Friday’s Fave Five

FFF fall leaves 2

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story hosts a “Friday Fave Five” in which we share our five favorite things from the past week. Click on the button to read more of the details, and you can visit Susanne to see the list of others’ favorites or to join in.

1. I still don’t have my fall decorations out yet, but I wanted to change my front door. I had a cute scarecrow wreath the last year or two, but for some reason I just didn’t want “cute” this year. Hobby Lobby had flower stems on sale half off, so I got a few and put them in the holder I used for spring flowers. I wasn’t sure how fall colors would work with the lighter green holder, but I like how it turned out:


2. A comfy pink sweater. I don’t even remember where or when I got it, but I have been taking it in and out of the closet for a couple of years thinking that pink is a spring/summer color and I didn’t have any fall/winter clothes to wear with it. But it goes well with denim and a few other things. It fits and feels just right.

3. Peanut Butter Rice Krispie treats with melted chocolate chips on top. Meant to get a picture — but they don’t last too long around here!

4. Music in general and Christian music in particular. Next to the Bible and possibly Christian books, nothing ministers to my heart like music.

5.Warmer days. I know I just said cooler days recently, and in fact, last weekend’s weather was perfect for my tastes: cool but not cold, sunshiny, and breezy. But our furnace went out this week! We have a fireplace, one room has a gas heater, and we have a portable electric heater, so we’ll be ok if it gets cold again, but it is nice to have this little reprieve from the coldness. If the furnace had to go out, I’m glad it happened now and not in January when we’re in the 20s.

Bonus: Short and cute

  1. Love your planter on the front door! Those Krispy bars sound like something my dh would love. I have a sweater I only wear around the house that is similar to your pink one. So comfy! And music . . . I am a music lover too! Good list!

  2. Your fall flowers look lovely in their holder. I need to get out a few things myself.
    Ooh, those Rice Krispie treats sound divine.
    I so agree about music. It definitely ministers to me as well.
    The panda video is so funny. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Your door decor is beautiful!
    I had a peanut butter rice crispy today after lunch, and I mentioned it in my fave five too! HA. I love love love peanut butter!
    I love music too. During a rough time, there is almost nothing that can give me greater comfort or assurance!

    Keep warm!!


  4. Your fall flowers are lovely. I wish you’d saved a Rice Krispy Treat for me! I, too, am glad your furnace chose now to quit. Much, much better than quitting after the weather gets seriously cold. And that was a major big sneeze for such a tiny, cute panda — and it’s momma thought so, too! LOL.

  5. I’ve seen that panda sneezing video before but always so hilarious!! I love sweater weather. I made Peanut Butter Rice krispy treats this week too for our Truth Project group…
    Have a great weekend…
