Friday’s Fave Five


I am enjoying participating in Friday’s Fave 5, which requires me to stop and consider this week’s blessings.  Some of this week’s “faves'” are:

1. I have slept with the windows open the past few nights. I love awakening to the sounds of the birds! I’ve heard many different bird calls—I wish I could identify them by their calls! A couple of nights ago, I was awakened in the middle of the night by owls—hooting and screeching. I’m wondering if we have a nest in our yard.

2. Katie performed at her high school’s choral concert last night. She is not in choral class, but was required to perform as part of her musical theatre class. She played a violin/piano piece that she had composed herself. (She played the violin. The school accompanist played the piano part.) It was beautiful and I was a proud mom!

3. Emily and I have done schoolwork outside the past few days. The weather is perfect now and we are enjoying the out-of-doors before it gets too hot.

4. Allison, my oldest daughter, has finished her second year of med. school. Half-way there! Yay!

5. Cream cheese pound cake. Yum! I made some Wednesday to eat with some strawberries my in-laws brought over for us.


  1. I love sleeping with open windows, too! If there is a breeze, I'm in heaven!

    Cream cheese pound cake and strawberries sounds marvelous!

    This must be the season for concerts ... there's some in my neck of the woods too.

    Hurray for your daughter being halfway through med school!

  2. Don't you love those proud mom moments?

    Cream cheese pound cake? Sounds delicious! You'll have to share the recipe sometime!

    Happy weekend.

  3. Cream cheese pound cake sounds delicious! I love the sound of birds in the morning and of night sounds. I sleep with a window open as much as I can.

  4. Sleeping with the windows open. I love that too. Unfortunately we are a ways away from that yet.

    Cream cheese poundcake sounds yummy!

    Happy Mother's Day!

  5. Cream Cheese Pound Cake sounds DIVINE! I've never heard of that!

    Loved the flexibility that home schooling gave our family. Especially on bright breezy days!

  6. Is there anyone who doesn't LOVE sleeping with the windows open?? I love hearing the night sounds. Congrats to your girls. May and June are so much fun because of the graduations and accomplishments that go with the end of the school year.

    Happy Mother's Day!

  7. Home schooling requires energy. Way to go with your daughter playing violin and composing her own music...I love violin music.
    There is nothing better than sleeping with a duvet and windows wide open.
