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 past week:
1. A reprint. Laity Lodge Family Camp contacted me this summer about reprinting one of my posts, Balcony or Basement, for their newsletter. It came out last week, and it was nice to see that on my little screen.
2. My surprise. After ten clues about my birthday surprise, I got to guess, and I was right. We’re off to visit Key West. It’s not far away, and we’ve never been. Looking forward to seeing Hemingway’s house, some historical museums, and a few beautiful sunsets. I love most of all that this was my hubby’s invention—all on his own.
3. A great fruit market. We’ve discovered this nice little fruit market not far from home. The black plums are just awesome, the tomatoes tasty, and the green beans so much nicer than those in the grocery store. Our new favorite place.
4. A classic storybook. As I’ve mentioned before, my class is reading The Tempest. I picked up several resources at the public library to help in that process, and I found the most beautiful storybook that tells the story of The Tempest. The pictures are lovely and the phrasing elegant but easy to understand. I love it. I’ll be shopping for more books like this for my Grandmom shelf!
5. A quote:
“You don’t really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around—and why his parents will always wave back.” (William D. Tammeus)
The mystery of human nature, all tied up in the parent-child relationship. Sweet, huh?
Hope you have a happy, cozy fall week!
