Five on Friday - October 9, 2020

Hello Friday!  This week flew by and I'm so excited for the weekend.  We don't really have anything outrageously fun happening, but I'm still looking forward to working on a couple projects around the house I'm in the middle of. 

Let's take a look at this week's five ~

1.  Krispy Kreme Halloween Donuts
They're back!  Krispy Kreme's Halloween donuts are available now and they are so darn cute!  There's Wolfie (original glazed dipped in chocolate icing and decorated like a werewolf), Frank (original Kreme filled dipped in green icing), and Drake (raspberry-filled).  To make it even better, participating Krispy Kremes are offering a buy one dozen, get another dozen for $1 deal every Saturday in October.  If you're ordering online, use the promotion code SweetOrTreat at checkout.  Buy a dozen to keep and get one to share with your neighbors!  

John Grisham's final installment in the Jake Brigance legal thriller series is coming out Tuesday.  Here's the summary from Amazon ~
Clanton, Mississippi. 1990. Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a deeply divisive trial when the court appoints him attorney for Drew Gamble, a timid sixteen-year-old boy accused of murdering a local deputy. Many in Clanton want a swift trial and the death penalty, but Brigance digs in and discovers that there is more to the story than meets the eye. Jake’s fierce commitment to saving Drew from the gas chamber puts his career, his financial security, and the safety of his family on the line.

In what may be the most personal and accomplished legal thriller of John Grisham’s storied career, we deepen our acquaintance with the iconic Southern town of Clanton and the vivid cast of characters that so many readers know and cherish. The result is a richly rewarding novel that is both timely and timeless, full of wit, drama, and—most of all—heart.

Bursting with all the courthouse scheming, small-town intrigue, and stunning plot twists that have become the hallmarks of the master of the legal thriller, A Time for Mercy is John Grisham’s most powerful courtroom drama yet.

There is a time to kill and a time for justice. Now comes A Time for Mercy.
Sounds like a great book and a series that would be a great fall read!  Get your copy HERE.


3.  The War with Grandpa
There's a new movie opening this weekend and it looks adorable.  Robert DeNiro is starring as the grandpa.  His grandson is forced to give up his room and devises a series of outrageous pranks in an attempt to make him move out.  We haven't been back to a movie theater since they reopened.  Have you?  This film looks cute enough we just might consider going.

We have been working on some upgrades to our master bedroom closet and this drawer liner is on the list of things I want to install.  I have a small dresser in the closet and would love to line the drawers with scented paper.  They come in Fresh Linen, English Lavender, or Rose.  What a better way to wake the senses and bring something special to the every day!

5.  Some days...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I'm crossing my fingers that I'll stay motivated enough to make big strides in the closet.  Also on the agenda is making a few cards.  Activity in my craft room has been pretty dormant lately.  Hopefully, that will change this weekend!  Pop in next week for the details.

Linking up with:


  1. Last I checked the few movie theaters that opened near us were only showing older movies and not selling any foods or drinks so it didn't seem worth going back. This does sound like a cute movie though.

  2. My craft room has been neglected too! I'm off Monday so thats where I'm hoping to spend my day. Have a great weekend!

  3. The movie theaters just opened up again here TODAY! They aren't showing much, but the do have War with Grandpa! The decoration on those donuts is amazing! If I had a taser I would have gone to prison a long time ago... lol. Happy Friday!

  4. Thank you for sharing a picture of those doughnuts. I heard an ad about them but missed most of it and didn't realize that the doughnuts at Krispy Kreme are so cute. My granddaughter would love them.
