1// My sister and brother in law came down for the afternoon on Memorial Day! Paul and Andrew played some frisbee golf and then we hit their favorite local ice cream place for a sweet treat. Paul took the picture for us…at least he got the girls and the cones in the shot! 🙂
2// I love hearing the announcement over the grocery store intercom that the in-store Starbucks has free samples! They come in the cutest cups and are the perfect size for a little treat. Also my excited face looks a lot like my annoyed face. Not sure what’s up with that.
3// When I’m home, Peggy is never very far away. She’s so sweet!
4// We’ve been watching the 500 Questions game show on ABC this week. The host has that quintessential (somewhat exaggerated) British accent that is super fun to imitate. Paul loves the show because it appeals to his brainy/nerdy side….I like it because the way the host says “Ahhhhfter the break!” makes me giggle. Simple pleasures.
5// This isn’t a high from the week, but it’s something I wanted to share. Yesterday a man came into the store where I work, asking for help and food. He appeared very desperate and in need. One of the employees did their best to help him and he went on his way. As another employee relayed the story to me afterward, she wondered if the solution of $20 and a bottle of water was really the most helpful gift for him. It’s a great thing to help people in need, but it’s also really wise to be informed. If you’re interested, here’s a post I wrote last year on how to help the homeless.
And now, a quick look back on the posts from this week…
Have a lovely weekend!
