Five Friday Happy Bringers (4/12/13)

Friday, Friday, thank you for heralding happiness this week.

1. Driving back up on Wednesday to Statesboro and Georgia Southern University for the annual Retirees Recognition Ceremony. Retirees who have given ten years or more service to GSU have their names on plaques that are put on the wall at the Builders of the University Terrace.

And who said there’s no such thing as a free lunch?

(Okay, maybe I put in a few years for that lunch. But the ham was good.)  What a beautiful day!

2. Aspiring (great emphasis on “aspiring”) to live the rest of my life by this quote from the novel I’m currently ready–The Light Between Oceans: “It isn’t safe to put off what matters.”

3. Walking down stairs …

4.  The incomparable aroma of onions sauteing in olive oil.

5.  Attending SCAD’s 15th annual International Festival in Savannah’s beautiful Forsyth Park.
