Fav Five

For today, I have some favorite things I have come across this past week.  5 items of  note or distinction.   (credit to Google Images for first 3 images, Thanks)

1.  Payday.  Yes many of us have our regular paydays...mine seemed to be very welcome this time.  I love my job, I love my job,  I love my job, even when the pupil load and teacher demands are high.

2.   Family reunion.  I know,  some of you run and hide when that is mentioned.  I have a history of fun family reunions.   This  drawing represents the marshmallow roasts by the camp fire and singing time.  My dad and  cousin Ron played guitar while everyone sang.   40-80 folks.

         I know that sounds rather simple....no, it was
FANTASTIC.


3.    I helped a friend with some serious shopping.  She found some new shoes, on sale.  A new blouse for free (she opened a charge card that paid for her item) and we had time to shop more and to eat at Cheese Cake Factory.  I ordered the Avocado Egg Rolls that I realize was due to the suggestion  of the previous week, from my sister,  simplesequins.com  .   Ok,  these are not just good...they are wonderful.  But best yet, I ran into a cute, darling server who works there...such a nice visit.


4.  Popular Post of Past Postings....Pristine Poplars Projecting from Pastures....hahahhaha.

Here is another view of poplars.....what shape do you see in that cloud?


 5.  Thank you all for coming to join my blog....I love you.   Hahahah, what, too smusshy?
It is so much fun to meet you all in blog ville.  I appreciate you coming in and commenting and I love to go visit with you, too.  It has been a great week.  Sorry if I missed you,  I will do some catch up on Saturday.

  22. Mary, I see a bunny in the clouds. Do you know I have a thing for clouds? I even did a post about them at one time. The avacado rolls look so yummy. Oh, I miss our family reunions. We had some good times. It seems that when the kids all got older, we have less family reunions. Ahhh, I bet your dad plays the guitar so sweetly - my son is just learning to play. Have a nice weekend.

  28. I love it when the blogger gets all warm and smusshy with two "ss" :) One last thing: avocado egg rolls would be my newest favourite thing, but I'm sure I'll never be in a nice enough restaurant to enjoy them. Unfortunately, McDonald's hasn't included fresh produce in their daily menu.

  31. I see a rabbit in the clouds. One of my favorite things to do when sitting on my patio and there are huge fluffy clouds in the sky is to try to see what I can find! Yep, I love simple things like that. The avocado rolls look good!

  33. I too saw the rabbit in the clouds.

    Family reunions always sound like fun to me, maybe because my family doesn't have them.
