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 week of April, 2021 is in the books. I hope yours was a good one. Here are some highlights from mine:

1. Easter. Though we think of the resurrection of Christ through the year, it’s special to focus on its meaning on Easter Sunday. And we enjoy the fun parts of Easter as well. All the family but my oldest were able to come, and we Facetimed with him. We enjoyed a good dinner and dessert, and the kids had fun with hunting Easter eggs. Then everyone left and Jim and I crashed. 🙂

2. Watching Timothy while his parents were getting their COVID shots.

3. My late package came in! I almost never have trouble getting Amazon packages, but three of them disappeared somewhere between Amazon and here recently. One contained a sewing machine cabinet I had ordered to replace the desk I’ve been keeping my machine on. I know none of the packages were delivered and then stolen because we have a camera on our doorbell and would have seen that—plus Amazon still shows the packages as out for delivery. I got refunds for the other two, but held out on the cabinet, hoping it would come in. It finally did Thursday afternoon!

4. Jim and Jesse being willing to put the cabinet together. We had already asked Jesse if he’d be willing to help put it together, and he was. Jim has said that Jesse is good at figuring out the instructions and multitudes of parts of projects like this. As I am writing now, Thursday afternoon, the plan is for Jesse to come over for dinner after work and then start on the cabinet. If they get it done tonight, I’ll take a picture.

Update: They did get it finished!

I don’t know why the carpet looks gold in the top photo: it’s beige. Anyway, I am looking forward to transferring my sewing stuff over.

5. A successful grocery trip. Though we’re not experiencing the shortages of early pandemic days, I often can’t find everything I’m looking for in stores. This week I had to go to two places, but found what I wanted.

What’s something good from your week?

  1. I loved that post-family-gathering-crash 🙂 I feel the same. Though the gatherings are always enjoyable, it’s so good to relax afterwards.

    The cabinet looks like it’s worth the wait! All the helpful shelves swing out nicely when you’re sewing.

    Pandemic or no, it’s terrific to find all you need without a million trips! Happy weekend, Barbara.

  2. Love that Jesse came over to help after a day of work…you definitely raised him right 🙂

    YAY for your son and DiL getting the vaccine!
    That cabinet is so pretty…..
    Makes me want to get something new for my living room….

    I felt the same way on Easter. Loved that we enjoyed a big dinner together (Claire is still at UNH so couldn’t come home so just the 3 of us) after church but then Courtney wanted to do our family room (Finish spring cleaning it with me so How c ould I say no) and THEN We crashed with a hot cup of tea and a good book!

    HAPPY Weekend.

  3. I’ve tried commenting three times…let’s hope this takes…..had to change my pw twice to get your site to accept me! not sure why. Anyways….
    Yay for that pretty cabinet and Jesse’s help!
    Love that your son and DiL have their vaccine!!
    I felt same way about Easter Sunday…crashed after church/big dinner/dishes and re-arranging the family room. Watched movies and read good books and went for a nice walk on a beautiful day.

    Happy weekend!

  4. Wow, nice looking cabinet. That was worth the wait. And so good for Jesse to come over and help.
    After church, lunch and a hike, I crashed on Easter Sunday evening, too.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Wow I can understand why you held out for that cabinet. Looks great. Glad you were able to spend Easter with most of your family. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  6. How fun to get that new cabinet! It will be great transferring things over. Hmmmm, this week I enjoyed “spring break” from teaching piano. Although I enjoy doing it, it was definitely great to have a week off.

  7. It seems that lots of us have had trouble with Amazon deliveries the past year. I’m sure they’ve been disturbed by it too. They used to be so dependable; hopefully that will return one day. Glad you got your cabinet finished! It looks great.

    I still have trouble finding certain things at the grocery store too. And it’s not always what I expect to be hard to find. ha.

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