Friday’s Fave Five

Another week has flown by, and I don’t have much to show for this one. I think I am recuperating from last week when we had family here and were doing something almost every day. 🙂 Here are some favorite parts of this week:

1. Fresh, clean sheets and pillows plumped up from being washed and dried. One of my favorites of life’s little pleasures.

2. A good doctor visit for Jesse. I am ashamed to say he has not had a physical in the three years we have been here, and several before that were only sports physicals. Thank God he has been remarkably healthy. We finally got that done, and except for his lab work being a bit low in a couple of areas, easily remedied, everything is fine.

3. A belated Father’s Day. Jim didn’t want to open gifts or anything when my family was here over Father’s Day, so we focused on my step-father that day, and honored Jim this last Sunday. It’s fun to have the family all here (Jeremy via FaceTime), to get him some things he was wanting and a couple of things he was not expecting.

4. Grilled ham steaks. I had gotten these for when my family was going to be here but ended up not using them, so Jim grilled them last Saturday, and because we had extra we had enough to use for several days. Yum!

5. Leftovers. I adapt some meals for just the three of us, but others I make as I always have and use the leftovers for lunch or sometimes even for another dinner. Thankfully my family doesn’t mind – depending, of course, on exactly what’s left over (some leftovers are left until they grow fuzzy stuff). We’ve had some that everyone liked this week, besides the ham, and it’s nice to have an easy meal just heating up leftovers, especially on Wednesday nights when our church has prayer meeting and meal time is a bit rushed.

Hope you have a great Friday!

  1. Grilled ham steaks sound lovely as a left over. Actually any leftover sounds lovely cuz that means I don’t have to cook. 😉

    So happy to hear that Jesse’s physical was a good report. It seems like you can’t take anything for granted.

    How lovely that you all extended the Father’s Day celebration to focus on one father at a time. And how lovely that all the family was there too.

  2. Love grilled ham. I’ll have that for leftovers anyday! Very sweet of Jim not to want the focus on him on Father’s Day but to pass it on to your step father. Fresh sheets make me happy!

  3. We really are so blessed to enjoy so many simple pleasures– fresh bedding is my fave, too.

    What a good solution to celebrating Father’s Day with more than one father present! Sounds like your meal planning is working 🙂

I love hearing from you and will approve your comment ASAP.
