Five Friday Happy Bringers (11/7/14)

What an Incredibly Beautiful Morning here by the sea on Amelia Island (Florida’s northernmost beach).  It’s sunny, with a bit of wind, and a crisp 59 degrees.  The Atlantic, outside my window, keeps stealing my attention with its choppy dance.  Weather joy.  I’m working on the blog a bit before heading to my favorite island breakfastery (can that be a word?), Bright Mornings in historic district Fernandina Beach.

And here’s what else is happy-causing for me:

1.  Attending last night’s Susan Boyle concert in Jacksonville’s Times-Union Center.  Oh my goodness, that lady can belt out a tune!

(WHY do some folks chortle loudly when I tell them what concert I was attending?!)

2.  By far the best chicken soup I’ve ever had in my short life at Joe’s Homemade in Savannah on Tuesday for lunch (that’s a lot of prepositional phrases in a row there).

3.  Having Harry Potter and Spiderman as grandsons.

4.  Riding the spectacular SkyView Ferris Wheel in Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park last weekend.

The views (even on a rainy evening) really were amazing.
