Some weeks drag, others seem to pass by in the blink of a eye. This was one of the latter. (On that note, we seem to be moving through February at an equally swift pace. Strange, for a short month that usually seems so long.)
Anyway, it’s time for Friday’s Fave Five—an opportunity to look back, with gratitude, at the week that was.
Warmer temperatures. The cold snap broke and Gerry is able to get out on the hiking trails again. It’s good for him—and me!
Fresh bread and homemade soup. Gone are the days when baking bread was an all-day thing and soup had to simmer for hours on the stove. Enter no-knead bread recipes and the Instant Pot. Now homemade soup and warm, fresh bread is an easy supper time meal.
Virtual medical appointments. There are some things that can be handled quickly and easily over the phone. I give two thumbs up to this new way of doing things.
Zoom. Around here, we Zoom regularly. Whether it’s one-on-one conversation with my spiritual advisor, our Bible study groups, or Sunday morning church, Zoom helps keep us connected in this time where connection is a challenge.
Watercolour. I’ve got a lot to learn, and I’m still trying to decide where I want to put my focus, but I’m enjoying the process of washing pigment on paper and letting it play. I’m leaning toward abstract but enjoy dabbling with landscapes too.
We have entered the season of Lent and, while it’s not a tradition that has been part of my life, I’m leaning in to a Lenten journey this year. Do you observe Lent? I’d love to hear about your practice.
