Friday Favorites


Well it has actually be a fairly uneventful week for me. It is so nice to have those sometimes. I included a picture above that my sister took recently. I think that it is so beautiful and peaceful and oh how I dream of that kind of peace and quiet sometimes. I am actually considering printing it and hanging it at my house...of course she would just love that.
Reading: I am still working on some of the same books, but I finished Savor the Moment by Nora Roberts. It was so good and I can't wait for the fourth and final book in the series to come out. I think that if I didn't have so many books going at once I would actually get some accomplished. Oh well...
  • Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert - still trudging along...it's going to take a lot of restraint for me not to go and see that this weekend.
  • Duchess in Love by Eloisa James
  • Ten Things I Love About You by Julia Quinn - my all time favorite author
  • Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbala - I totally forgot to mention this one last week. I hope to finish this up this up today. Very powerful book!

Cooking: I made a super yummy pasta dish earlier this week that you can see the post of below. I also made homemade chicken pot pie which is always a big hit. I am looking forward to our monthly installment of the MSC Cupcake Club this weekend. I believe that the pick from the group is Triple Citrus Cupcakes or something like that. Sounds delish...

Favorite Thing: Okay this sounds completely stupid, but my one of my favorite things this week has been the sleep that I have been able to catch up on at night. I have taken advantage of some additional sleep time and it has been soooo nice! I also enjoyed some time that I was able to spend with my niece Madelyn over last weekend. I love that kid so much.

Going to: Well my list of things to do at home continues to grow and grow. (Maybe I shouldn't have enjoyed my favorite thing above so much). I plan on tackling a few things this weekend at my house that I have been wanting to get done. I would also like to work on making some cards (hobby of mine) so that I will have a stock of them for later this year. Christmas is coming you know! I plan on baking and cooking some this weekend as well. I already mentioned the MSC Cupcake Club and I have some new recipes cut out as well that I would like to try. Finally, I imagine that a late movie will be thrown in either Friday or Saturday night which is just dandy with me as well.

Praying for: Several families in the TRBC and LU community that are mourning the loss of loved ones. The community has been hit hard recently with deaths and is such a hard time for these families. Also praying for God's strength for myself as I am struggling with some things in my personal life. I need constant reminder that I should trust in Him and not only in trying to make things better by myself.

My Quote for the Week: I have a book that I am constantly writing down my favorite quotes and verses. What an awesome place to share them!

"Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and to change the world" - Harriett Tubman

I hope that everyone has an awesome and productive week!

Love, love, love your Friday Favorites...the quote is a great category, too! Will check on some of these authors/books next time I am at the library as it is always fun to read recommendations. Yes, I think that tree should be framed and hanging somewhere...it is a great photo!
