Friday’s Fave Five

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

Here are a few of my favorite things from the last week:

1. Lunch with a friend. A joyous time of talking together and a wonderful lunch – an entree I had not tried before and loved. (So much, in fact, that I ordered it again yesterday when my son and I got take-out to bring home!)

2. A church potluck. Good stuff, good times. Added bonus: I’ll spare you the details, but I had to adjust what I was making from the recipe’s instructions to work around the time constraints, and I was concerned about it being not done enough or overdone. But it came out just right! Thank you, Lord!

3. Time with the grandson while his parents went out on a date. Among other things, he and his granddad made slime and put together and flew a balsa wood plane. His parents brought over frozen mini tacos and Mexican rice for an easy dinner (and one that he likes).

4. Getting some “extra” cleaning tasks done – those that are occasional rather than weekly or monthly.

5. Pill sorters. Sometimes it’s the little things. I used to keep a running list of what pill I was taking at what time, otherwise I could never remember. I used one of these containers that divides your medicine into different days of the week for a trip, and I have been using it ever since.

Bonus: The first day of spring! One of my favorite days of the year! Even though this winter was not as bad as previous ones, there were enough bone-chilling cold days and bleak landscapes to make me long for spring. I don’t have my spring decorations out just yet – hopefully this weekend.

Happy Friday!

  1. I’m glad you had lunch out with a friend this week and that you tried something new and really enjoyed it! I tend to order the same things all the time so next time we eat out I think I will try something new.

    It looks as if Timothy and his granddad had a good time when he was over this week! I loved seeing the pictures.

    Getting those “extra” cleaning tasks done is always a bonus. I hope to finish up in our bedroom today and tomorrow and then I will have just one room downstairs to tackle with the extras.

    Spring has been lovely this week…but I see snow flurries coming down right now. 🙂

  2. Lunches with friends are such a treat. I have several friends that I “lunch” with now and then — really, it is like free therapy to me. I’m so glad you got to do that this week! I just love all the things you and your husband do with Timothy. He is such a loved child. I, too, love the first day of spring. So much hope abounds.

  3. Oh, I love your spring header image. Spring is my favorite season, too, though I don’t have special decorations. Mini tacos and rice — what a perfect easy meal to accompany play time. Your food discoveries and solutions make great faves 🙂

  4. oh I love trying new entrees. It’s getting harder now that I”m mostly plant based….so many restaurants still aren’t on board with serving entrees minus meat/animal fats. UGH. But when I come across one, I try it! Glad you found a good meal with a friend.

    Oh how fun to do the slime and airplane with grandpa. That wil lbe a good memory for little Timothy. MMMM….mini tacos and mexican rice…sounds good!

    I’m SO thankful Spring has Sprung!! (although day got colder again!!)

  5. Lunch out with friends is always an uplifting blessing in a week. Now I’m curious what entree you had. LOL. What a fun thing to do with Timothy. Such a precious time. I need to get on those “extra” cleaning tasks! Maybe the nicer weather will be a motivator.
