So, without further ado, here is my Friday five for the first day of February:
1. A good day last Friday, cleaning and sorting at my childhood home. Still a long way to go there but it's good to see progress.
2. A day of wonderful fellowship with friends last Saturday. We got together with part of our family and some dear long-time friends for breakfast at Cracker Barrel.
Then, in the afternoon, we went to visit our old friends who have recently moved back to our state. We (especially Mr. T) helped them a lot with some projects around their new home, then they ordered an early supper of take-out pizza. Very good!
Following that we took our van and left it at a shop where it was to be repaired and then inspected. (More about this later...) We drove there in a fairly terrifying snow squall; thankful for safety!
And then we went back to my childhood home and spent a good bit of time cleaning and organizing. Mr. T took many trashbags to the dumpster!
What a day ... we were happy to be home snacking on popcorn by the end of it.

4. Christmas Club meeting yesterday at a local library. Always a fun and encouraging time to share what worked for us as well as make plans for the coming year's holiday.
5. Our van is still at the repair shop! Oddly enough, although this has been a major inconvenience in some ways, it has not been without its blessings. I haven't minded very much at all not being able to go anywhere, although it would have been nice to be able to get to the grocery store. It's been good to be home and get some things done here. Just trusting God's plan in this different, somewhat inconvenient week.

And there is this week's Friday five!
