Well it's February already, so much going on in this short month. It's also Friday so let's take a pause and take note of the blessings that came our way in the last week of January. Please join in sharing 5 of those favorites.
~quote~ Love the wording of this quote by Max Lucado and the image it puts in my mind. I think it's from his new book "Anxious for Nothing".
"We can wear our hurt or wear our hope. We can outfit ourselves in our misfortune, or we can clothe ourselves in God's providence. We can cave in to the pandemonium of life, or we can lean into the perfect plan of God."
~birthday celebrations~ On Friday my son turned 26. Wow, can't believe I just typed that. We celebrated with his favorite meal at his request: my soft tacos. He's requested these for practically every birthday since he was a kid. We even offered to take take him a dinner out but nope, tacos it was. And of course, his favorite cake, fruit flan had to make an appearance. Happy Birthday, Son! You've become a wonderful young man we are so proud of!
~favorite restaurant dish made at home~ Our family love The Old Spaghetti Factory restaurants. Unfortunately, or possibly fortunately for our waistlines, there isn't one here and we try to take it in when we go to Calgary. All of us especially love the Spaghetti with Browned Butter and Mizithra Cheese. Very unique and very delicious. The cheese is very hard to find but the above mentioned son found it at a cheese shop in the city he lives in and bought his dad a chunk of it for Christmas. Hubby was very nice to share and we had a lovely meal of it at home without having to travel 2 hours. A real treat.
~lunch out with a friend~ My friend took me for brunch this Saturday to celebrate my belated birthday. I haven't had lunch out with a friend in what seems like forever. Though I see her often at church, and we go out with our spouses for couples nights, it has been a long while since I've just had time with her as my friend. It was great to catch up and enjoy each other's company. And I love brunch food so it was a blessing all the way around.
~Black Cherry Merlot fragrance items~ I'm loving this scent from Bath and Body Works in everything from hand sanitizer to hand soap and lotion to candles. I find this one is not overpowering but is just nice.
