Friday’s Fave Five October 13, 2017

“Praise God even when you don’t understand what He is doing.” ~ Henry Jacobsen

This week certainly brought uncertainty and questioning with all the fires in Northern California and the horrendous mass murder in Las Vegas. So it is even more important that we recount our blessings! Join with Susanne and others at Friday’s Fave Five.

ONE. Monterey Trip. Last weekend my daughter, Elizabeth, and I visited my niece, Kadie, at University in Monterrey. We walked the beach, cooked fresh trout, strolled through a Salvador Dali Museum, chatted, drank tea, and made food together. It was a FUN, delightful time.

TWO. Reading. Threads of Suspicion is a book fellow FFFer Barb recommended. I don’t recommend you read this book until the 3rd book is in print. Unless unlike me you can wait patiently to have some questions answered.

THREE. Project Piles. I am decluttering 31 minutes each day in October. My newest kick is the craft/art supplies. I am sorting this table full of stuff into project piles and then putting them into see-through, large, ziplock bags. It will be much easier to see what I have. And it will be much easier to grab a bag and start because everything is there. … I have been able to release some projects. 🙂

FOUR. Small Group. We had our 3rd meeting last night. And again it was a lot of laughing, probing discussion, some tears, and vulnerability. I am honoured to partner with these gals as we do life together and grow closer to each other and God. I shared this link about taking an online quiz to discover your love language. Knowing this information might help us to love on each other better.

FIVE. Hair cut. I have been trying to grow my hair into a different style, but after 4 months, it is clear that style is not for me. I must have shorter, layered locks. So I had my hair cut like it usually is. And it looks so much better.

Your turn . . .  Share what you’ve been grateful for. In these times of devastation, it is more important than ever to capture those things and treasure them.

    I love the idea you are doing in your craft room! I feel like mine is always messy even though I TRY to clean up after working on a project! I’m grateful for a lot of things but right now, grateful I work from home so I don’t have to commute (or even get out of my pj’s if I don’t want to!).

    Yes – the good haircut is an uplift like none other!!
    Decluttering – the life a “piles” person lives when she is married to a “clean look” person. Why didn’t we discover this before the “I do” moments? 🙂

    So glad you enjoyed Dee’s book! It is nice when you have all the books in a series and can go right through them. But she’s one author whose books I usually get pretty soon after publishing.

    The Monterrey trip and small group sound fun. The project piles and bags sound like a good idea.

    My hair only seems to work at a certain style and length, too.

    Sounds like a good week. Must be good to get your projects organised. A good haircut is always a boost.

    it sounds like that trip to Monteray was fun!

    i love getting things organized around my home, my agenda this weekend besides hiking is to tackle my checkbook and my desk!

    yay for knowing what style you like for your hair…always a plus!
    happy weekend!

    I just checked with my local library and put both 1st and 2nd books on hold! Thanks for the link to Barbara’s review.

    I’m growing my hair out too and am liking it–at least for now.

    I love being organized–we are working on the shed this week.

    Have a great weekend!

    Growing hair out is so hard. I’m a longer hair wanna be but get too impatient with the process and usually don’t end up like the result. Love a nice fresh haircut. I usually don’t start a series until it’s all out. I like to read them one after the other. That one sounds good. Dee Henderson is a great author. Your Montery trip sounds like fun.
