Friday again, and time to count five blessings from the week just past. Here goes:
1. Visits with two more of my cousins, on Friday and Wednesday. So much fun to catch up with them a little bit. Passing on finds from the homestead has brought us into contact lately! I got together with Wayne (next to me in the photo below) on Friday and Shirley (far left in the photo below) on Wednesday. I met with Dale (between Shirley and Wayne) last Thursday.
2. Some days at home this week. It was such a blessing to be able to get a few household tasks done. Seeing my desk piled high with papers and other stuff has been really demoralizing. I've also listed some items on Etsy and made a few sales this week.

4. A campfire in our own back yard on Monday night. Such a blessing to have a nice stone fire ring back there. The past couple years we have not even gotten a campfire permit to use the metal ring that we had. Now we're kicking ourselves for not having done that. But my hubby was so busy working, it was a whole different season of life. He had no time for things like this in the evening on weekdays.
5. Eating outdoors as often as we can to soak up the summer. We got a nice patio table and chairs a couple years ago for our back deck. So thankful. Eating outdoors -- and in fact, spending as much time outdoors as possible -- has been so helpful in this difficult time of Covid. Below you see a typical supper -- wrap sandwiches, a salad, and iced tea!
And that's this week's Friday five! Happy weekend, everyone!
