Fave Five for Friday

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story is hosting Fave Five for Friday. Here’s what she says…
“Hope you play along. It’s very simple. Just list your favorite five things from the week. It can be anything from jokes to music to food. It’s a fun way to get to know more about each other and maybe make new friends, find new blogs or new things to try. Expand our world’s a bit. Make it as detailed as you like, but the more detail the more fun! Don’t forget to link to this site and sign the Mr. Linky so I can come and read your favorites.”

My Fave Five for this week:

1.The New Boy sleeping in his stroller with Edward Bunny snuggled up under his chin. The New Boy doesn't sleep much so having him nap in the afternoon is a blessing.

2. I finished sewing the wool bag. I love the turquoise cotton lining!

3. Ellen and I walked every morning this week. We started out each day when the fog was still clinging to the trees and covering the mountains, but by the time we were close to the top of the hills in my neighborhood, the sun had come out and burned most of the fog away and we saw blue sky overhead.

4. My daughter in law sent this photo of Chaplain Dan to me. I don't know when it was taken (although I know where) but I love it!

5. I am planning a trip next week to Portland to attend the Knit and Crochet Show. During the weekend, my brother called to invite me to come early, since I am not starting back to work for another week, and stay with him and Flower. Their invitation made my week!

OH your new boy sleeping is so darling. I went shopping with the lil' farm hand and his mamma today and that little fella just stayed awake. . too much to see. It seemed so funny to be thinking of your new boy in the shops. . looking for a little Canadian memento. . and then I made my lil' farmhand try it on for size. . .
It's a funny world this bloggy land.
All your pictures are wonderful and I'm so glad you and Ellen have had so much walking time together.
Portland. . .keep coming your nearly here. . smile.

What a cute little guy!
I'd be so afraid to get on a camel - that's a great picture.
Have fun at the show.

Hi Willow, what a beautiful bag! Years ago I made a boring grey wool flannel suit but then lined it in just that shade of gorgeous turquoise. It really lifted it and made me feel summery.

Bag looks good. Great photo of Dan.
Interesting to see all the doors.
Have a great trip to Portland. Oh and I nearly forgot to mention the little lad. He is growing.

Hey, Willow, I love your fave Five.
I accomplished so much this week, that I feel like I can award myself.
Maybe I can make another post?
It does feel good to get those projects done eh?
I have to sew 25 school bags. They are all cut and ready to go.
Enjoy your trip the slow way. That's too funny.
Keep walking.That is so amazing.

Awww... I miss kakak... got to talk to him for almost an hour last week which made me week too! :o)

Give everyone up there my love, and Flower and Uncle!

What a cool picture of the Chaplain! I've been on a camel before and they are the smelliest animals ever!

I loved the knitted bunny. I knit too, but have never made any animals yet.

BTW, I found you by way of Living to Tell.

I love the photo of Dan on the camel!!! That is a keeper for sure!

Bethany said...

And your grandson... that is a beautiful photo. I also LOVE your new bag... LOVE that blue color!!! Reminds me of the water in Greece (as if I even know what that looks like, but it does!)
