Friday's Fave Five, 11/14/14

 LINK to Friday's Fave Five host blog

1. A good week at school.  I am preparing to help with the play next week.  Any time I moan and groan about being gone a lot next week, helping with the play (my title is "backstage coordinator"), Mike reminds me, with very little sympathy, "You volunteered!!"  But it will be a good week.  And this week has gone well with preparation for it.

2. A great Veterans' Day assembly with a great speaker.  I already blogged about it here so will not say any more about it.

3. A new Christmas tablecloth, of which I have not yet taken a picture.  It came in the mail this week with a Christmas top ordered also.  I've lately become a bit of a sucker for mail order catalogs.

4. A good roast which we have been eating on all week.  So nice to have something I really like, that lasts most of the week for lunches and quick suppers.

5. Well, I lost a bet this morning.  So I have to take my good friend to Outback.  I told her she has to get the $9.99 special, but she says she's getting the most expensive thing on the menu.  Since she's already told the whole school that I lost a bet and am taking her to Outback, I might as well spread the news to the whole world as well.  Believe it or not, I am deeply thankful for my dear friend!!

Sometimes I moan and groan about things I have volunteered for, too, when the crunch is on, but I am usually glad for them when it is all over.

I love ordering from catalogs online - saves so much time driving from store to store.

I would love a good roast. We don't have them often since hubby hasn't been able to process beef very well the last few years...but I may see if he thinks he can handle it some time here soon. I just crave beef some times.

I just got back from Outback. Even if you did lose the bet the two of you will have a blast. That's what friends are for.

Our asst. principal said he hadn't received an email file from her, and she said she thought she had probably sent it. Knowing her, I said "I bet she hasn't!" And the bet was on. She had.

It sounds like you have a fun relationship with your friend!

I got myself a new tablecloth for Christmas a couple years ago only to find it way too big. Oh well.

Ann said...

Susanne - yes, we have a fun relationship - but also a very dear one. We have been there for each other, through thick and thin, for over twenty years. :-)

I love having friends like that! It's totally worth the most expensive item on the menu.
I hope your week 'volunteering' is going well!
