Time now for Friday's Fave Five, brought to you by Susanne at Living To Tell The Story.
1. Retreat with friends. Last weekend I headed out for 3 days/nights of scrapbooking with friends. I love going on retreats for a multitude of reasons - a beautiful time to renew, rebuild and refresh friendships. We sat at our tables and worked on projects and one of the best parts was when we would hear "Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner is ready!". It's great to be somewhere and not have to worry at all about fixing something to eat. I was teased towards the end about being a social butterfly because I love to flit from table to table and talk to everybody.
2. New glasses. I had gotten a new prescription and ordered my glasses, so was very pleased that they were ready when I got back in town from retreat. Keith and I went on Monday to pick them up and lo and behold - there is a bit of bling on each side that is....a butterfly! I had completely forgotten about that part and it made me smile to see it after hearing that at retreat. I can see so clearly now and always enjoy right after getting new glasses.
3. Vacation. Keith and I are using up some vacation time (we're at the 'use it or lose stage') so have this week off work. In addition to the trail riding, we also put down a new floor in the kitchen and dining room. I guess really I shouldn't say we as it was entirely "he" that did it. He's putting the last touch on it right now and I love it. We even celebrated earlier this morning by going and buying a new broom. ;)
4. Thanksgiving. We're hosting the family meal this year and I'm tickled pink. I pulled up the menu that we used last year as a base for this year. There are some additions and deletions, but it sure makes it easier to have that list in front of me to work off of.
5. BSF. I'm finally really hitting my groove on this Bible study and look forward to it all the time. Monday night I will admit that I wasn't really feeling like going (still tired from retreat!), but went anyway and ended up getting my socks blessed off! I've never been in a study quite like this one where I've really had to work at some of the answers. I will admit that sometimes I get frustrated at having to work some of the answers out in my head, but I will also admit that I've learned more in these first few months than I ever would've imagined. God is very good to have led me here.
