Friday’s Fave Five – Week 4, 2014
“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.” Because I want my gratitude to be huge too, I am looking through last week and sharing 5 favorite gratitudes. Join other gratitude hunters at Susanne’s Living to Tell the Story.
One. My son’s birthday. I am proud of and love this silly, responsible, loving, teasing, 31-year-old man. We had pizza, German chocolate cake, and an apple crumble pie (with a dairy-free, egg-free, and gluten-free crust) as our party foods. I loved every minute of celebrating Tim and being with the family.
Two. Baby time. I got to babysit my granddaughter in the morning before the party. We took a long walk. Then I went to the bilingual play group at the library with my daughter-in-love and my granddaughter. We ended our time with lunch.
Three. Crafting. My daughter and I even got to have “special” time. We transformed some tea cups into candle holders. Go here to see what we did. My daughter’s upstairs neighbor joined in the conversation. Soon the 3 of us will make more candles.
Four. Tea series. I learned that January is “Hot Tea Month.” I have a LOT of tea in my tea drawer. So I decided to drink a new tea every day (from that drawer) and write about that and the mug/ tea-cup I drink it from. I am also doing “crafty” things too, like hand-sewing tea bags, making a candle in a tea-cup, and making lemon cream cheese mints. Check back as there are more crafty things to come. It has been fun and I am drinking my backlog of tea.
Five. Cookie of the month. Marsha has a plan to bake a new cookie each month. I like that plan so I horned in on her idea. We baked Marshmallow-Lemon Snowdrifts. This cookie is a WINNER. I am freezing one to see how it is. If it passes the taste-test, I will freeze at least 7 of them for our annual tea. We ended the evening by watching World War Z. That was my first zombie movie. Great evening.
