Friday's Fave Five #96

Despite the insane heat we’ve been experiencing here in PA this past week, I can find some things to be  thankful for ---

{one} A  great time spent with family last Saturday. My Aunt & Uncle host us for a picnic in honor of the 4th each year.  It’s always a time for Gracie to pick blueberries.  My Uncle has a nice fire ring and we roast hot dogs and marshmallows for s’mores.  This year, we even got to see fireworks, as one of their neighbors was setting them off (and they may very well have been the “illegal in PA” kind – because they were pretty nice ones! 

{two} A sweet family from our church who hosted us for a visit on Sunday evening.  Although we have been attending this church for over a year now, it’s hard not to be a little gun-shy after our past experience.  So, we’re just hanging back and taking things slow.  It was nice to know that someone cared enough to share  their evening with us, and desire  to get to know us better. 

{three} This week was the official kick-off of The Bible in 90 Days reading program.  Though I cheated and started a few days early, I’m counting it among my blessings for this week.  I’m really glad that I decided to splurge and order the special Bible because it’s so much simpler (and less distracting) to read.  So far, so good – I’m keeping up!

{four} On Wednesday evening, after 2 days of majorly intense heat, friends from our old church (who are more like family, really) called us to invite us to come and spend some time in their pool that evening.  What a blessing!  Talk about a refreshing way to end the day!

{five} I am sitting here at my computer right now, and above my head I hear the sound of violin and guitar duets.  This is something new that I’ve not heard before and it’s rather nice.  I feel like I’m at a country hoedown or something.  The fact that my girls are both adept enough at their respective instruments to put the two together now is exciting!

It's been unbelievably hot up here in Maine too. Blah! Sounds like you had an excellent week though!

We had to break down and get a YMMCA membership just for the pools! lol

Sounds like a great week. I would love to hear duets in my house-maybe in the future. :)

Your family July 4th sounds like lots of fun!

I loved #3. Reminds me to be aware to do the same for someone!
