Five on Friday

I don't seem to have much to say on the blog lately. No, that isn't true, I just don't seem to take the time to sit and write. I am rarely at a loss for words so I could quite easily write about nothing here every day of the week. Trouble is, I don't want to write about nothing.
Well, it is Friday and that means Five on Friday. Amy has been poorly this week so I do hope she is feeling better now.
This week I'm just simply going to share five good things from my week. 

The temperatures this week have cooled to be relatively pleasant, in the mid to high 30s degreesC. This picture was taken last week when apparently the coolest spot in the house, according to Puss, was the fire place.

Today's outgoing mail

A cute friendship book in and looking for somewhere to go
Letters in and out. The Month of Letters is over. I didn't write everyday nor did I send something everyday but I had fun and made some new friends. That's very good.

I love listening to music. Not just listening, I like to sing and dance to it as well. This week I've been stuck in the 70s and 80s and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

I picked up my reserved books from the library so I have some good things to fill my mind during the week. A re-read of Burial Rites by Hannah Kent, School's Out by Jack Sheffield and Wild by Cheryl Strayed. I listened to her speak on the radio a couple of years ago and have been waiting for my library to get the book ever since.

Friday Night with Friends
It's the first Friday of the month so I am joining in with lots of other bloggers who craft and having a fun night in sewing. The big decision now, what to do? Sew, knit, crochet. We'll see?

There have been other good things too. My son visiting is the best but I didn't take any photos. My visit to the forest. A particularly good cup of tea. Lots of little things and it's nice when the good outnumber the bad.

I hope you've had a good week too.

Hello Tracy. It looks as if you've had a good week enjoying your son's visit, writing and receiving letters, listening to music and joining in the Friday Night with Friends with other bloggers who do crafting. An interesting lot of books awaiting to be read. I've heard Jack Sheffield speak at our city's literary festival as he's from our area. He's an entertaining speaker as you can imagine from his books on his teaching days. I'm sure the cooler temperatures makes life more pleasant. I feel for the animals and the need to find a cool spot. Have a lovely weekend.

It sounds like a great week! Your cat is so cute and obviously has the right idea. I love your music collection too, I am often the same when chossing music to do my housework to. Have fun tonight and a lovely weekend! xx

The History Anorak said...

Hall and Oates! Oh my.... long time no listen. Now I'll have to go to YouTube and see what I can find. Absolutely nothing wrong with being stuck in the 70s and 80s.

I am feeling terribly quilty as I have yet to post you a letter and we are now in March!!! I aim to do it but I wanted the letter to be lovely and life has been wildly busy . What I should have done was just sit and write it! I will I promise...

I like to sing to the music too. I use my MP3 player when I do my aerobics and I huff and puff and sing along---John Denver's been a favorite of mine for many a year.

We seem to love a lot of the same things - Books, music, kitties, crochet, our sons, a cup of tea, friends, blogging.

Now if I could only learn how to knit and sew!

Five very important favorite things... I like those.

Hope the weekend made you feel better. EnJoY your Sunday...xox

Hello, Tracy! What a lovely and interesting Five!

Have a great and still a bit cooler new week! :)

It looks like your week has been reasonably busy. Love the photo of Puss cooling off on the stove. I've read the Jack Sheffield book, nice easy reading, I enjoyed it. It's part of a series but stands alone as a story.
Have a nice week.

Five lovely things from your week. Glad the temperatures are better for you and for Puss who seems to have found the coolest place in what should be one of the warmest:)
