Hi everyone! Welcome to Friday and the Friday's Fave Five. First off I want to say I'm sorry I missed commenting on everyone's posts from last week. There was just some family stuff happening and family came first. But onto a fresh new week! Are you ready to look back over the week and find your blessings? If so, join us!
~ family home ~ One of the reasons I was so busy was that my son, his girlfriend and daughter came home for a few days. I have not seen my son's girlfriend for 2 years! Between the heavy workload of being in nursing school and covid she just could never come for a visit, and we haven't been there because of covid. So we just hung out and had a real nice catch up time. Sunday we went to the mountains and though it was really cold it was still a great day being together.
~ Waterton ~ one of my favorite places to be. We are so blessed to have such a gorgeous national park so close by. So many trails and hikes for every skill level, beautiful scenery everywhere you turn, a lovely mountain village, lakes and waterfalls galore. It was a cold day there on Sunday but the beauty was still enjoyed. Being in Waterton always revives and destresses me. And it was nice just to get out of town for a day.
~ delicious supper made not by me ~ my son blessed us with yet another delicious dinner. I love when he visits and cooks for us because he always makes us something we don't normally have. This time it was chicken teriyaki with pineapple rice served beautifully in pineapple bowls. It looked and smelled amazing and tasted even better. I can get used to this!
Sorry for the shadow, just didn't want to sacrifice the time it took to take it into natural lighting, I wanted to sit down and eat that thing!
~ "movie" night with the girls ~ this is a rare occurrence as my youngest does not really watch a whole lot of movies and we have very different tastes and usually don't agree on one. But we found a series on Netflix that kind of caught both of our attentions and also interested my son's girlfriend so we binged quite a few episodes over a few days. It was nice just sit in their company relaxing.
~ province starting to open up ~ yesterday was stage 2 of opening up for summer. I for one am glad. While I do follow all the restrictions and regulations, I am growing weary of it all. The constant back and forth of it, so many changes for so long and not seeing my family. That is the hardest part. The toll it has taken on families, my family. I am glad we are at a point where we can start taking the steps back to "normal".
What are your favorite blessings this week?
