Friday's Fave Five #26

This has been one rough week health wise so I'm really looking forward to doing this as it makes me look beyond the moment of not feeling well and makes me notice those little things occuring around that brought me joy or tickled my fancy, those things that lifted me. If you are new to Friday's Fave Five, welcome. We look forward to visiting with you. If you need more info, you can go here first.




1. A listing of the Times 50 of the world's best food blogs. I'm totally enjoying working my way through this list of food blogs. I love looking at good food blogs especially ones where they take great pictures to go with the great food.

2. My new favorite candle scent: Aroma Therapy Scent - True Bliss Tangerine and Vanilla by Yankee Candle. It really is bliss. I looooove this scent. It smells just like a creamsicle. And I've especially been enjoying it as hubby has been doing some trim painting and he likes to use oil paint on that. So I light up this candle to help me forget that crazy oil paint smell.




3. My newly refinished floor. Hubby's been working on redoing the the spare bedroom now that we don't have a child in there. I'll post before and afters sometime next week but for today I'm taking note of the floor. The re-done floor is definitely on my favorites list. It turned out absolutely beautiful. I smile everytime I walk past this room now. Thanks Hubby!


4. New socks. I don't know why but new socks make my feet happy. And when my feet are happy, I'm happy. There is just something about the new, soft fresh feel. What a treat!

5. Microwaveable therapy pads. Couldn't have lived without this this week. Love the convenience of just popping it into the micro and voila a minute and a half later wonderful heat.

I hope your health improves with the therapy heat pads. Hmmm, I could use some of those myself on my shoulders.

I do wish I could burn scented candles--but The Professor's allergies don't allow it. So enjoy them for me!

Oops! I managed to post twice on Mr Linky when I corrected my url. The second one is correct!

Oh and can you husband come and install an gorgeous floor like that for me. :)

I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well. Hope you're on the mend or will be soon if you're not yet.

Those floors look great!! And those therapy pads are life-savers. Well, maybe now life-savers -- but life helpers anyway.
