Happy Friday! I am going to bring back the weekly roundups of 5 things I’m loving/enjoying/thankful for each Friday. I used to do these every week in the early days of blogging and moved away from them in the name of more serious content, but I think that right now we can all use a little bit of joy, fun and gratefulness in our days.

I hope you’ll join me in recounting the blessings from your week! Here are mine:

#1 Sunday Brunch

I made a breakfast casserole and pulled pumpkin bread out of the freezer for our Sunday brunch. We enjoyed eating it before online church, and it was nice to have the leftovers on hand for breakfast later in the week!

#2 Home Projects

The weather has been heavenly this week! Paul and I washed our cars on Sunday afternoon, and the rest of the week Paul has been busy with yard work, pressure washing the carport and staining our deck. Our home projects are never perfect, but it is definitely an improvement. 🙂

#3 The Best House Pants 

These pants from JCPenney are the best house pants! They’re like a cross between leggings and athletic pants – and they come in petites! They’re presentable but yet so comfortable. (FYI: Penny’s doesn’t have free online returns, so if you want to return something for free you’ll have to wait until the stores open up again)

#4 This quote from New Morning Mercies: “God takes the disasters in your life and makes them tools of redemption. The hardest things in your life become the sweetest tools of grace in His wise and loving hands. What looks like a disaster may actually be God’s grace.”

#5 Social Media Break

I took a 24 hour break from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter one day this week, and it was so good for me. I used to always log out of those accounts on Saturday but have gotten away from that habit. It might be a good idea for me to implement this on a weekly basis!

I hope you’ll join me in recounting the blessings from this week! It might require a little creativity, but you also might be surprised how easily they come to your mind. ❤

  1. We’ve been having waffles for Sunday brunch prior to online church services. They are my husband’s specialty (his recipe was even published in a Gooseberry Patch cookbook!) but we haven’t had them on Sundays for years due to time constraints. The first week we had chicken bacon from the freezer as an accompaniment; the second week I made homemade breakfast sausage with ground turkey. Easy and scrumptious! This week bacon was on sale so I had my hubby pick some up when he did the grocery shopping.


  2. Glad you’re finding new and fun things to do together at home. Breakfast casserole is my favorite!! My best tip on home projects – the more you do them, the better you get at them. We used to be totally clueless, but have slowly built up a collection of tools and supplies to actually be good at projects. Hope you have a great weekend!


  3. This week I found that silencing my phone (and placing it face down!) brought some peace into my days. Messages—which I checked on my own schedule—were like a little surprise instead of a distraction/ obsession/ obligation. If you can do this, even just for part of your day, while you are reading or relaxing, I highly recommend it. Thanks for the reminder to celebrate the positives 🙂
