Hi and welcome to Friday's Fave Five. Looking intentionally back over our week and finding those blessings and good things helps us to have a more thankful and hopeful outlook. Please join us.
**of note** I don't know why my post is coming out green. I have tried to find the problem in the html and have tried over and over to change it, even redoing the whole post. I am now way too tired to worry about it. So I apologize if it is hard to read.
~Mother's Day Mani and Pedi~ My youngest daughter, who does manicures and pedicures for a salon, gifted me the for Mother's Day. Saturday I had my appointment with her and it was so much fun. The hand massage was heaven for my very sore thumbs and now I actually have nice nails. And the time with her was my favorite.
~ Royal Wedding~ I am definitely not a royal watcher, per say, but I did enjoy watching the wedding and thought the bride looked elegant and lovely.
~ Flower Pot~ Two years ago my favorite flower pot on the deck finally, after many years of service, bit the dust and I had to throw it out. I used an old clay one last year but not only hated it and the harsh winter cracked and broke it to bits. The pots I really like are the glazed ones but I have never bought one because the thought of digging out all the dirt and finding somewhere to store the things for the winter just doesn't appeal to me. The when I just happened to be in a hardware store, there sat one lonesome pot. It was just the right size, sturdy plastic but had the look of the glazed clay ones. And it was in a color I like and in my price range. Score. I nabbed that thing so fast and now it is looking lovely in it's new home on my deck. (pics to come once I plant my flowers)
~ Haircut~ I was in desperate need of a haircut and finally got one last night. My stylist who usually does my hair is on maternity leave so it has been a bit of an adjustment working it out with the girl she passed me too. The new stylist is very good but she doesn't know my likes and quirks like my regular stylist. Last cut was a bit too bulky and long and this time she got the style right but a bit too short. But I like how she really tries to listen to what I want and asks questions so we are on the right track.
~First bike ride of the year~ Monday was a holiday long weekend here in Canada. Traditionally hubby and I go for a nice long bike ride on this day, sometimes ending in a bbq, sometimes stopping at starbucks. It was a perfectly beautiful morning for the bike ride and we went on one of favorite routes enjoying the view and the fresh air and exercise.
Well those were my favorites this week. It was a short work week for which I am also grateful as the kids were all kind of out of sorts this week so the weekend is very welcome. I'll be planting the rest of my flowers and hopefully another bike ride is in the plans. Have a great week!
