It’s Friday, time to look back over the blessings of the week with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and other friends.
Well, we’re more than halfway through October already – more like 2/3 of the way! Here are some favorite parts of the last week:
1. Lunch with my aunt and uncle who live across town. We’ve been keeping in touch via email and trying to make plans to get together. They’re very busy and travel a lot. But it finally worked out last week. I always love time with them.
A bonus with this one was having apple cider. I don’t have it often – usually just at our pumpkin-decorating time plus sometimes if an outdoor festival is serving it. But at those times it really hits the spot.
3. Timothy’s first “Boo in the Zoo.” The event itself was a disappointment in some ways (the animals weren’t out! I thought seeing them was the main point of having this at the zoo. Plus different areas had very loud raucous music going on, not something kids who are already ramped-up need. Mittu said that everyone coming out of one area like that was agitated, parents and kids alike.) But it was fun to see the kids in costumes and to see Timothy’s reaction.
4. Ticking things off the to-do list, especially after feeling like I wasn’t getting anything accomplished last week.
5. Hearing from a couple of long-time blog friends after an extended blog absence – within a couple of days from each other.
Our cool fall weather is back, and that’s a delight as well.
