Friday Favorites, Fill-Ins And Being Grateful

gratitude, mindful living, blog hops

Welcome to my Friday Favorites, Fill-Ins And Being Grateful posts! I hope you had a wonderful week, just like I have, and are ready to dive into the business of the weekend.

My Friday Favorites: 

  1. Food – oh I am always looking for fast and easy ways to prep breakfast ahead of time. This is the meal I struggle with the most, always longing for something sweet, but the temptation of reaching for something non-healthy is large. I mean huge, lol. So I love this video from The Domestic Geek, who makes the most delicious breakfast parfaits, I have ever tasted. Check it out:



  2. Books: I am currently reading the book Shaken by Susan Hatler, which I am totally in love with. It is a Young Adult novel, which I usually do not read, but this one intrigues me, as it has a paranormal aspect, I find very interesting. It is available on Amazon, and I will write a complete review about this book, once I finished it on my book blog Within The Pages Of A Book
  3. Grammys: I am actually looking forward to the Grammy’s this year, because of a few things. First of all, there is a George Michael, and Prince tribute scheduled, but they are being very tight-lipped about it. I really want to see who is going to sing their songs. AND my favorite band Pentatonix is nominated for a Grammy. So far they won every Grammy they were nominated for, so I am looking forward to seeing them win.




Friendly Fill-Ins Week 40

This week’s Friendly Fill In’s gave us the following sentences to finish:

  1. My favorite kind of cookie is _________________________
  2. __________________would play me in a movie about my life
  3. Love is _____________________________________
  4. For Valentine’s Day, I _____________________________


  1. My favorite cookies are my Grandmother’s butter cookies. I  could eat those for days. I shouldn’t, but I could. And if you give me a pile of them, I probably would.
  2. No actress would play me in a movie because it would be one confusing movie. Trust me, I write scripts, and I would be embarrassed to hand that script to people. No coherent plot. Maybe in a few years, this will turn into a pretty good underdog story, and then you can ask me this question again.
  3. Love is trust. Without trust, there can not be love. I have had my trust broken too many times, to not value it above else. I love myself too much to not demand that my partner is someone whom I can trust.
  4. For Valentine’s Day, I am going to work. Doesn’t sound romantic I know, but I rather work. And read. Which is exactly my kind of day. Would not want to do anything else.

My gratitude list this week includes a continuation from last week. Finally, finally, after almost two years, my mother’s affairs are in order. Now everyone can move on with their lives. I am grateful that at the end everything went smooth.

I am also grateful for the shopping service we are using now. I will write about it more, but I have had the first Whole Foods delivery a couple of days ago, and that was awesome, even if the poor guy could not find a couple of items I wanted.

Speaking of shopping, I am also grateful to have finally found an organic veggie delivery service here in Las Vegas that does not cost an arm and a leg. As you can see, I like my stuff delivered to my home, I simply don’t like wasting my time shopping, and the closest grocery store lacks in the produce department. So instead of driving to a better store, I just have it brought to me. This company promises to deliver a large box of organic fruit and veggies once a week. I am going to write more about it, once I received my first order, which is supposed to be here next Friday.

Question: How do you save time shopping? Do you take advantage of personal shoppers or grocery delivery systems like Amazon Prime Now?

  1. What amazing looking parfaits! I really liked your answers to the fill-ins. Trust is crucial. A sense of humor helps too. I’ve never had supermarket food delivered although we have great ones that do. I live in a big, confusing development and few buildings have numbers on them (a quirk of Egypt). It’s excellent that you found good places that deliver. Have a great weekend!

    1. thank you, Lexa – yes, I could see how that could get confusing. I often get calls from delivery people trying to find our apartment, and everything is clearly marked, so I can understand how confused they would be, where you live. Many blessings!
