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.

Fridays do seem to come around rather quickly! It’s time for another pause to remember how God has blessed this week.

1. Jesse’s move went well. Rain was forecast for the day, but, thankfully, none fell while we were unloading. Jason came over to help. I mostly unpacked and washed the dishes, cookware, etc. that Jesse had bought or been given the last few years. It’s fun to see him excited about having his own place.

2. My daughter-in-law cooked up a storm last weekend. She brought dinner over here a couple of nights, then made several things for Jesse to just heat-and-heat. He won’t need to cook anything but these for at least a week.

3. Pi Day. Since the date 3.14 is the designation for pi—it’s a good excuse to have pie. Yes, we’re silly. πŸ™‚ I didn’t even take a picture since my Facebook memories showed we’d had the same menu the last several years: Hamburger Pie, salad, and Chocolate Pretzel Pie. Here’s the picture from a couple of years ago—they looked the same this year:

4. Industrious Timothy. Jason texted me one day this week that Mittu had a migraine and laid down for a while. Timothy entertained himself while Jason worked and checked on him at intervals. One time Jason came out and saw Timothy dusting the blinds, and he said he had also swept the stairs.

5. Jesse’s first laundry visit. πŸ™‚ He bought a washer and dryer, but they won’t be delivered for a couple of weeks. We had invited him to do laundry here even before he bought his own appliances. It was fun to have dinner together an catch up on his week.

Bonus: COVID vaccines. Jim’s company has sponsored a few vaccination sessions in conjunction with a local pharmacy for those in certain age groups or with certain physical conditions. Both of us had health issues that qualified us. This last session included the kind of vaccine we wanted, so we went ahead and got them. Normally I’m a little wary of vaccines, since many people I know with transverse myelitis, the illness I had, contracted it after a vaccine. But, all things considered, after doing our research, we felt the risks involved with the vaccine were less than the risks of getting COVID. Everything went well, and we didn’t have a very long wait. We didn’t have problems afterward except a sore arm for a couple of days.

And that wraps up another week! What’s something good from your week?

  1. Your daughter in law really takes the cake — how wonderful to share all that cooking! I’m so glad your son got settled in well πŸ™‚ And yay on the vaccines. I, too, read about transverse myelitis being a possible side effect. But if you already have it … Hopefully you’ll feel more secure now doing more things. This week — I was excited when one of my piano students who competed in a virtual competition with a piano piece, earned a gold medal. Last year she earned a silver, so this was especially nice πŸ™‚

  2. Wowzers all that good food! Both the heat and eats and the pies! Yum! Glad to hear the move went well and the rain stayed away. Glad you were able to get a vaccine you were comfortable with. Had my hubby all booked in for a vaccine only to have them cancel it the next day due to delivery issues. I don’t qualify yet but hopefully soon.

  3. How wonderful of your DiL to do all that cooking for Jesse! Glad he was able to move into his own place. that must be a good feeling!

    I love that little Timmy was so helpful around the house. What a sweet boy! Can I borrow him??!! hahahah

    You asked about an antibiotic for sinusits. My telemed visit with a doc covering for my doc who is on vacation this week said they no longer rush to antibiotics as MOST sinus infections are viral not baceterial. I had no symptoms of bacterial (thick mucus, fever, ear pain, throat pain, runny nose). Mine is DRY meaning the nasal passages are clogged and the pain is pounding across my forehead. Add to that, two popped blood vessels in my eye in one month and I got a little fearful so i’m seeing eye doc on Monday (took a sick day) and then if sinus pain stil persistant on Tuesday, I will run in after work to see my doc who will be back. I might need an antibiotic but most docs no longer give them until you’ve had the pain for more than a week. I’m on day 6.

    I hope you enjoy a warm, relaxing weekend! Good news about your vaccine.

  4. Mittu is amazing! All those meals for Jesse are a big blessing for him.
    I love that Timothy is learning to be industrious and to help. Those are good life skills.
    We skipped Pi Day because I like pie for my birthday which is just three days later. But, you know, pie for both days would be yummy, too.
    I’m glad you are doing well after the vaccinations.

  5. I love how organized your d-i-l is to make those dinners for Jesse! I need her to leave some of those in my freezer. πŸ™‚ Glad you were able to get your vaccine. Alabama opens it up to those 55 and above beginning March 22, and I have an appointment on March 22. I’m thrilled.

  6. Wow. That is some serious organized cooking and such a blessing to you all!
    Love Timothy’s participation in the household chores.
    Glad to hear you could get the vaccine piece out of the way!
