Friday's Fave Five #102


Yes, I know I put #102 in the title. But I thought it would just be so much fun to confuse everyone. For all who noticed that, last week was the "official" 100th post of FFF. But the week before that was the real, technical one. But I was really and technically out of action that week for several different reasons and well, I couldn't very well party with a 100th post and not be there for my own party! That would just have been lame, or awful, or sad. Or all of the above. So technically, for real, this is "officially" the 102nd post. There are you sufficiently confused so that we may move on? :v)

So today I am officially Missing in Action also. I've taken the kids and split this joint and we've gone and took a holiday. Though hubby had to stay home and tend to a sick doggy, we went on without him. So I'm borrowing a laptop to do a very quick fave five and I figure I'll get all detailed on you next week. And I will also announce the winner of the FFF party prize next Friday. So without further ado, here we go! By the way, if you are new, you can get your details here.

Susanne's Quick Vacation Related Five:

1. Getting away.
So nice to just leave work, bills, housework and the same old, same old behind. If only for less than a week.

2. No cooking. Love to cook but it's oh so nice not to have to once in awhile.

3. Seeing something different. It's nice to just see some stuff I've never seen before even if it is touristy kinds of things.

4. Shopping! Yes, I do love to shop when on holidays. And for those of you who know me oh so well over the last few years: "Why yes, I did buy a new purse. A real nice one. Thank for asking." I'll post a pic next week when I download the camera.

5. Being with the teen and young adults. It has been fun. Though I must be honest and say I did let them go on without me a couple of nights later in the evening to do "their thing". This girl just cannot go late every night anymore.

So that's a quick wrap for me. How was your week and what are your five from this last week. Link on up if you've done a post of favorites for the week.

Karyn said...

Glad you got some 'away' time with your kids! Bet you're having a blast. Where'd you go?

I hear that voice in my head saying, "run away." My daughter mentioned at our Anniversary Party last night that we seem to be happier when we are leaving for a trip. I'm glad that you are getting away from the frame.

Yes, no cooking, no phone, or bills let the mind flow for the week.

Good quality time spent... have fun and thanks for making it possible for us to share again this week.

Melissa said...

Hi Susanne, your faves tell us you are already having fun but I still want to wish you more on your holiday! *smiles* I was also on holiday recently so I relate with your faves :) So true and just wonderful!

P.S. I hope the doggy gets well soon. Is it the most adorable one you sometimes show a photo of?

Barbara H. said...

There's nothing like getting away every now and then. It's enjoyable, and if you're like me, by the time I get home I am more than ready to get back into the routine, refreshed. Hope you return the same way! In the mean time, enjoy!

OOOOhhhhh Apple crisp has to be an all time favourite in our family. My daughter makes it all the time, my brother had it for dessert at his wedding(mom's recipe) and at this time of year we can make lots of it.

I love your FFF this week, the apple perfume bottle is so cute, as I read your post I could smell apples...

Your cobb salads sounds yummy also.

How soon we forget about some memories then you post about furniture polish and back it comes. It must be a childhood memory that takes us back to furniture polish - mine is mom used this stuff all the time, yes the smell of the room is great however she would spray it directly on the furniture and it went past onto the linoleum floors where my brother and I would sock slide for days after. Thanks for the reminder. Have a great weekend
