Friday's Fave Five - 11/6/21


Susanne at Living to tell the Story reminds us every Friday to look back on the blessings of the week.  Here are mine:

1)  A quiet week and good weather.  My daughter and her family have been away on holiday this week so although that has meant looking after their cat there haven't been any requests for picking Nathan up from nursery or babysitting for them.  I've done quite a lot of reading!

2)  Babysitting for Rory & Vinny on Wednesday.  We went over late afternoon and put them to bed without too much hassle while our son & DIL went out for a meal.  First time they've done that in a long time.   It's a blessing for us as we love seeing all the grandkids.

3)  Our anniversary (also on Wednesday) - 37 years married to this wonderful man.  

 The confetti got everywhere!

We didn't do anything special to celebrate as we were babysitting but I do have some lovely flowers.  I always love having fresh flowers in the house.

4)  A visit to one of Nick's sisters on Tuesday.  We hadn't seen her for a while so it was lovely to catch up.

5)  Walking.  I didn't walk on Wednesday but I've managed to walk on the other days and I'm planning to go out later.  The weather has been lovely and warm this week so I've tended to go out late afternoon/early evening when it starts to cool down.  Hubby has been going on a few organised walks and doing a fitness class twice a week and this morning he started a 6 week course to get running.  He's putting me to shame so I'm trying to at least keep my walking going and increasing my distances.  

We currently don't have any plans for the weekend but my daugher and her family are home today so I expect we'll catch up with them at some point.

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Our weather has been so rainy that we have hardly been out this week. Just one hike a couple of evening walks between rain storms. I am glad you got so many walks in. Please share your weather. :)
    It was good to have down time but also enjoy the two littles.
    Have a good weekend!

  2. Happy Anniversary! What a great picture. Enjoy your week and walk.

  3. Happy anniversary! Sounds like a nice blend of quiet time and babysitting and visiting. Good job on the walking. I need to get back to it.

  4. Happy Anniversary! What a sweet photo!

    Good for you guys on walking! That is my favorite exercise.

    I love anytime I can spend with the grands. I think I may have mentioned before that one of my grands is named Rory as well.

  5. We had sunny hot and humid days this week but on Thursday it started to get to my fave temps (mid to high 70s which is PERFECT for after work power walks). Glad you got some walking in!!

    Happy Anniversary to you and hubby!! YOu have your eyes closed in the photo!!

    how special to spend time with grandchildren.

  6. Happy Anniversary! Ours was last week too - Tuesday, June 8. I love your cute wedding picture. So glad you get to spend so much time with your grands. Have a good weekend.

  7. Happy anniversary! I loved seeing your wedding picture, Wendy! Sounds like all the family are fine and I know you will enjoy hearing about the kids' vacation when you catch up with them this weekend! Blessed! xo

  8. What a lovely couple you guys were. Happy Anniversary.

  9. Your bouquet is beautiful. I also love your dress!!! Happy Anniversary!!

  10. Happy Anniversary! We celebrated our 37th this month, too. Hard to believe it's been that long, isn't it?

  11. Happy Anniversary! Love the picture! Our anniversary is this Friday. It will be our 38th. I think we'll actually try to go to a restaurant as they are now open. It's nice to have more of a relaxed week once in awhile.
