Friday Five

There used to be Friday cat blogging, Friday fun, and on Twitter, Friday follow. I bring you Friday five, lists of five things, mostly random.

Five things I’m thankful for this week:

  1. Friends near and far who’ve let me know they care.
  2. Nuclear and extended family
  3. Having enough
  4. The ability and motivation to learn and change
  5. My pets, who love me no matter what

Five things I want to do:

  1. Finish painting the bedroom (today maybe!)
  2. Use my new mixer to make something yummy
  3. Do something fun with my kids
  4. Prepare a month of classes–ha!
  5. Finish decluttering the main areas of my house

Five interesting things I found this week:

  1. An article about how we view our past and future selves: NYTimes: Why You Won’t Be the Person You Expect to Be
  2. Tenth Grade Tech Trends — Product Design — Medium
  3. Different ways of looking at New Year’s Resolutions: Alternatives to the New Year’s Resolution
