Friday Fave Fives, January Style #4

What a week!  It was a week spent inside a Superior Court courtroom and jury deliberation room.  Yes, I spent four days this week (as well as two days last week) on jury duty.  I'm done now with my civic duty for a year.

What are my Friday Fave Five take-aways that I am thankful for this week?

1.  I'm thankful that I live in a country where people can serve on juries and there is law and order, and (for the most part) that law and order are upheld.

2.  I'm thankful for a sweet and wonderful nephew who although he is a busy lawyer took two lunch times to pop over and have lunch with me.

3.  I'm thankful that traffic wasn't bad.  Highway 101 traffic can be terrible, but I didn't really have any difficulty arriving on time or being delayed on the way home.  Even in the rainstorms, the traffic only slowed a little.

4.  Rainstorms!  Yes, once again rain is in my fave five list!  The storm on Monday was impressive.  I vote for a couple more of those in February!

5.  A chamber orchestra concert on the weekend.  The very talented director of chorale and orchestra at the university presented a concert featuring five teenage performers for our county at the concert.  It was amazing, and The Professor and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

No photos this week.  Who wants to see the inside of a courtroom?

In CA you have to do jury duty every year?? Here in NY, we get 7 years before we can be summoned again. I had to appear in town court (evening) about 5 years ago and the judge was so disgusted that the lawyers were late that he told all of us jurors that he would make sure we were not summoned for ANYTHING for 8 years. HAHA.....he was one angry judge!

Glad you all are getting the rain you need.

I hope you have a relaxing weekend!

It is wonderful to have extended family close to connect with. I'm wth youngest daughter this weekend at their family lake house ... Everything is beautifully covered with snow, and the sun is shining. Such gracious gifts you and I receive from our Father! (You the rain and a wonderful nephew, me the snow, etc.) Mary

I am thankful for the rule of law here as well. Glad your jury duty worked out well with no major traffic problems. It's so good you all are getting so much rain! The concert sounds like a wonderful event.

Glad traffic wasn't too bad for your jury duty and that it is now behind you.
That rain was really something and I'm glad your land is nicely soaked. Hope your weekend is going well.

A wonderful way to wrap up the week of jury duty getting out and destressing and doing something enjoyable. And yay for more rain for you.

Me, too! I want to vote for weekly rainstorms!

Glad you have completed your service with nephew lunches to boot.

Hi, Willow! Wow... you have to serve jury duty every year?! Glad that's behind your for a while, then. ;) And there is lots to be thankful for--always! I'm slow to visit... we've welcomed a new kitty-cat into our home--our little Luna--and the days are full of her just now! :))) Happy Days, my friend ((HUGS))
