Friday’s Fave Five (10/2/2015)

FAll FFFAnother week passed and so I get to look for the blessings and share them. Below are five of my fave experiences. Go to this website for the current FFF meme.

One.  Fall Bucket List achievement on target. On September 23 I posted this year’s fall bucket list. This year I divided the list into months. And the September list is almost all done! Hurray me especially since I have a finishing problem.

i cannot believe this turned out so CUTE. I keep staring at it!

i cannot believe this turned out so CUTE. I keep staring at it! Is it okay that I am proud of it and myself?

Two. Made a Fall wreath and hung it on my office door. Susanne, you might have created a monster. That is two fall projects in two weeks! More deets are at this post.

Three. upgraded my phone WITH a minimum of fuss. After only a little trouble I was able to download (or is it upload) my complete contacts list. I was sad  that I did lose all my texts. So far nothing is too different except that Siri seems to be having more problems than usual understanding me.

Four. Started my write31days project. I will write about Finding Laughter every day for the month of October. Day one is written and a decent schedule for the rest of the month is sketched out.  My goal this month is simple, laugh more.

Five. Worthwhile girls’ program: International Princess Club. On Sunday I attended a Divas & Desserts Party where the founder (of IPC) explained how helping girls accept their worth and love (from/of God) is the number 1 way to combat human trafficking. I appreciate Amy’s work and passion.

Your Turn . . . Share a blessing from your week.

    Oh, Siri! I keep all of her epic mistakes (I take screen shots of them). My favorite one is when I texted a former student whilst driving (using Siri, of course), and the student texted back asking “Who is this?” I used Siri to answer back and I said, “Mrs. Ojeda.” Hours later, I looked at my phone and realized that Siri had said, “Al Queda” I kept looking in my rearview mirror, expecting to see big black SUVs tailing me ;).

    Glad you were able to upgrade your phone without much fuss.

    Your wreath is beautiful ! I never do bucket lists or any lists, I know I won’t keep what I write, lol !

    I am so looking into the writing project. It seems like fun.

    Oh my goodness, Anita’s comment! LOL and Yikes at the same time. Your wreath looks wonderful and now I want to try and make one!

    Haha! Anita’s comment made me laugh and cringe both. I admire your craftiness in making the wreath–that’s not my gift (I wonder if I could knit one).
    I’ll check out the writing project. I should do something to give myself a nudge in the writing by the writing teacher dept.
