It’s NICE to be back to blogging and participating in my favorite Friday Fave Five! I have missed all of you!
My week started with a PERSONAL DAY from school on Monday! I can not tell you what a nice day this was! Drums and I had what I like to call a Marriage Mender day. We just enjoyed some time being together! We went to this amazing smorgasbord for breakfast! Oh my can you say Oink, Oink….yes that would have been me. 🙂 So after indulging in sheer gluttony, we headed out on a “rails to trails” bike ride. It was a lovely ride through a heavily forested area, with several historical landmarks along the way. It was such a pleasant day, and so needed!
Another fave this week was FRESH Strawberries!! I am a big advocate of the Buy Local, Buy Fresh movement. Living in the middle of farm country, fresh produce is easy to find and strawberries are abundant this time of year. Wow is all I can say about strawberries!
A long bike ride on a lovely spring evening is another favorite! Being so busy the last 2 weeks, I have not been able to keep up with my exercise routine. So this week I have been back at it…..and a bike ride in the peaceful countryside is always a joy for me. I have arthritis in my right knee, and I have found the more active I am the less it bothers me!
Wild Phlox! They are blooming all over our woods. The Inventor picked a TON of them the other day, and put them in a vase . They sure add a nice touch of spring to our house.
And certainly last but not least….. is something I am looking forward to this Sat. I AM GETTING A MASSAGE!! Drums and The Inventor got me a gift card for a massage at Christmas…..and yes I know this is May…..but this busy mom is finally getting that massage. Can’t wait!
