Friday Fave 5


What a week it has been, we started the week in 2008 and end in 2009.

I have been busy, but have also been enjoying my week off of school, what a blessing!

Thanks to Susanne ( I always enjoy her blog!) for hosting Friday Fave 5, to see more, click on the button above.

My favorite thing this week was a hike SportTman and I took to a local hawk sanctuary.  It was a beautiful day with a clear blue sky.  We of course had to take the hard trail with all the rocks to climb and snow, but I really liked it.  And time spent with my son is always priceless.


After the hike, we went to the local Cabela’s store, and enjoyed a Buffalo deli meat sandwich together.

I also enjoyed, relished, got LOTs of much needed laundry done.  It has really been piling up, and after running my dryer for almost 24 hours straight, it’s nice to see that enormous pile shrink.


This is a little thing, but I just love these lights!!!! I have this cabinet, that runs along side my dishwasher, it’s like a big black hole for plastic containers.  Now with this handy dandy light, I can now see all the lost plastic containers!

I have discovered why kids find Rock Band so addicting!  Let me just impress you with my skills, I can master the Easy level with the guitar and the singing…….and I fail every time at the easy level with the drums!  I have been such a hold out for all of that kind of video game stuff for so long.  However,  SportTman and The Inventor put some of their money together, and bought a Play Station 2 ( to replace our PlayStation 1 that I had bought at a consignment shop) and got Rock Band.  I must admit it is fun.

Dinner on Thurs. night was yummy and easy, I had picked up a “Macaroni Grill Restaurant Favorites at Home” kit while shopping recently. And if I recall, it was  priced fairly reasonable.  You just add chicken, water, and oil.  It was so delicious, and to think that I could make Chicken Marsala one of my favorites at home, that was impressive to me.

And I have been reading a few books over Christmas break, I enjoy reading, but just don’t take the time!  So it’s nice to lay under a blanket on the couch and read.  Although I left the one book I am reading by Tony Dungy ( Indianapolis Colts football coach) at the Dentist office on Wed.  Ugh!

How was your week?


  1. Your fives were great to read Sandy. Rock band has been really enjoyed around here (my daughter’s boyfriend brought it over for her birthday entertainment) She is a master at the vocals! It’s fun to watch but I haven’t tried it :0)
    Both my sons love Cabella’s. They have gift cards burning a hole in their pockets! Our nearest Cabella store is about 60 miles away :0(

    Little lights in dark cupboards ~ genius idea :0)
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Happy New Year Sandy!

    I have got to get some of those little lights. I have just the place for them. Hiking with your son sounds like so much fun!

  3. I MUST get one of those lights! I have the same type of corner cabinet on the left side of my dishwasher….and it is always way too dark!

    Love the hike idea….we have 10 inches of snow on the ground at one of our fave hiking spots so…….since we don’t own snowshoes (yet), we won’t be hiking any time soon…although yesterday I did a bit at my sis’s house…those pics will be up soon.
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  4. What a great picture! Sounds like a fun time! I have been catching up on some reading too lately! I love to read and unfortunately, I have a tendency to get wrapped up in it. So I have to remember not to let it overtake everything else ;o)

    BTW, I love this meme. I might have to try it!

  5. A buffalo deli meat sandwich?!? Sounds like something my husband would like to try.

    This is my first time to your blog, feel free to stop by and say hello at my blog as well. Hope that your New Year is off to a GREAT start!! 🙂

  6. I like this meme. I also love visiting your blog. I will for sure count you in the pay it forward. Thanks for stopping by. Way to go on rockband, I hear it is super fun…we got guitar praise for Christmas. Very fun also & the Christian music is a bonus, you can’t beat that.
