these are a few of my favorite…”

Just a couple of my favorite pictures I took this week….

Oh how I did not need to see my daughter come home with this package last night! She went to Alabama yesterday to meet with her professor about her class/reading for this semester. I guess she passed by this place and bought some to bring back. I shouldn’t have…but yes, I have sampled one or two!

A few redbirds/cardinals have found their way back to my back yard feeder and for some silly reason, that makes me very happy. I love to watch them! There are plenty of sparrows and other birds but I like the cardinals best.

And this picture will mean nothing to anyone but me. I SO should have taken a before shot but just never thought about it. There are two doors at the bottom of the entertainment center and everyone just opened it up and tossed in videos, stuff or whatever; there was no organization at all. Liz pulled everything out and lo and behold, there were two black shelves sitting on the bottom completely covered up by tapes! Who knew! We put both shelves in so now it’s more like 4 sections. Then we threw away a box of about 50 tapes of old tv shows, nothing we wanted! There’s still a big box of movies and other tapes we might take somewhere and donate. These are a few bought things we’re keeping for the time being and a lot of home movie tapes we hope to get put on dvd one day. But this just makes me happy to see it all neat!

I’m glad it’s Friday. Not sure what we’re doing this weekend but I might need to plug away on my list a bit more. I hope to catch up on blog reading too!
Got any fun weekend plans?

    Wow, the cabinet looks so good! 🙂

  2. Gail Says:

    Thanks to you Elizabeth, it does look good! You and I can appreciate it because we knew what it looked like before!

    It looks great, Gail. I’ve been slowly going through our old tapes too. Old tv shows I taped for the kids that arent’t even really all that clear. They need to go. We don’t even watch tapes anymore yet I’m still reluctant to get rid of certain movies and stuff that I liked.

    We don’t have a Krispy Kreme place here and that is probably a good thing! The closest one is 2 hours away but once a year the school behind us does a fund raiser and brings them in. Then we feast! :v)

    Yum, luv Krispy Kreme. We have one here, but we rarely if ever go to it. I tend to get some KK donuts from the local grocery right around Christmas. Sort of a tradition around here, along with my sticky buns I make.

    Good job on cleaning out tapes. We need to do that here.

    I thought this was Friday Fave 5, where are your other two, hahaha! Just kidding 🙂

  5. Becky Says:

    Do you know that I have NEVER eaten a Krispy Kreme donut? Never. I do not DARE!!

    And your entertainment center looks much better than mine. I think it looks great. And I can picture exactly what it looked like before because guess what? It looked like mine looks now 🙂

    I’m a bird fan too. So I completely understand you being taken by the cardinals. They are delightful. And they love a feeder!

    I love the picture of the cardinals. We don’t have them out here, and it makes me sad that I never get to see them. I know that sounds weird, but I love red and I would love to see one perched outside my window.

    I, too, can appreciate your entertainment center because from your description ours looks like the “before!” Or at least it did before I cleaned it out. And Krispie Kremes — thank goodness the closest one is 10 miles away!

  7. annie Says:

    Yum! I love when you get the krispy kremes with the hot light on and they melt in your mouth! It’s been so long… I think it was when we were in Orlando last Fall.

    yummy donuts…simple yet oh so good

  9. Robinznest Says:

    We don’t have Cardinals out here in the west and when I was in Washington DC last month I kept seeing them everywhere! They are so beautiful – I took a bunch of pictures of them.
    And clean cabinets- I know what you mean – they make you feel so good.

    As for weekend plans – I have to work Saturday so that pretty much ruins my weekend.

  10. Nancy Carson Says:

    I love Krispy Kreme, especially when the HOT sign is on. Way too good!

    You have really been busy on your list. I need to do the same but a sinus infection has me down lately. I hope to get energized soon.

    No weekend plans either but I hope yours is a great one! ENJOY!

  11. Dawn Says:

    Well…at least the box says there aren’t any trans fats, right? 😉

  12. Heidi @ GGIP Says:

    I love Krispy Kremes. To get fresh one’s I would have to drive an hour though, so I haven’t had any since last time I was in NC.

    I wish I could get a bit more organized too.

  13. Dawn Says:

    ok now i want some donuts for breakfast 😉

    way to go getting organized.
