friday five: redo, refresh, restore

At RevGals Songbird writes: We're in the thick of it in church life as we approach the end of Lent. Palm Sunday and Holy Week await. In the midst of this busy-ness, I undertook a little redecorating here at RevGalBlogPals and found a new template for us.It's the sort of task I like in the middle of chaos, a chance to redo something, to refresh the way I feel, to restore some sense of order.Please share with us five ways you redo or refresh or restore your body, your space, your blog, anything in your life that needs perking up this week.

1) games of the solitary kind: primarily crossword puzzles and sudoku, though lately I have been a captive of spider solitaire.
2) de-clutter: there's never a shortage of areas in the house that need attention.
3) walk the dog (well, one of them, anyway): I have finally discovered that I need to hit the two-mile mark in order to feel the endorphin release. Burn those calories, baby!
4) a trip to Cheekwood Botanical Gardens (Nashville).
5) cooking: I love to try new recipes or revisit favorites. I've discovered two great new ones lately: pork tenderloin with Gorgonzola cheese sauce (Oh. My. God.), and crock pot pork roast with sweet potatoes, prunes and fresh ginger. I'm not even a fan of sweet potatoes but this one is a total keeper. And good for you!
bonus) laugh! There are some favorite blogs/web sites I visit that I can count on to inspire laughter. This morning I learned of a blog post at Clergy Family Confidential from a facebook friend that I think will amuse the RevGals!

PS - If you haven't already discovered Maggie and McGee, the new stars of cyber space this week go pay them a visit!

Oh my! How sweet! I love Barn Owls... their faces are just so expressive. Can't wait to see the babies. :c)

Prunes, well. Hmm. If it works for you, that's all that matters!

I love spider solitaire - I play it when I'm waiting on my computer to load something. Dr M points out that I'm making the download even slower, but I don't care. Have to be doing something!

Love your pictures, and your study looks tidy to me!

I really like trying new recipes as well. The pork roast/sweet potato looks delicious.

Jan said...

I always love your photos with you posts. Your study looks better than mine!

spider solitare confuses me...but I agree a dog walk is a fabulous way to renew and restore!

Betsy said...
