Friday Five: Scenes from the week

Hello hello. TGIF and all that jazz. Since there was no Thursday Thoughts, you get my weekly catchall on Friday. I was going to put some things on blast today, but that can wait until next week.

1. Today is my Geege's birthday. My guard dog is 11. He's extremely pleased that the screen door was put in this week so everyone can hear his barking better than through the glass. Straight up baked chicken and bananas for the dogs tonight - two of Geege's favorites. Okay, maybe a birthday burger too. Dogs get to practice treat yo'self too in our house.
2. Has the weather been perfect for sleeping this week or what?
3. On Wednesday we said goodbye to this recliner that has been reclined a grand total of four times in two years. It's a perfectly fine chair, but it's not what I wanted for the space...I still think about the beautiful crushed grey velvet chair with nailhead trim that I left in an aisle of Marshalls long ago. I looked back on it longingly as I followed MFD to his must have chair. Regrets, I've had a few. Specifically this chair and the couch and loveseat in the basement. Anyhoo this recliner has gone on to serve a greater purpose up at Lori & Jack's lake house so we'll still be friends.
4. This week's library walk was too hot too soon. I'm not into 85 degrees in early May. I also started reading two books this week that were not for me...hence my love of the library. I just return them, not sit around all sour because I paid for them and couldn't stand them.
5. Happy Mother's Day to my mom & my stepmom! Happy day wishes also going out to the mom of my husband, to all of my friends who are moms and stepmoms, to my fellow fur mamas, to you mamas to be; and to those of you who are not traditionally defined as mothers but who are nurturers, caregivers, and warriors for those you love just the same. I hope you're appreciated by the people in your life daily. Big hugs to those of you missing your moms this weekend and every day too.
And a very happy birthday weekend to my stepdad as well. Lots of celebrations going on. Whew.

Enjoy friends! Do you have any super deluxe weekend plans?

  3. We have a basement full of furniture that Scott knows is not allowed to see the living room. I'm currently on the hunt for a patterned armchair and matching ottoman.
    Tomorrow equals a trip to the library because I'm out of books.

  8. Was Stolen a book that wasn't for you? I saw you were reading it and it's my turn for it at the library so I'll be starting it this weekend. I finished Fangirl which I kind of hated but didn't hate simultaneously. I'll explain more in my Tuesday post.

  10. The weather here has been the same; a little too hot for me for May as well. The humidity is gross but I refuse to put the AC on already.

    I stupidly requested a bunch of books that came all at once and they are sitting on my desk taunting me. Fuckers.

  15. Happy birthday to your little meatball!!!! What a cutie. Chicken & Bananas is so funny and so cute.

    Dang, that chair you left sounds CUTE. And the stress is real at those stores because you never know if they'll have it again. However, I have seen really cute gray chairs all over so I'm confident you can replace the recliner with something similar.

    Have a great weekend!

  16. Happy Birthday Geege!!!! What better a present than some delicious foods and the promise of disturbing others through a screen. Love it! That chair at Marshall's sounds fabulous. Maybe one day a similar one will appear again :) Hope you have a great weekend!!!

  28. Geege tongue! :P
    I'm not a fan of 85 degrees... EVER. There are about 3 weeks total in the year that I'm happy with the weather, lol

  29. Happy birthday to Geege and your step-dad. Have you ever talked about how you came up with the name Geege? I love it and I'm curious. :) 85 in May is ridiculous. It was 79 here today and that's pushing it for me.

  30. Aww...Happy Mother's Day, and back at'cha ;) Happy Birthday to Geege!
