Friday's Fave Five #126


It's Friday and that means time to find our blessings from the past week!  Welcome to everyone.  Guidelines are here if you are new to FFF.

1.  Nice smelling hand lotions.  I keep them all over the house.  And reach for them often.  Love the feel, love the smell.

2.  Peaceful evenings.  It's been relatively peaceful this last week, which is really nice.  A time to catch my breath, relax and catch up on all those things I got so far behind on in the last few weeks, including my bible reading plan.

3.  Mint tea.  To help with the above said relaxing evenings.

4. Crisp, clean, cool sheets.  Fresh sheets on the bed are one of my all time favorite things  (cue music and Julie Andrews singing).  And yes I love them cool even in the winter.

5. Longer days.  Sure feels great not having it pitch dark when I wake up and dark before I even get off work.


What were your favorite things from the past week?  Do a post and sign on to Mr. Linky so that we can come and visit.  I wish you all a great weekend!

I'm so glad you're having quieter evenings! And yes, mint tea helps. Have a great weekend, Susanne, with more relaxation, daylight, and mint tea.

Everything is nice except mint tea ! I hate it ! It reminds me when I was a child and sick my grandma gave me mint tea ! Every since I think I am sick if I drink mint tea, lol !

Peaceful evenings are often some of the best moments anyone could have in their week. So glad you have them.
Hand lotions are crowding my drawer at work :) Oh, I love mint tea!

Nice calming and soothing list this week. So glad your week has been less hectic. I forget how much I like good hand lotion. i am all out and have been using my face cream. I need to put it on my shopping list.

I'm looking forward to peaceful evenings also, glad you had some. Sometimes people order mint tea at the tea room but not often. I have always enjoyed a good nights sleep on a clean washed winter air dried set of sheets.
Have a good weekend

I love good smelling lotion too. I meant to buy some all week but never did. I’m so glad the days are getting longer too!!! I love that. Have a good weekend.

Jerralea said...

I love all those things, too, Susanne! I'm reaching for the hand lotion as I type this!

Glad this week has been more peaceful -- I trust your mother in law is doing better. I am enjoying seeing a little more daylight each day, too.

I'm glad you have had a quieter week this week. I love mint tea, especially when it's made with fresh mint!

Karen said...

Great list, Susanne. Cool sheets, nice 'smelly' lotions and good tea. Simple things but they make life so sweet.

ellen b said...

Quiet evening, nice lotions, cool sheets, it all sounds wonderful Susanne! Have a great weekend.

Karyn said...

quieter evenings must mean your MIL is feeling a bit better?

I'm sure with you on the longer days! I noticed last week that it was still daylight at 5:30 pm and I rejoiced at that little reminder that spring is on its way!

Heather said...

ah I love lotions too! :) I usually like the darker evenings,but this year I have not. It's beginning to stay light longer here too!!

I love tea! I like Sleepy Time Vanilla !

Faith said...

I'm with ya on the quiet evenings...i had one last nite! And although I'm not a tea fan I DO like the mint tea for a late night warm drink.....and i just LOVE the fact that it's getting lighter earlier!!

Mom24 said...

I'm glad things are better. I always feel better when we start getting more daylight.

Donnetta said...

There is something so therapeutic in scented lotions, isn't there?

So thankful for some peaceful evenings for you.

And I agree, welcome, welcome to the longer days!

Continuing in prayer for you and yours...

I just put fresh sheets on the bed here too, it's always amazing how well we sleep with fresh sheets on the bed! I love how the days are getting longer and longer again, it feels like everything is slowly coming to life again! Have a great week Susanne!
