RevGalBlogPals Friday Five: Quick Pick Edition

Greetings all!

We're in the midst of 'it' and I'm hoping that it is not just me who is starting to get a bit overwhelmed. So for today I am asking for five quick picks of things that are good in your life. And as a bonus, 1 pick for a thing you could do without.
If you want to describe them? Great.
If not? That's fine too.

Good in my life: Tax return, the @BronxZooCobra feed (totally cracked me up), morning coffee that I wisely did not give up for Lent, Jesus and Peeps.
Thing I could do without: love handles (not that I am actively doing anything to be rid of them, but if they would just go away of their own accord, I could be okay with that.)

If you play, let us know in the comments so that we can read yours. Can't remember how to make that pesky link? Here's an old html 'how to' or... if you use blogger, when you write your post do the following:
  1. At the bottom of the post type in: I did my quick pick here.
  2. Highlight 'here' and then hit the little globey thingy on the blogger toolbar.
  3. In the box that shows up, type in your blog's url.
  4. Go to the 'edit Html' tab and scroll down to that sentence.
  5. Cut the sentence and the code that surrounds it.
  6. Go to this post, click 'comments' and then paste the html you just cut from your blog.
  7. Click 'preview' to make sure it worked, and if it didn't don't worry. I'm working on a sermon which means I will be finding ANY excuse to read blogs instead and will not let a silly broken link keep me from my appointed rounds.
  8. This officially makes the link 'how-to' section longer than the Friday Five post.
  9. But now I need 10.
  10. :)

Have a great weekend!


  1. Friday Five:
    Olafur Arnalds (beautiful classical music found on iTunes)
    Fresh onions from the farmer's market
    Holy Spirit moments (ie. little 'aha' moments while writing a sermon)
    Honest talks with Dad
    Good news on my best friend's food blog
    Things I could do without: evening meetings that get in the way of my kickboxing class

  2. more quickly than usual (I often start but get so bogged down and detailed that in the end I don't post) I played this time-- thanks, Kathryn!

  3. Thanks for this kathyrn, my pick is over here

  4. AJ - love those Holy Spirit moments, thanks for playing.

    I played too, but couldn't figure out how to do the link. ;)

  5. You can see my quick pick... umm, again... over here.

  6. kzj, you are teh funny.

    Processing Counselor played, but somehow her comment ended up on another post.

    I'll be with you as soon as I call in a cancellation to the local TV stations. Yes, we're having a snow day. No joke!

  7. I played here. Kathryn, thank you for a perfect Friday Five for today!

  8. I put my five things here!
    I may have put mine in the wrong place, the first time.

  9. My sand box is here. Come play with me!

  10. May be my shortest Friday Five ever


  11. With a late start to a busy morning I’ve got to be quick! My picks are here!

  12. a perfect day to get back into blogging! thanks kathrynzj!

  13. @AJ, thanks for the giggle -- just imagining getting some of those irritating meetings confused with the kickboxing class had me in fits. simple minds and all :)

    I played Here

  14. I'm going to put my quick picks here, instead of my blog:

    1. This beautiful city.
    2. My really cool daughter.
    3. Her open, welcoming friends.
    4. Chinese Chicken Salad from Comfort's in San Anselmo.
    5. Knowing Blue Eyes is waiting back at home for me.

    Bonus: I really didn't pack warm weather clothes, and it is HOT here.

  15. Jules, great list. Glad you're getting this time with your daughter.

  16. Hey Jules,

    I am envious...Chinese Chicken Salad from Comforts...on of my favorite's from my time there as well.

  17. I managed to do the Five while it's still Friday!

  18. A day late, I know. but I picked five at signs-along-the-way.
    And yes, I'll try to link next time!
