Hello everyone! It's Friday! Are you ready to look for and share your top 5 blessings from the last week? Join in with us as we endeavour to live lives of gratefulness.
This little graphic couldn't be more true this week as the last few days have been quite chilly and rainy outside. That is when a warm drink, the couch and a good book call my name especially loud. At my house though, a cat or a dog are interchangeable and are both enjoyable! :)
2. Mother's Day. A lovely day it was. We had my mom over for lunch, I received some lovely flowersand a starbucks card and a cute tea set from my kids, and the much coveted phone calls from them. I even got an impromptu song text from my new son in law that brought a good laugh. A lovely relaxed afternoon was enjoyed by all. I felt honored indeed.
3. Strawberries. They have been really good lately and are my go to fruit at the moment. I even treated my self to one serving of "Bavarian Strawberries" (a strawberry dipped in sour cream and then dipped in brown sugar). It is amazing! Slightly defeats the all the nature's goodness of a plain strawberry but I figure I can treat myself once a season.

4. Price adjustment o workout clothes. I needed a set of new workout clothes and went and bought a pair of capris and two tank tops (workout clothes are so pricey!) only to find out they went on sale 2 days later. I went in and asked for a price adjustment and was told that the chain does not really do that but the manager was good enough to return the clothes and then resell them to me at the sale price. That was a savings of $30!
5. No more clunking in the car. Finally we got the car in to have the clunking in the back end. A new part later and a nice quiet ride again!
