Friday Favorite Things

friday favorite things | finding joy

These are remembrance of my favorite things this past week.
My Prescott daughter came down to visit Sheridan, who lives with me, so while he was out and about we went out to dinner at Chevy's--fresh Baja style Mexican food.

Then we went to a movie, saw "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"  a Swedish film--had two story lines that didn't merge til the middle of the movie.  It had sex that wasn't necessary to the story line, a weak plot, but I enjoyed being with my daughter.

Monday morning--the full moon setting as viewed from my front yard.

A few minutes later the sun rising as viewed from my back yard.

Monday morning, grandson on his way to work.  He is doing so much better.  For those of you who are new readers, he was in a near fatal traffic accident on Christmas eve morning, broke his jaw and crushed all his facial bone, was in ICU for three days, had two major facial reconstruction surgeries, and had his jaw wired shut. Now just two weeks later he is resuming his job.  He still has a long road to full recovery, but is well on his way.  Ah, the resilience of the young.


  1. Isn't it amazing how the body can heal! Good news about your grandson. Sounds like he's making great progress. BTW, love the photo of the moon through the trees.

    1. One of the best things about living in Phoenix is the beautiful skies, both morning and night.

  2. I am a new reader of your blog. Sounds like it was a good week for you. I haven't quite figured out all the hype about that movie - from your description I'm glad I skipped it. Wonderful news about your grandson.

  3. Now I'm rethinking seeing The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The book had two main story lines that didn't really go together too. I was hoping the movie would be just one of them, and while less than the book, better.

    If you haven't read the book, the gratuitous sex is true to the book. :P

    I've read better recent books to make movies out of!

    But you're right about the company making all the difference!

    I love the view from your front yard! Palm trees...ahhh....

  4. Glad you had a fun time with your daughter! That's always good for the soul, isn't it? Super happy to hear that your grandson continues to improve.

  5. I am so glad that your grandson is recovering so nicely. That is sure an answered prayer.

    I decided to not go see The Dragon Tatoo after hearing the reviews about the sex thrown in "just because". Did you know there was a Swedish version of the film that came out several years ago? I saw bits and pieces of that one.

    Hope you have a good weekend- xo Diana

  9. My hubby read the book while he was in Afghanistan. He said someone sent over tons of the book for the soldiers and everyone was reading them so he gave it a try, but has no desire to see the movie. Dinner sounded fun! Glad your grandson is back to work. That is amazing!!!
