Friday's Fave Five July 23, 2010

Hello and welcome back to the farmhouse! Today's Fave Five is going to cause laughs, I guarantee it!

  • A high pain threshold.  I got new Nikes yesterday...the first name brand pair of sneakers I have had since I was living at home and I got a checkerboard Chuck Taylor Converse high-tops...I have blisters the size of quarters on my heels from walking to town this morning...I left home at 6:26 and got to the Rite Aid minutes after they opened at 8:00...a not intended stop to buy some Dr. Scholl's blister pads...which then leads me to my next Fave:
  • God's provision, once again. I needed to get out of the house today and do something actually constructive. I went into The Big City of N*****t with my hubby three days this week but I didn't really get much done. The library there charges $.50 PER PAGE, black and white, to print anything...and they don't allow the use of flash drives for working on documents, even for college students, so I didn't get a lot done except...drum roll, please:
  • Electronic paperwork for MY NEW JOB!! I am working for ASM as a food demonstrator at the local Shaw's, the Bangor Shaw's, and the Walmart Supercenters in Bangor, Brewer, and Newport. If you live in any of these areas, keep an eye out for me, you just might see me. My hiring bonus got me...
  • My iPod Touch 4th Generation...and I am having LOADS of fun with it...the only thing now is that I will have to buy the 12v charger for in the car because I can't run the computer to charge it twice a day, lol! If you have been thinking of getting one of these, I highly recommend it. The Apps are amazing, the content available is unbelievable, and its FUN!
  • Finally, a terrific local library with an amazing staff. Yesterday morning the librarian GAVE me, for keeps, two books that I have checked out and renewed so many times because they received donations of the same titles (I got the new ones =] ) which are The Firefox Book 1 for back-to-the landers and The Living Simple Guide. I also am in awe of our collection and the ease of inter-library loaning things. 
That's it for this week, everyone. Have a blessed weekend and see you next Friday!


  1. What a great local library! That's a real blessing.

    I have an iPod Touch too -- not the new one, but it's fun.

    Congrats on the job and have a good weekend!

  2. Enjoyed your fave five! I can't believe your new tennis shoes are killing your feet! Are you going to take them back? I buy New Balance and they are real comfy!

  3. I buy New Balance, too. Love them! However, I admit that my New Balance flipflops gave me blisters the first time I wore them (on a 3 mile walk).

    I LOVE the Foxfire books too! I read them from my library in Oregon, but here in SoCal the library doesn't have them :( Simple Living Guide--read that one too!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Another New Balance lover, here! Although I don't do any running. I have a pair of Nikes and they're just not as comfy as my NB.

  5. Well that was an unexpected blessing at the library. How nice of them to do that. I love my library too.

    Hope your feet feel better. Seems the other ladies like New Balance. I'll have to give them a try too.
