Welcome to a brand new month of FFF's. Hard to believe it's March already and spring is just around the corner. This winter here in Southern Alberta has been something else this year and I, for one, and I'm sure I'm not the only one, am waiting with great anticipation for the warmth and sunshine. But for now, there is always something good to find in my week. Please join me in looking for blessings from the last week and sharing 5 of them with us. Guidelines are here.
~day spent with family in Calgary~ Saturday turned out to be a lovely day after a crazy windy Friday last week. We decided to have a little family type day spent in Calgary. My hubby is so good in recognizing when I need to have a little break and getaway. T had to be in Calgary that day anyway to take her friend to the airport and when we asked J to meet us in Calgary he right away said yes. We had a wonderful time at the Farmer's Market and the huuuuge outlet mall (1.4 million square feet!). We all just did our own thing and met up every so often in the mall. We then went for supper at one of our fave restaurants. Though we got home super late and super tired it was a great little getaway from the same old, same old just being together. We did miss our oldest daughter and her hubby, however, but it's just way too long of a trip for them to make it a day trip.

~new job for my youngest~ T landed herself a job that she is super excited about. She had left her old job about a month ago and was very faithful in checking the job sites on a daily basis. She got herself an interview at a newer salon and spa in town. She is hired as a part time receptionist for the moment but will be trained in other areas and will move closer to full time as she learns and grows. She is so happy and is looking forward to learning and the potential she has at this new job. I'm really happy for her.
~rhubarb tea~ the Farmer's market has a little tea boutique called Totalitea that has some wonderful flavors. This time I tried the Sweet Rhubarb tea. It was really delicious after supper when I was craving a sweet.
~fresh pressed beet apple juice~ another great find at the Farmer's market. A vegetable booth had a variety of freshly made juice. We tried carrot, apple, beet apple, wheat grass apple and parsley apple. By far my favorite was the beet apple. We bought a bottle and I've been enjoying a small glass each morning. So good. Wish I could purchase it here but it will have to be a special treat when we are able to get up to the Farmer's market.
~prayers of friends~ such a precious gift it is to be able to rely on the prayers of friends when we need it.
What have been your favorite blessings this week?
