1. A great dentist and great oral surgeon. I knew I had an infection at the spot of a recent dental implant. After a quick visit with my dentist, he made a personal call to the surgeon and got me an immediate appointment with the surgeon. That's service! And the surgeon moved his schedule around to see me right away and arranged for me to come again in the next day to
3. Before all this happened, though, we enjoyed a first birthday party for a great nephew. It's fun to see how well our nieces and nephew are embracing parenthood and raising some adorable children.
4. Knitting is happening. For obvious reasons, I haven't photographed the eighteen (18!) hats I've made in the past two weeks. My Simply Soft yarn stash is basically wiped out! I have a few tiny bits of various colors which aren't enough to make even a small hat. So now I'm on to the next yarn--Red Heart Soft. It may go even a bit faster because the yarn is slightly heavier and I am using a larger needle size. Hopefully, I'll get some pictures to share in the next day or two.
5. This school year I have been tutoring one student in writing. Each week, I drove to Ventura and spent a delightful hour with a motivated and talented fourth grade boy. His brother had been in my classes, so I knew that I would enjoy tutoring this young man. And I did! This week was our last session and we both were a little bit sad about that. He gave me a lovely African bead necklace made from shredded paper. Perhaps you've seen those beads. According to his mom, he carefully chose which necklace I would prefer. Of course, it had turquoise in it! Photos coming, I hope! I have also gotten to know his mother a bit more, and we agree that we could just be friends forever.
And so now it is time for me to rest. I will do my best to visit the other lovely people who post their Friday Fave Fives. In the meantime, enjoy a lovely almost summer weekend!
