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 .

The last Friday of September and the first Friday of autumn! It still doesn’t feel like autumn yet, but some trees are starting to turn color. It’s just a few degrees lower, but I sure am looking forward to cool breezes, hopefully soon. Meanwhile, here are some of the best parts of the last week:

1. Mending is not a favorite, but it does feel good to take clothes from unwearable to wearable status. I had not worn a couple of items in a long time, so it almost feels like getting something new!

2. A good report from the ophthalmologist. I hadn’t seen the eye doctor for years since our last one retired and his replacement went to a pediatric office. I seemed to have an excess of new floaters, so I wanted to make sure everything was ok with my retina. My husband’s retina detached a few years ago, and the first symptom was a lot of floaters. I was glad to hear everything was ok with my eyes.

3. Movie night Jason and Mittu rented the live-action Aladdin and brought it over to watch. I hadn’t seen the animated version, so I don’t know how it compares, but we enjoyed it a lot.

4. Cuddling with Timothy while watching the movie. He usually sits with his mom and dad or on a kid’s couch when we watch something, so it was sweet he took the initiative to sit next to me.

5. Antibiotics. My poor dear husband has had some kind of upper respiratory problems for a week and a half now. He called in for an antibiotic a couple of days ago, and it’s starting to help. He’s still pretty sick, but hopefully he’ll be well before too much longer.

Bonus: Munchkins! I was craving a donut after my eye doctor appointment, but didn’t want to go into a store with my eyes dilated (with all the bright lights. And I didn’t want to wear my sunglasses inside in public). I didn’t think we had a donut shop near, but discovered a Dunkin Donuts not too far way. I like their bite-sized assortment.

Happy Friday!

  1. I just love the picture with you and Timothy. That’s good news all around on the health front. I always procrastinate mending, but actually enjoy it once I start. Nice to have a project finished! Enjoy your weekend, Barbara.

  2. Praise God for the good report regarding your eyes!

    Hope,your husband is feeling real soon!

    Adorable pic of your grand boy and you!! My daughters watched the animated Alladin when they were little. I had no idea there’s a live action one! How fun!!

    DD donuts!!!!! I haven’t had one in a while, yummy!!

  3. I have checked my eyes each year, since my neighbor got the Macula and became nearly blind ! Fortunately it was discovered early and she got a treatment, it will never heal but at least stop the disease ! How nice that Thimothy sat next to you ! Toby also this time wanted to stay with me and not with his Dad ! That’s cute !

  4. It’s always the best to cuddle with grandchildren! I usually wait till a long winter’s night to do the mending…when I get to it at all.

  5. I didn’t even know donut shops had bite sized assortments. What a great idea.
    What a relief that your eyes are fine.
    Oh, no. I’m so sorry to hear about your husband. I hope the antibiotics work very quickly and that he’s back to his healthy self.
    How special it is to be able to cuddle with a grandchild. That’s very sweet that Timothy took the initiative to cuddle with you. I haven’t seen Aladdin yet. Hopefully soon.
    Funnily enough, I like to do mending. And I agree, the best thing is that you have “new” clothes without spending a dime.
    Have a great week, Barbara.

  6. I am not so great a getting to mending. It usually sits there for years before I finally get rid of it. Cuddles when initiated by kids are the best! That is good news from the eye doc! I have transitions lenses so it always looks like I’m wearing sunglasses inside when I first come in from outdoors for a good 5 minutes or more. Don’t know if I’ll ever get them again because of that.

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