Five Friday Happy Bringers — 5/8/15

I love the month of May.  There’s something hopeful, potential, expectant about its very name, “May.”

And here come a few more of my Joy Causers this week:

1.  Granddog Spyro.

2.  The difficult (for me) but truthful freedom of this declaration:

3.  Incredible sand art outside one of the classroom buildings at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design).

This is a collaborative class project called “The Art of the Spectacle.”

4.  Loving every moment of Grandson Daniel’s performance in the Savannah Children’s Theatre Dance Program Recital, “Dance Around the World” last weekend.

Can you see D in the lower right hand side of the dance teacher’s selfie?

(Shouldn’t that really be called an “usie” or a “themsie”?)

5.  Coffee and beignets at Huey’s on River Street this morning.

Okay, I LOVE New Orleans, but our beignets here in Savannah are fritters better than theirs at Café du Monde.

YOU SIMPLY MUST KEEP READING BECAUSE I HAVE A FEW MORE THAN MY USUAL FIVE HAPPY BRINGERS.

6.  Enjoying the simple beauty of the community Trustees Vegetable Garden (across from my place on East Broad Street here in Savannah).

8.  Robert’s homemade (first time ever) egg rolls.

Yum!

Five Friday Happy Bringers — 2/7/14

Feb1

I love February, even though it’s just SO hard to spell. But once I got the word spelled correctly, after four or five attempts, I was all set to be happy. So here goes. Five reasons.

1.  Coming to terms with having a pirate as a grandson

2.  Thursday morning, walking a couple of blocks down to Huey’s on the river, and having Savannah beignets (SO much better than Nawlins’) and coffee ALL BY MYSELF.

Oh my goodness, so good!  (And don’t make fun of my journal.)  (Girls have diaries.)

5.  Making the most delicious, nutritious soup from fresh baby portabellas, vegetable stock, onion and garlic
