Friday Favorite Thngs

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

Little g-grand showing off her new high heels

Prescott daughter getting her by choice family ready to go into church
One last picture showing off the clothes g-gramma made

Cinco de Mayo moon in the pines (closest moon has been to earth in 800 years)
A busy bee getting breakfast from my first night blooming  cactus (Hylocereus)
I haven't seen one of these in quite awhile
This sparrow has made a nest in the barn

And this must be a Western Hummingbird.  It is nesting in the cowboy  wind chimes on my front porch.


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.       In the summer _in Phoenix, I am like a bat--I come out at night.
2.       I always _bake cookies when I_know the grands are coming over.
3.       Reading _magazines  makes me _wish that I had more money so I could put a lot of the ideas into practice
4.        I like to live _life to the fullest because  _I never know if it might be my last.


  1. We were "bat" people when we lived in Orlando...the heat and humidity were too brutal during the summer days.

    Love the new look of your blog. It's so bright and cheerful.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I love your pictures and your answers. I also like your new background. I haven't seen one of those planes in a while either!

  3. Amazing Friday favorite things, they make me smile.
    And I like your 4 statements so much!
    And the background is so beautiful and tells so much about this blog.

  4. What fun pictures...especially those of the kids in the matching dresses. Gotta love those!

    I am like a bat ALL of the oh...wait that would be an OLD BAT that can come out anytime- xo Diana
