Friday’s Fave Five


It’s Friday and time for Friday’s Fave Five. Look back over this last week and choose 5 favorites in your week to share. Susanne at Living to Tell the Story is our hostess for this event and has Mr. Linky ready for you to join in.

Here are my five or so since last Friday.

1. On Saturday we had a family potluck to celebrate my parents 66th wedding anniversary. We took the time to share things we remembered about my mom and pop growing up. It was a good time of affirming mom and pop remembering their acts of love for each other and for us.

2. On Sunday Dear and I spent a few hours at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. It was a good time.

3. On Sunday night Dear and I began a 13 week course at our church called The Truth Project. Judging from the material and caliber of teaching from the first night we are really in for some growth and learning with this material.

4. I finished a project this week that gave me a lot of relief. My high school scrapbook was falling apart and I bought a new book to re-do the whole thing. It was good to get the project finished.

5. On September 17th we were blessed with the arrival of our latest family member. My niece Michelle gave birth to our little grand niece, Avery! We are so excited for Ryan, Michelle and Jackson on their new little family member. Congrats to the grandparents, too!

I’m adding a #6 not so important but fun for me…I’m enjoying watching some of my favorite reality t.v. shows. Top Chef, Project Runway, Biggest Loser, and now Survivor! Russell is so evil. I hope they figure that out soon.

I’m off to our first Women’s Bible Study session this a.m. bright and early because I’m a table leader. I’ll catch up with y’all later today. Have a great Friday!!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Wow Ellen, 66 years together? What an inspiration… and what a heritage for your whole family♥

    The Truth Project looks very interesting… I’m gonna have to google it;)

  2. WOW! A 66th anniversary! AND a birth in the family! All in one week… how wonderful! That Truth Project looks waaaay cool… and maybe a bit scary! I hope you’ll share more about it as it goes…

  3. I have to comment on Survivor…I can’t believe that Russell character. He brings drama but I do not want to watch him the whole season, heres to hoping he leaves early on. And ‘Yeah’ for Avery’s healthy birth!

  4. What a wonderful legacy you have with your parents’ 66 yr marriage.

    Congratulations to them! And hurray for a new baby! Welcome Avery!

    Have a good weekend and here’s to walking on Monday morning!

  5. What an accomplishment – 66 years together! Please express my congratulations to them.

    It’s always fun to have a new baby in the family!

    I have so many scrapbook ideas, I wish I could get at least one of them done! Good for you in finishing your project!

  6. Congratulations to your parents! What a great legacy for you and your children.

    New babies are always a blessing, aren’t they? Enjoy her!

    I do not have a TV signal anymore, but I do miss Survivor. (The only thing I miss about no TV)

  7. Congratulations to your neice and family. A new baby is always such a special gift.

    What a neat thing to do for your mom and dad. 66 years is amazing.

    Our church did the truth project last spring. I was not able to attend but I heard it was awesome. I’m definitely taking it the next round.

  8. It sounds like a fun week and congratulations to Michelle and family…how exciting!!!
    Hey Ellen B., I just read on Sara’s blog that you’re headed for Washington on Friday… Oh, I just got so excited thinking we might be on the same plane and then realized hubby and I aren’t going until the 2nd of October. My brain blips are becoming more frequent ;-O.

    I hope you had a great study!

    xoxo Cori G.

  9. There’s always something to keep you celebrating and busy, if it’s not sports, it’s celebrations, or completing projects, or leading studies. Good on you…Sounds like your study is going deeper. We all need that.

  10. Hello again Ellen B.,

    Hubby and I are going to be there from the 2nd through the the 7th. We’ll be staying in Anacortes the first night then Victoria for 3, then back to Seattle. Hubby wants to see the Boeing museum while there and I want to see the underground tour. Other then that I think we’re just going to wander. Do you have any fun suggestions?

    xoxo Cori G.

  11. Great Five Ellen.
    Congratulations on your parents Anniversary – that is beautiful!.

    And I agree Russell is totally evil. I wish he was voted off. But I’m looking forward to next week’s survivor.

  12. We did the Truth Project in our small group last year. It took us 9 months to get through it, we meet twice a month. It is like taking a college class again.

    How wonderful to have a new grand niece.
