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. Jason’s one-billionth second. Somehow my son Jason had determined a while back that his one-billionth second of life would occur this week. So Mittu, his wife, cooked up a little surprise celebration and asked us over for it. Fun!

My grandson had not known we were coming, and he was out with his dad in the front yard riding his tricycle as we approached the house. As soon as he realized it was us, he started pumping his arms up and down, then started tapping my door after we parked, and gave me a hug as soon as I got out of the car. There’s nothing like being so warmly greeted by a sweet little boy.

2. Good news. My oldest son is looking to buy his first home, and we’ve enjoyed reports that the process is coming along. Especially good was that his credit number was better than when he first looked at it – turns out if you have a dispute over a charge on your credit card, that card isn’t listed in your credit report. Thankfully, on the second check, his number was back up there where it should be.

3. An insulated drink holder. I recently discovered this. My soft drinks tend to lose their coldness too soon. I don’t like to use ice, because it dilutes them. This helps!

4. More out-of-the-ordinary tasks accomplished. I don’t spring clean per se, but lately I’ve noticed my kitchen cabinets looking dusty inside and out. Last Saturday I cleaned the outside of all of them. I’m taking the insides a bit at a time and have gotten most of the upper cabinets done. It’s a nice feeling to be getting that done.

5. Fluffy pillows. I *love* how my pillows feel just after I’ve washed and dried them.

Happy Friday!

  1. I love fluffy pillows too!! Cleaning cupboards is actually on my to do list for over my spring break. I do a thorough spring cleaning every April and this year I’m trying to get it all done in two days so i can have some fun the rest of the break.

    How fun to be greeted by your grandson that way!!

    I haven’t had soda in over 20 years but that cup holder is so cute holding yours!! ( i challenge you to research just what soda has in it…….😀) it’s one of the leading causes of tooth decay and obesity. 😢

    Enjoy the weekend!

  2. You’ve reminded me that I’ve a few cupboards left to give a good wiping out to. Feels so good when they are nice and dust and crumb free. Timothy’s greeting made me smile. What a sweet boy. All the best to your son’s house hunting. An exciting thing purchasing your first home.

  3. Great news about the first home buying! And that is so interesting about the 1 billionth second of life to celebrate! It is fun being greeted by grandchildren. Such a blessing!

  4. Loved it that Mittu planned the surprise celebration for Jason. And Timothy being so excited to see Grandma just blessed my heart. Brought back memories of when our grandson was Timothy’s age and he saw us at the airport when we went to pick them up for a missions conference.

    Good feeling for having those cupboards cleaned. I found that just doing a section at a time like you are doing is really a good way to do it because I don’t feel overwhelmed.

  5. What an interesting thing to celebrate! And it’s always fun surprising Grandkids. You have reminded me that my cupboards need cleaning! Have a good weekend.
