Friday’s Fave Five ~ Where’s My Brain?

When I woke up today and wondered what day of the week it was it dawned on me that I forgot all about Friday’s Fave Five. Scramble, scramble here we go. Thank you Susanne for helping me keep my days straight! Visit Living to Tell the Story for more favorites or to join in.

 

1. On Sunday I was still in Southern California and Dear and I met his brother and wife for a birthday brunch at the Tam O Shanter in L.A. We don’t get together very often with T and C and it was fun to catch up a bit and enjoy a good meal together. Turning 60 is a very good excuse for a nice meal.

2. On Monday Willow and I were able to get a early morning walk in and it was hot, hot, hot already. It was good to catch up since we hadn’t walked for a couple weeks. What a surprise to see the  Jacarandas still blooming.

3. Monday evening I flew to Seattle in a smaller plane where the seats were closer together and smaller then usual (is that’s possible?) but I had a window seat and got some fun shots of Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier. I arrived in Seattle to warm temps, too.

4. Tuesday evening I joined my kids and a friend at the U.S. Open Cup game at a small venue to see the Sounders beat Houston 2-1 in overtime. It was an exciting game and fun to be right on the field. Again it was very hot.

5. Making blueberry muffins with blueberries from my bush was another fun treat this week.

My daughter’s sunburn is finally in a tolerable stage and it’s good to see her feeling so much better. Wednesday was a very hard day around here. Friday is really looking up!!

Blessings and I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ve been up to.

Friday’s Fave Five ~

Time to look over your last week and recall your favorites!  Click on over to Susanne’s blog Living to Tell the Story to join in or see others favorites.

My favorites were very easy this week and revolved around our son Josh flying in for a quick overnight visit!

 

We picked Josh up at the Long Beach airport Saturday morning and drove across town to L.A. (right next door to Glendale) to have lunch at Tam O’ Shanter. Wonderful prime rib and wonderful old fashioned service!

 

From the Tam O’ Shanter we headed to the Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles to see the great preservation efforts of some wonderful homes and for a classic car show.

 

So here’s the real reason our son flew down to L.A… For the Seattle Sounders Soccer game against the 1st place L.A. team, Chivas! We were just killing time at the restaurant and Heritage Square until game time :0)  There were 9 of us from my family at the game and a very boisterous Southern California Sounders fan base that we sat next to! We lost 1-0 but we still had a wonderful time.

 

Here’s our son Josh making friends with our opponents! Josh is such a great peacemaker!!

 

On Sunday before we took Josh to the airport we had a family lunch at my sisters house. Fun times with Baba and Deda and cousins and aunts and uncles on my side of the family and Dear’s side of the family, too. The time flew by and we dropped Josh off at the airport and then tried to recover from all the fun!

 

My last favorite from this last week was discovering the historic area of Oxnard. I love old wonderful architecture and wide tree lined streets filled with fabulous homes!!

I look forward to seeing your favorites from this past week. Thank you Susanne for being our hostess for this great weekly event!
