Friday five ~ May 29

Here goes with another Friday five!  (Isn't the illustration above simply the sweetest?  It came from a 1980s calendar my girls loved as children.)

1.  Days and days of beautiful, sunny weather.  Wednesday felt far too warm for May; we had 94º here.  But it has been lovely to have such beautiful spring days to enjoy in the midst of the difficulties.  It really seems that God has given us this spring beauty and warmth to encourage us and to point us to Him.  Every season is in His control, and this one is no exception.

2.  Eating out on Friday night.  Not takeout -- a real restaurant where we sat down and ordered and had our food brought to us, and everything!  Yes, the dining was outdoors, but it was such fun.  Fried haddock has never, ever tasted so delicious.

3.  Getting the process started for several important tasks that need to be accomplished.  It's a blessing to see how God blesses and prospers our way as we look to Him.

4.  Time this week to list some new things in my Etsy shop (link in sidebar), plus the fun of finding several unique items I'll be listing this summer.  Below is a sweet notecard I hope to list this evening.  So seasonal ... lily of the valley is blooming right now in our gardens!

5.  An ice cream date with my hubby on Tuesday evening.  Ice cream season has begun!

And there is my simple Friday five for this week.  Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! 😀


  1. Eating out? Now that perked me right up! None of that going on in my corner nor do I have any hope of it happening soon. Politics. All politics.

    Thankfully, Mercifully, The Lord is in charge.

  2. I'm so thankful that the thought of us eating out perked you up, Vee! At first our governor was quite reasonable, but he is no longer as reasonable as he was. Eating outdoors is allowed and -- from what I hear, possibly eating in could be allowed later this summer. Or, I know it's also possible that if "contact tracing" shows "infections" from outdoor restaurant dining, we could go completely backwards. I'm trusting that won't happen.

    Yes! Thankfully, Mercifully, The Lord is in charge of this and all things. He knows the end from the beginning.

  3. Indeed a lovely illustration, What a wonderful blessing to be able to sit and dine in a restaurant, we haven't had this pleasure for months, hopefully real soon!
    Ice cream dates are the best!.
    Thank you for sharing,
    Have a great weekend.
