Friday’s Fave Five – July 16

It’s felt like a heavy week with the concern about fires and the oppressive smoke blanketing our city. Can I come up with five things? Maybe I need to try more than ever this week, so here goes. Blueberries. My favourite summer fruit is in season and, unlike raspberries which were burned by the extreme

Friday’s Fave Five – June 25

What? It’s Friday? Already? The week passed in a blur and I’ve no idea why. I’m not sure I can come up with five things but I’ll give it a go. Writing. I’ve been working on a couple of pieces for my writing group and pre-writing (which means thinking about) another for Story Circle Network’s

Friday’s Fave Five – June 18

Another week has flown by—the last one before summer officially arrives. Taking time, this morning, to look back and be thankful for small, simple things with Friday’s Fave Five. Watering flowers.
