Friday’s Fave Five – October 27, 2018

“In our world of greed, people measure success by accumulation. Christians [should] measure it by appreciations. We’re thankful for what we have, understanding that ‘a merry heart has a continual feast,’ Proverbs 15:15.”

Having a conditional feast sounds like a great way to live; so here are five appreciations from my last week. If you want to join this Friday meme. go to Susanne’s place. There is plenty of room.

ONE. Pizza and Pictionary. Once a year or so, the women at my church gather for a game night. This time we added pizza. YUMMY! I am a terrible drawer, and I do mean terrible. And I am not so hot at guessing, either. So I wasn’t expecting to really enjoy myself that much. BOY, was I WRONG! There were many times of laughter, deep belly laughter. Endorphins flowed all night long.

TWO. Pumpkin Patch. My daughter and I joined my daughter-in-law and her three kiddos at a pumpkin patch in Petaluma (1hr, 45mins away). On the way up I listened to my audio book. My son joined us later in the afternoon. We stayed there 4 hours, playing in a corn kernel pit, running through the hay maze, taking a tractor ride, eating lunch, milking cows and climbing tall stacks of hay bales. Then we went to a local brewery for dinner. Their nachos were so TASTY! There were many photo ops, lots of hugs, and many smiles.

THREE. Reverse Trick-or-Treating. I want to get to know my neighbors, so I spent two evenings going to their doors giving THEM treats. Although I was extremely nervous and my first night didn’t work out so well, I did persevere. Read this post to see what happened.

This is a sample of what I left by the door, when no-one answered.

FOUR. Audio Books. I listen to audio books when I drive a lot or when I get fed up with getting in my daily steps. Last week I was in the “fed up” stage and so listened to Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. Talk about plot twists! This is not the normal kind of book I read. It was on Reese Witherspoon’s book club choice for September.

FIVE. #Write31Days. I wrote 6/7 posts for my series on Acts of Kindness. I hope to get caught up this weekend. What I wrote last week . . .

    I have never heard of reverse trick or treating! What a neat idea! I started listening to audiobooks when we moved here and I had a longer commute to several places. I don’t enjoy time in the car, so audiobooks made the time go much faster. Then I expanded to listening to them while exercising or getting ready in the morning. I’m hooked now!

    Our family loves a game called Telestrations that involves drawing, and not being able to draw just makes it that much funnier. The game night and pumpkin patch outings sound like great fun!

    Looks like you had a fun time with the Grandkids. And the game night sounded like fun too.

    What a great idea to have for a ladies evening. I’m going to do that with my small group. Your day at the pumpkin patch sounds lovely! And I love the picture. Never heard of reverse trick or treating but what a great idea. When I was a kid all the neighbors knew each other and interacted, not so much now.
