Five Things Friday

Happy Friday! Sorry for being a little MIA this week. This week went by a lot faster than I realized. Here are five things to share with you today:

1. I’m currently obsessed with peaches. I think the fruit Adam and Eve ate to ruin the hope of us all having a happily ever after had to have been a peach. I mean, what other tree produces fruit this temptingly sweet? I have had one every afternoon for the past week and sadly my bunch was gone when I was making my lunch this morning. So I plan to stock up for the next week and continue to eat as many as I can before the season is over.

2. My first week at work has been great! It’s been a slow start (aren’t all new jobs?) but so far the work I have been assigned has been delightfully stimulating. The only complaint I have is that our office is really cold, but I brought my blanket from home and am settling in very nicely. Thanks again for all the good wishes sent my way this week!

3. I may have found a kindred spirit at work. Is it too soon to declare someone a kindred spirit just four days after meeting them? I need Anne of Green Gables to advise.

4. The weather in Raleigh has been bearable lately. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it pleasant, but it hasn’t been as humid and I dare say it got a little bit chilly this morning on my balcony! Fall is coming soon, I can feel it.

5. Today Dupree is leaving our apartment for good to go back to school. He has been with us since May 9th, which sounds like a really long time! The summer has had its ups and downs, but for the most part it has been a great experience and I have no regrets. That being said, J and I intend to celebrate this weekend that we survived the summer and have the apartment to ourselves.

What are you up to this weekend? I hope you have a great one!

  • I just went back and read your original post called “You, Me, and Dupree.” Taking in a friend in his time of need is a wonderful action. I always admired my friend’s parents, who in high school took in another friend (high school sophomore) who had an unsafe family situation. To me that is truly an example of living your values despite the challenges it might bring.
