My 5 Minute Fridays

Hope For The Weary // Five Minute Friday

It’s that time again, where I get to join the beautiful community of Five Minute Friday writers.  Each week we write for just five minutes on a word prompt. No editing or overthinking.  No worrying about perfection. Just words freely flowing from our heart to yours.  If you’ve never written a Five Minute Friday post, you should. It’s easier than you think (but sometimes a little hard).

This week’s prompt is:

To say that I am tired is an understatement. The last few days work has been very difficult as I’ve fought to keep my eyes open. Not getting enough

The Weekly Spread # 4 – Goopy Chicken

I received a lot of interest from last week’s menu plan, which included one of our family favorites, Goopy Chicken.
