Friday's Fave Five #484
Hello and welcome to Friday's Fave Five. I cannot believe it is June the 1st. This month has just flown by. It's a good thing this FFF exercise forces me to take a pause and take note of good things or else they would just escape me. Please join me in sharing five of them.
~short but sweet visit with a friend~ I had been thinking of my friend who I haven't seen in a long while even though we live in the same city and lo and behold she texted me to set a date for a coffee and visit. It was so nice seeing her again. We have one of those precious friendships where we just pick up as if we are together all the time and we can be ourselves with no pretense. How I miss get together more often. We left with promises of setting dates that are not so few and far between .
~ flowers all planted ~ this year I have been so unmotivated with the whole outdoor flower thing. I got my deck planter done as I mentioned in last week's FFF but the rest just wasn't happening. But one evening this week I determined to get it done and I went and bought some flowers and got them put in. Now I'm so glad it's done and wonder why I wasn't motivated. Silly how that is.
~ very much needed rain ~ yesterday it started to rain and it is continuing today. Though it made it much colder out, the rain was so needed. And it's a nice rainfall that is getting absorbed which our area is desperate for. It has been so dry that they've already had a fire ban in the river valley. Which is totally bizarre because we had a crazy winter which saw record snow. But it melted so fast that a lot was run off and didn't get absorbed and we basically skipped spring around here and have jumped straight from winter into summer weather. So yes, rain away!
~ fresh cut lawn ~ My hubby is so faithful to keep our grass mowed on a regular basis. I just love when he does it. The fresh cut grass smell is so wonderful, and it's so nice for the kids to play in a nicely cut lawn.
~ lilacs ~ The lilacs have been blooming like crazy around here and you can smell it when you are outside. So beautiful. Of course a nice vase full on the table is lovely too, though daughter and I both found the smell of them a bit too strong this year for some reason. Nevertheless we stuck it out cause they are gorgeous!
What have been your favorite blessings from this past week?
