Friday’s Fave Five

Our first Friday in February. Time to think back over the last week and choose 5 favorites. Our hostess Susanne provides Mr. Linky for you to join in if you’d like. So head on over and join in on the fun.

1. Saturday morning walks with Dear are always on the top of my list. We had a low tide walk this last Saturday and saw lots of birds and collected several shells. We generally start these Saturday morning walks before the sun rises.


2. On Sunday after a great church service filled with worship we headed to Agoura to do some antique shopping. We found a nice Italian restaurant to have a snack before the stores opened at 11:00.  Hand Rolled Meatball SandwichTopped with Marinara Sauce and Mozzarella (we grind our own beef & pork) Mama’s Italian Kitchen in Agoura.

3. We decided to add a DVR to our Fios service at the condo. I never imagined how simple it is to record programs we want to watch later. No punching in start time or end time. I just click on the show and it takes care of recording it no matter how short or long it is. Then when we decide to watch the programs we get to skip all the commercials. That was a favorite this week.

4.  Eating in every night this week. We’ve had some good eats. Can you tell food is an important part of my life. :0)


5. Dear and I are still walking during the week and working out on the bowflex. Those work outs and walking with Willow most days  really makes me feel better. On Thursday we had some real good rain in Camarillo so Willow and I didn’t walk. Even though she grew up in Oregon she doesn’t walk in the rain :0)

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage unless I pay them a lot of money. I’m slowly cleaning up many posts from this time period and deleting their ugly grey and black boxes with a ransom request. Such a time consuming bother.

  1. Mexican, Mexican, Mexican…I want Mexican every day and yours looks SO GOOD! Pre-sunrise walks…what a beautiful way to start a day…although on Saturdays…could it be a little later? You guys are definitely not lazy people, but with such beauty maybe I could…nope, never would I get my husband out of bed that early on a Saturday. 🙂

  2. What a fun week you’ve had Ellen B.
    FIO’s huh? Around here we don’t even have cable…to dangerous for us! We would turn in to total couch potatoes, not a very pretty picture.

    That little Italian restaurant is decorated so cute!

    Have a fun day Ellen B.,
    Any funness planned for the weekend?

    🙂 Cori G.

  3. I always love coming here and seeing your pictures. It’s like a feast for the eyes. And your food pictures always make me just drool! LOL.

    I love PVR (Canadian version). I looooove fast forwarding over all those darn commercials.

  4. I didn’t know DVRs worked that way — I knew Tivo did. We’re probably going to be looking into one or the other some time soon. Sounds wonderful!

    How lovely to be close enough to the water to take walks there frequently!

    That meatball sandwich sounds scrumptious!

  5. A walk on the beach before sunrise? Perfect!

    I had to look up bowflex on google – are you and Dear going to post your before and after pictures like the ones on the adverts?? 🙂

    Have a great weekend Ellen!

  6. The sunrise on the beach is breathtaking! Good for the soul. Add that to all your delicious food, invigorating exercise and commercial free TV watching, and it amounts to a pretty fantastic week!

  7. OHHHHH, you had some great memories from this week! Those walks on the beach just make me swoon!! The closest I can get to that is the nearby Bass Pro shop (fishing/sporting shop) where they have a trail around their man-made lake—-not quite the same, huh? 🙂

    Your antiquing and eats also sound divine!!! dana

  8. It sounded like you had a PERFECT week — love the quesadilla. Any leftovers? I am coming over if there is…

    I am having to run — but will catch up with your blog later tonight!


  9. Oh my! I thought the beach was beautiful and then I saw #4. There isn’t much that can hold a candle to a close-up of Mexican food. Muchas gracias!

  10. ALL your pictures are lovely and inspiring! 🙂 Sounds good to me…eat a good meal and get out for a walk! 🙂
    I know I feel the same way when I get out for a good walk.
