Little treats – Friday’s Fave Five

Friday's Fave Five I learned long ago that I’m easily pleased with little treats along the way.

God doesn’t specialize only in big blessings; he’s also King of the small ones.

Here are some small things that count as big things to me. My Google Reader

1.  Google Reading instead of Google Scanning 
Occasionally I slow down long enough to actually READ what’s in my Google Reader instead of quickly scanning/deleting.

It’s a guilty pleasure that I rarely allow myself, but I did it a time or two this week and it was a pleasure.

2. Look, Ma! No connection! No electricity
My old laptop would be pooped after 20 minutes with no electricity. On Tuesday I sat in the car for over an hour while Jenna was in a meeting, and the battery on my new laptop never even breathed hard. I was delighted.

3. A 3rd cookie 3rd Cookie
Chocolate chip cookies are never better than when they’re hot out of the oven.

I usually limit myself to two, but a third one doesn’t hurt every now and again, and it sure tastes yummy. D and S

4. One-on-one lunch 
I’m incredibly blessed to live close to my family, including my nine nieces and nephews. So when we get together, it’s usually in bunches.

Until last week. One of my nieces met me for lunch, just me and her, to catch up before she moves to New York for a film internship. It made me feel very special. I’ll miss  her.

5. Learning shortcuts
Keyboard shortcuts are fabulous, once I learn them. I’ve decided this week to add another layer to the ones I use faithfully. My wrist will thank me later for a few less moves to the mouse.Some keyboard shortcuts 

Investing a little time now to learn something new for later will pay off big in the long run.

MUCH of what we enjoy in life is not big things. God does bless us in multitudinous little ways! Every day. Glad you enjoyed your week!

What a lovely list of fives, Lisa. So many of the shortcuts I use were accidental -- but they are so useful, aren't they? Those cookies look fantastic -- did you save me any?

All good stuff! I would not say no to a third cookie either, they look delicious! So good for you you could take the time to enjoy your niece's company!

Those one on ones are really special aren't they? You get to really drop down.

I'm a little envious of your new battery :) I can't stray far from a plug with my old laptop.

I'm afraid I'm joining your third-cookie club too - my daughter's been doing some cookie baking this week and they have been too yummy!

Happy weekend!

Your third cookie club just found a new member LOL. I use google reader exclusively for the blogs I subscribe to so I can't scan LOL. I wish there was a way to learn the short cuts easily. They save so much time. Thanks for stopping by my playground. I do appreciate it :)

LOVE cookies just out of the oven!

It is nice to have one on one time, especially with someone with whom it doesn't usually happen.

I know a few shortcuts. I need to learn more.

It feels so great to have a new computer battery, especially when the old was was running down.

Have a great weekend!

It's funny we both mentioned chocolate chip cookies in our faves today. It must be a universal favorite.

I ♥ keyboard shortcuts, too!

Brenda said...

I love computer short cuts too, but it takes time to learn them. And what can I say about chocolate chip cookies?! So yummy when they are hot!

Susanne said...

Being close to family and getting to visit in bunches is a blessing indeed.

Long life batteries are great. Twenty minute time limits would be hard. So glad yours is lasting much longer now.

Now I have to go see if I have ingredients for chocolate chip cookies cause I'm having a craving. :v)

Sounds kind-of like God knows YOUR shortcut buttons. ;-)

Lisa, dear sister - I just love your blog notes so very much. They are inspiring, comforting, well-written, and I appreciate all you have to say! Thank you! I love you, Sandy

Lisa notes... said...

San,
Thanks for the sweet note, especially since you are my sister. :-) You need to have your own blog. It would be rich with wonderful thoughts and quotes and faith.

Brenda,
Cute. :-) Yes, God DOES know our shortcut buttons, thankfully.
