Friday Fave Five


I am really enjoying participating in Susanne’s Friday Fave Five this summer.  What a great way to end the week, by reflecting on your favorites.

It’s been a great week.

I even enjoyed my annual visit to the gynecologist, yes you read that right.  I got to talking to the Dr. and found out that she is a christian, I have always liked her, even though she is a gynecologist, but now I think she really is a treasure.  And it makes that nasty  trip a bit more tolerable, especially since I go every 6 mon., since i have had some abnormal pap smears.

Our Fresh Air Fund boy who has visited us for the last 7 seven came for his annual visit this week.  He has really grown, and it is so great to see him.  He is becoming a bright, and kind young man. Yesterday he got to try something he has never done in the Bronx before.


Workers put a whole new roof on our house this week!  A hailstorm/tornado back in March did enough damage to our 22 year old roof that our insurance company paid for a new one!!   We had prayed for a way to pay for a new roof and God sent a hail storm.  🙂

The Inventor and I rode our bikes about 4 miles into our town for breakfast the one morning.  It was a fun, summer adventure, and we enjoyed a simple breakfast together in town.  Did I mention that I live in the coolest town!  I must also mention the ride home is mostly up hill, that is why we had a “simple breakfast!”

I made pancakes and bacon on the griddle on our outdoor gas grill on the deck.  It is one of our favorite relaxing things to do in the summer.  We all then enjoy breakfast together on the deck.  This time we even invited the lone roofer who was still working today to come and join us! Here is a picture that includes our Fresh Air boy, The Questionator.  He was loving the pancakes so much he didn’t even put his fork down to smile. 🙂

  1. Mmmmm, now you have me craving pancakes and bacon! I love eating outside too, but it’s the time of year now when wasps are getting too prevalent so eating outside is no more for us.

    I think it’s so cool that you have hosted your Fresh Air Fund boy for seven years now.

  2. Doctors visits are no fun, but having a doctor with whom you have a connection or some rapport helps immensely.

    What a neat way for the Lord to provide for a new roof!

    Looks like your visiting young man is having some great experiences.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Sweet! I love that last picture! Hmmmm going through a hailstorm ( especially the AFTER hailstorm) and smile about it? You’re a positive character, I like that! Have a great week!

  4. Dear Sandy,

    Many years ago I had a couple of abnormal pap tests. It turned out to be a bacterial infection. In Jesus’ name, I speak life to not only the cells in Sandy’s cervix but her entire body.

    May Jesus bless you to overflowing,
    Bellann 🙂

  5. My Gyno is a Christian too as well as the kids pediatrician. I love them both dearly and have made going to the doctor so much more enjoyable. Love that you enjoy summers to its fullest.
    PTL for a new roof. That is awesome! WE need one too. Pray for a storm here. LOL

  6. Oh this looks like a great week. We got a hail storm a few years back and there must have been a lot of praying going on because at least a third of the town had new roofs put on!

  7. love your list this week! especially the breakfast on the deck part 🙂
    enjoy the rest of the summer…you all go back to school before us here in NY, right? (our first day back for teachers is 9/9 and my children go back on the 10th).
    Keep in touch!!
