Friday's FAVE Five

I've been out of the loop for a few weeks,
but it's always good to come back and connect with
the others who love to share their FAVE Fives.
Thanks Susanne for hosting.
If you'd like to join in the fun, check out the link.

Arriving home this week, welcomed us with a flurry of activities.

Vacation Times ~ for me are meaningful.
Yes, truly, we were busy...Reconnecting with family and friends. New opportunities.
What else can you say when you experience the warm tropical breezes? Let the good times roll.

Birthday Time Again
This little grand child is turning two today. We had so much fun with him, enjoying the beach days. Happy Birthday Silas! Many more happy years to come.
I think the party is cancelled...he's sick...poor thing.

Cooking Demonstration
I was asked to prepare a cooking demonstration at my nieces furniture store, Grand Pappy's using her appliances. This was Customer Appreciation Evening. I invited my friend Steff to be my sidekick and we both had so much fun. My friend Judy was my paparazzi that night and you can catch up with more details if you like, at Judith Front Porch.

We prepared our recipes and one of the biggest hits was
No Knead Italian Crusty Bread!
Artichoke & Roasted Pepper Dip
Buffalo Chicken Wings ~ to be posted.
Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers ~ to be posted.
Ginger Snaps
We winged the whole show and had a blast. I know we will be back.

Trans Siberian Orchestra & Concert
Each year my son has made me a CD of this music....but this year we received an early Christmas gift, inviting us to join him to this live concert. What a wonderful evening of music and dance. The group's annual holiday-themed, classic-rock extravaganza welcomes you to a complete show with arsenal of lasers, pyro, fog and scissor-lift staging. It was spectacular.

Friends from Facebook and Blog Land.
I have truly enjoyed connecting with many of you during the past years. So many of you have touched my life in many ways. By reaching out and opening the door, who would of believed I could have receive this wonderful blessing from all of you.

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!
I want to wish all of my American friends across the border a Happy Thanksgiving.
We feel blessed and privileged to have you as neighbors.

So this ends my highlights for this week. See you next week.
