Friday’s Fave Five

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

It’s been a fun week! Here are some of the highlights:

1. Jason’s birthday!

2. Timothy’s decorations. He taped streamers all over the house for his daddy’s birthday. In the top picture below, he asked his parents to bring in the fans from the bedrooms to blow them around.

3. Lactose-free ice cream. I didn’t have ice cream for years until this was invented. I may have had more than a couple of root beer floats and some vanilla and chocolate ice cream with Reese’s “magic shell” so far this summer.

4. A new ironing board, cover, and pad. Sometimes the little things can make a big difference. My ironing board pad was too flat to be of much use, so I got a new cover and pad. As I took off the old one, I saw that the ironing board itself was severely rusted and more bent than I had realized. So I got a new one of those as well. I don’t have to use them all that much, but when I need them, it’s great to gave good tools.

5. Timothy’s obstacle course. We don’t usually watch American Ninja Warrior, but it came on after we finished watching something else on TV, and Jason mentioned liking it. So we left it on for a bit. Then Timothy built his own obstacle course across the living room floor with throw pillows, an exercise mat, his little couch, ending with climbing over the back of our couch. I wish I had taken a picture. He ran his course several times over that night. One of the funniest moments was when, just as Timothy was climbing over the couch, Jason said, “You know, I don’t think I would have been allowed to do that when I was young.” 🙂 Probably not. Parents do loosen up a bit by the time they become grandparents. Plus, with grandkids, it’s not an everyday thing.

Happy Friday!

  2. Happy birthday to your handsome son….i love Timothy’s idea of blowing the streamers with fans!! So cute!! And yay for obstacle courses in the living room! They’re only little for a short time..l.thats Funny what Jason said!!

    Your oj and ginger ale sound refreshing 😀. I’ll have to try some when we have ginger ale in the house. We don’t really buy soda but maybe I’ll get some and try your idea!

    I love getting new tools for my home…i think i need a new ironing board cover too as mine is wearing out.

    Have a good weekend and stay cool!!

  3. Great idea for the fans to blow those streamers! Happy Birthday to Jason. Hahaha, I laughed at Jason’s comment about the obstacle course in the livingroom. That is the gift of grandparenting I think. I’ll have to tell my daughters about lactose free ice cream.

  4. Happy Birthday to Jason! What a fun time to celebrate him. And that comment about the obstacle course–yeah, he’s right. 🙂
    I usually look for sorbet–no milk at all. My favorite is raspberry.

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