Friday's Fave Five #329

Welcome to this week's addition of Friday's Fave Five.   Come and join us as we find our blessings in the midst of our week and share 5 of them.  The point is to notice and find and be thankful for the good things in our lives no matter what kind of week we are having.  

1.  A lovely Mother's Day.  I just wanted a quiet Mother's Day this year, doing sweet nothin'.  I wanted to go to church.  I wanted to read my book.  I wanted to stay at home.  And my family blessed me with it all.  Hubby got our traditional KFC, and some yummy salads.  He even made a special trip to Costco for their tiramisu because he knows I love it.  Lovely gifts from him and the kids made me feel like a queen and thoroughly spoiled.  Very thankful for my family and how they made me feel special.

2.  Just being with Hubby.  Saturday Hubby and I just spent running around doing errands.  Just normal everyday things that needed doing but we did them together.  And we rounded it out with a yummy coffee served to us by our daughter who works at the coffee shop.

3.  Refreshing Rain. We've had a bit of rain this week which has washed everything clean and made it smell lovely.  I was able to get some fertilizer on the lawn so am expecting a nice green color in the back yard when the sun comes back out.  It helped to soften up the soil in the flour beds so I can get to digging and prepping it for flowers next week.  

4.  A wonderful massage therapist.  I am very thankful for this lady who does my massage.  She really goes out of her way.  She accommodated me for extra time so she could work on my leg and knee which were acting up.  And when I left there my knee felt way better than it has for more than a week.

5.  A rest from the gym.  I really enjoy my workouts at the gym most days but with the knee acting up I thought I would give it a good rest and just let it heal.  While I was put out that I had some kind of injury to begin with I also learned my lesson from the last time and I knew to rest it  and not push it.  I actually appreciated the time off and am now ready to get back to it.

What blessings did you enjoy this last week?

Glad you had such a lovely Mother's Day! I prefer the peaceful, restful, at-home kind, too.

Glad you got a good rain and hope your lawn springs up nice and green.

We were supposed to go shopping tomorrow for flowers for the beds and a tree to replace one that died, but it's supposed to rain, so we'll have to see. I've usually done the flower-shopping on my own, but we did it together last year, and hubby enjoyed that and wanted to do it again this year.

I'm glad your massage therapist did such a good job for you and hope your knee feels back to normal soon.

Great things to be thankful for. Sorry about your knee acting up and I do hope it gets all better soon. Glad you had a good Mother's Day!

So nice to have your dear ones accommodate your wishes -- honoring you for Mother's Day! And what a coincidence, we got rain, too ;-) As well as a massage therapist. One of my friends from Cambria has started her own business, specializing in shiatsu. Hope you get lasting results from your treatment.

I sure could use a message therapist! I feel as tense and rubber band stretched all the way out! :)
So glad you had a wonderful mothers day. And spending time with hubby no matter what you're doing really is great time spent!

I'm sorry you have that injury. Hope it heals quickly!

Can I borrow your massage therapist? :)

I have to agree on the rain being a fave--we are actually getting a little precipitation here, too!

I like peaceful days at home, too. I at least got to spend from 3 p.m. on at home. (No evening church that night.)

I know KFC isn't good for you, but I love it, too.

I bet time off from the gym feels good. :)

By the way, I really appreciate your visiting all my A-z posts and leaving comments. I'm so glad to have you as a blogging buddy!
