Friday Five

1. Plastic Scrapers

I purchased these from Amazon after seeing a housewife on You Tube using them to clean her glass stove top. I have used razor blades in the past but I worry about injuring myself so this seemed like a good solution. I used them with some Cerama Bright and I was very pleased with the results. You get two scrapers along with refills for the blades.

2. Method Degreaser

I purchased this from Grove Collaborative after hearing it recommended by another You Tube friend. This is great for cleaning around the cook top.  I also used it on my kitchen cabinets with great results. I looked for this product at Target but I could not find it there so I went to Grove for it.

3. Flip Flops

Since ya'll said it was okay to wear flip flops I got this cute pair for the summer. They are Granny Flip Flops as they are made by Clarks.:)  But they are very cute and so comfortable.  I love hot pink as it adds a pop of color to my mostly black wardrobe.

4. New Top

My high school friend, Sharon, told me about some cute tops etc that she had purchased from Amazon. So I went looking at some of their things and I loved this top as it has all the colors I like!! And it will be cute with my black capris. I was happy with this purchase. Their prices are very good as well.

5. Neighborhood Prayer

Sunday afternoon at five, neighbors were invited to walk to the end of their sidewalks for silent prayer. We have a neighborhood facebook page which is a good way to communicate all the neighborhood happenings.  It was so encouraging to look up and down the street as neighbors gathered for prayer. I  hope it is something we will continue to do even when social distancing is over.

I have to take a moment to remember my parents wedding anniversary. Mother and Daddy were married on this day 66 years ago.  I always try to call my mom and tell her happy anniversary. Even though Daddy is in heaven, it is still her anniversary!

Thank you for sharing the items you purchased in your Friday Five today. I always discover something that is new to me, Arlene. What a wonderful idea for bringing your neighborhood together during this time, but by offering silent prayer at the end of every driveway. Happy Anniversary to your Mother and Daddy. Be well!

Arlene, you have such great tips today! I love the flipflops! It is a little too early to wear them in Ohio yet, but we will get there. And, I really liked that you mentioned your parent's anniversary, I did the same for my Mom. My father passed away just shy of their 50th, and so I always knew that day was special to Mom. I also remembered Dad's birthday, I know she always appreciated that. Many prayers to you and yours Arlene, May God bless you and Keep you... And, thank you so much for all you do.

We never forget their anniversary even though much time has passed without them.

Yes, it is still your mom's anniversary! I am sure she loves having you remember their special day. That top is adorable! I haven't shopped for clothing on Amazon for months. May need to go look again! I love your new flipflops! Very cute! Stay well!!

Arlene, all the prayers in the neighborhood are so touching! I think I'm just a klutz because I can't wear flip flops. I always trip with them on. Happy Anniversary to your sweet mother!

Love this post, especially the part about prayer in the neighborhood.
I love that top, and the flip flops too. I think I need the degreaser and the scrapers too. :)
Good to think of your parents on this day. My parents would have celebrated their 60th on Mar 11.

Happy anniversary to your mom and dad! Love the top, I will be going online to look for it. I hope with all going on in the world that prayer will once again be a major focus! Stay safe and healthy!
