It’s been a year of counting Friday favourites, blessings, simple pleasures and highlights of our weeks. Thanks to Suzanne for hosting my favourite weekly meme (and the only one I actually do :). In honour of this special occasion, Suzanne has a giveaway – a basket of her favourite goodies! So today is the day to join the fun. Just list your favourite moments from the week, pop over to Living To Tell The Story and add your name.
1. We’re in pre-wedding mode around our place. Our son James, and his lovely bride to be, Nora, will be married a week from tomorrow! Exciting times!
Nora, my almost daughter in law, and Sarah at one of Nora’s bridal showers. James and Nora really have been showered with so many lovely gifts along with lots of love and best wishes. They are well set up to start house-keeping. (My friends and I have often wondered if we don’t need a shower or two especially after 32 years – my house-keeping items are getting a bit tattered 🙂
2. Even in the midst of wedding flurry, I’m finding time to enjoy the last of summer’s gifts ~ especially beach days.
I love this beach road – it runs right along the shoreline.
I don’t think this seagull was out of sorts – it was just the breeze that caused ruffled feathers 🙂
3. Can you guess what this is?
The view from my hammock
4. This week I’ve noticed a few signs of autumn knocking on the door ~ especially in the early morning.
Misty morning sunrise – don’t the old gravestones look a bit like chess pieces?
A spider’s lacy web in the early light.
Good morning Mrs. Ladybug ~ or is it Mr. Ladybug? Somehow that just doesn’t sound right . . .
5. Campfires under the stars
My beloved, very cheerfully, gathered some beach stones and helped built a backyard fire pit. It is so lovely to just sit out there, under the stars, listening to the fire crackle, chat and or maybe even sing.
Well, here I am ~ at the end of this week’s five favourites.
I haven’t even mentioned the woodpile. But that’s worthy of a solo post.
And here’s just a hint of exciting events coming up. Oldest boy and sweet wife arrive home this week. We’ll have a chance to show my DIL the Island in the summertime. What fun!
And very exciting news for Sarah. She won the lead role in a short film set on PEI.
Phew – weddings, home-comings, movie stars 🙂
I can hardly keep up with it!
Thanks for dropping in this week
congratulations Suzanne on a year of wonderful Friday Favourites!
