It's time for Friday Fave Five, that day of the week to look back at the past week and find five things to be grateful for. Thank you to Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for hosting this weekly exercise.
Rest ~ A stern text from my boss and a gentle scolding from my physician have led me to take some time off and allow others to take care of things. It feels good to give my body the time and care it needs to heal.
An old favorite ~ My mind has still been a bit foggy, so reading has been limited to magazines mostly. My aunt brought me a stack of my favorites, such a treat! I've also picked up one of my favorite books from childhood -- The Secret Garden -- and I'm enjoying it all over again. It's fitting to be reading the story in the Spring, when my own gardens are beginning to awaken.
SPRING! is springing up! ~ Yesterday, I went outside and took some photos of what's happening in the gardens!
Neighbors ~ The nicer weather has everybody outside again. It's nice catching up with neighbors I haven't seen much over the winter, comparing notes on gardens, family and other news.
Coffee ~ I still have to be careful with caffeine, but I've been able to have small cups of coffee in the morning and it tastes heavenly! Decaf just doesn't cut it for me. I foolishly toyed with the idea of using this opportunity to give up coffee, but. . . what was I thinking?? Love my coffee in the morning!
How was your week?
Happy Friday everyone!
