Friday’s Fave Five August 18, 2017

Wow – this week has flown. I didn’t even make time to write. But today, right now, I WILL make time to recount five blessings from this past week. I am linking this to Susanne’s meme, Friday’s Fave Five.

I made more chia seed jam, blueberry this time. For breakfast I had it with yogurt and Qi’a. I made one pint of jam and used only 3 tablespoons of sugar.

Mary and I walked our monthly “professional” 5k: The Susan B. Anthony Fun Run/Walk. We improved our time by 2 minutes. There were fun, free additions like a goody bag, massage and raffle. Mary won that colourful striped bag.

6 weeks ago my daughter lost her copy of my car key while we were camping. This past weekend she found it while hiking in the same area. Elizabeth didn’t find it on the ground. She found it in her jacket pocket.

This week I decided in addition to walking a 5K monthly, I want to also walk one each week. My daughter and I did that one evening. This photo documents our last steps of that 5K. (I want to “step up” my commitment to health.)

I have been craving Lemon Meringue Pie for 3 weeks. Tuesday was National Lemon Meringue Pie Day, so I resisted no longer. I always think of my Grandma Ruby when I think of this pie, so she was the unseen, missing guest at our table. … Now take a moment to reflect on your favourite blessings from this past week.

    OK, the car key thing is hilarious. You’ve had a good week 🙂

      Yes, it was funny. All Elizabeth had to do was check her pocket. Which of course she did when she next put it on.

    Wow, that’s amazing about the car key! Glad she found it! Good for you for walking! I need to get back at it after company leaves. The pie looks good!

      A main reason I have been so faithful is because my daiughter asks me every night if I want to walk.It is so much easier to be faithful when there is someone else.

    I was laughing over the car key issue. Had a similar thing here. I had lost a recipe booklet – thought I must have thrown it out. When I started planning for our family holiday I got out my folder from last year and there was the recipe booklet! Well done on the walking. Yes I do find it helps to have a step counter. I try to meet my goal each day but don’t always manage it. Having someone to walk with must help too. Enjoy your weekend.

      So glad you found your recipe booklet. Funny enough whenever I lose something I always say, “I must have lost it.”
      Yes, it really helps to have a walking partner especially in my home.

    I would take lemon meringue pie OR A lemon bar any time. Until you just mentioned it, I forgot about lemon bars. I am going to see if there is a paleo recipe.
    You continually inspire me with your hikes. I look forward to seeing photos.

    I have a pedometer–step counter–which I use every day. Then I write down the number of steps on a sheet of paper each evening. I plan to check on my averages and see how I do each week.
    I am so proud of you for your continued pushing of yourself to increase your walking.
    Your story of the found key is great!

    Susan, your comment on my FFF made me smile. Believe me, it took all kinds of self-control for me NOT to take a big bite out of those biscuits. They are made with wheat flour and I’ve tried them with one or two GF versions, they just don’t fluff up the same.

    Your lemon meringue pie looks delish. I think I’ve seen a couple of paleo lemon bar recipes that look pretty good. If I can find one, I’ll send it your way.

    Thank goodness that spare key was found! Pockets are the first place we look for “lost” keys anymore 😉

    I’ll have to look back over your posts and see what you thought about the chia seed jam. I like mine spooned over broken meringues for a quick pavlova.
