Friday’s Fave Five

FFF daisies

Friday’s Fave Five is hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story, who invites us to share five of our favorite things from the last week. It’s a wonderful exercise in looking for and appreciating the good things God blesses us with. Click on the button to learn more, then go to Susanne’s to read others’ faves and link up your own.

I’m running late once again! Here are some highlights of the last week:

1. A visit from a friend of my son and daughter-in-law’s. He stayed with them last weekend and they all came here for dinner after church Sunday. I have this tendency to second-guess myself, and I was thinking maybe going to “the parents'” seemed obligatory and he would rather have spent the time with them at their place, but when he saw us at church he gave me a spontaneous hug and seemed glad to see us, so I was reassured. 🙂

2. A three-day weekend. Labor Day is one of those low-key holidays – not much expectation besides a cook-out (another fave! Grilled burgers!). We even brought Grandma out to the patio for dinner and she seemed to enjoy it though she tuckered out pretty quickly.

3. A relatively quiet week after a few busy ones…although this seemed busy in it’s own way as well and I didn’t get nearly as much done as planned. But at least there weren’t a bunch of deadlines or appointments, etc.

4. Take-out dinner. My dear husband indulged me in a requested night off from the kitchen and brought home take-out Chinese food. He actually didn’t get my text til after he got home, so he had to go back out again to pick it up, poor guy. 🙂

5. Disability aids. I often amazed when we encounter some snag in Grandma’s care and think of what would help, search the Internet, and lo and behold, someone has made it and someone else sells it. 🙂 The latest need was a safety belt for a shower chair. We had been using a gait belt, but it was just short enough to be difficult to attach and didn’t seem very secure. We used the one designed for the shower chair this morning, and it worked perfectly.

Hope you have a great weekend!

  1. It sounds like a good week of shifting into fall. Even a change in the variety of busyness can feel like a rest!

    Thanks for your comments on my blog lately.

  2. Always love a holiday with grilling out! Sometimes the simple things like grilled hamburgers or hot dogs seem the best.

    You gotta love take-out with a husband willing to go get it!

    Seems like you can find anything you need on the internet! What a wonderful invention!

  3. I like those low-key holidays! I remember when we needed some special things for Andrew — it was amazing what you could find. Hope you have a great week ahead!

  4. I love low key holidays and Labor day is definitely one of those for us too. I love a week with no appointments too although my week coming up has something every.single.evening after work for 4 out of the 5 days. UGH!!! But I am determined to find blessings even in this busyness. LOl….enjoy your weekend!!

  5. September long weekend is one of my faves too and we usually end up grilling something too. What a great thing for your hubby to do, even after he’d already gotten home.

  6. I do like the lower-key weeks and you’ve had some wonderful blessings in the midst of one. I’m go glad you’ve found the right tools and aids to facilitate the care of your MIL. Bless you for all you do.

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