The Friday Five Good Things

Five good things that happened this week.

1.For Mother's Day, Himself gave me a buoy bell windchime, with a black bear on the clapper, grilled Little Princess steaks (filet mignon wrapped in bacon), and baked brownies for dessert.

2. I also Skyped with the Eldest

3. I had fun playing with the Scan n Cut machine (to be seen in future blogposts)

4.  Himself also gave me a weather station as a very, early birthday present

5. With the weather finally warming up, we moved the television into the sun room.

How was your week?

  1. I love that wind chime. Teddy said he loves the bear on it. Himself is very kind and thoughtful. I'm looking forward to seeing the Scan n Cut results.

  2. You had a good week and got a great present and good food - wonderful. My week was not so good but it could have been worse, and that's always worth something! Valerie

    1. Lucky you. We’re still waiting to see what the governor allows to be opened up on Mon. Starting phase 1. Covid cases have been on the rise this week and that’s alarming.

  7. That Photo Is Worth A Thousand Words - Lovely Little Princess Steaks On The Grill - Weather Station??? YES - Weatherunderground Is The Ideal Site For Backyard Stations - My Station Was Live Until Two Summers Ago When My Station Was Stolen - The Creep Cut The Wires And Left Them Dangling - I Am Willing To Bet, The Outdated Software Isn't Even Compatible With Their System - I Am Telling You This So That Himself Thinks About Installation, Location, Height,etc - Wish I Lived Near By As I Would Be More Than Willing To Help In Trade For A BBQ'd Meal

    All The Best This Weekend,
    Cheers

  12. Wow CJ!! Happy Mother's Day! I love your windchime and your special dinner! What a special week you had! And, you got to speak to your eldest too!
    If you want, I invite you back to my blog. I wrote in my description, the wrong painting to look at! I meant the one that is in my header. The black and white swirl one. I have also gave one more clue. I'm inviting you back, because I know you are good at finding things!! LOL!
    Big Hugs!
