Ok. This has to be my BIG FIRST fave five this week. Blogger allowed me to upload this photo:
I decided to try adding a photo tonight figuring, "What do I have to lose? If I can't upload a photo, I'll click where directed to read up on my options." Imagine my shock when the photo simply and easily uploaded!
I love looking at this picture of the fishing boat which was cruising (do fishing boats cruise?) off the coast of Faria Beach State Park because it reminds me of all the wonderful sunny days I have spent at beaches around the world from Oregon and California to Florida to England to Indonesia. And if you know me, you know I love the beach.
Secondly, blogger allowed me to upload this:
This is the Plain Vest from Pickles website's list of free patterns which I mentioned in a FFF post two weeks ago. I chose to experiment with a second photo and added this vest because it makes me think excitedly about my plans for next week when I'll be spending a few days in that wonderful city of San Diego, visiting my daughter and son-in-law and attending the baby shower for their friends' new little girl who will be born soon and hopefully wear this little pink vest when she's about a year old. Isn't it just the cutest thing?
Because I'm not one for pushing my luck, I think I'll stop with the uploading photos. I have NO IDEA why these photos were allowed to be uploaded tonight. But I'm not complaining.
Now then. Third Fave Five. Last week, The Professor commented that he was surprised that I had not mentioned an important event from our week. I replied that I had hinted at it when I added the little phrase about selling a big item via Craig's List. Well. We bought a car and then sold our old one. Truly, it should be a fave because I do love my newer Honda CR-V, my little Silver Bullet. Better gas mileage. 21,000 miles. Higher visibility. And most important of all, our bike rack will fit on the back without sagging and scraping the pavement whenever we hit a low spot (once we get the hitch installed). Maybe, just maybe, this will be the last car I ever have to purchase. One can dream...
When I logged on to a clothing website yesterday to check sizing for a pair of slacks I wanted, I discovered to my great delight that the slacks are ON SALE for HALF PRICE right now! And free shipping! So I bought myself a pair of summer slacks.
Last, Spring Break! Two weeks off! That says it all.
That's my Fave Five for Willow's Week. Did you have any fun and exciting surprises? Do tell. If you want, you can link to Susanne's blog HERE.
