September Week Two

Friday night already!  Again, I am a bit late with posting my Friday Fave Fives.  But that doesn't mean I am not thankful and blessed!  Just busy.  Here is Willow's Week in Five things that blessed me this week.

1.  A book that reaches deep.  For Such a Time by Kate Breslin.  Even though this story of a Czech transit camp during WWII is heart wrenching at times, it is so well written.  I love a good story.

2.  The Professor finally bought his birthday present--a bbq!  AND it was on sale, had a second discount, and included The Professor's military discount.  So, he really scored on it!  Now, to get it up and running.

3.  Time in the garden.  The weather has been cooler which means I can be in my happy place.  Am I the only person on the planet who doesn't mind weeding?

4.   The Professor knows I don't do well with dentists.  After my dentist fixed a tiny cavity in one of my teeth this week, my sweet husband made me relax the rest of the day.  I truly appreciate his care and concern for me.

5.  Labor Day was lovely.   We ended the holiday with family dinner in the back yard and a fire in the fire pit where we roasted marshmallows.  Yum!

Bonus.   More tomato sauce.  Two more batches are in the freezer-- one for Younger Daughter from her tomatoes and one for us.

The tomato sauce looks delicious! So glad your hubby pampered you after the dentist. I will have to check out that book if our library has it. Thanks for the reading recommend. Hope you have a good weekend. :-)

Sounds like a great present for your husband! And yay for all the discounts! I love the things my husband makes with our grill. I've not heard of that book, but it sounds compelling. You just might be one of the few people who doesn't mind weeding. :-) I don't like going to the dentist, either, even for just a cleaning. That was sweet of your husband to pamper you afterward. The backyard dinner sounds fun, and the tomato sauce looks delicious. (Your comment on my post came through while I was commenting on yours. Fun! :) )

Love the timing of that new bbq! And those tomato batches for future deliciousness... wonderful. I love making red sauce for future spaghetti dinners.

Glad you made it through your dental ordeal. And it sounds like you had a good dentist as well as great after-care :-)
