Friday’s FAVe FIVE


If the Heavens gave everyone a gift this week it must have been snow.  Everywhere I went on the internet I saw beautiful Winter scenes, it’s amazing what a photo looks like without contrast.

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story has encouraged us to look into our week and pick 5 things to be thankful for, blessings as they are called. So join us in a weekly FFF as we express ourselves for what we are blessed.

Friday’s favourite five #32

Seeing I forgot it was Friday until 10am this morning I’ll have to get caught up by slowing down a little.

1. Memory. I’m looking for one, do you know where I might be able to purchase just a small one.  Have you ever used a bread machine without the paddle? Where is the blessing? I realized from the sound and added it like extra ingredients later, perhaps it will tour out after all, then if it didn’t it would be unleaven bread anyway, unleaven the paddle the next time.

2. Late nights. This past week I have not gone to bed before 12 midnight, perhaps I think I might miss out on something. Seems to me the later I stay up the earlier I wake up.

3. Live Chat. The French Gardener and I have been setting up a live chat on our web site so people from away will be able to ask questions about Prince Edward Island, Bed and Breakfasts and just stay in touch after they have left.  We got it installed last night and it passed the first test.  I think my icon is cute have a look on the right side bar.  http://besidethetrail.ca/

4. Braxton. Although he has been trained not to bark this week he has been upset by a black cat that sits on the snowbank and tempts him.  It is cute, I trained him not to bark and if he does he is to go to my room.  So he jumps up on the couch barks at the cat, then heads straight for the bedroom door and sits there until I open it for him, so he can hid (from the guests we don’t have right now)

5. I always get to 5 and get stuck. Think think think…. oh, I know.  I can build my own web site and I did the link in #3 however when it comes to this blog, the placement of side bar, and page set up I am lost like in a corn maze.  I’m so, so, so blessed to have a handy husband who can be a Mr. fix’it all the time.  Glad your shoulder is much better as well 😉

So I can’t believe I forgot it was Friday.  Everyone has left the building and I have a couple of hours to myself… SCRAPBOOKING HERE I COME

Wow! this week has gone by faster than any other. I missed three days out of the middle with an intestinal flu like symptoms. I’ll just remove those three days from the week and find something to share about the two days left.

Friday’s favourite five #31

1. Winter sleigh rides. Although I didn’t get any exercise this week at all I did take in a sleigh ride. This week the couch and I became best friends as I spent 3 days there being sick. Monday I was fine they should have put me out behind this sleigh and made me run that would have made up for the week. Oh well, I’m feeling a tiny winy bit better today, at least I’m at my computer.

2. Electric throw. This past Christmas I received an electric throw. Lets just say it was a well used gift this week.

3. Well water. I moved away from our family farm house in July of 08. I just love the water there and every so often I go over and fill up a jug. Over the past two months the kids have been filling up two water jugs and bringing them over when they come to visit because I like the water. The house is up for sale and the joke is that we will have a conditional to sale that mom can get drinking water.

4. A blog a day. I have tried to maintain a blog a day for some time. I believed I needed to keep the interest in order to keep the reader. In an earlier post I wrote about this and got a lot of email responses to how you felt on keeping up with blogging, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Again thank you for sharing this with me, because over the past three days when I was sick I never once felt guilty of not being here. However the French Gardener was thinking he would have to take the reins and come on board this am, but I’m here. Not for long as I need to rest again, but I’ll get caught up on my reading by the time the week is through.

5. From the French Gardener.
Physiotherapy, especially when covered by medical insurance. For a couple of years I have been struggling with shoulder pain. I finally decided to talk to the doctor about it. He sent me for physio. The therapists were great and very thorough in examination and explanation. After 10 days of being faithful to their recommended exercises I would say 80% of the discomfort is gone. When spring arrives I should be in great shape to resume my gardening duties.

Starting the week off right with a sleigh ride.

It turned out to be a beautiful cold crisp evening, thankful for the hot chocolate afterwards.

I’m privileged to be here, to share and read. I’m thankful to Susanne for hosting Living to Tell the Story and I’m going to see her right now, you can too.

xo, cindy
