Five Friday Happy Bringers (7/19/13)

Here are five things I’m happy about this warm July Friday in South Georgia.

1.  My newfound love of KALE–here sautéed with onions and garlic.

How else can you eat it?  Anybody know?

2.  Six-year-old Grandson Daniel pretending to be part of an Office Depot sales associates meeting yesterday.  (He got bored when his mother and I were doing some shopping.)  (And he has his grandfather’s sense of humor.)  (I thought it was a lot funnier than the Office Depot folks did.)

Right after I took that picture, Daniel asked me if we could go look at speaker eggs.  Huh?  What?  I’d never heard of such a thing.

How does a kid know about such devices?!  When I asked him, he said that EVERYBODY knows about speaker eggs.  I couldn’t decide if I was proud of him or wanted to spank him.  A little while later, when he asked, “Abu, how old will you be when I’m twenty?” I knew I wanted to spank him.

3.  Eating dinner in a balcony.

4.  Lying down in your bed at night, putting your head on your pillow, and going to sleep.

5.  Savannah Clouds.

  1. Love kale! Sautéed is always good — yours looks great! I like to add it to soup. It holds up better to the heat than spinach does. You can also use it raw in a salad. Some people make kale chips but I can’t convince myself that would be good. You can find information on how to do that online.

    • Bob and Rogene! Thanks for your comment. I’ll definitely add kale to soup now. Do you have other greens you use in recipes? I’m trying to eat more of them. And I LOVE what you are doing on your site; we need vacations for the soul. Thanks for helping to make the web a more joyful, healthier place!
