No great post this Friday (ha ha) but I am going to link up with Amy over at Love Made My Home for another Five on Friday. I'm just going to post five things from my week.
A CAR!! - I have wheels again. I am SO excited. My dear daughter has been 'borrowing' one car, my son 'borrowing' the other car and I have been without a car for a over a year. It isn't so easy over here in small town America without a car. There is limited (really terrible) buses and nothing else. Shops are all mostly away from one another. Daughter has purchased a new-to-her car that has four wheel drive (better in the snow!) so I have my dear old car back again. I know it was a choice we made to lend the cars to the 'kids' but they needed them to get to their jobs and get on their feet. Since I stopped working I didn't really 'need' a car.
READING - Do I need any more books? Nope. I did however have some on hold at the library that seemed to come up at once and I actually have a car to go pick them up! Now all I need is the time to read them.
EATS - lot of goodies around at this time of the year. One of our family favourite sweets is this great Perfect Peppermint Patties recipe. The trick to these is keeping the actual patty really cold.
Lots of other goodies in the works and I will try to take pictures and share in another post.
MAKES - I always end up deciding to make 'just one more thing'. Last year it was an album for MIL & FIL of our trip to Washington. This year it's a mini album for daughter of her first year with Shasta, her rescue husky. I haven't quite finished it - that's how crazy I am - just embellishments to go. They arrived today so will work on in the morning.
And lastly I want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season whatever holiday you celebrate. I have really enjoyed meeting new people in blogland this year. I've 'discovered' lots of new blogs and feel that when I visit I'm visiting with a friend. It's been a truly interesting and inspiring year. Thank you all who visit with me. Also want to thank Amy who has kept Five on Friday going despite tough times in her life.
