Friday's Fave Five #477
Welcome to Friday's Fave Five. Looking back over the last week we are intentionally choosing to take note of the blessings in our lives whether it's been a great week or a hard week. Please join us. If you are new the link to the guidelines is in the sidebar.
In no particular order here were some things that were a blessing to me this past week.
~great customer service~ I had booked a hotel through hotels.com for our Easter weekend visit with my older daughter. We prepaid it on booking. Well when we got home we noticed that the hotel had actually charged our card also upon checkout. I called the hotels.com customer service and the young lady was so helpful. She called the hotel and had everything fixed lickety split and I ended up getting an even better deal.
~spring organization started~ this year it has been tough going jumping into this. The weather is still crazy here in Southern Alberta. It is snowing outside, albiet a wet spring snow, but snow nonetheless, even as I type. I have had a hard time even taking out my spring decorations. I cleaned and put away all the heavy warm winter sweaters and took out the spring/summer cushions for the couches, packed away the warmer wintery smelling candles and took out the fresher springy ones but have not been motivated to do much else yet. But it's a start. Hopefully we'll get some sunshine next week and we can fling open some windows and get to it. I must say though that even just those small changes make the place feel freshened up a bit.
~coffee in the morning~ I love coffee pretty much anytime though now do have to watch I only have decaf if I drink it after 2 in the afternoon, but that first cup in the morning has got to be the best! And bonus blessing is that for the most part when I wake up my sweet hubby has a fresh, hot cup waiting when I get up in the morning.
~made up recipes that actually work out~ sometimes I am the poorest of planners when it comes to what I'm going to make for dinner. I find it so hard to choose something days ahead of time or when I am not hungry. Sometimes I fail to check and make sure I have all the ingredients and then end up changing things on the fly. But it's always happy times when I make something up and it actually ends up working and everyone loves it. I did that this week when what I thought I wanted for supper was missing half the ingredients and so I just made it up as I went with what I had in the pantry. Come to think of it I better write down what I did before I forget. LOL.
~Little Library at my gym~ if you don't know what a little library is it's a small little container for books that people put on the front of their property where people can take a book and leave a book. It's a sweet community way of sharing books. Well the owner of my small lady's gym put up a little book shelf for this purpose. Love it. Can hardly wait to see what books people drop off.
What have been your favorite blessings from the week?
