Five Friday Happy Bringers — 6/26/15

What a Joyful June Week!  I hope yours has been too.

1.  Lucking onto the COOLEST tour of Piedmont Park (in Atlanta) the other day.

Here’s wonderful guide Lauren of the Piedmont Park Conservancy:

I learned all about The Cotton States Exhibition which was held there in the late 1880’s and Booker T. Washington’s famous Separate but Equal speech delivered in the park.

2.  Cooling Rain outside my study window yesterday afternoon.

3.  The Supreme Court Decision a little while ago:

4.  Appreciating this s0-true affirmation by Bernard Jordan from his book, The Laws of Thinking.

Yes, we live at the address of our thoughts!

5.  Our beautiful sky.

Five Friday Happy Bringers — 6/19/15

In spite of this …

… I’ve had a Great Week here in The Savannah!

I hope you have too (wherever you are).

[P.S.  Sometimes having a Great Week is simply a matter of looking for the Greatness in the Week.]

1.  Fruits and vegetables.

(The yellowish thingies are young turnips.  Yum.)

2.  Deciding that to embrace the Truly Hip Person I am, I need New, Cool Socks.

3.  Going to 1964, the (early) Beatles tribute show at the Lucas here in Savannah (a two-minute walk from my place), and getting a tad weepy when they sang, “I Wanna Hold Your Hand.”

4.  Buying a new bed for “grand-dog” Spyro:

It’s Friday!  It’s JUNE!  It’s Happy!

Spitting image of his grandfather!

2.  A beautifully invigorating two hours at the Laurel Grove Cemetery here in Savannah this week.  (I had never gone before.)

(Beware:  A rather long mix of pics ahead.)

As I walked through the moss-laden oaks, I was mesmerized by the power of time to take back into the earth all that belongs to her.  All.

Okay, I’ll stop even though I kept taking pictures.  I love cemeteries.  They are such celebrations of LIFE.

3.  Meals this week.  (All from the Forsyth Farmers Market here in Savannah.)

Five Friday Happy Bringers — 5/22/15

MAY — an incredibly joyful month, don’t you think?

Five Reasons for Happy:

1.  An early morning walk along the McQueens-Tybee Island trail (between Savannah and Tybee Island–10 mins from my apartment).

2.  Grandson Daniel in his end-of-year Who Am I? Research Biography presentation.  (He was Paul McCartney, btw.)

(He could only get such coolness from his grandfather.  Seriously.)

The kids had to explain their research, poster-board-presentation-style, to the folks in attendance.

NBDowLB25dzirFOI.jpg

They do that kinda stuff nowadays in 2nd Grade?!  Research?!  All I did in 2nd grade was spend a year of trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to stop crying for mama.

3.  Being a judge for the 2015 Savannah Authors Anthology.  Such fun!

AsVHXGOqvZvYEzXZ.jpg

(I want to be a judge … full time.  And get paid.  Exorbitantly.  Call me if you or yours need high-end judging.)

4.  Getting 2015 Beach Ready.

5.  Seafood at Safe Harbor in Mayport, FL.  (After taking the ferry across the St. John’s River on the south end of Amelia Island.)

Safe, Joyful Weekend ahead to you all!

 

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.

DdMenzFchN6Wr9Gm.jpg

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

KcrIinUDCbHAZqfo.jpg

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?

JUCLkAiVQ4PUj6R1.jpg

(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).

7.  Daughter Amy’s birthday celebration (with a lil help from grandson Gabriel).

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

Yum!

9.  Rejoicing in the incredible ability to breathe deeply.

MAY you have many reasons to smile this Mother’s Day weekend!

Yes, it is, and I do.

Try saying it.

Five Friday Happy Bringers — 4/10/15

“An April Weekend.”  Doesn’t that sound wonderful?  (Although a bit like a Harlequin Romance novel.)

Here are five causers (is that a word?) of my present joy.

1.  A couple more examples of neighborhood nature joy near me in historic district Savannah:

2.  An incredible Easter.  Here are my four grandies–Twin Madison, Gabriel, Twin Matthew and Daniel.

4.  Later, my Easter tradition with Robert of having late Easter evening dessert at a nice restaurant/lounge (The Mansion in Savannah).

5.  The ability to find good.

A joyful April weekend to you all!
