Friday Fave Five


I like this carnival over at Susanne‘s. I get to think about my five favorite things this past week….and what a busy week, thus my lack of blog posts. 😦

But I am thinking things should start to slow down next week.  So in anticipation of a slower week, here are several relaxing moments I enjoyed this week.

#1 – I enjoyed a couple of good cups (well actually it was a styrofoam cup) of tea this week.  I am not a big tea drinker, but I do savor a nice flavored tea in the fall and winter.

#2 – I put on a relaxing instrumental Christmas CD, cuddled under a warm blanket to read a book, and promptly fell asleep on the couch!

#3 – OK this qualifies as relaxing since it helped me out.  I confess that I stopped at McD’s for dinner the other night.  But let me give you the full story.  I was coming home late from several different appointments, I was tired, and knew I would be rushed to get dinner on the table.  So I stopped at our local McD’s and bought four .99 cent double cheeseburgers for a grand total of $4.24.  I brought them home, added chips, carrots and apples and we had a nice dinner together.  And I was pleased with the ease of dinner that night, and I didn’t spend a ton of money.

#4 – We had a nice visit with my dad, he came over and had dinner with us on Monday.  That was another easy meal.  I had bought ham steaks on sale, I had this wonderful Boars Head brown sugar ham glaze that I spread on the ham steaks. Baked the ham for a half hour, and you have the start of a wonderful dinner!

#5 -I had a great time in my classroom last Friday carving pumpkins with the students.  The each loved having a chance to plunge into that pumpkin with those cool pumpkin cutters.



  1. I liked your fave 5. Came over from Susanne´s and checked it out. Sounds like you had a good week. I think it´s important to focus on the good moments!

  2. Hi I’m over from Suzanne’s blog. Your picture makes me miss the classroom! I’m a retired teacher.

    You must be from the Philly area – I was glancing voer your blog and saw the picture of the parade – my nephew and his fiance were there. They live in the Wyncote area.

    I love your # 2 – I need to get my Christmas music out!!

    Hope you have a great weekend!


  3. I love the picture of you and your student carving the picture. Priceless! I think lots of moms understand stopping at McD sometimes for dinner. Sometimes we need a little help.

    I saw your user name on Mimi’s (He & Me +3) comments and had to come by. You gotta love a woman who loves Jesus & Dark Chocolate. Two of my favs in life!
