I know it's not quite spring yet but, my goodness, I am ready to get away from the grey colors of winter so I pulled out the spring button. C'mon spring!! Thanks for joining me in Friday's Fave Five once again. Looking back over the week to notice my blessings just helps get the weekend off on the right foot, so here we go:
2. Spring decorations. The winter decorations are finding the way of the winter button and making way for the fresher lighter colors of spring. A little here and a little there are making their way out of the box and into the kitchen and living. I know I'm hurrying it a bit but it's making me feel good. If it's not gonna be spring quite yet outside, it will be inside!
3. Movie we actually watched through to the end. I usually try and borrow a couple of movies from the library for the weekend. Our library has "blockbusters" for rent for 3 days, new releases that did well at the box office and they are free. Or we rent them off our provider where they are not free. But the last few weekends we haven't had much luck with them. We have turned off I don't know how many movies over the last few weekends because they were boring, not our tastes, or filled with too much explicitness, vulgar language or gratuitous violence. Which isn't so bad when it's the free library ones but a real bummer when it's a paid for one. This last weekend we happened to hit on one that we actually both were enjoying and watched all the way through. And bonus...it was a freebie from the library. "The Giver" broke our bad run of movie picks.
4. A new favourite drink to add to my repertoire. Last week they had a big sign up at the corner Starbucks advertising a Blossoming Peach Tea Latte. Sounded good so I thought I'd break out of my coffee mold. Yum, yum. Earl Grey tea with peach syrup, milk and whipped cream. Soooo good. How did I not know of this before?
5. Tree trim. We have an indoor plant that for reasons only it knows has been scraggly and thin even though it's in a great window and we baby it. It's been that way for years and years. We finally had the guts to go ahead chop it right back, put the tops into another bucket to try and root it, and left one short stem that seemed to be doing okay. Keeping our fingers crossed that it will not only barely survive but thrive! Nice not to be looking at the scraggly sickly looking thing in the window anymore.
