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.

The first day of May! Turning the calendar to a new page is one of life’s little pleasures for me. But this month, especially, I look forward with hope for safe first steps in returning to normalcy.

Meanwhile, here are some highlights of the last week:

1. Working through a to-do list around the house not only got things done, but felt good.

2. Zoom Bible study. Our ladies only get together for Bible study about once every six weeks. We had our first attempt to do so via Zoom on Saturday, and everything went well. My husband always set things up for our church meeting, and I had thought he would be nearby in case I needed any help for this. But he was working on a project outside. It wasn’t hard at all to figure out, though. Our leader’s Internet cut out near the end, but one lady called her and put her on speaker so she could finish out the session with us.

3. A refurbished basketball goal. I’m not sure why we hung on to the basketball goal that my kids had. The rim was oval instead of round after being laid down for so long. The bottom, which is supposed to be filled with water to provide enough weight to keep the goal upright, had sprung a leak a long time ago. It has been out behind our shed for years. But my husband decided to fix it up for Timothy. He used a car jack to fix the rim, painted the whole thing, and bought a new net and balls. He filled the base with sand instead of water, so it shouldn’t leak as easily. It looks really nice now, and Timothy and his family came over to try it out last weekend.

4. Chocolate chip butterscotch brownies. Mmmm. I’m not sure why they’re called butterscotch. They don’t taste like butterscotch. But they taste good. 🙂 I only make half a batch for just the three of us.

Butterscotch brownies5. A great movie. I just finished a delightful movie over several mornings of stationary bike riding that left me smiley and teary at the same time: This Beautiful Fantastic. Thanks to Laura for recommending it.

Bonus: quick return of power when it went off during a storm, Face Time calls.

What’s something good from your week?

  1. Good morning. I love your faves from last week. Those brownies look especially good. Accomplishing things from my to-do list also makes me feel good. Have a good Friday and a pleasant weekend. Stay well!

  2. That movie looks fun. I’ll have to see if Neflix has it. I’m sure Timothy will get many hours of fun with the basketball net. The brownies look good. Is it made with brown sugar? Maybe that is why it’s called butterscotch. We are using Zoom also for our small group meetings. My internet dropped one night too kicking me out, but Praise God help was only a phone call away to the lady who does the hosting of all the groups and puts us in our breakout rooms. It’s been an adventure doing it this way but I’m thankful for the technology.

    • Yes, the bar cookies have brown sugar and butter, which probably accounts for the butterscotch designation. I don’t like butterscotch, but these don’t have that distinctive flavor. I watched the movie on Amazon prime and found it on YouTube, but not Netflix.

  3. I hope that Timothy gets lots of fun with the basketball net. That recipe looks nice and easy but yes I agree butterscotch is a bit misleading. Glad you didn’t lose power for too long.

  4. So where does one find the movie?? Is it on netlifx or you tube in length?? Is it free? It looks so good!!
    Love those kind of brownies and it’s been a very long time since I’ve made them. You’ve given me an idea for tomorrow mornings baking!!

    Yay for online zoom Bible studies and for fixed basketball hoops!!

    Enioymthe weekend!
