Friday Fave Five - July 17th

What a great way to celebrate a week! Join me and Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and share five of the great things that you experienced this week, or five things that you are thankful for! If you'd like to join in, go to Living to Tell the Story and link up with Mr. Linky!Here's my five:

1. The hubby and I got to go camping last weekend, for just one night. It was an adventure to be sure! We got rained on (when the forecast said a 10% chance), we had 6 raccoons invade our peaceful night, we woke up to turkeys surrounding the tent and a herd of deer walking through our site! AND on the way back to the car, I slipped and skidded down a gravel path on my knee... Treacherous trip - but so fun! (And I highly recommend smores made with Nutella in place of Hershey bars - Yum-o!)

2. Grilling out on Sunday - the hubby has perfected his smokey ribs! In fact, they were so good that were doing it again tomorrow for my Dad's b-day! Gotta love that!

3. My book group. They're all such fabulous ladies - I always look forward to Tuesday nights! They can make a long day seem short, fill a sad day with comfort, and make even the "snarkiest" of us laugh and be thankful for the day! I hope everyone has a group of friends they enjoy this much!

4. The hubby has been wonderful as I start working longer days - cooking and warming up dinners for me, cleaning up the kitchen, encouraging me to go for walks when I get home, he even got my dessert ready for me last night! Ha ha ha. He's a keeper!

5. Today - I am all caught up on work, everything is done for the week! I can hang out with friends tonight, family tomorrow, and enjoy a picnic on Sunday! It feels good to "close up shop" for the weekend... So nice.

And... the things I am thankful for today:

1. Our landscape crew taking care of our yard... even if they are loud and early!
2. My new windwall jacket from NorthFace - I can't wait for cool autumn walks now! I'm prepared!
3. Fresh flowers in the dining room.
4. My african violets are potted!
5. Fun, silly surprises for Dad's b-day dinner tomorrow!
6. A haircut - just a trim, but it feels so good!
7. Sales. I love sales.
8. Dinner at Em and Jeremy's house. So fun!
9. Making Miss Elly (my goddaughter) giggle.
10. An all around good day. I'm all smiles.

I have a friend who loves Nutella. I can;t wait to pass on the S'mores suggestion to her...she'll flip for it.

Wow, one night's adventure camping! Imagine if you'd stayed a week!! Hurray on perfected grilled ribs :-D

Willow said...

You had enough adventure in one night of camping to last a whole summer! I heart Nutella too!

Susanne said...

Mmmm, nutella smores. Yummy!

LOL. Your camping trip sounds like it was "interesting".

What a blessing a hubby is who lends a hand like that!

Nice tip on the nutella for the s'mores. Never tried that. Sounds like a good week and a very wonderful husband, lots to be thankful for.
