How can this be Friday already? Seams like just yesterday I was writing up last week's FFF. The days are just flying by. But it always seems like that in December, at least to me.
~ lunch with our pastors ~ Sunday after church we enjoyed lunch out with our pastors who also happen to be friends. It was lovely to spend a couple of hours with them catching up and having encouraging conversation. The food was delicious too. The guys love Chinese food so that's what we decided on. Instead of the usual Sunday buffet, we decided to order things we wouldn't usually order. It was fun to try new things.
~ soothing teas ~ when I have a cold I tend to not like coffee as much as I usually do and start to crave tea. There have been a few that have been soothing during this battle with the head cold. Lemon and Orange with Vitamin D, mint, cinnamon apple have all made it into my mug.
~ pumpkin cake ~ one of my dayhome parents sent some homemade pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing. It was so good. I don't really bake anymore so the homemade treat was very much appreicated. And I loooove cream cheese icing!
~ Christmas shopping with my sis ~ after visiting with my mom, my sister and I took a little jaunt to the store to look at lawn decorations. I didn't buy anything but had fun while she made some choices. It was nice to do something fun with her. It sometimes seems the only time we spend is involving the care decisions we must discuss for our Mom so this time was extra special just enjoying each others company.
~ neat effect and nice memories ~ I had forgotten to mention this pic last week but scrolling through my pictures I found this picture I had taken when walking the dogs with my son when we were visiting him. The street light through the trees caused a really neat effect where the branches of the tree looked like they were swirling around the street light. I thought it was a neat thing. But most of all the pic brings memories of a great weekend spent visiting 2 of my grown kids.
What have been your favorite blessings this week?
