Friday's Fave Five - July 31, 2009

It's the most wonderful time of the week! Friday! And I always celebrate Friday by participating in Susanne's Friday Fave Five. FFF is a time when we reflect on our week and list 5 favorites.

Here are mine:

1. Yard Sale Treasure of the Week:

2. Excitement: I love when my kids are excited about something and want to share. This week, two of my daughters participated in activities they were passionate about and took the time to tell me every detail. I love it!

3. Thoughtfulness: This week, one of the ladies at church dropped by to bring me some of her homemade pumpkin pie. Just because.

4. Old Favorites: As you know, I'm a voracious reader. Some of my favorite books are old favorites, books that I have read and re-read many times over the years. This week, I started one of my all-time faves, "Christy" by Catherine Marshall.

5. A Day Off Work: I have today off, so I'll be out and about and away from the computer till later.

Why not join the gang at Susanne's Living to Tell the Story and participate?

Have a wonderful Friday!

You're a great mother to listen and share in your kids' excitement! And why have I never read "Christy"? I have it--I need to get with it.

Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.

Yay for days off work! I'm appreciating them more and more!

How neat that your daughters shared their activities with you. I love when mine do the same.

Love the plate!

It's interesting how some of our favorite things are a reflection of our past. I have never read that book. I need to put that aside for my next vacation.

What a fun Yard Sale find. I love it too when my kids want to share with me. Reading is such a great pleasure...enjoy.
I've been away from the computer most of the day today with my daughter and soon I'll be headed to the airport to pick up my hubby. Life is rich. Blessings on your weekend...

Great plate!

Christy is one of my very favorite reads! I cannot count how many times I've read it - the last time being last summer.

Oh, what a sweet friend to drop by with homemade Pumpkin pie! Yum! And you know, sometimes I complain because my girls tell me EVERYTHING but you remind of just how thankful I am that they do. Blessings!

Christy is one of my all time favourite novels too.

What a great yard sale treasure - and a great price too!

Sharing with your girls and pumpkin pie from a friend - wonderful!

Great List Jerri.
I am so envious of your yard sale finds!
And I love it when people do things - "just because". That is so great.
