Five Friday Happy Bringers — 9/11/14

Summer is slipping away.  Can you believe that Sept 22 is the First Day of Fall?!  Would someone please tell Savannah’s daily temperatures that bit of info?

1.  Even though it caused a catch in my throat, seeing the pics my daughter Emily sent of the grandtwins yesterday morning — September 11.

2.  Actually borrowing an egg from my next door neighbor.  (Is it okay to still do that?)

(Of course she put the egg in a cute tiny bowl she found in Italy.)

I paid Vivian back with some Werther’s Originals–Chewy Caramels in the same bowl.  (Is that normal?)

3.  This green lion who (which?) lives nearby in Savannah’s historic district.

4.  Taking four-year-old grandson Gabriel to his first-ever tennis lesson.

Looking back at me, “Abu,” to make sure I’m watching.

5.  And speaking of Gabriel, when I picked him and brother Daniel (7) up from school yesterday, G told us that he made a BIG picture of Batman in pre-K art class.  When we got to his house, of course we hung it in the dining room.

After a few minutes, big brother Daniel, after pointing out that Gabriel had spelled Batman with an M (Matman), said to me, “Matman sure looks like a monkey to me.”

Gabriel screamed, “IT’S BATMAN!”

Happy Friday Folks!

 

 

 

 

The Greening of the Square

This afternoon at 2:00, I participated in my first Christmas Greening of Washington Square, the beautiful square near my new place in Savannah’s historic district.  Twenty-two squares make up the heart of Savannah’s large historic district.

Folks from the neighborhood (called a ward here in the historic district) decorated the lamp posts in the square and the banisters of houses facing the square.  What a wonderful way to get the holidays started.

What neighborly joy!

Neighborly

A terrific affirmation about where we live:

Sometimes I Get a Little Crabby

The other night I moseyed over to neighbor Alloceia’s for her master’s degree (Miss Smarty Pants) graduation party.

And for the boiled-in-a-big-ole-pot-in-the-backyard crabs!
