Friday’s Fave Five

FFF fall flowersIt’s Friday, time to look back over the blessings of the week with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and other friends.

This has been an up and down week, but I still have more than five things to share, so I’ll have to choose! Here are a few favorite things:

1. Grandparent’s Day was last Sunday, and Jason and Mittu brought over dinner and dessert on Saturday night and shared a special video they had made with photos of Timothy with us and recordings of some of our voice messages. Sweet!

2. A good post-op visit with my cardiologist. I had gone into it discouraged because I had still been having some irregularities, including a five-hour afib episode last Friday. They had told me to expect some irregularities as things healed, and that the surgery itself could cause them, but I had thought that by six weeks, everything would be healed and settled. I guess that was not the case. The doctor said everything was “just the way he liked to see it,” and I see him again in 2 months. It took me a couple of days to actually feel encouraged by the visit, but at least we’re going in the right direction.

3. Fall goodies. I made caramel corn and Peanut Butter Rice Krispie treats last weekend, and Choco-Peanut Butter Dreams on Thursday. I need to lay off the baking for a while, but we’re enjoying having these in the house!

4. Little Caesar’s is not my favorite pizza of all, but every now and then that $6 Hot and Ready pizza just hits the spot. Sunday afternoon Jason and Mittu had other plans for lunch, so Jim, Jesse and I just grabbed a couple of pizzas and Crazy Bread on the way home from church for a quick lunch. I used to do big Sunday dinners, but we get home so late, I’m pretty much looking for quick Sunday meals – more time for rest that way! πŸ™‚

5. Cool weather. I love this time of year, and the relief from the heat of summer but not facing the cold of winter for a while yet. And we still have turning leaves to look forward to!

Happy Friday!

  1. So glad you had a great dr visit and that you were able to find the encouragement. Way to go on healing well.
    What a fun way to spend Grandparents Day. I can see why the video of Timothy is a keeper; a wonderful keepsake.
    My Sunday priorities have changed too. Sunday Dinner used to be a big deal. Now I value more rest instead of better food (aka home cooked).
    I hope this week continues to offer cooler weather,

  2. Praise the Lord for good doc visits!! I forgot to mention mine in my FFF so I guess I will save it for next week πŸ™‚

    Sounds like you had such a great week full of special moments.

    Enjoy the weekend

  3. Glad the doctor was able to reassure you that things are coming along. What a sweet thing for Grandparent’s Day. You have a precious, caring family! We’ve been know to do the Little Ceasar’s hot and ready in a pinch too. Not my fave either, but sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. πŸ™‚

  4. I am enjoying the cooler fall weather too. Summer was just too warm for too long this year. So glad you had encouraging news from your cardiologist. Sometimes a quick pizza to go is just the perfect thing! Have a great week!

  5. I had grandson Toby with Dad on visit this weekend was very nice now that he approaches 7 he is not a little child anymore. He surprises me he sometimes behaves already like a young man ! In Ocober I will go for a week to Amsterdam and keep an eye on him there are school holidays ! That’s the first time since he is born they asked me !! A miracle !
