Friday Favorite Things

friday favorite things | finding joy
These are a few of my favorite things this week

Son making beautiful music on the BBQ

Granddaughter showing off her new room (with bf's help)
She did most of the painting herself, now just waiting for
black shades, and then g-ma might make a zebra valance.

Gorgeous plant son gave me for Mother's Day

Cute handmade card from my bff

Baked a bunch of chocolate chip cookies
Oh, oh the cookie monster
must have come during the night

Mama hummingbird patiently sitting on nest
And finally from around my yard

Loving the warm weather


Saguaro cactus at nearby park


Each week, Hilary at Feeling Beachie lists four statements with a blank for you to fill in on your own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her at If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! 
1.       I like to avoid _arguments__ if possible.  I hate conflict and wish that everyone would get along.
2.       Enjoying housework_ is a virtue I do not have.  I consider it a necessary evil.
3.       Sometimes the __old shoes_ are the _most comfortable, even though they may not be the most stylish._
4.       I think that _scallops_ are the best _seafood._


  1. I love the hummingbird picture. I've never seen one on a nest. Have a nice weekend!

  2. Beautiful pictures! Love the "chair" your son is using while waiting for the barbecue! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Scallops are the only seafood I don't like :(

  4. Yes, yes for the old shoes! I don't have the patience to break in new shoes, no matter how cute they are.

  5. I love the chocolate chip cookies!

  6. Love the "temporary" window covering in the grand-daughter's room. A whole new meaning to shabby chic LOL. Totally agree with the arguments and the housework statements. Thanks for the note on my post today. Have a great weekend too.

  7. I loved seeing all the personal pictures of you and your family - now I know you just a little bit better. Nice family! Love, sandie

  8. I can see why all of those would be your favorite things. I love the pink with the zebra print and I think a matching valance would be beautiful! Enjoy your weekend!


  9. I love your pictures!
    And I love some old shoes too, so comfy and worn.
