Friday’s Fave Five

Once again we’re pausing for a bit with Susanne and friends at Living to Tell the Story to recount the blessings of the week. This has been one of those weeks with much more than five faves, but I’ll try to narrow it down. 🙂

1. Having the family all together. My oldest son came in from RI for a visit last Friday night and will be here a few days more. We’ve had lots great time all together chatting, eating, playing games. Then various combinations of family members visited in smaller groups. I love it.

2. Jeremy’s birthday. I’m so glad he could be here for it.

3. Several fun outings. We went to a car show, which included a kids’ area with Nerf target shooting, balloon animals, and other similar things. Then over a couple of days we went to a BrickUniverse LEGO Fan Convention, a bubble tea place (I didn’t try it, but everyone else enjoyed theirs), a French creperie, the art museum . . . I think that’s all so far. I’ll elaborate on a couple of these on my end-of-month post or in a post of their own. It’s been nice to chill at home between outings.

4. A new critique group. I’ve been praying about finding a group to exchange writing with and get feedback from. I was invited to participate in one via Zoom and was delighted to see a few fellow bloggers there I have known a long time. We had an introductory meeting, and I am looking forward to future meetings.

5. Password is a show I watched as a kid, and there is a new iteration of it that just started airing last week. It’s a little too hyped-up, but otherwise I love the game itself.

What’s something good from your week?

  1. Hmmmm, Password isn’t familiar to me. Now I’m curious. So glad you could have a great week with family! Happy birthday to Jeremy! This week is the first week back to “regular” piano lessons with all my students. I am loving touching base with them all again.

  2. oh i remember watching Password with my parents and now my daughters and husband and I (and whatever company we have over for game night) enjoy the game. My sister Joy surprised us with it a couple of years ago as a xmas gift!

    Happy Birthday to your son.

    Sounds like you had a fun week….YUMMY….French crepes are the BEST

  3. Oh, I remember Password was a card game I saw when cleaning out roomie’s family game closet. She had fond memories! And how nice to have your son with you on his birthday — everyone pictured looks great.

    What a blessing to find a critique group with people you already know and like. I hope you find it a productive endeavor.

  4. So glad that you had a nice week, and especially that you have your son there for a visit. I hope you have a nice weekend. See you again soon!

  5. I remember loving “Password” when I was young. I didn’t know there was a new version! I’m very excited about the writing group too, especially since there are so many familiar blogging friends there like you. 🙂

  6. Sounds like a great week with those fun outings but having family together would be the best for me. Never tried bubble tea and I’m off to google Password – that’s new to me too. Have a good week.

  7. Besides the passwords needed on computers I never heard about a game Password, have to google too ! How nice to celebrate Jeremy’s birthday ! BTW I don’t scan old pictures, I take a photo and work a bit on the colors and sharpness and then it looks like new ! Better then scanning in my opinion.

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