Another Snowy Week (Friday's Fave Five)

FFF winter logo
Friday is the day we get together to remember the best parts of the week!  I'm glad you're here! If you'd like to play along, click through to visit our gracious hostess, Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.

Another week, another snowstorm (or two), so I've mostly been at home.  Still, a few things from this week really shine:
  1. When we went grocery shopping, my son said, "I'll be right back."  When he returned, he was holding a beautiful plant--which he wanted to purchase for me "just because."
  2. On Tuesday I was running behind schedule, and I didn't have dinner ready when my husband came home.  I was rushing to catch up, and he asked how I was doing. I explained that I felt as though I was ten steps behind, and I felt overwhelmed because of it.  His response was, "It's okay.  You are important enough to wait for."  (Have I mentioned that I have a wonderful husband??)
  3. As I've been refining the focus of my blog, the Lord has been working on me through the 31 Days of Heart Matters series by Amy Bayliss.  I am still praying on it, but I know that He has been leading me through the process.
  4. My new dishwasher is here! :)
  5. Finally, one more frivolous item:  I have long wished to have an immersion blender, but I couldn't justify the price of the ones I was finding.  When my supermarket had one on sale for about $10, I couldn't pass it up.  I've been having fun experimenting with it to make frothy coffee drinks, hot chocolate, and spaghetti sauce.
With all the snow we've been having, I wanted to share a few pictures:

    Oh goodness the snow!

    Yeah to the dishwasher, I hope it gives you some extra time. I know mine has :)

  6. Awww....what a sweet boy you have! He must have learned that from his dad, by the sounds of it!

    Looks like you have about as much snow as we do here in Alberta - which, IMHO, is WAY too much!
