Friday’s Fave Five #76

fff-delicate-leaves

It’s Friday, time to look back over the blessings of the week with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and other friends. And yes, I realize I am once again posting this on Saturday. 🙂

Break in the weather After a couple of very cold weeks, we’ve enjoyed a week of unseasonably warm weather. A lovely break for Albertans in January!

Christmas banquet in January Our church’s Christmas banquet was held last Saturday. (Yes, we know it’s after Christmas, but people are not as busy in mid-January as they generally are in December.) Several ladies in our church did the catering this time and the result was fantastic! It was the best catered meal we’ve ever had at the church.

Word with Friends all time high score for one word – crimples – which crossed both a triple and a double word tile with the ‘m’ on a triple letter tile. I was trying to clear my letter tray and rearranged the letters until I saw the word. I tried to play it, unsure if it was even a word, but it is!! It means to crimp, curl, or wave, but can also mean to wrinkle or crumple. The score for that one word? 191 points. That will likely stand as my high score forever!

 Finishing a big project I have the majority of the work done on a research and writing project I have had on my ‘to do’ list on for several months. It needs only final editing to be complete. Yay!

Answer to prayer A friend had brain surgery last July to remove a tumor behind her ear. She has recovered well, but had the ongoing side effect of double vision. Many have been praying that God would resolve that problem and this week he did just that!

I haven’t done much with photography or cards the past few weeks. Here are a few fun pictures with friends and family from our trip to Shanghai last month.

  1. Lovely photos. Sometimes it’s nice to have a get together to look forward to after Christmas. January can be a difficult month especially if you live somewhere that winters are severe. Thanks for stopping by. As for your question about custard – I tend to have cans or cartons of custard in my store cupboard – I don’t use it that often. Or for a special occasion I might get a tub of fresh custard from the supermarket. I don’t keep Birds because I use it so rarely it and funnily enough my friends and I were discussing this at the lunch and one of them was complaining that the formula seems to have changed because her custard always turns out lumpy when she uses Birds lol

  2. I love the idea of moving some Christmas celebrations to January when it’s not as busy and they can be enjoyed more. We’ve enjoyed some more moderate temperatures this week, as well, but I am sure they are even more appreciated where you are! Congrats on your excellent Words With Friends word! I love when I am not sure of a word, but try it, and it works. Fun pictures of the family, and that leaf photo is gorgeous.
