Friday five for July 17

All of the flower photos (some cultivated flowers and some wild) are from our summer 2017 trip to Nevada.  Here are a few blessings from the past week:

1.  Supper on Saturday night with our daughter, son-in-law and four of the local grandkids.  Good to get together with them again after being away for so long!

2.  Old friends over for lunch with us after church.   These are friends from long ago that we just reconnected with at the TWNE couples' retreat last fall.

3.  Strength and endurance during busy days with lots of heat and humidity.  Wisdom too for meal planning and preparation on such hot days.

4.  Lots of work accomplished on clearing out the homeplace.  It's getting close!

5.  Time to work on my Christmas in July blog posts and Etsy listings.  I only have five more posts to write and schedule.  If you haven't visited my Christmas blog this month, do head on over!  It's been good to add a few new listings to my Etsy shop as well.  I have literally thousands more things to list!

And there's my Friday five for today.  Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!


  1. Beautiful flower pics. You've had a busy week. So glad that you are seeing light at the end of the tunnel.

  2. The flowers are all so pretty. You know with all the goings on I haven't complained at all about the heat but it sure enough like a sauna here. That might be a first for me:)

  3. OH, love the flowers...and also the news about what you've been doing. So happy for you to be getting things done at the "homeplace" and enjoying your time with family, etc. Stay healthy and happy!!

  4. I will head over to your Christmas blog. This summer has been kind of a dud, so I plan to surprise my kids with a Christmas in July day. Thanks for sharing your blessings and the flower photos. It's always nice to have a dose of things that are beautiful and joyful.
    Laughter and Consistency

  5. I always enjoy reading the Friday fives. It is fun to see what each person picks as the highlight. I have tried to be more intentional in checking out your Christmas blog. Thanks for the work you put into it. I love seeing all the retro things there.


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my kitchen table! I love company here in my kitchen, so be sure to leave a comment so I'll know you've visited! I'll answer your questions and comments here on the blog unless you request otherwise.
