ha!)

    Have a great week ahead, Barbara.

  3. I love lemon bundt cakes! Happy birthday to your boy, and so glad you had wonderful company for the event.

    I’m enjoying cooler weather as well. Love this time of year!

  4. Last night my mom joined my friends and I for a movie. I think I was a teenager the last time that happened! But it was fun, as she was telling us the story of how she and my dad met, got engaged, etc. It was fun.

    I like Jesse’s cake. It looks festive.

  5. What a week of fun for you…though I agree the dentist on FFF is amusing! Jesse’s cake looks great-and he looks appreciative!

    I know my dad loves to run into my friends. He misses having them around now that I’m not around.

  6. I would take lemon over chocolate! Yum! Happy birthday to Jesse! Ugh, I’ve had a major toothache for 3 days straight. They can’t find a cavity so I’m afraid a root canal may be in my future. Bummer.
