Hey, It's Fave Five Again #4

Once again, I'm delighted to share with you,
my favorite highlights for this past week.
You too, can join in.
Check out the details at Suzanne's at Living to Tell a Story.

1.Gardening is a Favorite in Spring.
Remember last week, I showed off those gorgeous tulips?
Here they are, I have taken them out,
I will clean them up and dry them out for next fall.
Meanwhile I've prepared my garden for planting.
My little helpers are coming out this weekend.

2. Cooking an Old Fashioned Pot Roast
There's nothing like an old fashioned pot roast,
smothered with carrots, celery, onions and potatoes.
My kids can smell the roast a mile away.
There's never enough for leftovers.

3. Sharing Haagen Dasz.
Is there anything better than shopping with your daughter,
in the big city and enjoying room service at midnight?

4. Watching my Farmer Dream of a New Tractor.

Way out in the distance my husband noticed that the neighbor
bought a new tractor for his small acreage farm.
Farmers love to look and schmooze about their toys.

#5. An Evening with Ben Heppner
Farmers do not only work.
A drive to the city, supper out and a concert?
We do enjoy and appreciate the classics.
We spent an evening with Canadian singer, Ben Heppner,
recognized worldwide as the finest dramatic tenor.
Joining him was the Pacific Mennonite Children's Choir,
MEI Chamber Singers, and
Vancouver Chamber Choir and orchestra.
What a wonderful evening of music.
They sang well known Songs from the Heart.

What's the highlight of your week?
This week the sun has been shining every day.


  1. Love your favorites this week. What a fun little excursion with your daughter. Love it! There really is nothing like a good pot roast to make the kids come home :0)
    Boys and their toys!!
    Have a great weekend Marg!

  2. What a lovely week!

    My husband is a preacher but he has a farmer's heart - he would love to own a tractor!!

    Mmm - hagen daz! That sounds so good!

  3. dNothing is better than sharing ice cream with your daughter! My daughter and I do it all the time, we take turns picking flavors because we can't ever agree on the same one!

  4. Marg, you have had a lovely week to be sure. . .and I can relate to the things you have enjoyed.
    My best part of the week? Sunshine. . and lots of it.

  5. So where do they serve Hagen Dasz at midnight? Sounds perfect!

    I'm a little sad about the tulips being retired...they still looked quite striking.

    I'm so glad I was able to share in your 'favorite five' again this week. Sharing supper and an evening of wonderful music was among my top five as well!

  6. That shows you how much I know about gardening. I had no idea you have to take tulips out.

    Your pot roast is making me drool. That looks soooo good.

    Hoping your farmer gets the tractor he's dreaming of.

    What great favorites. The pictures are awesome. Sharing ice cream with your daughter - how fun. You did indeed have a shining week. Have a great weekend.

    PS next time you come to Hawaii I'll make sure I drive the bus slowly so you can catch all the sites :)

    Rabbit, rabbit

  8. love sharing ice cream! me and my daughter do it all the time!

  9. What a beautiful week you had! You take such lovely clear photos. And I love the flower pictures in your sidebar.

    I totally love the smell of a pot roast meal, too. Hmmm... I think that's what I'll make for Sunday dinner!

  10. What a great list. I have always thought I was cut out to be a farmer. Well ... a farmer's wife.

  11. That Haagen Dasz ice cream makes me drool!! I've still got ome in thye freezer, but I'm trying to loose some weight, and a long weekend is very dangerous as it is! That pot roast makes me hungry too! Great FFF post! Hope you'll have a nice week!

  12. Those look like great favorites Marg! I love the excursion with your daughter. Time to do that with mine!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  13. I thought I smelled pot roast the other night...was that yours?

    Music, ice cream, room service. All good things!

    The way your farmer gazes at tractors, that's how The Professor looks at big lights and lighting boards and computers!

  14. I hope to become a gardener one day. The only thing I can grow so far is kids. :-)

    Number 2 looks scrumptious! And I've simply not experienced number 3 nearly often enough.

  15. That pot roast looks so good! I'm inspired to make one now.

    I love your wide open spaces. You are blessed!

    Thanks for sharing...

  16. I love that old blue tractor and memories it inspires of my grandfather

  17. Love potroast! That concert sound wonderful.

  18. I really enjoyed reading your list. What a great week. Pot roast, ice cream, tractors and tulips.
    I also like Steve Nash. I think he's great!!
