December 21 --- Friday five

Friday again!  How can that be?

Regardless of how it got here, Friday is indeed here and so it's time for another Friday five.  Here goes:

1.  Being able to make a Christmas tree skirt out of lovely Christmas fabric my Nevada daughter had gifted me with some years ago.  I blogged about this in detail over on my Christmas blog (link in sidebar) if you want to read more.

2.  Ladies Christmas fellowship at church last Saturday -- a nice time, and a blessing to see others use their gifts to bring an event like this together.  Again, more details over on my Christmas blog if you would like to read more about this fellowship.

3.  Getting out for a walk 3 days this week.  Yesterday in particular was a gorgeous sunny day.  So thankful for dry roads to walk on even in mid-December.

4.  An enforced day of rest this week as I wasn't feeling well for most of Wednesday.  I got out to walk, but actually took two lengthy naps.  At the time, I chafed that nothing was getting done, but can only conclude that I needed the rest.

5.  Friends who share good recipes.  I'm just about to try a recipe for Lemon Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies which a friend shared with me.  And also, my walking partner shared this recipe with me: Amazing Muffin Cups -- and wow, what a good recipe!  I took this to the ladies' fellowship, which was a brunch, and also blogged about it in more detail on my Christmas blog.

In fact, if you haven't been visiting Mrs. T's Christmas Kitchen during this season, you really need to.  I've been posting there every day (as well as here) and I really hope you will stop in and visit for a cup of Christmas cheer.

Another Friday five in the books.  Wow, how swiftly this year has passed!


  1. I enjoyed reading your five!! Going to check out that recipe right now!! Thanks for sharing!!

    1. Oh, I hope you enjoy the recipe if you try it, Terri. It's very good!

  2. You just marched right on through not feeling well... no one knew! I am glad that you allowed yourself the rest. After shopping in the rain all day (and getting quite damp), I’m ready for bed good and early. First good day, I am making your fudge recipe.

    1. Hope you got a really good rest, Vee! And I hope you get a good day soon so that you can make the fudge!

      Yes, I sure did need the rest on Wednesday. Thankful I could sleep several hours during the day but managed to take a 45-minute walk (minus the steeper part of the hill) anyway.

  3. How on EARTH did I not know about this other blog of yours?!

    1. I don't know! The link has been right there in the sidebar all along! =)

      But I am so happy you found your way to my kitchen table! I always enjoy your visits!
