High Five for Friday!

Happy Friday! Once again, High Five for Friday features five highlights of the week, my way of focusing on the little things that remind me to stay grateful.


1 – Grand Weekend. It’s always grand to see my parents again, even if a long weekend is much too short. We are all sad to see them go, especially Amelia!

2 – Independence Day. This year we celebrated the traditional American pastimes of eating, book browsing, and making some extra $ at McKay’s Used Books. The neighborhood fireworks that we could see from our backyard (that didn’t wake the baby!) were icing on the patriotic cake.

3 – Sew Day. I haven’t made much time to sew lately, so a dedicated sewing day with a quilty friend was exactly what I needed to log some machine time.

4 – Home Improvement. We save all our house projects for my parents’ visits, and we crossed a lot of items off the list, including some things we didn’t even know we needed to do (like applying WD-40 to the garage doors and interior doors). And there was one more surprise the morning before they left: donuts for breakfast and a big planter for herbs! (The fluttering butterfly is solar! Amelia loves it.)

5 – Prunes. The 8-month sleep regression is hitting us hard, coupled with teething, new skills to practice, AND some constipation to boot. At least one thing works to clear out the digestion system: prunes! And Amelia loves them, thank goodness.
