Welcome to Friday’s Fave Five, hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story, in which we can share five of our favorite things from the last week, a wonderful exercise in looking for and appreciating the good things God blesses us with. Click on the button to learn more, then go to Susanne’s to read others’ faves and link up your own.
It’s been a very full week. Here are a few highlights of the week:
1. The Olympics!
2. Jason’s birthday party. We’d had a family get-together earlier in the month, but he wanted to have a party inviting all his and Mittu’s friends from church and work. Mittu planned it, but they had it here because we had a little more space. It was fun working with Mittu to get ready for it, meeting Jason’s friends from work that I didn’t know, and learning a new party game.
3. Mini trifles. Mittu had me put these together as one of the party foods, and they were soooo good! And very nice for a get-together. It was just a piece of brownie in a small plastic cup, a dollop of vanilla pudding, another piece of brownie, whipped topping, and chocolate drizzle. I thought I got a closer picture of them, but the only one I got was this one: they’re on the right.
4. Winning a free lunch…that I didn’t even know I was entering for! I “liked” a local restaurant on Facebook, then later in the day a friend alerted me that I had been their 1,000th “like” and therefore entitled to a free lunch there. Very nice!
5. A new pictorial church directory. They had published one just before we came almost two years ago, and many new people have joined since then. It’s nice to get updated addresses, phone numbers, and e-mails, plus to connect names and faces with the people we don’t know yet.
I’ve got a busy day in store, but I’ll be able to spend some time visiting with you all later on. Hope it’s a good day for you!
