Friday Five: It's a hodgepodge

Amy's Friday Five: This is where I share with you the 5 things I have learned this week and you just might learn a little something about me at the same time.

1. Sometimes a macaroon and a cup of decaf coffee just has to due for breakfast.

2. It is not fun having to watch my husband lay off our friends. This recession is hitting a little too close to home.

3. I should look outside before starting a crock-pot of beans and before I began making bread. I may have been able to look at the ominous clouds coming our way and known that the power was going to go out. Just maybe. Although I wouldn't expect it to go out for nearly 7 hours. Fun times.

4. Summer vacation is not at all vacation for me. I thought for sure that I would be able to relax, get a break from homeschooling. Nope. Not the case. I think I am more busy. At least with homeschooling I am HOME! Not running around like a crazy lady hauling my kids all over two counties.

5. Blogging pays (well that and exercising). I won. I won big. I am so excited. I think it made my year. Go here to read more.

There you have it - my Friday Five. Have you learned something this week? Please share! Have a wonderful weekend.

Coffee works for breakfast for me most mornings! Oh 7 hours with no electric would be so miserable...its too dang hot here. My AC went out this morning and I am going on 3 hours without it waiting for the tech to get here. Its 100 degrees outside, good times.

you never know what life with bring you. I learned this yesterday with the two deaths.

I have coffee every morning! I would freak if we would lose power that long -- it is way to hot. But it is hurricane season so there is always a chance we could be without power for several days. Thanks for coming by today.
