Friday's Fave Five #225
Welcome to Friday's Fave Five, everyone. Hope you've all had a good week and it was easy for you to list your five blessings that you are choosing to share. And if it wasn't so good, I hope you will still join us in looking for blessings no matter how small. If you are new click on over here first and take a peek at the guidelines and then come on back and jump right in.
1. My first blessing some might scoff at but I'm loving the light fluffy snow that has been falling all day. So beautiful. I'm not too with it with the camera lately so totally didn't take a picture but if was lovely. Not so lovely to drive in, very slick as it got packed down, but as it fell it looked like a postcard. I will admit right here I love snow. Okay, moving on before I get booed. :v)
2. Everyone was excited to see this on the stove for supper last night. I haven't made it in forever and I had forgotten how delicious it was. This time I only had 2 potatoes on hand so that is what I used and it turned out delish. I love a recipe you can adapt to what you have. Next time I'm going to try to use a regular cheddar cheese rather than a processed cheese in my effort to eat healthier. Again gotta love a recipe that you can adapt.
3. A good night's rest. I woke up this morning actually feeling like I had had a great night's sleep. A feeling I hadn't really had since the beginning of the year. What a difference it makes to my day feeling refreshed!
4. "The Artist". I nabbed it at the library when I saw it because I thought it would be a film my mom would enjoy. She doesn't really go to the theater anymore but still enjoys a nice move. I had my reservations. I had no idea how a black and white silent movie about the silent movie era could possibly be entertaining and engaging much less how on earth it won it won best picture at the academy awards last year. But I was curious. So imagine my surprise when not only my mom but hubby and I all really enjoyed it. Unbelievably it had not one spoken word, and not a lot of written screen displays of what they were saying and yet we were never bored throughout the show. And we followed the story line very easily. To act out the story, and not a "slapstick", simple kind of story at that, but a very emotional one, without a word is a great credit to the actors and director. Definitely worth our couple of hours of time.
5. The weekend coming up. No plans except to relax and maybe spend a couple of gift certificates. I love gift cards as gifts! So much fun to spend them. Can hardly wait!
What are your favorites from the week?
