Friday's Fave Five #163
Hi everyone, welcome to Friday's Fave Five. Take time to reflect over your week and find those things that lifted your heart, made you smile or made you keep on keeping on. If you need details, you can take a quick trip here and then come on back. I'm feeling crummy tonight (Thursday) so as you can see my list is missing. I'll try to join in some time on Friday and then get around to visiting everyone. Meanwhile, have fun making your posts and visiting around, maybe making a new blogging friend or two.
Whew, made it here! Thanks for everyone's well wishes. Nothing major just a silly cold that won't go away for two weeks now, but it's the kind that wipes you out and in the evening it seems my ears, throat and nose just close up. Aargh. Breathing and hearing are a good thing, so in the evening I've had to take some cold meds and it knocks. me. out. Anyway, there is blessings to look for and share, which I'm sure you'd so rather hear about.
1. Fall leaves to play in. I love the fall when all my trees drop their leaves and there is a mountain of leaves for the dayhome kids to run through, jump in and throw in the air. Their laughter and literally hours of play in it are one of my favorite things to watch. I really wanted to post a picture of their fun but privacy and all that.
2. Well written, uplifting novels. Especially on the heels of a story that left me feeling very sad and unsettled. I don't necessarily always like my reads to be tied up with a pretty bow at the end of the story but it is nice sometimes.
3. A Movie night with my sis. A cheesy old black and white move from 1947, a bag of chips and a glass of ice cold coke. It's fun to poke fun at the horrible sound, the dramatic acting and blood curdling screams of old films. Especially with the company of my sister.
4. Comfort foods of fall. Chili's, stews and soups are some of my favorite comfort foods. Last week with the chilly weather coming upon us, I made a big pot of delicious turkey soup (from the Thanksgiving turkey carcass). I can't wait to get to all sorts of crock pot recipes, too.
5. Homemade salsa. I made this recipe from the Mennonite Girls and I have decided that I have now become a homemade salsa snob. The store bought just doesn't compare. I am so going to be making homemade salsa every fall.
Well, have a great weekend everyone! I'm planning on lots of reading time with pots of hot, lemony tea, for sure!
