Friday’s Fave Five #38

FFF daisies

It’s Friday, time to look back over the blessings of the week with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and other friends.

1. China calling Wednesday night I stepped into my office to turn off my computer. Just as I was ready to shut it down a skype call came through from my son in China. We had been playing skype tag since Mother’s Day when he tried to call. What a treat to be able to see his face and chat with him for a while!

2. New and improved My husband and brother-in-law fixed my herb planter that fell apart at the end of last summer. They changed the design to make it stronger. It looks great! They also worked on a second raised planter for my vegetables. How kind of them to use their skills for this project!

Hoping this year’s will look as good!


3. Fragrant herbs Yesterday my daughter took me to a greenhouse to buy some herbs. Last year I missed out on the peppermint because I waited too long to buy my herbs. So far I have peppermint, spearmint, basil, oregano, and chives.

4. Hello sunshine! Since the weird spring snow a couple of weeks ago we have had beautiful weather. This week we have summery warmth and lots of sunshine. Ahhh!

5. Beautiful papers My doctor has moved into a new office. After my appointment there yesterday I stopped by a nearby stationery and wedding invitation store that is closing its retail site. I found some beautiful papers and envelopes I can use for card making, and all at discount prices!

  1. Glad you and your son were able to catch each other on the computer at the same time!

    Nice of your husband and b-i-l to repair and refurbish your planter. Hope your crops do well this year!

    That paper sale sounds wonderful!


  2. When my son was in Indonesia, those skype calls were precious times! I’m gla d you connected with your son.
    I have some chocolate peppermint–love to make tea from those leaves–your herb and veggie gardens look great.


  3. I love stationary and would have been in my glory at that sale. Glad you found some you liked. Yay for skype. We dabbled in it a bit ago but it’s gone by the wayside. I might just have to revisit it with my daughter. What a sweet blessing those raised planter beds must be!
