Friday's Fave 5

The idea behind Friday's Fave Five is to look back over your week and reflect on the good stuff that has happened. It's sponsored by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.
1. Dan had a business trip to Seattle, and while he was there he met Joe for dinner and they visited a couple times. It gave me a good feeling to know that they had some father-son time. Joe has long ago proven that he can take care of himself. But, it isn't about that as much as knowing how few and far between our times are with him. I enjoyed it for both of them.
2. I can think of five favorite things about this week that happened just today. This morning I got to spend time with my 4-year-old nephew, Tommy. He is the family's pride and joy. I'd forgotten how sweet-smelling a freshly bathed little boy can be. How tender and vulnerable the back of a little boy's neck looks, when he's wrapped in a fluffy bath towel. I learned everything I never knew about Spider Man as I sipped my coffee and he ate his waffles, syrup dripping down his chin.
3. Winter pansies. I bought a bunch, cleaned out a rather neglected spot in the front garden, and they are all tucked in, pretty as can be.
4. Pumpkin lattes. There was enough chill in the air this morning to toast the season with Starbuck's fall special.
5. Hanging out at the playground. I can't recall the last time I hung out at a playground with my dad. But, this morning, we ended up there with Tommy, and Matt and Lois. Tommy played, we all talked politics and life is good.
That's my week! If you'd like to play along, pop over to Susanne's and follow the rules:P

Sounds like a great week. I love it when my guys spend time together too apart from me...

What a wonderful list. I have really got to get to Starbuck's to try one of them pumpkin lattes. Several people I've come across lately have mentioned them. Thanks for playing. It was a great list of favorites.

You had a very lovely week. You know, even if we think our week has not been particularly good, if we stop and think about it, we can always come up with ways we've been blessed. I like the concept of listing the fave fives, so I joined up, too! :-)

You now have me craving a pumpkin latte. Our Starbucks closed down last month, though. Wah!
