Five on Friday

I'm a little late with this, but I'm getting there.  My new splint and the pain meds are making life much more comfortable.  So I'm joining in with Amy at Love Made My Home and the other bloggers for this week's Five.

First:  My new Sous Chef, Mac.  I can cut and peel, but I can't chop so he's taken over the job and like the Swedish Chef on the Muppets has thrown himself into the job.




Second:  One-handed an all, I managed to make Gingerbread Men this morning.  The first batch was made with whole wheat flour, because isn't that healthier?  Well, they look good, but taste like nothing.  The second batch was made with regular flour and taste much better.





Third:  My Christmas Amaryllis is blooming its head off.  The one from last year is growing, but don't know if it will bloom, so we bought a new one and it's just gorgeous.





Fourth:  I have a new set of candles, they're battery operated so I don't have to worry about Miss Kitty knocking them over.  She tries really hard not to knock things over, but accidents happen.









Fifth:  I bought a new Christmas tray when we were out shopping yesterday, don't know what I'm going to use it for, but it was only a dollar and too pretty to not buy.







That's my 5, hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  1. My amaryllis is all of three inches tall! I'm hoping it'll be a lot bigger by Christmas, but I doubt if it'll be flowering by then.

  2. I think you should use the Christmas tray to display your gingerbread men :-) I hope your arm is healing well and doesn't cause too much pain. Thank you for your kind comment on my last post, I was very touched to read your words. Have a lovely Sunday. x

  6. Beautiful things and healthy food is often not so very yummy...
    My mother likes amaryllis and has a lot of them, during decades they are blooming again and again, I'm not so sucessful with them.
    I like the painting in the header.
    Have a good time and get well soon for your hand

  7. Glad your arm is feeling more comfortable with the medication and splint to ease it. Your gingerbread men look wonderful to say you made them with one hand. Love the tray and your beautiful candles:)

  8. I'm most impressed that you managed to bake one handed. Your amaryllis is beautiful, I haven't bought one this year and I'm missing it already.

The kitchen smells heavenly.  I made vegetable beef soup, think it's the first time I've done that.  It's for lunch tomorrow and...
