Friday's Fave Five

It's Friday so it's time to join in with Suzanne's Friday's Fave Five.  
It's a place to come on Fridays and think back over your week and just post about 5 favourite things from your week. It can be anything that tickled your fancy over the week. Favourite quotes, posts, happenings, scriptures, recipes, pictures, great internet finds, etc., etc.

I'm really struggling to find Five Favourite things this week.  It's been quite an uneventful week.  My hubby was away for work from Monday to Wednesday and then yesterday and today, despite supposedly being off work in lieu of Monday and Tuesday he's been working on a case.  To say that's frustrating is putting it mildly.  Especially since I spent quite a long time yesterday setting up his work tablet and getting him connected to his work network.  His IT skills leave a lot to be desired.

Despite all that I guess one of my favourite things is my hubby.  Despite all his flaws I'm still glad I'm married to him and that he puts up with all my shortcomings too.

Another fave this week has been Netflix and the Good Wife.  Ironing is much less boring when watching TV.

Another thing I am thankful for this week  is that we didn't get flooded despite the awful weather we've had.

But the thing that I'm most grateful for this week is that Poppy (our niece's baby) is home!  She has improved so much over the past week.  She is still being tube fed (through her nose) every 3 hours but hopefully within the next month they will insert a tube directly into her stomach as she will need to be fed around the clock for the forseeable future.  But to see her now compared to just a few weeks ago is such a blessing.  The family will be staying with Poppy's grandparents for now as they need to have work done on their house but I think it's a good thing that they will have extra support as they get used to coping at home.

And I'm thankful for all the other Friday's Fave Five participants, especially Suzanne, for stopping by and leaving comments.  I do try and get around to you all but I find keeping a thread of comments on Blogger is nigh on impossible.  Wordpress is better at that but I'm not ready to move my blog again.  Well not yet anyway.

Have a great weekend all.  We'll be celebrating my birthday on Sunday with all the kids and their partners here.


  1. I am so happy to read that about Poppy...while watching CSPAN/election last night, they were often referring to your record rain, smiles.

    1. Some of my plant pots were waterlogged.

  2. Sometimes that's when I like FFF the best, when there's nothing that stands out for me to list until I stop and think about it. I like to watch something when ironing, too - that enlivens a boring job. Great news about Poppy! I'm grateful for a husband who loves me despite my shortcomings, too.

  3. Started following you during April, but working my way through the summer road trip blogs now. I am just finishing up a series of June Posts on summertime while growing up and how to recapture some of those moment this summer. Hope you have time to spend a few minutes and read some of them to gauge what the blog can be about and if it calls to you. It's an interesting blogging world I'm glad we share.

  4. Sometimes it's hard to come up with five favorites, but I agree with Barbara, that's when I really need to. You've come up with some good ones. I like your #5, all the other FFF participants. They all make my day with their comments:) It's a great bunch of people!

  5. I am glad that you did not have flooding. I need to finally watch The Good Wife, as I have heard such great things about it.

  6. For finding it hard, I thought you found some marvelous things to be thankful for. Some weeks are like that and then is when we find the quieter blessings in the simpleness rather than those that shout out and are obvious. I find this helps me not to take the little things for granted. Glad you pressed on and participated anyway. So glad to hear little Poppy is home! That is awesome news. Ironing definitely needs something...a good show does help to make the time go faster.

  7. I've recently discovered Good Wife and have been binge watching it - such a great show!! I don't own an iron, but if I did it would make ironing much more enjoyable :-)

  8. Some weeks are uneventful, but I'm glad you found some good things that gave you joy. I know what you mean about maintaining bloggy conversations ;-)


I love receiving comments and will do my best to acknowledge them, either by replying here or dropping in on your blog.
