Hi everyone. Welcome to Friday's Fave Five. Wishing all my American bloggy friends a very Happy Thanksgiving. I know it was yesterday and some of you will be in the throes of Black Friday shopping but I hope you had a wonderful day being thankful for all the good things and blessings of your life. Don't know how many of you will be here to join me but have a wonderful Friday regardless.
~ Birthday Celebrations ~ It started Sunday, celebrating my hubby's birthday. Our son was able to come home on the weekend so we had our family dinner that day. He chose one of our favorite restaurants and we had a lovely dinner and wonderful time together. Then on Tuesday, his actual birthday, we went for dinner with our pastors/good friends as it was their anniversary that day and they asked us if we'd like to celebrate together. Another yummy meal and great company. Then today, Hubby's sister and husband are taking us to dinner. I better make an extra day at the gym after all these yummy celebration meals. But it was nice to have Hubby honored in so many ways by so many people.
~ On a reading roll ~ You all know that reading is one of my absolute favorite ways to relax. This month I seem to be on a roll reading some great books that I can't wait to get to after work. For November, I chose to hit my Non-fiction reading pile. I'm not a huge non-fiction reader, preferring to escape into a good fictional story, but I thought it would be fun to make a concentrated effort to knock some of those out of my to read piles and I do like a good biography. So far this month I've completed 3 biographies and am on my 4th which I should finish this weekend. That is some kind of record for me in the non-fiction department.
~ Hubby's favorite dinner ~ One of my "gifts" to Hubby on his birthday is to always cook his favorite dinner. Because we were taken out on his actual birthday, I did it the night after. It turned out perfect and he was happy, I was happy and turns out it's one of my daughter's favorite meals to so she was happy. I like making him his favorite dinner and it makes me happy to see him enjoying it so much.
~ And in blew the chinook ~ Our warm winter winds called a chinook blew in yesterday and basically raised the temperature by about 15 or so degrees (celcius) in less than a day. We were sitting at a balmy 17*C (62*F) today, a new record set. The norm is about 2*C. The trade off is the crazy wind but I'll take it. It melted all the snow and I was actually outside playing with the kids with no coat on. That's crazy for November!
~ New fave flavor of yogurt ~ I came across a new flavor of yogurt while grocery shopping last week and I it made it into my cart with no hesitation. And it didn't disappoint. I loved it. A little granola on the top and oh my. So good! It says limited edition but I hope it's around awhile! A long, long while. Chai Latte makes me happy!
What are your favorite blessings from last the last week?
