Friday's Fave Five - 3/8/13

Link to Friday's Fave Five blog.

It's been a busy week for me.  Two baby showers - one to attend, one to help give - and an evening with my dear friend Gretchen, along with working fulltime, made for not much blogging time.

1. We had a lovely birthday dinner last weekend with several of Mike's family, to celebrate the mutual birthday of two of his sisters.  And then on Monday night to have dinner with my good friend - that was wonderful!!

2. My daughter thought she was getting sick at college, but apparently it's not as bad as she thought it was going to be.  That's a relief.  Now let's just hope that my apparent cold turns out to be the same way.

3. I'm working on a choric speaking group with my juniors and it's going better and better every practice.  This morning a senior girl who is very good at speech evaluated it with me, and between the two of us we were able to work out a part that, until today, just hadn't been quite right.  It's much better now.

4. I spilled half a can of thawed frozen lemonade on the floor on Saturday night.  It's taken four moppings, but I think it's finally cleaned up!

5. I am truly thankful for the wonderful blessings and opportunities that God has given me.

Sounds like a blessed week!

I'm glad your daughter didn't get sick, and I hope your cold fizzles out, too!

Sounds like you had a great week....minus the cold...hope you're feeling much better soon! You mentioned you would love living up we are seeing 3 inches of snow and our 2 hour delay was just changed to school being closed all day!!! i'd rather go to work and NOT have the white stuff.

Glad you still had a good attitude after having to clean a sticky mess 4 times!

Glad your daughter's illness is not as bad as feared -- hope the same will prove true for you!

Glad the speech part worked out well.

I know that feeling of spilling something sweet and it seeming to take forever to get the stickiness off the floor.

I'm glad your daughter is staying well at college. It's almost spring break and then she can rest! I'm glad too that you can be thankful for having cleaned the kitchen floor--how many times?? (I'll remember that while I'm washing mine this weekend)

Sounds like you've had lots of celebration in the the week! So glad to hear your daughter did not get too sick.

Yikes, sticky lemonade on the floor. I've done the same. Makes you super appreciate a now clean floor again.

Maybe it's just because I'm also an English teacher, but your teaching always sounds fascinating to me!

My boy got sick at college this week and is driving home now. I have a full refrigerator, so I'm hoping his appetite is back to normal. Have a great week ahead.
