Friday’s Fave Five #89

On Fridays I post FFF to intentionally recall blessings of the previous week. Suzanne sponsors this exercise at Living to Tell the Story and invites you to participate too! (Yes, I’m late again and posting on Saturday!)

1.Green beans I love green beans! My little raised-bed garden has produced a bumper crop of tasty green beans this month. Last night we enjoyed a delicious turkey dinner with garden-fresh green beans. Family and extended family joined us for an evening of food, fellowship, and games. Good memories!!

2.Kids Camping A co-worker of our son and his family flew in this week to go camping with some of my family in the Canadian Rockies. They had good weather and an enjoyable time of camping, hiking, and visiting special sites my children remember from their youth. Paul brought back some wonderful pictures so that even though I could not go with them, I was able to enjoy some of their experiences through photos.

3.Visits I’m still not getting out and about much since my surgery and hopefully will get the green light to move around more at my next check-up in mid-August. This week several young friends brought their little ones by for a visit with Purple Grandma, which was a blessing to me.

4.Improving mobility I am grateful that physio continues to go well and that I am feeling stronger overall. My mobility restrictions remain in place but I am getting better and more comfortable about moving from place to place in the house.

5.Peach tea I enjoy almost anything peach. Peach tea is a favorite beverage and I have collected peach green, peach rooibos, peach black, peach fruit, and peach herbal teas. I can’t drink black tea very often, but had some delicious peach black tea this week and really enjoyed it.

The last of my June beach vacation pictures are here.

  1. I LOVE the picture of the surf at Holden Beach!!

    I’ve wondered how you are doing with moving around and getting better. My husband faces shoulder surgery this week – a different sort of lack of mobility, but also an extended time of recuperation. It will be interesting to say the least!!

  2. How wonderful that your family took photos of their camping trip so that you could enjoy it as well albeit vicariously.

    If ever I get a garden again (apartment dweller here), I think raised beds are the way to go! Especially as I get older, the harder it is to get down on the ground and up without a forklift! Hurray for a bumper crop of green beans. YUMMM.

    I’ve never had peach tea. I do love peaches so I’ll look into getting some. I try not to drink too much black tea either.

    So glad to here that your mobility is improving. I hope this week sees even more improvement.
