Savor 7 {Saturday} Link-Up ~ 8/31

Savor 7 {Saturday} is back - and you can link up with me! You can read last week's post, if you missed it. I'm keeping it simple by just posting the 7 blessings rather than using any certain categories like I did in the past.

Let's look back at our week and "savor" {to have experience of; to taste or smell with pleasure; to delight in} together. 

7 blessings. 7 experiences, tastes, smells, delights. 7 ways to share, encourage, inspire. 1 for each day of the week. Join me? Write your own post sharing 7 blessings from your week ~ link it up anytime this weekend. If you don't have a blog, share your blessings in the comments - I'd love to hear them!

Savored this week: 

1. Pumpkin Bread! Yes, Fall is on the way! I made 4 loaves of the stuff already - some for church, some for us, some for friends, and some for hubs' coworkers.

2. I love watching hummingbirds in our backyard! Saw a cute one today and it reminded us that we need to put up a feeder for them. Do you have hummingbirds in your yard?

3. More backyard fun - saw a napping squirrel on the fence a couple days ago - so funny to see! Looked much like this one I saw a few months ago, though it was a smaller one...
  4. A Boy Scouts Court of Honor where our son received a few merit badges - proud of the hard work he does to earn those! He earned: Cooking, Blackpowder Rifle, Fingerprinting, Golf, Salesmanship, and Weather. Good job son!

5. James Bond movies on Instant Netflix. Hubs and I are watching some of the old Sean Connery ones - it's been several years since we've seen them. We like seeing the 60's clothes and special effects {not a big fan of his *many* lady friends, of course!}. Gotta love those Bond villains! Do you have a favorite Bond movie or do you dislike them?

6. Are you on Google+? {You can find me here.} I admit, it's hard to learn something new and I haven't done much with it. But thanks to a great series for bloggers by Chef Dennis Littley, I think I'm starting to understand it! If you're a blogger, I highly recommend reading his series {Part 1, Part 2}!

7. The pumpkin spice lattes have already appeared at Starbucks and other coffee shops! And do you know what that means? My annual sharing of the pumpkin spice latte video *starring* me and my friend Kim from Homesteader's Heart! Of course, I don't do much in the video other than giggle...a lot. :D But even if you decide you can't handle the awesomeness of the video, there is a recipe in the post so you can make your own pumpkin spice latte!

What blessings did you savor this week? Post your 7 and link up anytime over the weekend. Even if you don't post {or don't have a blog}, I'd love to hear about your blessings!

  1. I have 2 cans of pumpkin ready for something yummy like pumpkin bread. And I can't wait to watch our video again. It ALWAYS cracks me up. We are just too much. I can't wait for Part 2 one day. *hint hint*
    Oh and I'm not even kidding, we were talking about the James Bond movies yesterday and I said Sean Connery was my favorite. No lie. So when I saw that it just made me realize just how much we are alike. *wink*
    Big I always wondered why they said double O's when I thought they were the number 0 size hugs to you!
