It’s Friday again! I haven’t gotten half of what I wanted to get done accomplished, and had a bit of a stomach bug for a few days, but otherwise it has been a good week. Here are some favorite parts of it:

1. New CDs. I’ve been wearing out the new CD from the Steve Pettit Evangelistic Team called Before You Now (I posted one song from it on Sunday), and just a couple of days ago I received Be Still by the Galkin Evangelistic Team. The latter has two CDs, one instrumental hymns and spiritual songs, the other those same songs as a backdrop to someone reading Scripture. I’ve listened to the instrumental one several times over already. Both have greatly ministered to my heart.

2. Our favorite pizza place just opened a new location near us!

3. Quiche. For some reason I don’t think of it often, and when I do, I’m like, “Oh, wow! Yeah! We haven’t had that for a long time.” The one I make is relatively simple, but it was very good as a somewhat mild meal when my stomach wasn’t feeling so good this week. And I had the leftovers for breakfast this morning. 🙂

4. More sorting and organizing this week.

5. A book from A Lego a Day. I don’t remember how I came across this site, but I loved it from the first day I read it. Legos were some of my guys’ favorites long after they stopped playing with other toys. Dan Phelps started out by making photos of Lego figures in different scenarios with funny captions and posting one a day for a year. Then he went for another year. Now he has put some of them in a book called The Best So Far. I love that many of my favorites are in books form so I’ll always have them if the site ever gets taken off. Honestly, the book is a little pricy, but he has a 20% coupon just now that helps. And I was delighted to see that one of my favorite is there about putting on a happy face. (No, this is not a paid or a requested ad. I’m just a big fan who was delighted to get the book. 🙂 )

  1. The Lego book is cute. My two kiddos loved their legos too. I especially like the photo about the little lego man peeking out from the egg shell.

    I’v done some decluttering too this week: bookshelves and a box went to Goodwill with miscellaneous items.

    Quiche I forget about that one too. And I normally have all the ingredients. I hope you are on the mend now, Barbara.

  2. I like that Lego site and Dan’s clever photos. Have noticed how pricey Blurb books were, but at least you can get at these fun photos. And how timely that you got new CDs that are just what you like. I love how good it feels to have gotten some sorting and organizing 🙂

  3. That Lego site is fun. I used to visit it often and then sorta forgot about it. I’ll have to go catch up.

    Love quiche! Haven’t made it in awhile. Thanks for the reminder.

    Gotta love when a pizza place opens nearby!

  4. I’ve never been to that Lego site — LOVE it! The book looks great! When I get a CD I love that ministers to me, I just keep playing it over and over. Hope you have a great week ahead.

  5. I’m going to have to check out this Lego a Day site as my oldest is now wrapped up in those things!

    I love new music CDs.

    Sounds like you had a rather peaceful week. Hopefully you are enjoying a relaxing weekend on top of that.

I love hearing from you. I've had to turn on comment moderation. Comments will appear here after I see and approve them.
