Five Friday Happy Bringers 2/10/23

1. The squirrel on our dining room table. HR’s nickname is Squirrel (long story), so I love it when I find little squirrel figurines.

2. The mincemeat pie I made with leftover mincemeat (from Christmas). It was delicious!

The only issue I had with it was the potential murder weapon Robert used to serve it.

3. The ability to taste, TASTE! Sweet, sour, bitter, salty, etc. What an incredible blessing!

4. The camellias blooming all over Savannah this February.

And for some reason I find the blossoms that fall on the ground so pretty.

5. The joy of leftovers.

At least, once a week, Robert and I have a meal with only leftovers.


Make your weekend be so good (in whatever way you define good) that you will have leftovers on Monday.

Robert and I have been enjoying (well, mostly) leftovers from our Thanksgiving family gathering. He likes the turkey heated up, while I prefer it cold (#152 on our list of differences).

The green bean casserole and sweet potato pie may be reduced to near crumbs in our fridge, but not the memories of the fun and laughter from Thanksgiving Day.

Here are a few leftover smiles and laughs.

HR and several grandchildren.

Grandson Daniel finding something hilariously, funny, as he poses with his family.

Adam’s patents joined us.

Ex-wife/Best Friend Donna and our TEN grandchildren!

Daughter Emily’s three beautiful girls.
Daughter Amy also finding something hilariously funny. (Like mother, like son.)

A smiling selfie with HR …

… and his festive holiday pins.

Leftovers can be deliciously fulfilling.
