1. Getting to walk four out of five days this week. I don't take that lightly because it's by no means a given, this time of year. Even though some of the days have been really cold -- yesterday was 10º -- we've had dry roads and that is such a blessing. We don't even need boots!
2. Being able to attend our granddaughters' winter concert on Monday evening. (One is in the chorus and the other in the band.) I was planning to go, but it didn't look likely for Mr. T to be able to get there. It was neat to see God's hand orchestrating events so that he got home from other responsibilities much earlier than expected and was able to get to the concert and see all of it. The kids did an amazing job. Their public high school has a fantastic music department (as does the local elementary school).
3. Finishing my last "official" handmade gift (there are still a few more small projects I'd like to do) and getting most of my Nevada gifts sent off. Just one more box to go, I think.
4. Seeing a Pileated Woodpecker on a roadside tree during our walk on Wednesday. What a gift! They tend to stay deeper in the forest. This is the closest I have ever been to one. Of course, I didn't have a camera, but the scene looked just about like the one below. You can't really tell from the photo, but a pileated woodpecker is just about the size of a crow. They are large birds.

And that is my Friday five for this week!
