A new week means new blessings, new Fave Fives for Friday.
1. A new bed
After way too many years, we finally decided enough was enough. We bought a new mattress.
2. A new computer
The advantage to being married to a computer science professor is that you always get the best computer, exactly what you want and need, for the best price. My poor old computer was well past due for an upgrade.
3. A new restaurant
Mary's Secret Garden
We sat on the sidewalk patio and enjoyed the sunshine and lemon water while we waited for our meal.
Actually, we ate pad thai, but we were so hungry that I didn't take a photo in time.
4. New books
Well, not new-new. But new to me. After lunch, we stopped by two used bookstores and I found two more Newbery Award books.
Carry On, Mr. Bowditch by Jean Lee Latham (1956)
The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley (1986)
Half the fun of owning the Newbery Award winner books is the thrill of the hunt in the used bookstores. The other half is, of course, actually reading the books, which I will do this summer.
