Friday's Fave 5

This week - it took me a couple of days to recoup from my Wahington DC trip. I ended up taking medication for the flight home - and boy did it wipe me out. I went to bed by 9:00 Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

But the best part about a vacation is the coming home part. It was so good to sleep in my own bed again. And I missed my husband. And I missed my kids. And I can't begin to tell you how I missed my sweet grandbabies. And I missed my sweet dog Josey too. She really missed me - Chuck said she wouldn't leave his side the whole week. She never does that. And now that I'm home, she won't leave me. If I open the door, she zips right out, determined to go with me. LOL It's good to know you are loved.

Let's see - it's time to name the five favorite things about the week. So here goes.

1. I loved being missed by my family and my dog.

2. Knitting - I started Tyler's little sweater and it's really fun. I also have started on some Christmas ornaments. Knitting has become so relaxing and fulfilling to me. I love the feel of yarn and I love wooded knitting needles.

3. I received my first acceptance on a magazine article proposal! I'm going to be published.

4. I took the day off work Thursday to babysit my little grandson Tyler. What a fun day we had - I just can't give him enough kisses. I also got to spend time this week with my sweet little marshmellow - Miss Ava Claire. She is so soft and light and as sweet as can be.

5. I'm turning 50 tomorrow. And I don't mind a bit. And I'm going to be spoiled by my family. They are taking me to see Disney on Ice. I love ice skating and I love Disney - what a perfect gift.

I also love Friday's Fave 5! If you would like to participate or read other lists, just click here and you will go to Living To Tell the Story.

Well first of all ... a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you! Fifty is something to be proud of. If you weren't this old you'd never have grandchildren. Yay!

And congratulations on your proposal being accepted. I am so proud of you. Just remember where you were a year ago. You've come a long way baby!

I am so glad you had a fun trip. I loved hearing all about it.

Have a great weekend!
