Five Things Friday


I like to do a Five Things Friday occasionally so I can catch you up on things that don't warrant a whole post! Fun for me especially since I tend to be a little ADD anyway:)


  1. Our Rocky still isn't home. The ad came out in the paper yesterday. We are still hopeful but each day makes it less probable. I had no idea when my son brought him home nearly 2 1/2 years ago that I would grow so attached! I was really sad the other day and was sitting in my chair reading when I felt something patting my arm. Magee, our least affectionate cat was lying on the side tab and patting my arm. He did this for about 15 minutes! So sweet:)
  2. My 60th birthday is looming on the horizon...4 more days! My daughter has some things up her sleeve but not sure what! She did promise me it wasn't a surprise party because I hate surprise parties! Maybe she got some ideas off Pinterest. 
  3. I am loving my new Franklin Planner! It has already helped me to be more organized and get more done. I tend to forget less when I write it down. Organizing on paper helps my brain to organize better. I have tried several e-Planners but they didn't work for me. I really need paper and pen.
  4. Eating out of the garden is so yummy! I can't believe how much better homegrown vegetables and fruit taste. We have been thinning the beets and eating the little beets with the greens...sooo good! I can make a full salad with items from the garden. The green beans will be on in about a week.
  5. Hubby and I are doing a version of the Intermittent Fasting Diet for health and to try to lose a little bit of weight. We chose to do the "fasting" on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, eating 500 calories for me and 600 calories for him--one meal only, middle of the day. The other 4 days, we eat normal; no restrictions. We drink a lot of water, especially on our "fasting" days and try to exercise as well. I plan to add Oil Pulling on Monday for healthy teeth and gums.
Well, just a little bit of what's going on in my head...scary place:) Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by. I will be back on Sunday (I hope) for the Sunday Night Chit-Chat!

  1. So sorry about Rocky. It is always tough to lose a pet. So glad the Franklin Planner is working well for you. I got a new planner this week too, but I now use a less expensive planner but with the same principles. Hurray for healthy eating. Happy Birthday in four days! Have a good weekend!

    1. I need to find out what planner you're using; less expensive is always preferable in my opinion!

  6. As a huge dog lover with 3 adopted Siberian huskies I sure can feel your pain. Have you contacted animal control and other shelters in your area? Also, I have heard that the 4th is the most popular day for dogs to bolt. Two of mine get frightened with the fireworks and thunder.

    1. We live in a very rural area (1500 population for entire county) so the Sheriff is the only animal control and there is one Kennel, no shelters. We have zero fireworks where I live--waaayyy out, nearest neighbor 2 1/2 miles away; nearest town 16 miles. Extreme fire danger put the burn ban on June 27. Dry wheat fields and range land all around so fireworks here would be negligent. Thank you so much for your concern...we are beyond sad!
