Friday's Fave Five 6-1-18

LINK to Friday's Fave Five host blog

I'm so glad to be able to post on Friday's Fave Five again after such a long absence due to log-in issues.

1. This was actually finished a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't get a picture of it until yesterday.  I made it using a crochet stitch that a dear friend, now in heaven, taught me how to use some thirty years ago.  I love the variety of the variegated yarn. 

2. New sheets.  You can see the pillowcases in the picture above.  They're Cannon brand - I got them on eBay for considerably less $$ than lesser thread count Cannon sheets in a store.  I am a sucker for new sheets and new kitchen towels.

3. Closets cleaned out (at least the major ones) and a lot of stuff ready to go to the thrift store.  I was going to have a yard sale but decided against it.  Too much work.  :-)

4. Wendy's fifty-cent Frosties.  We enjoyed another one last night. Sure hope this special doesn't last too long - this could become an addiction.

5. It's been a week out of school, and I still have that feeling of relief several times each day.  I love what I do - but the end of the year, especially this year, is still very welcomed.  I'm sleeping more each night and napping each day.  Getting rested up!!

Glad you're getting some rest in after the school year and everything else you had going on this year. It does feel good getting closets cleaned out and getting excess out of the house. I am not a fan of having yard sales - days and days of sorting, pricing, setting up, sitting out in the heat all morning, and then having to itemize the stuff and take it to the thrift store anyway. The only successful ones we've had were when the seniors at our school in Sp. sponsored them as a fundraiser: they charged $10 a table, and since a number of people participated, it attracted more of a crowd, plus you only had to have enough for a table. The seniors set up and then took down the tables. The spring before we moved we got rid of a lot of things that way. But most of the time now our unwanted stuff goes straight to the thrift store.

I like new sheets when I can find a kind I like. We bought some at W-Mart that felt awful, so I am cautious about buying sheets now. Glad you found some good ones at a good price!

Oh i love new sheets!! I get my from target and they are very reasonable. Homegoods has good ones too!!

Yay for being done with the teaching year, here in the Northeast we go until June 22. But i teach specialneeds preK so will go back July 9 for 6 weeks of summer school then another break until after Labor Day. Looking forward to getting up at 5:30 and biking!!!! Instead of getting ready for work. Hahha

Enjoy the weekend!!

New sheets and towels are always a blessing. I passed on the garage sale too for the very same reason. We also have a project in town twice a year called "FreeCycle" where on a certain weekend you can put used items marked free on your curb and people can drive around and pick up what they want. Enjoy your summer off.
