I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. (L.M. Montgomery)
Thinking back on the week past and some of the special moments I'm thankful for, I'm linking up with Friday's Fave Five.
1. Drinking in the final days of this glorious month. Months ago, when Dan and I made plans for our trip to Wisconsin, I felt a slight twinge of regret that we would miss half of this beautiful month here in Colorado. However, being in the Midwest more than made up for it.
2. Celebrating Dan's birthday on Tuesday. It's so fun having the grandkids over for celebrations such as these. They make everything an event! They helped blow out the candles, and clapped their hands for the birthday song. Then, they helped Dan open his presents, which resulted in tissue paper all over the floor, and then an impromptu game of catch with wadded up tissue.
3. I had a dentist appointment yesterday to get a cavity filled. As I lay back in the chair, trying not to wig out from the shrill piercing sound of the drill, I thought about how I went to the same dentist from the time I was a child until my own kids were starting with Dr. B. He was the nicest, kindest man. I guess that's why I've never really gotten used to going to any other dentist. The young man (does that make me sound old?) that I see now is terrific, and I'm grateful for people who are dedicated to taking care of other's people teeth! It would not be something I would like to do.
4. We live in an area that is popular for hot air ballooning. This morning I noticed about six of them floating in along in the sky. I took this picture through the sunroof in my car, at a stoplight, of course. Seeing balloons always makes me smile.
5. Unexpected movie night. Last night, I was channel surfing, hoping to find something to keep me in my chair instead of getting up to do something, and I came across the movie The Perfect Storm, with George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg. I've always wanted to see it, so I spent the next two hours mostly enjoying it, but often with my hands over my face and peering between my fingers. Oh my gosh, it's a good movie, but edge-of-your seat through much of it!
How was your week?
