Hello and welcome to Friday's Fave Five. Taking the time and pausing to look for and remember the blessings and good things in our week and then share 5 of them. Join on in with us!
1. Flowers planted out. The weekend saw glorious weather. Sunshine, warmth, no wind...it was gorgeous. And because the weather can be fickle around these parts at this time of year, I was keeping a close eye on the weather network. It was predicted to be a very warm week with temps getting up to 29 or 30*C, which is like summer weather here. And the overnights were supposed to be nice to. So Monday I spent putting my bedding out plants into containers and along the driveway. With a happy and tired sigh I stood back and admired them all..... And forgot to take a pic. So I'll post as soon as I can get outside to take it.
And here we go....my 3 front planters
3. Star Fleet Academy Experience. Saturday found us loaded into our good friends' car and headed to Telus Spark, the science center in Calgary. Their feature this spring was the Star Fleet Academy Experience which was all about Star Trek. So. Much. Fun! We got bracelets that we used to log in to different tests and activities that in the end determined what career to pursue in the academy, along with all the paraphernalia that any Trekkie would love to see. I definitely needed practice at accuracy with shooting phasers but hey, I wasn't too bad at learning Klingon language. I totally saved my crew by making an emergency landing onto a life sustaining planet and even got "beamed up". My "personnel file" shows I did well on the tests in Communications (interest in languages, cultures, and communicating with others) with Command and Leadership coming in second with more training. LOL. Totally fun day. If you are at all a fan of any of the Star Trek series you will enjoy this if it comes your way. My hubby and I really only truly got into the Next Generation and yet totally enjoyed the whole thing.
4. Timely scripture that lifts my spirits. I've started these journal pages about once a week, or when I feel God is really speaking to me through a scripture, in an effort to remember scripture better and understand it and make it personal to me. This was this last weeks scripture. I love when it is timely and and speaks right to my life at the moment. God does speak if only we are open to hear.
5. Surprise visit. I miss my adult children who have moved away terribly and am always happy to see them. Friday night found my son walking in the door at 11:30 at night. Stinker. He gave no indication that he was coming at all. But I'll take it!
Whew, it was a busy week so I'm glad that FFF purposefully pauses that busyness and makes me take note of the blessings of God. What were your favorite moments or things from the last week?
