Friday June 17, 2011 Can you name five blessings from your week? Susanne from Living to Tell the Story hosts Friday’s Fave Five each week. Click on over and see her if you’d like to join in!
Here are my favorites for the week:
1. Chicken Salad and time to fix it. I had to reach my twenties before I’d eat anything with mayonnaise in it, and when I did I realized I liked Chicken Salad. I don’t have fancy recipe – just a combination of chopped chicken, mayo, and chopped onion, celery, and carrots. Since it involves chopping, I often don’t have time to fix it. Now, thanks to summer, I do. And I’m enjoying it.
2. Traveling and a way to write while I do. Yes, summer means travel, and I love that! I used to lug along my big, old, heavy, slow laptop and never used it. Now I have a little, very portable device I can easily use, and I’m so excited!
3. Quiet. Just quiet. Part of summer, for me, is more quiet and I’m reveling in it.
4. Reading. Newspapers, posts, books – you name it. The more I read, the more ideas just flow. I’m enjoying all my reading and all the ideas it sparks.
5. This quote.
“Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars.” (Henry Van Dyke)
Enjoy the love and the work and the play and the stars this week!
