Five on Friday

“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future. ”
Deepak K. Chopra (born 1946);
physician, writer

2.  There's a little quilt store in the village where one of our children lives and the little ones love to pop in with me and see what's new.  Today they had some gorgeous fabrics on sale for $5 per metre and some beautiful pink and brown prints that two of us fell in love with!  I love that this small  community has a great local business like this one!

3.  Costco on Friday afternoon at 4 p.m.??  Nuts!  You couldn't even navigate the main aisles with a cart but luckily there were no lineups in the checkout area.  

4.  I judged at a local fair today and enjoyed seeing all the beautiful things that people make and display.  There were 10 kinds of dilled vegetables (including radish pods which I've never seen before!) and 10 kinds of jam - lots of taste testing.  The best entry, in my opinion, was a jar of locally grown Evans cherry pie filling.  It was just perfect in every way!  It's inspiring to spend a few hours doing this.  

5.  We are so excited to welcome Malachi John Green to our family!  He was born early Friday morning and weighed 6 lbs. 7 ozs. .  I'm going next week to help and be with Samuel - but this little one decided to come early.  Mom and babe are both doing fine.  We now have 4 granddaughters and 4 grandsons :)


  1. WOW!!! Your family is growing so fast, Crystal! Congratulations to you all. And you have a wonderful time cuddling the littlest member of the family when you get there!

  2. Awwww congrats again Crystal!! Another little blessing to add to the family.

  3. wow, that quote is so powerful. So much to think about. And congrats again Gramma! So many little ones for you to love. :)
