Friday Favorites

Every Friday, Susanne at Living To Tell the Story hosts Friday's Fave Five. It's an opportunity to look back at the week and find the blessings, large and small.  It's been a beautiful week.  Spring held its ground when winter tried to muscle its way back in for a day.  Just one wet, sloppy day, and the sun came out again.  It was hard to choose just five, but here are some of my favorites. . .

1.  It was so warm and sunny this morning, that I was served breakfast on the back porch.  English muffin with orange marmalade, a hard boiled egg, glass of orange juice and, of course, a nice, hot cup of coffee.  Oh, and I didn't even have to make it.  There are some advantages to being on crutches.

2.  Dan and I watched Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.  Such a good movie!  The young actor who plays Oskar is so amazingly talented.
3.  I received these beautiful flowers from my Aunt Riz.   Her blog is Gifts from the Sea and it is just lovely.  Go on over and say hi and tell her I sent you:) 

4.  Hot dogs, beer and baseball.  Right in our very own living room.  The Rockies won, first game of the season.

5.  On Wednesday, I met some girlfriends for dinner.  We met in junior high and manage to get together every couple of years.  Longtime friends, golden friendships.  

How was your week?

I didn't know you were on crutches! I missed last week and have been in and out of FFF -- I'll have to go back and read why. Hope you're getting better.

Your flowers are beautiful! Have a Happy Easter.

Great Friday Five, and Rizzi is the best. You are so lucky to have her as an Aunt. My Rays won yesterday with Carlos Pena showing the Yankee's a thing or two. Fun!
Happy Easter,

Breakfast on the porch sounds lovely especially when you are not the one cooking it! And beautiful flowers too. You are getting rightfully spoiled!

I've been wanting to see that movie. I'll have to see if the library has it.

Longtime friends made in childhood and kept in adulthood are a real blessing!

Wow, you still meet with junior high friends? That is awesome!

Breakfast on the porch sounds wonderful and even better when you don't have to make it.

The flowers are gorgeous; I'll have to check out your aunt's blog.

Sounds like a wonderful week.
