Friday's Fave Five, October 1, 2021

1. October
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, October 1, 2021
October is my favorite month of the year! The Summer's heat is gone, and Winter is not here yet. 
I especially like this calendar from Blue Letter Bible. Each month has a nice photo, a Bible Verse, and at the bottom of the page, a brief devotional on the scripture.
"For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart." Hebrews 4:12

2. Book Club
Our book club selection for October is 'Heart and Soul' by Maeve Binchy. Last month we read 'At Home in Mitford' by Jan Karon.

3. Senior Citizen's Bingo
I'm a winner! About a dozen of us older folks get together once or twice a month to play Bingo just for fun and fellowship. We moved the tables farther apart, and we all wear masks. There is no charge to play, but those who want to can donate small prizes. On Wednesday I won a box of cheese crackers! They are very thin and crispy - a tasty snack.

4. Fresh Fruit
They say "An apple a day keeps the doctor away!" but I prefer oranges.

5. Living with Diabetes
I am especially thankful for food made especially to help us diabetics control our blood sugar! I pour chocolate Boost on my morning cereal instead of milk.

Have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend!

  1. Congratulations on winning the crackers. It’s fun to win even it the prize isn’t all that grand. Those crackers look really good though.

  2. Any prize you win is a thrill! October just reminds me that winter is coming so I'm not thrilled by it. We are having a beautiful fall day though.

  3. I have always preferred apples to oranges, but then I was indoctrinated. Apple farmers in the extended family.

  4. My fruit for keeping the doctor away is neither apple nor orange, but cactus prickle pear.I even put it on my blog's sidebar.

  5. Interesting series. The senior’s Bingo sounds like a great way to socialize.

  6. Hurray for winning the crackers. It's fun to get together just to enjoy games and fellowship.
    I didn't know that Blue Letter Bible has a calendar.
    My motto would be 'a banana a day...'
    Enjoy your weekend!

  7. How fun that you won the crackers. It's nice to get together regularly to have some fun with friends. I love calendars with scripture. I have Maeve Binchy books in my pile but have never read one. I'll have to get to them. My fruit that I would eat if I had to everyday would probably be mango or pear. Have a great weekend.


I enjoy your comments!
