Five on Friday

It's time for my Five on Friday. I'm going to share some firsts.
 My first first for this week is:
1. I harvest some zucchini. I have four plants that are doing wonderful and this is the first picking of the year.

2.  Another first for the week is my Manx cat Bob had to go to the Vet and spend some time. Wednesday he was acting strange and was hiding in every little dark place he could fine. Now this is not the behavior for Bob. Bob is just barely a year old and he is in full kittens mode, so after having a day of him acting like this I was really worried. I called my daughter who works for a Vet and asked her if I could take him in to see the Vet. That's right there are vet that just specialized in cats. After examining Bob she told me he was very dehydrated from not eating or drinking for the past 24 to 36 hours and due to his other symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea he needed at some fluids and some test to see what would cause this. 
So Bob had to spend the night at the Vet and come to find out he'll have to spend tonight again, he's not quite up to par yet.

Scared little guy

3. My first batch of canned tomatoes for the year. Last year was a lousy year for tomatoes and I was only able to put a few bags in the freezer at the end of the year but this year seems to be more abundant and I am very excited.

Seven quarts

4. I'm on my first listening/read of Harper Lee latest release of her book "Go Set a Watchman".  I'm about 40% through it right now and I'm enjoying it but I'll tell you more after I finish it.

Product Details

5. Our 30's club at Sager Creek Quilt Shop, is going to make "The Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt".

It will take us 18 months to do all the blocks that are in the book and I have my first installment of the first five blocks for this quilt.

Thank you for checking out my fives.

Tomorrow I hope to pick up Bob and while driving to Stillwater I'll be listening to Go Set a Watchman.
And being that it is going to be dangerously hot I plan to get some sewing in.


  1. Hope all goes well for your cat and it is not anything to serious. There is nothing like the feeling of harvesting food you have grown from the garden is there?

  2. Beautiful zuchinni and tomatoes! And wow, look at you canning those tomatoes! They look awesome! Poor little Bob, too. I am interested in what you will have to say about Go Set a Watchman. I had to read The Mockingbird Next Door to prepare myself for accepting the publishing of this book Harper Lee didn't actively wish to publish for so many years. I am ready to read it soon now, and look forward to some reviews from others who have done so. And about the quilt! Looks like an awesome project! I have a quilting blog too that you can access on my sidebar if you ever want to go there and take a look. Enjoyed your Five!

  3. All good things apart from Bob. I hope that he will be much better very soon. Thank you so much for joining in. I hope that you are having a great weekend. xx


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
