Family, food, and fun

It's Friday again, and that means the weekend is upon us! I just poured myself a nice, hot cuppa, and now, it's time for one of my most favorite weekly exercises

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

1. So, as I told you last week, this past Saturday we went to a birthday dinner for the two nieces, and I could NOT have had a better time! To start, I was given the privilege to help build a fort with the nephews, out of blankets, a couch and a treadmill machine - the niece and I were even allowed IN the fort, once it was completed, and I was regaled with "farting ghost" stories from all three kids! Later, after a wonderful dinner, we played hide & seek, and later still, watched Aladdin and Jasmine(??) on DVD. Those kids LOVE their Auntie Mo, and I couldn't love them more if they were my own!! Definitely a favorite this week!

2. We have plans for tomorrow nite to have dinner with some of our closest friends; one of our pals whom we don't see much of is in town for the weekend, so we're all gonna eat too much, laugh too hard and enjoy each others' company. I can't wait, really...

3. Oh, the Chicken Dijon recipe I tried last nite was DE-licious! Definitely one I will be adding to the standard repertoire. I luv it when a new recipe turns out well!

4. Liquid Nail adhesive; yeah, I know, weird fave, huh? But, you see, last week, when I was de-weeding my fruit trees and butterfly bushes, I accidentally knocked the ear off of my little garden piggy. I luv the little guy, and I sure didn't want to throw him away (it was a 'clean break', after all) so the mister brought me home this water-proof, fast bonding adhesive. It worked perfectly, and in fact, I think I will use it this week to repair a few other outdoor items, like my birdbath and my children-at-the-garden-gate statue, since the top of the gate broke off of that too!

5. And, finally, I'll add that I'm just finishing up Nora Roberts "Key of Light", and I'm enjoying more than I had anticipated, which *is* a fave, as this is the first book in a new-to-me trilogy (by an author that I rarely read), which means I have two more left to look forward to!

So, what about you? What were your favorite things this week? Be sure to head on over to Living to Tell the Story and share your highlights with Susanne and all the other wonderful participants! And, until next time...

May Everyday be filled with all of *YOUR* Favorite things!

Hi Mo!
You have some great highlights from this past week. Glad you could repair your yard art :0)
I love to eat with friends. Enjoy your time and have a great weekend.

Spending time with friends and family is just the best! Glad you have two opportunities to do that this week.

Also, finding a series you like is so great. Finishing book 1 knowing you have more to read is so satisfying - almost as good as eating chocolate!

Have a great weekend!

I would have loved to have a fun anutie like you when I was a kid! :v)

Time with friends, a recipe that turned out great, a good book, and being able to fix something you hate to get rid of? All wonderful things.

Karyn said...

Sounds like you are the best kind of Auntie! Good fun with kidlettes is a great way to start your list.

And the best way to end it? A really good book - which is only the beginning to a series of books.

My kind of list...

Hope your next week is as full of fun things.

Willow said...

Oh, yes, your week sounds wonderful! I think I need to send The Professor out for some of that adhesive. Enjoy your weekend and dinner!

Brenda said...

Very creative, using nail adhesive to fix your little piggy! Sounds like a good week!

Kari said...

Hi Mo,
Sounds like you had a great time at your nieces b'day dinner. You must be the coolest aunt.
And who would have known that Liquid Nail Adhesive could be used for repair.

Hope you're having a great weekend.
And thanks for stopping by my blog.
