Welcome everyone to Friday's Fave Five. It's been a bit of a panic to get this post up as for some reason the Blogger site would not load onto my computer for a really long time. But now it seems to working so I'm trying to get it done before anything else can happen. Thanks for joining in with me on this weekly exercise of stretching our thankful muscles by looking for the good things in our lives from the week.
1. Snacks. I'm always happy when I find fairly healthy fun foods to snack on that don't taste like cardboard. My daughter introduced me to these sweet potato crackers she found at Costco and I have to say I'm hooked ... they are delicious. She also introduced me to this fresh salsa found in the cooler section that I've gotten really hooked on. Pair the two together and voila! Susanne's new favorite snack food! And I am going to try those beet crackers next! Keeping my fingers crossed that they are good too.
2. Surprise lunch. Yesterday my Sweetie surprised me with lunch from a favorite Thai Fusion place with a bento box lunch. There is so much food in one of these things that it fed me lunch and supper out of it. It was a sweet surprise from him and made my day.
3. Father's Day crafting with the dayhome kids. They get so excited to make something for their parent and giving it to them. Sometimes though, Father's Day crafts are a bit stressful as they are usually not so easy as Mother's Day but this year I found a couple that the various ages involved in a dayhome could all do. Thanks again, Pinterest!
4. Book Find. One of my favorite books, The Mountain Between Us (by Charles Martin) , is being turned into a movie and coming to theatres in the fall. I am so excited and can hardly wait for it. I was telling my oldest, who is a reader, about it. She knows it's one of my favorite authors and she was surprised at the the big name stars heading it up. Not even an hour after our conversation I found the book at the Value Village second hand store. I couldn't believe it. I have never ever seen this author's books in any used book store that I have looked in. And it was hard cover to boot! Score! She's excited she'll now have it to read this summer.
And just in case you're interested, here's the trailer:
