Friday's FAVE Five

It's the end of another busy week.
Many delightful surprises for me that I can't help sharing.


What a surprise to be greeted with freshly baked pie by the yard.
Anneliese your recipe has become famous.
We devoured that with a fresh cup of coffee.

Plans were made to picnic on the Kitsilano Beach in Vancouver.
A warm sunny day in the could not get better.

The famous family quilt from 35 years ago was packed.
This was my first quilt purchased at an MCC Sale.
And who was  delegating her father with instructions of what to pack?
Salads, hamburgers, fruit and all the amenities.
I watched as my husband hastily packed all the supplies needed for a picnic,
while I was instructed to relax.
Those girls have been taught well.

The men stood by and operated the BBQ.
Who was delegated to bring the meat?
Cheerfully everyone pitched in and we had a wonderful time.

I loved watching this little fellow make his own slingshot.
Just the way a little boy should...

I also enjoyed a wonderful visit with Pondside, sitting on Judy's Front Porch.

Today a dear friend, dropped in,
one who supported and mentored my husband and I in our early years.
I love those surprise visits...and we both continued to share our stories.
Those are the highlights for this week.

Hope you all have a great extended weekend.


  1. A lovely week for sure Marg! Love all your photos of your time together enjoying each other!

  2. Looks like an awesome way to spend a celebration of a Mother - family, sunshine and food! Does life get better than that!

  3. I love your had a great week and well deserved I'm sure. You have taught your girls well indeed! I must try making one of those famous pies.

  4. What a grand week you had, Marg. That picnic must have been something else!
    I got home late last night - so good to be back - with memories of a lovely visit on Judy's porch!

  5. Hmmm... you are the second person who said they had a picnic for Mother's Day. That sounds like an awesome idea!

    Even better, is the idea you didn't have to plan, pack or carry any of it out!

  6. Good for your girls and hubby getting it all together and honoring you on Mother's Day. Looks like a nice sunny day for your Mother's Day too!

    Love the slingshot picture.

  7. What a great Mother's Day - we had the same menu here. And I was also instructed (ummm ordered!) to sit still and do nothing!

    Glad you had some wonderful visits with friends too. Have a great Victoria Day weekend Marg!

  8. A boy and his slingshot -- I love that picture! Sounds like a wonderful Mother's Day, full of rest and fun. Have a great week ahead.

  9. You had a great week, Marg. That's a precious photo of your boy with his homemade slingshot :)

  10. So nice to see you treated like that!

  11. I can't think of a better week than one spent with family. Picnics, yards, spring, little boys, etc. all make for a great week!
