Friday, a Quiet Day

I've had today and yesterday off work. It has been quiet since Drh is out of town. Time to think, take a nap, sew, eat on my own hours. I miss him, but a little time alone doesn't bother me either.

Today I looked back on the week for five favorites, and I'm grateful for:

1. Had a nice time and perfect weather for the family reunion on Sunday, as well as celebrating my in-laws 62nd wedding anniversary (see earlier post on celebrations.)
2. My sweet grandchildren, ages 2-yrs., and 3-months. Both are healthy, growing, happy, and the 2-yr.-old is a total hoot. Funny, smart and cute as a button. (I know, I know, so are your grandkids... :-))
3. Got some shopping done for myself and for birthday gifts, and had time to do it in a leisurely fashion. Dang, I forgot to get a father's day card for my f-i-l!
4. Ran both Tuesday and Thursday evenings. We're having continued good weather!
5. Stopped at the farmers' market Tuesday after work and bought fresh veggies, which I made into a delicious ragout and served with leftover corn casserole which I pretended was polenta. Today I went to get groceries and bought crab salad, which I had with a fresh tomato, broccoli and rosemary potato bread for supper. I hope those two yummy, healthy meals overcome the effects of the McDonald's hamburger and fries I had Wednesday!

and just have to add #6. Did some sewing and made my hubby some boxers for summer pjs. Aren't they cute?

As usual, visit Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for other Fave Fives on Friday!

Your meals looked interesting!

I too miss my hubby when he's gone, but then again, a little bit of time alone isn't necessarily a bad thing either, ya know?

It looks like we have quite a bit in common: love of our grandkids, quilting, from small towns in Illinois. I'll be back for another visit!

Aren't grandkids great? Mine are all smart, beautiful and cute as buttons, too. :)

Send some of your good weather up here! We've had cold and rain for a week.

Your trip to the farmers market was very productive! I love farmers market day. How lucky you are to have grandchildren and your parents and father in law still with you. I hope you all enjoyed the anniversary party.

Mmm the food you made sounds yummy!! And healthy! Farmer's Markets are great.

I don't have any grandchildren yet but every grandparent tells me there is nothing better!! I can hard;y wait.

Nice boxer pjs - wish I could sew but it isn't one of my talents unfortunately.

Glad you enjoyed your time alone - hope you have a happy weekend!

Wow! Sewing boxers? You're amazing. I'm glad your weather has been cooperative so you can run.
