Hurray! After taking the summer off, Amy at Love Made My Home is back hosting her weekly link party, Five on Friday.
As has been my tradition in other weeks of Five On Friday, I have chosen five photos from my iphone which illustrate the week that has been.
Number One: It's the last week of summer holidays. We all head back to school this coming Tuesday. So we've been making the best of quiet afternoons at home and al fresco meals out on the deck in the glorious sunshine. Dearest hubby put this BBQ dinner together the other night - sausages, edamame and green pea salad and corn and potato salad. Delish - and healthy too!
Number Two: During the summer I took a lot of time to clean out closets, organize kid gear and thinned out wardrobes. I also spent a fair bit of time tidying up my crafts supplies. Ordering my embroidery floss by colour strangely brought great joy to my heart!! Do other people get excited about things like this??
Number Three: Hurray for Shaun the Sheep!! I've always loved this style of animation and didn't have to ask Camden twice to come and watch the movie with me. Absolutely adorable and done with next to no spoken word throughout the whole film. Cute as a button and technically spectacular.
Number Four: While in a nearby town for a dentist appointment, I made a stop at a lovely Portuguese-style bakery. It was filled with freshly baked bread, cupcakes, a plethora of cookies and, of course, custard tarts. I ordered up a frothy latte and tart and found a seat in the sunshine. I must say it was the yummiest latte I had consumed in ages and the tart - absolutely scrumptious. In fact, before I left, I bought a dozen more to take home and share with the family.
Number Five: My daughter and I found this sign while shopping in Hobby Lobby on a recent road trip to the US. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it! The sentiment was just perfect - kind of a goofy way to say, "I love you," with just a bit more style. It now hangs in our stairwell so that my family can be reminded of my thoughts every time they go up and down the stairs.
Thanks for popping in to see my Friday Five. I'm going to go check what wonderful things other people have posted on their blogs. We have a lot of catch-up to do after a summer off!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
