Friday's Fave Five #177

Welcome to Friday's Fave Five everyone.  Are you all ready to share the good things from your days?  The favorite moments, the blessings, the things that have brought a smile or uplifted you?  Please join right in.

1.  Exceptionally mild weather.  The weather around here has been darn right incredible.  So not what we're used to in February.  While cold and frosty in the mornings it warms up by noon and the kids have actually had a couple of days where they've played in just hoodies outside.  That is unreal!  In fact, this mildness?   It's made us a bit wimpy.  A chill we never would have paid attention to before now we're shivering with.  Oh well, I soaking it in because I know we're gonna get hit with some cold yet before the winter is over.

2.  My crazy dog.  He cracks me right up constantly.  He has quite the personality.  Here he is getting a tummy rub and is totally in heaven though almost standing on his head.  If I'm feeling low I just have to watch his crazy antics throughout the day to get a smile.

3.  Watching "Courageous" with my 16 year old daughter.  She hadn't seen it yet so it was great watching it with her.  Such a good meaningful movie.

4.  Morning coffee and having it ready to pour most mornings thanks my sweet hubby.  Nothing like seeing that pot on and full as I stumble into the kitchen first thing in the morning!  Thanks Sweetie!

5.  Quick jobs bringing unexpected free time.  Gotta love when a job you agreed to do ends up taking way less time than what was thought.  It left me with an extra hour to do one of my favorite things:  read!

What were you're favorites from the week?

That is a sweet thing to enjoy each morning from your husband. I love that our animals bring so much joy with their silly antics. And I don't believe for a minute that you're turning wimpy in this mild weather. You've got that Envoy now, remember?

Talking about weather ! It's so cold here we sometimes have - 15°C (2 F)and less during nights and the days are a bit warmer but still very cold !
Your dog is real cute, all white, I have to look twice to see my white cat Arthur in the snow, lol !

Willow said...

Yes, mild weather, while it may make us wimpy, is a blessed respite. Enjoy!

What a sweet dog you have. I wonder if he realizes in his puppy mind how much his 'pack mama' loves him.

Have a happy, mild weathered weekend!

Your weather has been warm and mild, while we in Europe have had to deal with extremely cold weather! It's crazy!
Your dog is so cute!
Your hubby is so sweet making you coffee each morning. I'm sitting here sipping mine. My hubby does not drink coffee, and I think he would not know how to make it either!
I hope you have a great weekend Susanne!

I've decided I grossly underestimate how long it takes me to do jobs. So I'm going to try overestimating so I'll have some of those moments you're talking about, "Oh! I finished early!" and go grab a book. :-)

Your dog is cute. My dog is crazy like that, except she's may too big to be acting that way. ha.

Enjoy your mild weather! We've had a much milder winter this year ourselves, but all that changes tomorrow. Gotta bundle up for a high of 34 F. That's very cold to me (but I'm wimpy with weather).

We've had a really mild winter, too. They're forecasting cold weather and snow this weekend, but our particular area is supposed to miss the snow. The weather can still do crazy things before spring arrives.

We haven't seen Courageous yet. I've only heard good things about it.

I can tend to get a little down by thinking how long something is going to take and then feel so happy and free when it doesn't take as long as expected. One of life's little pleasures. :-)

I'm loving our winter this year too. We're supposed to get a storm this weekend, home it's not too bad, we've been spoiled. :)

Have a great week.

That's one of the best dog pictures ever! :)

Jerralea said...

Always a bonus to find extra time to read!

Have a great week - and we are enjoying milder than usual weather down here in the States, too!

Marg said...

I love the fresh smell of coffee. It brightens my day..and to find that extra time to read...I usually have another project that needs to be finished..I love the idea of finishing work early and the satisfaction it brings.
Your dog makes me smile.

We have had wonderful weather as well. This has been a great winter so far! Your dog is adorable!!! mmmmmmm COFFEE!! What a great husband for getting it ready for you!!! Hope you have a great weekend!!

Brenda said...

We have had very mild weather here as well, I'm wondering if winter will come and extend in to summer! Pets are great for keeping things light around the house, aren't they?

ellen b. said...

Funny dog! I'm glad you got the job done early and you could get to that pile of books LOL! Besides our one snowmageddon week, it's been mild around here, too. Have a great weekend.

I know what you mean about the weather....although we have mild winters compared to Northern climes, we usually do have a few more cold days than this year so far. But like you, I think we will probably still have some....We haven't really adjusted to cold, it was chilly last evening and I was so cold when I went to bed but it was only in the 30s.
We're having a false spring, with flowers blooming and trees budding out.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Mama Bear

sweet pets, mild weather and coffee-- Always some of my favorites as well!

I've been having a HECK of a time trying to edit my post (forgot to name it or tag it!), but I got it linked, anyway, and hopefully will be able to fix it before the day is out....

Hope you all have a great weekend ahead!

Carrie said...

The picture of your dog makes me smile.

We're still looking forward to seeing Courageous. Hope to get to that soon!

Faith said...

Yay for husbands who brew the coffee!!! MY FAVE DRINK!! He almost always is the one to brew it on Sunday mornings...and i love that he does that! Your dog is adorable..i bet he's fun to watch! I am loving the mild winter but we are supposed to get hit with a low of 11 degrees tomorrow....YIKES! we've been spoiled here in eastern NY! have a wonderful weekend Susanne....enjoy some reading time:)

Catherine said...

What a sweet puppy! And your husband is a darling, too - to have your coffee ready for you each morning. Sometimes the little things mean so much.

I thought Courageous was a wonderful movie, too.

We have had some nice, warm weather, but have some snow arriving tonight. Oh well.. I can't complain.

I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

Kathie said...

we were are still having mild temperatures but a snowstorm is on its way tomorrow! yay! Unfortunately it might turn to rain - but then -28 on Monday. Go figure!

Your dog is incredibly cute!

Hope you get some more reading time in this weekend!

Hope said...

Love your dog! I have one that looks very similar except she is all black. She is very goofy and funny to watch, too. My hubby and I just watched "Courageous" last weekend and loved it! What an inspiring movie!

Karen said...

I didn't get to my Friday Fave Five this week, but enjoyed reading yours.

Winter is here in full force and it's so cold. Your mild weather sounds wonderful.

Love the picture of the dog! They sure do bring joy to a family, don't they?

Haven't heard of the movie, but I will have to look for it.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend, Susanne.
