Friday's Fave Five

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story hosts Fridays Fave Five every week. After you read mine, go see what other people's faves are this week.

1. Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons! I really scored on saving money Thursday on some Christmas presents by using the coupons I've been saving up!

2. Safety in travel. We drove to Phoenix and back last weekend and we didn't crash. We were really busy while we were there, but we had a great time during the busyness being with Chaplain Dan and The Princess.

3. Christmas cards are starting to arrive! I love sending and receiving cards. We have a little stack on the piano we've opened and read. I haven't started addressing mine yet. Does anyone want to come over and help me?

4. I seriously appreciate Trader Joe's. Every Thursday this month our church's food pantry is giving away food to families in need of food because Trader Joe's DONATES food (not yet expired) and doesn't throw it away. What a great policy! I have always loved TJ's but after I started working with our food pantry and found out how civic minded the TJ's corporation is, I became a loyal patron. It sure helps that the store has good food and inexpensive prices!

5. Interesting weather! Because we live so close to the Pacific Ocean, we occasionally get unusual cloud formations. These clouds blew in on different levels in the sky in the morning and by the time Ellen and I met for our Friday morning walk, they had disappeared. And now today we have low clouds and cool breezes forecast for the weekend.

Yippee for coupons and T.J.'s and not crashing :0)
Yep those clouds were fabulous on Friday early...
Did you see that big full moon last night in the clouds??
Hey there's a choral concert at St. John's Seminary today at 2:00. It costs about $10.00 (Master Chorale and youth choirs) I might have to pop on over...

It's $15.00...

Wow, those clouds are amazing-- and you did a great job photographing them!

So, your baby girl went to her first college party! A week before she graduated, with husband in tow and not getting drunk.... does it even count?? ;oP

Really neat clouds, Willow! Thanks for sharing.

I would love to come over and help you with your cards.
It's absolutely cold out here.
I'm not thinking about the warm Pacific, but trying to keep Charles and Charlotte warm on their long journey tomorrow.

That's really cool about Trader Joe's.

I appreciate safe travels too after coming home from out of town in a blizzard last weekend. Glad you made it safe and sound.

Excellent Fives, Willow! You remind me that I need to get moving on the cards. I think I shop TJ's every week and I know they donate to my church's food pantry, too. Love your cloud photo :-)

I wish our area had a Trader Joes!

The cloud pic is gorgeous!
Merry Christmas to you
