Happy Friday's Fave Five from snowy southern Alberta! It's a chilly and white world in my corner but there are still blessings to be found. Please join in as we look for the blessing in our everyday.
~ rescued plant ~ last weekend I got all my flower beds put to sleep and all but 3 of my planters dugs out and put away. I really tried to get it all done but Sunday found rain preceding the predicted snow and I was just not up for going out in the wet. But I did rescue this favorite, a Corkscrew Rush otherwise known as a Curly Wurly, and I'm hoping it will live to next spring so I can replant it outside.
~ Operation Christmas Child kickoff ~ one of my favorite things about October. I just love this ministry and I love doing the kickoff each mid October. I am blessed to be able to have been a part of so many different aspects of this ministry right down to the handing of a special shoebox gift to amazing, wonderful children. It is their 30th Anniversary this year! Since 1993 they have delivered over 209 million shoebox gifts in over 70 countries. 30 years of bringing Great News and Great Joy to children, their families and their communities in the poorest and remotest parts of the world! And I've probably been involved for about 15 - 20 years of it. So exciting to watch it grow from it's humble beginnings.
~ a hubby who went the extra mile ~ Monday I started to get a headache in the morning and by mid afternoon it was a whopper. So thankful to a hubby who offered and then went and made the store run to get me a bag of plain chips and this dip because he knows that, for some reason, it helps relieve some of the intensity of the pain.
~ comfort foods ~ with the cold and the snowfall comfort foods are where it has been this week! Today I made a big pot of potato soup that the dayhome kids and I enjoyed with cheese toast for lunch and this week I also made Serbian Ground Beef which is a fave of both hubby and I for it's fall type flavors. And this weekend I'm planning on Chicken Paprikash and Nokedli (Tiny Dumplings) which is a childhood favorite. What are your favorite comfort foods?
