Friday's Fave Five #488
Hi everyone! Friday's here and that means another opportunity to intentionally look for those things that were blessings and good things in our lives from the last week. Please join us. If you are new just click the FFF button in the sidebar, read over the guidelines and then just jump right in. We'd love to have you!
And here we go with my favorite five blessings from the week:
~Dad out of the hospital~ Finally! After 11 days in the hospital they discharged my Dad. That was one long, scary, frustrating event. At 87 this was very stressful for him. His blood sugars have finally stabalized enough to let him go home. When admitted his numbers were literally off the chart. And then they would drop scary low. After having diabetic training and having to learn to give himself insulin injections it's going to be a learning curve at home too. But hopefully he'll make the transition.
~Ladies small group end of the year party~ At the end of June our ladies' group always has a wrap up party. This year only 4 were able to attend which was really sad but us four had such a lovely evening. Usually we go out but this year one of ladies offered to bbq at their home. It was amazing. They rotisseried a prime rib. It was sooooo delicious. Everyone added a yummy side and I have to confess I ate entirely too much. Then we chatted over strawberry shortcake and lemonades. The weather even co-operated. It got cloudy but no big wind or rain.
~ and yes, I must make the strawberry shortcake a fave ~ Oh my goodness it was delicious. It was cake, not a biscuit. So moist and not sickeningly sweet. And very strawberry. Yum. A new favorite dessert to take to pot luck type dinners.
~ dayhome kids that make me laugh ~ I have one little 22 month old who is just hilarious. She's an absolute tease and a stinker and soooo much fun. This week she had me in stitches several times. I wish I could post some of the great pictures that I've captured of her at her best.
~perfect timing ~ a library book I had on hold came in fairly quickly. It came in right as I'm finishing up another book but before my review book has hit the mail box. I have so many great books awaiting reading for the summer.
What were your favorite blessings of the last week?
