Belated Five for Friday

Well, today is definitely NOT a Friday.  However, I didn’t have time to post this before we headed out of town early Friday morning.  Here’s my belated 5’s.


Breakfasts with my boy!  We’ve been having such a good time with our leisurely breakfasts.  We’ve had cheesy eggs, pancakes, and even oatmeal with all the fixings this week.  We made these banana bread protein pancakes from Julie at Peanut Butter Fingers.  Click here to see her list of healthy pancake recipes.  I have no photographic evidence of these pancakes as I (and Holden) devoured them too quickly!


A new cute clutch – I needed a new clutch after I discovered that my white, old faithful from Charlotte Rousse (only maybe a decade ago!) had literally changed color due to have a black clutch on top of it!  As you may have guessed, my white clutch was not of the highest quality and who knows what “it” is/was actually made of.  I picked up this cute clutch from TJ Maxx for a decent prices especially considering it was a nicer brand.  Perhaps this one won’t turn colors in say a decade or two.

Prayers for Charleston – As you may remember, I really like Charleston and traveled there with my mom and sister back in April. I was so saddened to see a shooting at a place of worship in downtown Charleston.  Those poor people were having a BIBLE STUDY when the shooter entered the church.  There really is no such thing as  a “safe place.”  Not our schools, churches, or even our homes.  Personally, I get angry.  I’m sure there is some sordid past that led this individual to make this decision and take this action.  Is it weird that I’ve actually had the thought of what happens if someone enters my church while we are all kneeling in prayer completely unaware long before this incident?  (P.S. I’m aware the answer is yes.  It was a rhetorical question.)  What should we do?  Obviously, pray.  Obviously, seek justice for those who were killed.  But what then?  What about our policy on guns in the United States?  I’m not sure.



On a lighter note…we tackled letter Rr yesterday and review letter Mm!  Little summer homeschooling if you will – in 30 minutes or less!

Absorbine Jr. – I have a little bit of an achy shoulder.  Fortunately, we have some Absorbine Jr.  Have you ever used this stuff?  I even love the stinky smell of it!  🙂
