Rerun Friday Five

From RevGals!

Summer Reruns Friday Five

It's that time of year when the only new things on television are music/dance competitions (the 21st century answer to variety shows?). Yes, it's the season of reruns.

This week the clock turned back to last fall and the Glee kids went back to school and still got "slushied," and Michael hired his nephew on The Office, which was not something even he would be likely to repeat.

In honor of this annual Time Warp, please share five things worth a repeat. These could be books, movies, CDs, recipes, vacations, or even TV shows.

Five things Worth Repeating

1. The synchronicity of clean sheets, clean blankets, clean pyjamas.

2. The Magnificent Spinster, by May Sarton. I re-read this at least every couple of years. A touchstone book that reminds me of parts of myself, good, good, people that I have known, and dreams both met and unfulfilled.

3. The song, Mystery, on Misa Gaia by Paul Winter and the Paul Winter Consort. AUGH! LOVE this song... it is for a mystical lullaby of love and a celebration of the infusion of God in our world.

4. Reading aloud the Prologue to the Gospel of John.... or any text I know as well that touches-stirs-moves-inspires-brings about an Ahhhhh...home.... in the stillness of my heart.

5. The hug of a missed friend. Yes, to repeat it means waiting again, but that feeling is a grand one.

Oh, clean sheets! I love that one!

I'll have to put the book on my list--thanks!

Faith Hope and Cherrytea said...

reminders + intros - thank you :)

I'm also putting that book on my summer list. Clean sheets dried on the clothes line are what I love! Hugs, too, like #5.

1) Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury, because he captured how summer feels when you're a kid, which is how we should all feel, all the time. Oh, the promise!

2) Tapioca pudding - still warm and sprinkled with cinnamon, because that's the way my grandmother served it.

3) Berries, especially in cobbler, especially still warm, with vanilla ice cream melting alongside.

4) Stories of family and friends

5) Terms of endearment - because none of us can hear them too many times!
