Daily 5 - Year 2, Day 57

Today's Daily 5:
  1. This joke made me chuckle when it arrived in my email inbox this morning: "After the death of a never married 94-year old spinster of his parish, the rector was given a note from her personal belongings. In the woman's handwriting were specific instructions for her funeral service. Along with the suggestions for Scripture readings and music were the following orders: "There will be no male pallbearers. Since they wouldn't take me out when I was alive, I don't want them to take me out when I'm dead.
  2. Eating a fresh nectarine for breakfast 
  3. arriving at mom and dad's just in time for an offer of dad making frittata for lunch with leftovers from yesterday's thanksgiving ham 
  4. This facebook status from someone I know a little, which made me laugh out loud since I've been having a conversation with a friend about that very topic: "Some of my deep-thinking friends (and especially the Christian ones it seems) make me smile, and sometimes wince, because they just can't post a status update that is simply fun or happy. Everything's gotta be intense or profound it seems. Hope your lives are occasionally a bit lighter than your status updates my friends." 
  5. an unexpected skype call with a dear friend in the midst of a day when I was struggling. the laughter and her gentle reminders of truth were oh so helpful this afternoon 
  6. every historical village trip (like the one I made on Saturday) requires a visit to the old-fashioned working bakery. and purchases at said bakery. knowing that Thanksgiving was coming and that there would be leftover mean, Saturday's bakery purchase was a freshly baked loaf of sourdough bread. A loaf that smelled fantastic. A loaf that, when sliced, and made into a grilled ham and cheese sandwich with leftover ham from yesterday's Thanksgiving meal made for a divine sandwich. 
  7. watching a few episodes of Grey's Anatomy on DVD 
  8. catching up on blog reading 
  9. laughing on skype this afternoon with my friend about last night's daily 5 (I miss having her be the peanut gallery across the room while I write those lists!) 
  10. Being reminded over and over again lately that I am actually someone who is loved.

The frittata and the sandwich with the ham both sound yummy. :-)

The peanut gallery misses her job...especially when you would have enjoyed my evening's company and meal, as well! Skype will have to suffice for now, eh?

The peanut gallery is currently watching the cat, who is precariously balanced on the top of the rocking chair, try to catch her own tail and nearly fall off and land on her head :-) It's rather amusing...if you can picture it!
