My First Five on Friday


 If you know Amy from Love Made My Home, you know that she does Five on Friday.  Today I am joining in.  First, I will tell you that I have had three coffee dates this week and I have a lunch date today.  One-on-one, across the table with friends is my favorite way to have fun.  I feel richer for having the opportunity to hear my friends' news and to gaze at their lovely faces.
Secondly, if you have lost track of Mr. Badger you need to know that he is still resting at Kezzie's and will leave her house, soar across the Atlantic and land at Lisa's (Pen and Ink) in Minnesota very soon.  From Lisa's he will tour around the USA for quite a while and then go back to Mags in Belfast.  He's a hygge kind of guy and he's been treated royally so far.


 Thank you for your dear suggestions concerning the golden yarn.  I decided on a small shawl/scarf and I am trying new ways of holding my needles.  Who knew you could teach an old dog new tricks? (That's 3 then!)
 Four:  Bill returned from Taiwan yesterday and our friend Yiping sends tea for me!  Oolong this time!  I think the way the leaves unfurl is miraculous and this tea tastes sweet, light, and real. 

5:  Halloween!  We will go up to our Brad's church on Halloween because they have an annual harvest festival.  I will dress up as a gypsy.  I am going to sew a skirt for my gypsy self and put on a lot of eye make up, make a beauty mark on my upper lip, tie a bandana around my hair, and wear my cowboy boots.  I'm ready.

Thank you for Five on Friday-ing with me, sweet readers!  If you want to meet some new bloggers (always FUN!) pop over and click around!  (BIG FRIDAY HUG!)

Oh, I love oolong tea, what a special gift.
I continue to learn new skills with knitting,
I never imagined when I started knitting that
there would be a life time of skills to accomplish.
Enjoy you lunch date and your weekend.

How nice that your friend sends tea back home for you. I love visiting friends for a coffee too, and three meet-ups in a week would be heaven. I'm always learning new things in knitting too ... the adventure never ends!

That is some REAL tea - yum.
And that is indeed a very tiny scarf ;-)
Sounds like Mr. Badger is having a lovely time, which is good, because I know he loves being in his own cozy home best.
My favorite for this Friday is you brought back your blog roll! Thank you.

You stay so busy. I can see you as a gypsy--an exotic one with white tresses.

Aisling said...

I like meeting friends for coffee too in fact it's one of my most favourite pastimes even better if there's cake. I like the look of those tea leaves you just know tea like that will make a decent cuppa. Lovely coloured yarn it will make a cosy shawl and what fun dressing up for Halloween when I do I'm nearly always a witch.
Thank you for visiting my blog it was lovely to meet you.Have a great weekend :)xx

Kezzie said...

Such good things! Dates with friends are always good aren't they. That tea is amazing isn't it, my husband has some Chinese green tea that opens up, but is totally different to your tea! Amazing! I hope that you enjoy dressing up for the harvest service. Thank you for joining Five On Friday. I hope that you have a great weekend! xx

The tea looks so good, I drink coffee in the morning, but as fall comes on I drink tea in the evening.

Granny Marigold said...

Your tea leaves do look amazing! The littlest grand is catching a cold so he took a thermal cup of warm herbal tea along to school. I think that was such a good idea his mom had.
