Friday's Fave Five #96

** Updated with Mr. Linky**
Sorry everyone. I'm not sure what I did with Mr. Linky, but here it is.

***Updated. Again!*** Well apparently Mr. Linky is down due to emergency maintenance. So just let us know in the comments if you have a post up. Guess we'll do it that way this week. We shall go with the flow. :v)

Hi everyone! How was your week? It's Friday so time to look back over the last week and find those five favorites things whether you had a great week or not. There are small subtle blessings if we but take the time to look even on those rougher weeks. Share them with us. You can go here if you need details.

1. Amazing clouds.

There is just something about the clouds and skies that really draws me and we've had quite a show lately with really different cloud formations. The layering and swirls on this particular night was unreal. I couldn't capture the 3D effect they were giving near well enough.


2. Beautiful Sunsets
. The colors this summer have been amazing. I can't get enough of it. And it disappears so quickly. I have to enjoy every second I can get.


3. Blue skies breaking through storm clouds. A metaphor for life.


4. Leaving the skies behind now, this pudgy little fella.


Yeah, must be nice, he's chasing his morning nap with an afternoon nap. But when he's awake he's darn cute and makes me happy. Well, to be honest when he's sleeping he's cute too. But this sleeping beauty snores to beat the band. Big time. So the awake cuteness edges out the sleeping cuteness by a hair.

5. The humble little pansy. Beautiful in her simplicity. It makes me smile. This year a few new colors are showing off in my flower bed. This lovely lady dressed in lemon sherberty yellow. Is sherberty a word? No? Well, it is now, I declare it.


And this pretty lavender girl. Sigh. Love the different shades of lavender.

So what has made you smile, warmed your heart, cheered you up or floated your boat this week? If you do a post, please link on up so we can come and visit.

Happy Weekend everyone!

BTW did you forget the linky thing ?

Hazel said...

Thanks a lot for sharing the beautiful images. I can't get over the napping pooch. You ask, 'what made you smile, cheered you up?' He's one of my answers :) Adorable!

P.S. Are we having the linky today? Just wondering.

It really is the simple things.
