My 1st Friday Fave 5 and Our Regularly Scheduled Friday Follow

Hello everyone. Welcome to another week of Friday Fave Five. Take a look back over your week and look for those things that were blessings to you and then join in with us. For details you can head over here.  Welcome also to bloggers from Friday Follow!

This is my first time joining this blog and I am excited about it.  I think it is a great idea.  An opportunity to look back on my week and think of 5 things that I loved, liked, was blessed with, etc.  Then to share with my blogger friends!!  Ok, enough mushy stuff, let's take a look at my list for this week.

1.  I was able to buy fresh strawberries and cherries to make homemade fruit leather for the first time.  I am slowly moving over to organic and healthier foods.  This is the first time that I've made us something this healthy from scratch, to be perfectly honest.  I've made healthy things before, but not this healthy.  I am very excited to try it tomorrow!

2.  My FIL bought a quad for the kids.  It is a very small one, but I am just a little over the weight limit on it.  That means I am able to ride.  lol  I have taken it out for a spin without the kids on it with me and boy oh boy!!  Momma's buying one of those for herself with her settlement!!  You bet your booty on that.  I miss having speed in my life.  I am just too safe and paranoid to drive fast in my mini-van.  lol  I need a horse with some spunk, or a quad that has some horses in it!

3.  I got the book from www.booksneeze.com that I get to read, review on my blog and keep the book for free.  It's called A Guy's Guide to Life by Jason Boyett.  I chose this book because I want a good Christian book for Bubba to read when he is older.  A book to help instill and teach him the way that a proper man of God should act.  I have one book for Stinky already so I chose this to keep for Bubba.  I am halfway through it so far, so stay tuned for a book review in the next day or two.

4.  My kitten, Solomon.  He is the funniest little guy to watch.  He's got some LONG legs and he uses those legs to JUMP everywhere!  I mean EVERYWHERE!!  If his little half pound body can get there, he bounds there!  It is just amazing.  I have never had a cat with his abilities.  He finds higher places to go in that our 2 larger cats haven't tried to get to!

5.  I am thankful for my FIL, although you probably will never hear me say that again!  I have issues with the man.  But he is helpful when he wants to be.  Last Saturday, (I know this is last week, but just hang tough) he gave me and the kids $50 to spend at garage sales.  Today I asked for $10 for gas to take Bubba to the car show tomorrow and he gave me $20.  He also helps a lot by bringing juice, milk, snacks and other foods for the kids.

Hi and welcome to FFF! I had cherries make my list this week too. Love your idea of making home made fruit leather out of the cherries and strawberries. Yummy!

Quad riding sounds like such fun. I have never tried it.
