Friday’s Fave Five # 60

FFF fall background

I’ve been away for a couple of weeks now from listing my favorites for the week.    So I thought I’d get back with the start of November. 

If you’d like details about FFF click here and visit Susanne, our host. 

So with the beginning of a new month, here are 5 things that made me happy this week.

IMG_05631.  Cool weather! Even on an overcast day in Thailand it's still hot and sticky but this week we’re enjoying  such lovely weather.  Everyone can’t stop talking about it.  The mornings are cooler that I’m able to exercise later than usual without it being too hot.  It then remains cool throughout the day too.  It’s gorgeous!

2.  Rejoicing and praising with a friend.  A friend of mine does “Prison Ministry” On Mondays and Friday’s she visits a prisoner in one of the many prisons here in Bangkok .  This week the lady she’s  been visiting for the last couple of years was finally released on Wednesday.  After 16 years in prison she got on a plane and headed back home, which for her was South Africa. 

3. Aspiring kid. For now, my 6 six year old told us that she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.  I know this may change later on, maybe even next week she’ll want to be something else, but for now I don’t mind it the Doctor aspirations.  I will dream with her. IMG_0546

(the doctor in our community compound was kind enough to help her out with her class project and loaned her the stethoscope and coat!)

4.  Coffee and Chocolate.  Sometimes I wonder if it’s these 2 things that help me get through the days.  Lately I’ve been busy and especially with International Day coming up in 2 weeks I’m starting to stress again……

5.  NBA.  The season has finally started and I know it’s a long one too – 82 games long.  The LA Lakers are off to a great start 5-0.  I’m hoping for a 3-peat!!

I hope you’ve all had a great week. Make sure to visit Susanne for more fave fives.

Happy Weekend!

What a sweet picture of your little dreamer!

We're excited about the NBA season here, too -- but it's because of the Miami Heat!

Happy Friday.

I'm trying to instill the doctor aspiration in my kids (bad mom!) - a doctor in the family would be so handy:)! No luck so far.

I smiled with your weather comment. Your happy your weather is cooler and I'm happy mine is warmer. LOL. Wonder if they are around the same temperature?

Oh oh oh. I love those orchids. And that bright smile on the doctor-to-be. I think there's a bit of determination in her bright eyes...
