Friday's Fave Five #502
Welcome to Friday's Fave Five. It's been a chilly week here in Southern Alberta. And it snowed. Yikes! Perfect week to think on good blessings to get our mind off the weather. Please join us as we continue in this weekly discipline of thankfulness for the good things in our lives.
~flannel shirts~ My girls love flannel shirts and have been trying to convince me I need one in my life. A couple of weeks ago they went on sale for $9.99 at Costco so I bit the bullet and bought one. I mean you can't lose for that price, right?! I am totally sold. I have worn it so much already. It's cozy and soft and oh, so comfy. I like it so much I went and bought another in a different color. I know it's going to be a staple in my wardrobe this year.
~blackberries~ Tried them for the first time that I can remember this summer and I don't know what on earth held me back. Yummy.
~ library time~ I was able to grab some library time this week. This is a definite de-stress time for me. Wandering around and browsing through all the books is very relaxing and just lets me wind down. I switched out the dayhome kids books, which they always like, I picked up a couple of movies for them to choose from for this afternoon's movie day, and I picked up a hold for me
~little bits of fall decor~ This year I went really simple with the seasonal decor and I like it it. A lot less work and less dusting but enough bits of fall color to make it nice.
~3 more bags purged~ on my quest to get rid of stuff that is just laying around taking space, causing stress and making work in upkeep or shifting it around from spot to spot, I came up with 2 more bags of stuff and another bag of clothes from my daughter making 3 bags out the door this week! Feels good to get rid of stuff that is no longer serving a purpose in the house. A lot were clothes and household items so they will be taken to the street mission downtown where someone needing them will put them to good use. I have a few larger dayhome things I will be selling that the kids just don't really play with at all so those will be gone too!
What have been your favorite blessings this week?
