Friday’s Fave Five

Here we are at the last Friday of June. I enjoy this pause on Fridays with Susanne and friends at Living to Tell the Story to recount some of the blessings of the week.

I’m running a little late today due to an appointment this morning.

1. Father’s Day. We had a nice time with the family, eating ribs and cheesy potatoes and apple pie.

2. Father’s Day breakfast. Jason and Mittu brought over quiche, hash browns, and sausage for Father’s Day breakfast, and then stayed for our church via Zoom and dinner and presents afterward.

3.Sewing buttons on is not a favorite activity, which is probably why I had a stack of items needing that attention. I determined I was going to take care of them this week. Once I got set up, it didn’t take very long.

4. Lactose-free ice cream. I don’t have ice cream much through the year, but it often hits the spot in the summer. Once I became lactose intolerant, I didn’t have ice cream for a number of years. I’m thankful there are lactose-free versions now.

5. Naps. I think I’ve had one every day this week.

How has your week been?

  1. I’ve stopped eating most dairy as well…not necessarily for lactose issues (although I have some) but because dairy is just SOOO not good for our bodies. We really weren’t meant to drink cow’s milk if you think about it 🙂 We have switched to almond milk ice cream and it’s so much easier to digest and often has less sugar! and it’s so creamy. we found the coconut milk ice cream a little grainy so we stick with almond milk kind.

    I love that your son brought over breakfast on Father’s day…..sound delish!!

    yay for naps! Maybe i”ll take one next week now that i’m on vacation from teaching! (well until 6 July anyways)

    I so often put off sewing buttons back on. sigh…i need to do better with that!!

    • I don’t know–the Bible talks about drinking milk. 🙂 My husband is allergic to almond milk. so that’s out for us. Plus I find almond milk itself thin and unappetizing. But none of us really drinks milk by itself. My husband is the only one who eats cereal. I have just a few recipes that require milk.

  2. Aww sounds like a nice Father’s Day. Glad you got the sewing done – I’m with you, I put off fiddly things until they mount up but they do usually take less time than I anticipate. Good to find an ice cream you can eat, especially in the hot weather!

  3. Yay for naps and lactose free ice cream! So glad Father’s Day was good for your family. It’s always good to get some of those pesky chores like sewing buttons on taken care of. Have a good weekend.

  4. Sounds like Jim had a very delicious Father’s Day! My daughter has introduced me to some good tasting dairy free ice creams lately. Some I like, some I find very sweet.

  5. I love naps! Especially Sunday after worship, they are crucial, some weeks I take naps every day. I find they rejuvenate me. Most days when I do nap, I set an alarm, because I do not want to waste time, but every now and then it feels good to say, I’ll get up when I am good and ready, lol.
    Lots of good things in your post to celebrate.

  6. No dairy for me as I eat mostly whole food plant based (healthy vegan). Once in a while I will have sorbet. Yum!
    I love how attentive your son, dil, and Timothy are to you. Every week, you can post something they have done with or for you.
    Have a good week!
