Friday 5 for the 23rd: Inflation

Friday 5 for January 23: Inflation

Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5! Please copy these questions to your webspace. Answer the questions there; then leave a comment below so we’ll all know where to check out your responses. Please don’t forget to link us from your website!

Sorry I’m late. Hectic week.

What are your thoughts on balloons?

Balloons are great, as long as they don't cause problems for birds,motorists or airplanes.   Balloon payments truly SUCK though.  They are predatory lending vehicles.

What has anyone said recently to inflate your ego? 
My ego never gets inflated anymore by what someone has said.  They just don't even try but it is nice to get a compliment now and again.

What’s something that recently let the wind out of your sails?
It was another medical thing.  But, I must say, it helped put everything in perspective, and the waters calmed.   I am just enjoying that no end.

What inflatable items do you have in your home?  Not a single thing in my home inflates.

Besides gasoline (because we’re all pleasantly surprised by that), what’s something whose price has been a surprise?  I was shocked by the price of lettuce, but then, there's a drought going, and almost half of the farm fields are farrow.

Thanks for participating, and have a breezy weekend!


  1. Good list....I hear the compliments still, but just don't let them inflate my ego. Maybe the older we get the more compliments just don't matter to us anymore. For the most part :)

  2. You got that in one, Paula! Thanks for visiting and for the comment. Have a nice weekend full of tiny joys, or even big ones, and may you walk with beauty all around you.


I love comments. Sorry about the mods. If you visit and leave me a comment, I will be sure to give you a visit and let you know I appreciated it.

Wishing you " ♥A Sufficiency of all good things♥."
