Welcome to a lovely fall Friday's Fave Five. Join our group as we intentionally look for things to be thankful for in our lives from the past week.
Best plum ever! I picked up these yummy sounding plums from Costco last week. I mean how could I resist plums that were called Sierra Honey Plums. Oh my goodness these are the best plums I have ever had. So sweet and juicy with just the barest hint of tart in the peel. So good I went back and bought two more boxes in case they don't get anymore. And they're kind of a heart shape...what's not to love? ;)
Beautiful warm week. After a very cold week where we had frost watches a couple of times in the night, this week has been absolutely grand. The very best of fall: blue skies, warm weather with that lovely fall cool hint, the leaves are turning color and NO wind! Just perfect!
Presentations that go well. I was asked to do a short presentation at church representing Missions and Outreach at our church on Sunday. It was a fun, informal kind of thing where 5 different areas in church that needed volunteers were represented and gave a short talk, then the pastor asked a few questions. The idea was to let all the newcomers and those interested where they could volunteer or help out. I always get quite nervous whenever I'm asked to do stuff like this, though I have done it for years. But all went well, I managed not to stick my foot in my mouth and I only forgot one small thing concerning my actual area which is Operation Christmas Child. Which is ok because I'm up there again in a week to talk about the kick off to that anyway. From comments received afterwards, people really enjoyed the more casual, chatty kind of format.
Spontaneous lunch out with friends. Sunday spur of the moment Hubby wanted to invite some friends of ours out for lunch. Usually these people are very busy and you have to arrange these kinds of things ahead of time. But this particular Sunday they were available and we enjoyed a really nice lunch out with them.
Surprise takeout lunch. Knowing I had an interview for a new family in dayhome at 5:30, my thoughtful Hubby brought home takeout from the Indian Kitchen. He knows the interviews are stressful for me and I'm busy prepping beforehand. It makes for a long day and supper ends up being really late and thrown together or else unhealthy fast food because I don't like stuff cooking when the family is here. So a good lunch from a restaurant I like was a real nice surprise and a gift.
What were you're favorites this week?
