Friday Favorites - The Middle of September

September 20, 2019

Hello Blog Friends and Happy Friday!

I can't believe it's already the middle of September.  😲

1.  Lunch Date

I enjoyed another lunch date at a local cafe in our neighborhood.  This cafe makes such healthy sandwiches and this time I had a falafel sandwich with a small salad.  We shared the yummy sweet potato fries. 

2.  Out Smarting the Squirrels!

The squirrels had been eating my tomatoes as seen below.  It was so frustrating to see the half-eaten tomato thrown on the ground.  I outsmarted the squirrels and picked the tomatoes before they could get to them!  Haha.

3. Unique Yard

While taking a walk in my neighborhood I spotted this front yard.  I thought it looked so interesting and cute at the same time.

4.  Cute Cat

I recently spotted this cute calico cat in my yard.  It just sat on the ledge looking at me.  :)

5.  Rice Cooker Purchase

We tested out a new mini rice cooker.  It works great and it was only $15 on Amazon.  

6.  Barnes & Noble Cafe

We had our once a month meet up two weeks ago at Barnes & Noble Cafe.  I enjoy seeing my friends once a month to knit and crochet in the cafe.  I started making a crochet baby blanket a few weeks ago and this project should keep me busy for a while.  

7.  The Goldfinch Movie

I read the book The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt back in March.  The book was over 700 pages long which I enjoyed reading.  I was so happy to finally see the movie last weekend.  The movie is about a young man whose troubled childhood leads him to the world of art forgery after his mother dies in a terrorist attack during his time in a museum while taking interest in a painting called the Goldfinch.  I don't want to give away anymore about the movie but it's a must see.     

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a happy Friday and weekend.
