Friday’s Fave Five
“We don’t thank enough because we don’t think enough. Concentrated remembrance turns up vast quantities of material that derive from God and then are happily re-expressed in thanksgiving.” (Praying with the Psalms by Eugene Peterson)
ONE. My grand-daughter turned two. We had a lovely party at a nearby park which had a playground and picnic tables in a small grove of redwood trees.
TWO. This text from my daughter-in-love about my grand-daughter: “Sofia and I are on the bus right now and she won’t let me put my feet up on the seat in front of me because she is saving it for you!” That just melted my heart!!!
THREE. Watching Murdach Mysteries on (free) Hulu. I discovered this new (to me) series and there are 6 free seasons on Hulu. This detective show is set in the late 1800’s in Toronto. Murdach is a catholic detective with reasoning skills like those of Sherlock Holmes. To solve the “who-donnit,” he uses new technology to his advantage.
FOUR. Decluttered for 6 hours this week. This was made possible because of binge-watching the Murdach Mysteries. Combining these two activities made a boring activity (decluttering) more than bearable and a frivolous one (watching TV) take on meaning. I took a HUGE garbage bag, a plastic tub, and grocery bag FULL of items to the thrift store this week.
FIVE. Dinner and a movie with a friend. Marsha and I have similar food preferences (no sugar, low carb, but lots of salad and soup please). And we have similar viewing preferences as well.
Lately we’ve been getting together to eat and watch The Good Witch movies (starring Catherine Bell from Jag and The Army Wives ). Go here to see the first movie for free. We were inspired to see all these now because the movies have been turned into a TV series. The 2 hour premiere is on February 28 on Hallmark.
Your Turn . . . So what makes your Fave Five list this week?
