The Friday Five Good Things

Five good things that happened this week.

1. Had to run to Best Buy to get an HDMI connector so I could connect my old, still in good working condition monitor to the new computer. Got a pair of inexpensive speakers, too.

2. While having 5 Guys for the Young One's birthday dinner, a hummingbird kept looking into the sun room window.

3. Packed for my Sacred Art retreat to Enders Island

4. The contractor's big job got pushed back because of heavy rains so he was able to come out and install the granite post two weeks ahead of schedule.

5. Went to get a haircut and was nervous to hear the stylist I usually go to left the shop. I was pleased the woman who cut my hair did a really good job.

How was your week?

    1. It's always a little traumatic to go to a new stylist.

  4. I've never heard of Ender's Island so I had to look it up. Sounds like a cool place. Have fun, and tell us about the retreat when you get back, ok?

  7. My week has whizzed by, it's been a good one although very hot at times. I'm hoping for a cooler weekend.

    So pleased your haircut was ok, it's not good when a good stylist moves on.

    All the best Jan

    1. Saw on the news your heatwave. We had a few days respite. Heat and humidity will increase this week. I don’t mind. Better than snow ⛄️

  8. The retreat sounds interesting. Hummingbirds are such fun to watch, aren't they. I bought clippers for my hair lol I got tired of playing find-an-available-stylist ;)

    1. We came close to 100 last week though the heat index was a little over a hundred. Heat and humidity on the way back this week.

  10. What a great week you had. I'd give your contractor kudos. Goodness, CJ, I've never owned a monitor that didn't include speakers built in. OK, I had one I bought in 98 that I got rid of in 07, but every one after that had built in speakers. Glad you found comparability at least.

    I go to one of those shops where you get the next stylist in line. I found one about a year ago I loved her work. I was told I could request her, so now that's what I do. Sorry yours moved away.

    1. I go to the same kind of hair stylist. I would call before I left to see if she was working. They were always funny about requesting the person you wanted.
