High Five For Friday- 11.12.15

Woo hoo!  Hello weekend!  It was a pretty good week.   Here are the highlights:

1.)  Work went fairly well this week.  We were busy, but I had enough time to get everything done.  I am starting to get back on to the paperwork side of things, as it is my responsibility once again.

2.)  Hubby had a busy week at work.  We are grateful that things seem to be picking up again because work was so slow over the past year!

3.)  I had a fun day with some friends.  A friend invited us over with our kids and we made salt dough ornaments.  We also decorated cookies.  It was a fun day.  The kids enjoyed it and so did the Moms!  

4.) After we were done making ornaments, we walked down to see the "CP Christmas Train".  Every year the CP Christmas train stops in different communities.  They help the local food bank collect donations and CP gives a cheque to each local food bank.  The train is decorated with a bunch of lights and has a car set up as a stage.  There were two singers and a band performing Christmas songs.  It was really wonderful.  Miss. E's eyes light up and she really enjoyed the music.

5.)  I started reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing  by Marie Kondo.  I know that I am way behind other bloggers in reading this book.  So far I am really enjoying it and I have decided to try out her method.  I will be basing a Minimalism Series on my efforts to implement the KonMari method in my own life, starting in January.

How was your week?  Link up with the lovely ladies below to tell us all about it!


  1. The Christmas Train sounds like such a fun and festive event! I'm glad you were able to enjoy it this week. Yay for good weeks at work. Can't wait to hear what you learn from the minimalism series - I haven't read that book either. :)

    1. It was a ton of fun! I am excited to try the minimalism method. It should be interesting, anyway! ;)
