My Friday Finds . . .


A few of the things I find each week that inspire me to want to do better, to create, to become better, to read more, to watch, to just DO something! Things that delight, inspire, and bring me joy.  Maybe they will do the same thing for you!

 *"Them that calls on me
must come with good hearts,
tender feelings, speak the truth,
to my face and behind my back,
but gross sinners must keep away.
Strive for the Love of God in your hearts."

Cooking in The English Kitchen today  . . .  Boursin Stuffed Jacket Potatoes, the small batch. These were really delicious!

I had a great time yesterday with my father and Cindy.  We went to the hospital to see the heart specialist and then we went to the Running Man store in New Minas, and then to the Cambridge Convenience store, stocking up on our Costco wants.  Then we went to Jonny's for lunch!

This is dad enjoying his fish and chips.  We dropped him back at his place and then we came to mine to see if I could get onto my street. They were going to be working on it. Alas, I could not. So I went back to Cindy's and we spent some girl time together.   I called my next door neighbor about 3 to see if they were done and they were so I came home then.  There was a note on the door to say that the electrician will be here this afternoon to fix my heat pump. Halleluiah!  Fingers crossed!

Cindy and I are off out this morning as I need to get some Birthday cards and a Birthday gift for Dan whose Birthday is next week.   We have to leave early as I need to be back by noon at the latest. All they need is another excuse not to come!

I hope you have a wonderful Friday!  Be happy, be blessed and don't forget!

And I do too!     


  1. Lovely finds today, that little bunny is adorable. Good news about the heat pump, hope they get it fixed. Sounds like a busy morning for you yesterday topped off by delicious fish and chips. It's a sunny day, probably the last of the cooler ones as it looks like summer-like weather is heading out way next week. Enjoy your morning with Cindy.

  2. LOTS of neat ideas here!! Glad the doc visit went well and they are supposed to fix your heat pump today!! Hope that goes well too!
