Friday Favorites





It's time for more Friday Favorites.............here's a few of mine.



These are two of my favorite candies.  I like to grab one of each after dinner.  Together they are only about 80 calories and they really satisfy that "sweet craving" for me.




I have had neck issues for about 7 years.  Now, my neck doesn't hurt at all but the pain between my shoulder blades, across my shoulders and partially down my arms can be tough at times. I ask my Neurologist why, if I had neck issues, my neck doesn't hurt.  He chuckled and explained why I experience the discomfort in those areas.  Anyway, can I just tell you that in recent months IcyHot Dry Spray has become my best friend.  Someone told me about it and I immediately purchased some and I use it quite regularly.  I love the ease of application and that it is NOT the least bit messy.  Definitely a favorite!



Surprise! Surprise! More bird decor.  I found this on Wayfair and it was the perfect piece for our mantle.  It was a natural color so I spray painted it a bronze, added the greenery and the fairy lights. I am most happy with the results.



I love, love this time of year and our yard.  It gets more beautiful with each new day.  And, the green grass is like "icing on the cake."  Hubby planted rye grass last fall and it has thrived and we had green grass throughout the winter. All the landscape is thriving with new growth and blooms and it makes me happy. It's a favorite this week for sure!  NOTE: In case you noticed, yes, that's Amazon packages by the front door.  I did not even notice them until after I had taken the picture. ~big chuckle~ 



Heavens to Betsy!  I did not know what I missing in these nutrition teas and shakes until recent months.  We have a little shoppe about 3 miles from our house and I was in that area and decided to get a tea.  Well, I should have never done it because I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Then on my next visit I got one of the shakes and now I treat myself to one of the shakes for my lunch once a week.  And, I generally get a couple of teas a week.  I can hardly believe the teas have little to no calories and the shakes are under 300.  Yes, they are a favorite for sure.  And, it doesn't hurt that I made friends with the owners and enjoy visiting with them while I'm there. 


And, this man right here, well, he's our pastor and he's right at the top of my list of favorite preachers. He brings the Word Sunday in and Sunday out in such a simple and direct way and  always leaves us with lots of "food for thought."  I love how he applies each sermon to our lives and encourages us in our walk with the Lord.

  4. I will be looking for that icy hot spray. Thanks for the tip! Your home is magazine beautiful. The lawn looks like a green on a golf course! Just beautiful! I drove through the McDonald's drive thru the other day and ordered a caramel latte. Oh my gosh, I wish I hadn't because it was delicious and I need one right now just thinking about it. Happy weekend! xo

  8. Your garden is looking beautiful. It's one of my favorite times of the year too; lots of birds chirping, everyone spring cleaning their home and garden, lots of flowers in bloom, etc. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  9. Being a suffer of neck pain I must try this dry spray out! Ice has always been my best friend with neck pain which is due to osteoarthritis of the neck which is a royal pain in the BUTT! But I will check this spray out. Oh I love those little nutrition drinks. The shakes, boosts and teas are so good. We have a little nutrition shop in our community and I will tell you, those boosts drinks became a welcomed delight for me while trying to build back up my immunity from covid. Hope you have a great week Lea. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  10. Wish I had one of those shakes or teas right now...they look VERY appealing! Your bird decor turned out just lovely...I need you to help me do some redecorating. I'm in a slump!!! Our church just called a new pastor. I was on the Search Comm. and it was a grueling process. I pray we have chosen the man God wants us to have. He will come to preach and be voted on next week. I sure have been praying a lot over him!!! I am going to try and find some of that spray...I've been having some issues and this might help. Your yard and home look lovely. We had two trees in the front yard cut down a few months ago and I'm still mourning their loss. It will take awhile for our grass to fill in and that makes me sad too because we normally have a lovely yard. Hubby says give it time, but I do tend to be impatient!!! Hope you have a lovely week. Now off to a (dreaded) dr. appt!!!

  11. I have similar neck issues and the pillow I bought a few years ago from the mattress store has made an enormous difference. I will see if I can find the brand. Your front yard looks gorgeous!
