Friday Fave Five


This has actually been a rough week! Well, that is a great way to start off my Friday Fave Five?!  So let’s see if I can come up with for some favorites amidst a frustrating week………

  • SportTman and I were stranded in a Burger King one night for about 2 hours, while we waited for Drums to pick us up, but he could not get to us.  He was surrounded by a parade, he parked in a neighborhood to watch SportTman run a race, but apparently there was NO way out.  He was totally closed in by the parade route!  So SportTman and I tried to make the best of it and made tons of goofy recordings on our cell phones of our adventures in Burger King.  The videos were actually quite hilarious! 🙂

  • We had a free spaghetti dinner at our church for The Inventor’s cross country team.  It was a pre-race pasta party.  About 40 kids from the team showed up and it was a GREAT outreach.  The kids got to hear testimonies from 2 local runners, and they clearly heard about coming to  a saving knowledge of Christ.  What a great outreach for a public school cross country team.

  • I was having a crazy day yesterday, going to school and taking care of the poor Inventor who was just diagnosed with swine flu/H1N1.  After a long visit to the Dr, I dropped her at home and made a much needed grocery store stop.  It was right before dinner, but I must confess that I indulged in the most scrumptious pumpkin doughnut I have ever had!  I am looking forward to heating one up in the microwave for breakfast this morning.  Pumpkin doughnuts….Mmmmmmm!

  • I live in the greatest small town around!  The Inventor and I had such a glorious, relaxing, FUN Saturday morning last week.  We went to a few yard sales, got a NY style bagel and cream cheese and coffee for me at my fav local coffee shop.  We then hit our local farmer’s markets for yummy baked goods, fresh made concord grape juice and some delicious raisin bread.  It was a beautiful fall morning and the two of us had fun together and had vital time to chat about things that had been on her mind.

  • Today is a dress down day at school, it’s a rainy Friday a perfect day for a dress down day!

Yipee, I came up with 5 things!  Now I am off to put my jeans on, eat my pumpkin doughnut with a good cup of coffee and head off to school with a better attitude!

For more Friday Fave Five visit Susanne.

* For those wondering about my daughter with H1N1, it was running rampant at her middle school!  Several of her friends have already had it.  It tends to last about 2-3 days, and kids usually run a high temp with it.  She is on day 2, and had a much better night last night. 🙂


  1. I LOVE how you always have positive things to say!!!! I love reading your Friday Fave’s… I hope you’re little sweetie starts feeling better soon!!!

  2. getting stranded can be a good thing… makes us slow down! I hope your dd is feeling better! Poor thing! did you link up at Susanne’s?

  3. Anything pumpkin is truly meant to be enjoyed!I understand the rough week part and that’s what makes this particular exercise so beneficial for me! If nothing else, I focus on truth. =)

    Hope this next week is a little easier for you!

  4. Great way to make the best of being stranded! I’ve never had a pumpkin doughnut — sounds good!

    I hope your daughter feels better soon. None of us has had the swine flu, but they did close down my youngest’s school because so many were out sick.

    That outreach sounds awesome!

  5. aw man, I’m coveting your dress down day..I’m just home and still in my work clothes..we were told by the principal that this year will contain fewer dress down days! BOO!!! altho on the 20th I get to wear jeans as we’re taking the kiddos to the pumpkin patch/hayride/harvest fest….yeah!!

    Love your list but will be praying for that flu to leave quickly!! take care of your self, too!!

  6. YUMMMMMMYYYY DONUTS!!!! Ok, I better stop now! 🙂 Glad your daughter is getting better, I’ll be praying for her and your family.

  7. I came back to see if my comment posted yesterday. WordPress was seeming to have a problem and I see it didn’t. Sorry about that. Glad your girl is doing better. Your Saturday with her sounds fun and yummy. And I can say I have never had a pumpkin doughnut.

  8. How could there be pumpkin donuts and me unaware?? Was it a Penn. Dutch thing do you think? It’s making me hungry! Hope your daughter is feeling better. And hope no one else catches it.


  9. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do LOVE those little Welches fruit snacks. My 2 years old grandson introduced them to me and I have become a big fan.

    Glad to hear you also enjoy a SNAP. Just a few minutes off my feet with my eyes closed can really restore me! Sounds like you had quite a busy week. Hope your daughter is feeling better. Blessings to you and your family!
