Sandwiches, Siblings and SUNshine

Geez...I let another entire week go by, posting nary a thing except my viburnum blooms on Monday! BUT....I made it here in time for Susanne's

a place to come on Friday's and think back over your week and just post about 5 favorite things from your week. It can be anything that tickled your fancy over the week. Favorite quotes, posts, happenings, scriptures, recipes, pictures, etc., etc

So, my list this week begins with 1. Veterinarians; ALL of them in general, but *my* DVM, Dr. Langford, more specifically. See, we had to take Murphy in to see him on Wednesday, because she was experiencing what I had thought was a cold, or worse - some sort of pulmonary infection. But, after an extensive visit, which also included her updated vaccines, we found that Ms.Murphy has air-borne allergies. Now, you may be wondering why my doggie having allergies would be one of my FAVORITE things, but that is because I was worried half-crazy that it was something more serious. *This* we can handle; *This* we can eliminate; *This* makes my #1 favorite thing this week!!

2. Nick the Greek's restaurant & the best gyros EVER!! So, on the way home from the doggy-docs, we stopped to grab a quick bite for dinner at this new little restaurant. Come to find out, that Nick was the cook at one of our favorite Sunday-breakfast diners, and he and his lady friend left there to open their own place. And Oh! My! GOSH!! am I glad they did; we had two of their gyros (packed high with the *best* spicy lamb I have ever eaten, loads of fresh veggies and the. best. pita bread.) Just YUMMY...and the *best* part?! They are, literally, just around the corner from my house!

3. Cheesecake; Nick's has a pretty good home-made cheesecake too.

4. My SIL, T; Taking EXCELLENT care of four wonderful kiddos, she makes sure they ALL have their piece of her attentions, she keeps a clean, safe home for them and my lil' BIL; She's sweet, caring, smart, beautiful and funny (and, no, I don't owe her ANY money!! LoL). I luv her to bits and I'm thrilled that we are both friends AND sisters!

And, finally, 5. 70 degree temps outside my cottage, with nothing but mid-eighties in the foreseeable forecast! SPRING is HERE, baby!!!

Be sure and head on over to Living to Tell the Tale, and check out all the fabulous fave fives this week; Join in and tell us about *your* weekly favorites. Until next time...

~ Have a Wonderful Weekend & May ALL your days be filled with your Favorite Things!! ~

I agree with proudgrits, you've made me hungry with that description of Nick's gyros. I absolutely adore the picture posted. I'm so glad spring is on the way!

I haven't had a gyro in ages. Yummy. And to the cheesecake too!

I totally get what you mean about #1. With pets it's hard to tell what's wrong with them and it's so easy to be worried. So glad that your dog will be alright!
