This Week's Favorites

1.  It's been a pretty routine week, and that's the first thing I'm grateful for on my list for Friday Fave Five.  On one of my days off I accomplished quite a few chores that needed to be done. . . washed the car, weeded the garden, made a run to Costco.  It feels good to be caught up.

2.  I've had a project in my head for some time now and just can't get it out of the planning phase. This week, I found someone who is going to help me get it organized and going. I'm grateful for the teachers that show up in my life when I need them!

3.  I'm going to copy one of Susanne's favorites and list this post, because I think it should be shared as widely as possible.  It's  given me some "perspectacles" and I hope it does for you, too!  Give Me Gratitude or Give Me Debt.  Love it!

4.  Our Firstborn started classes today.  After taking a couple years off and working, he's decided to go back to his first love and do something in the medical field.  It's exciting to see my kids figure things out and get excited about their goals.

5.  We had a playful moment in water aerobics yesterday, when our class was 'buzzed' by a hot air balloon!  One of the gals jumped out of the pool to take this photo.  It's been such a hoot having class outdoors this summer.

How was your week?  If you'd like to share, link up with Susanne and the crew at Living to Tell the Story.

Love that teacher comment! And the "perspectacles" article is so good. I know exactly what you mean about seeing our kids go for their goals!

Have a great week ahead!

Love that post you linked to, it is really a great perspective to have. How fun to be buzzed by a hot air balloon, what a great way to start the day.
Sending you a hug,

I love getting caught up with things; not very easy for me since I always seem to be super busy but when I do get caught up it's peaceful. :)

Sounds like you had a good week! I love having a day off and getting things accomplished.

I've always wanted to do water aerobics. It's too far away where I live to be feasible. So, enjoy, for me.

You had a great week. I'm glad your 'teacher' came along side you to help and organize.
I love marking things off my lists too :)
I'm going to go read those posts...

Sounds like a great week, I need to start this meme sometime. Always enjoy reading yours :)

Cool picture of your outdoor venue with the hot air balloon! Looks like a great place for a class :)
