Fave Five for Friday ~ September 5th

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story is hosting Fave Five for Friday. Here’s what she says…

“Hope you play along. It’s very simple. Just list your favorite five things from the week. It can be anything from jokes to music to food. It’s a fun way to get to know more about each other and maybe make new friends, find new blogs or new things to try. Expand our world’s a bit. Make it as detailed as you like, but the more detail the more fun! Don’t forget to link to this site and sign the Mr. Linky so I can come and read your favorites.”

For my Fave Five this week, I’ll start with Sunday the last day of August and move forward.

1. Sunday we traveled 3-1/2 hours northeast of our condo to attend an Engagement party for my cousin’s son and his fiance. Lots of photos from the event are here.

2. Too tired to cook after all that fun Sunday on Monday (Labor Day) we tried an Italian Restaurant in Old Camarillo for the first time and had a nice experience.

3. Walking each morning for an hour with Willow from Willow’s Cottage and pushing ourselves up the hills and seeing these sights.


4. I shared a meditation I read by John Piper this week. You can read what I posted here. This was one of my favorite parts on running the race… “The finish line is crossed in the end, not by a burst of human energy, but by collapsing into the arms of God.”

5. My last favorite thing from this week was watching Piper Palin while her mother was giving her speech. Priceless moments. This little girl was meant for the stage! :0)  You can see a You tube of part of these fabulous moments here at Light Came. OH! You’ve got to click over to Bloggin daz and see Angie who is a amazing look-a-like of Sarah Palin.

For more Fave Five on Friday visit Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I posted on my blog from 2007-2015 hostage and replaced them with big black and grey boxes with threats. So discouraging…as I’m slowly trying to clean up thousands of posts!

  1. Wow, I can’t believe you have that book too! Isn’t that an amazing book? What amazes me even more is that you are able to find all these NEAT things at the Goodwill you frequent. I hardly ever find anything like that at mine… in fact, most of the time, I leave empty-handed. If we ever meet up in person, you HAVE to take me to your Goodwill! 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness, I cannot believe how much Angie looks like Mrs. Palin. They could be twins. Even though I’m Canadian we watched her speech and cracked right up at her little girl spit shining the baby’s head. Too funny!

    I love that quote in number 4. It will definitely go into my favorite quotes journal.

    I can’t believe how many weddings you guys have in your families. Your extended family must be huge! Great pics of all the fun. Thanks for sharing them and thanks for playing Ellen. I loved reading about your favorite parts of the week.

  3. Good morning Ellen B.,
    I’ve come to the conclusion that you lead an enchanted life. The Lord always brings amazing sights for you to record with your camera and share with us. Thank you!
    I only saw part of Sarah’s speech, but the part I did see I was in awe. I hate politics, but am looking forward to this years election. I wasn’t too excited about McCane until he chose Sarah as is running mate. God willing, we’ll end up with her as our Vice President!
    I hope the Lord sends you more blessings to share.
    🙂 Cori G.
    OOh! Hope I didn’t get too political!

  4. Great list and great pics! I enjoyed watching Sarah Palin this week, and Angie looks amazingly like her. She maybe could get hired as a diversion, huh?

    Have a GREAT weekend! It was nice to have you visit at my place!

  5. …and don’t you think a closer resemblance to palen is my aunt irene shevchenko? I KNOW! when she smiles, you can hardly tell then apart! 🙂
