Friday five ~ August 23

Another week has flown by, and here it is Friday again!  Time for this week's edition of Friday five ...

Here goes:

1.  A very nice time visiting with my nephew and his family at my daughter's home last Friday.  He and his family don't get up to our area too often, so it's a special blessing to get together when they do.   In the photo below, my nephew's little boy makes the acquaintance of some of the chickens.

2.  A slower-paced yet productive day last Saturday.  I had lots of household tasks to catch up on and it was so nice to be able to work at a slower, more thoughtful pace.  So thankful that my help comes from the Lord!

3.  Our traditional corn roast at church last Sunday.  We had to tweak things a bit to make this activity (which we try to do as a send-off for our students each fall) work with our current schedule of services, but it did work out quite well.  My hubby and I husked dozens of ears of corn on Saturday so they could be soaked in salt water overnight in preparation.

4.  Our dear young friends Sam and Jennifer  and their boys were able to be with us for supper on Sunday evening.  My hubby made his famous waffles and everyone was happy.  I made fruit sauces to serve with the waffles as well as bacon and link sausages.  (This is much the same as what I wrote about in this post: Waffle Buffet, which includes recipes.) The fellowship was even better than the food!

 5.  Being able to get together for supper with my cousin at this family cottage on a remote pond, Tuesday evening.  It was a nice time!  My hubby and I loved watching dusk settle over the pond as we sat in rocking chairs on this porch.
 6.  And here is a bonus: Being able to get out and walk every day even though the weather has been hot and humid.  My friend and I have walked at 6 a.m. and it definitely helps to go that early.  Still, 94% humidity is 94% humidity, and it doesn't make for pleasant walking.  The humidity is going away this weekend, though, hopefully for good.

Well, there it is: this week's Friday five.  Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!


  1. Was it nice walking weather this morning? Very low humidity just now in my corner, though warm enough. Glad that you had a leisurely day for homemaking. Those are my favorite kinds of days.

  2. It was nice walking weather this morning, but the humidity here was still 90% or so at that time. Now it has diminished considerably and is breezy and just a lovely afternoon.

    Yes, a leisurely day for homemaking. I don't get many of those and it was a treat for sure.
