Friday Five

It's a random five this week!

1. The September issue of Victoria magazine arrived yesterday!  Its the British issue and many of the articles are on Scotland.  It was glorious to sip a cuppa yesterday and enjoy the beauty in this magazine.

2. I had to run some errands on Wednesday, including getting new front tires on the van, and a stop at a local dairy for milk.  This was my view on the way home.

3. A few weeks ago, I found this sign in the Dollar Spot at Target.  I always look through this section because there is hidden treasure in there at times.  It looks cute in my kitchen.

4. With the high heat, humidity, and rain we've been experiencing this week, I was not surprised that it was foggy this morning.

5. I sent my mom this photo of me laying on the Physical Therapy table with heat on my hips and lower back.  Its the best feeling.  I hate when the timer goes off!

I hope you have a lovely weekend.  We certainly will.  Rachel comes home tomorrow for a two week break!  My brother's family will be arriving this week too, and we'll be celebrating my parents 60th anniversary next weekend!

I hope that those of you in the excessive heat warning areas (like we are in) stay cool.  Check on your neighbors, drink plenty of fluids.  If you don't have air conditioning, find places to hang out that do - cafes, libraries, shopping centers.

Take good care friends!


  1. you look SO relaxed with the heat hugging you, deanna. ♥
    love victoria magazine - and fog picture. happy anniversary
    to your folks. 60 years is a wonderful blessing!

  2. I wish you could take your heat therapy home with you!
    We are going to the ranch today and I am looking forward to seeing the corn crops along County Line Road. It will look like your photo except the road is gravel.
    I love Victoria magazine! I don’t subscribe to any right now but I have several favorite back issues from years past I still enjoy looking at.
    Target is Amber’s favorite store and it’s the quads favorite, too. They earn $ and spend it in the Dollar spot!
    Stay cool and I hope your back and legs feel better and better!

  3. I was thinking about you when I was at my PT appointment this week. I'm glad you're finding it helpful! And that heat is good!! Enjoy the weekend!!

  4. Victoria magazine is the perfect companion to a cuppa. 60 years? Wow! Congratulations to your folks. Love the sign from Target! I guess I'd better spend some time in that section of our Target.
    Hugs, Nancy

  5. Love that magazine and your cup and saucer. It is hot and humid here too. Enjoy your day dear friend. Hugs

  6. Ah the nice part of PT! Hope you are improving! I think we are getting some cooler weather this coming week, and rain. We need both!
