Five on Friday!!!

Good morning friends, and a very Happy Friday!!!

I decided to do something a little different today and join in with Amy over at Love made my home, with her Five on Friday.

It's my first time joining in and I'm not quite sure how it really works, but, I'll get right on with it and share 5 things that made me smiles this past week.

If you want to join in, please go and say hi to Amy, grab her button, write your post up and then go back and link with her and all the other Five on Friday participants. :)

1.  My grandmother has been so poorly the past two weeks, but she's making wonderful progress and is getting back to her old usual self.  We've learned so much the past few days, mostly about the Lord's power to perform miracles.  This wonderful lady was at death's door, we said our goodbyes, and then a day later she woke up and was back to normal.  Unbelievable!!!!

2.  The most beautiful of Fall weather has crept up on us here in North Texas.  I've smiled just watching the season take hold, the leaves changing, the beautiful sunrises and the seasonal flowers bloom.



3.  Food, food and more comfort food.  I love cooking and I love baking and I truly believe that one of the best ways to take care of my family and to show them how much I love them, is through the meals I serve them. 

Beef and Chicken baked with Yogurt

4.  Catching up on some favorite TV shows and finding new ones.  I've watched quite a few this past week, here are a few that I'm really enjoying.

5. Corners of my house.  Those little nooks and crannies that bring a smile to my face every single day.  It's those little spaces that I've added a special little touch, or just something to make it feel homey and cozy.  I like nothing more than pottering around my house and when I walk by an area and see a simple touch of homeliness, it makes the monotonous chores not so bad.

Crochet and flowers, need I say more?

Thank you for stopping by, I'll be sure to come by and visit you all later today :)

Hi Sandra! This is my first Five on Friday, too! Your PE chicken looks good! It makes me want a little Panda today, but I'm meeting a friend for lunch at a noisy lunch/bar restaurant instead. The company will be excellent.
I like the little corners of your home. Cozy!

Hmm...the Secrets of the Royal Bedchamber looks like something I would enjoy.

Happy Friday! :)

Welcome to Amy's Five on Friday. I started joining a couple of months ago and the people who link up are so friendly. =) I love your pictures of the corners of your home. Such peaceful corners to look at! So glad that you will be able to spend more time with your grandma. Time with loved ones is so precious. I hope you have a lovely weekend. Aloha.

Hello, I'm Pat from southern California. It's so nice to meet you via Five on Friday. You posted such nice things for today. The best is that your Grandmother is doing well. I loved reading about the TV shows you are watching; I've started watching some new series on PBS but nothing comes close to my love on Downtown Abbey. I hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

What a lovely five - I hope you have enjoyed joining in. What good news about your grandmother. I remember watching Secrets of the Royal Bedchamber - I usually enjoy anything that Lucy Worsley does for television:)

Welcome to Five on Friday! Your home looks beautiful. That is wonderful news about your grandma. Spice lattes sum up the season for me. Have a great weekend xx

Amy at love made my home said...

I am so glad that your grandmother continues to improve each day! That really is the very best! Five great things all round, autumn in Texas is a good thing isn't it, a great time of the year, much nicer I found than summer, but I am not one for great heat! Thank you for joining Five On Friday - you did great! I hope that you have a great weekend! xx
