Friday’s Fave Five – February 18, 2022

Let’s see. Can I do it? It’s been a week of highs and lows and it’s hard to believe it’s already Friday. Maybe I especially need to do a Friday’s Fave Five post this week so, here we go.

Coffee and conversation. Time spent with friends talking about anything but the elephants is always food for the soul.

Float therapy. I’ve been at this for a little over a year now and can honestly say it gets better the longer I do it. Maybe it’s a case of needing to practice. I’m up for the continued challenge. 🙂

Abstract acrylic painting. I haven’t had as much opportunity as I’d like, but the little time I spent this week putting paint on paper was hugely satisfying.

Games. I’ve had some sweet chess wins this week. I’m pleased with my progress from when Gerry and I first started playing every day and I lost every game. I think we’re pretty closely matched now. I also enjoyed a few games of Bananagrams with Laurinda (aka the Bananagram Master) and won a respectable number of them too.

Light. It’s noticeably lighter earlier and later in the day. The darkest shortest days are behind us and hope springs.

Yes, it helps to ponder the good things from this week and pray about the rest.

Happy Friday, friends.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I’m not familiar with float therapy so I will google that! I’m assuming it has something to do with swimming?

    Coffee and conversation is always a blessing to me!

    My daughter Claire used to LOVE to play bananagrams when she was in elementary school. SO fun.


  2. I play chess so infrequently, I have to learn it all over again when I do play. Good for you for mastering it! I love when we start getting more noticeable daylight. Good coffee and conversations are great, especially together.

  3. I love playing Bananagrams!
    Yes, knowing the days are lighter longer is encouraging for me. This cold cold week I have been purposely sitting in the sunshine just to absorb the warmth and light. And afternoon tea helps.
    Coffee and conversation with friends is great therapy for winter days too. I’m glad you had that opportunity to be recharged and recaffeinated.
